“John Lennon & Yoko Ono Bed-In for Peace”

Ask any girl. Those rules were bent Friday night when I happened upon old flame David Goldman still going strong at his Boy’s Co exclusive opening of “All We Are Saying” – a fashionable evening featuring the original photographs of “John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Bed-In for Peace” by the late photojournalist Gerry Deiter.

These extraordinary photographs, providing the backdrop for the theme of the evening, were on display through the sagacity of the Elliott Louis Gallery’s owner Ted Lederer – who single-handedly dragged them out of Deiter’s vault for a first-time showing on May 26, 2004 – thirty-five years after John Lennon and Yoko Ono went to bed in a suite in Montreal’s Queen Elizabeth Hotel, and invited the entire world to join them in seeking an alternative to violence and war in solving global political and social problems.

May 26, 1969. That month the battle of Dong Ap Bia, a.k.a. Hamburger Hill was exploding in the Vietnam War. Race riots occurred in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. French Foreign Legion paratroopers landed in Kolwezi, Zaire, to

Entertainment As Education and Training

Prisons should be rehabilitation centers. Inmates would be forbidden to watch commercial TV. Entertainment would be OK, but it would be good clean entertainment, not the sexual immorality, drug abuse and violence so prevalent on commercial TV.

Prisoners would also have a menu of cognitive therapy options available to choose from for their rehabilitation. Vocational rehabilitation and other educational opportunities will also be available.

Prisoner selection and progress in such programs will be monitored and considered in their reentry into society process.

I think Wyoming would be a great place to build prisons. Good jobs for Wyoming and placing them out in the relatively empty places in Wyoming would keep them away from society. I just think prisons and the whole rehabilitation industry would be good business for Wyoming.

Reforming Hollywood and other entertainment industry activities is another project we can work on to improve human nature and civilization. I am astonished that people think that murder and rape, and all kinds of human perversity is entertaining.

I guess the scientists who work in Hollywood have discovered

The Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium is located in Calgary, is an installation of 113 000 m³ designed for performing arts. The auditorium is one of two twin auditoriums in the province, the other being located in Edmonton, and the two are nicknamed “The Jube” by local residents. The auditorium seats 700 and it was opened in 1957 and has hosted hundreds of musicals, plays and other productions by local and international companies. On an annual basis, more than 850 000 visitors visit the place.

The Jube is home to the Alberta Ballet, Calgary Opera, the Kiwanis Music Festival held annually on Remembrance Day. The two auditoriums are open 365 days a year and are managed by a community non-profit organization. In September 2005, the two auditoriums have benefited from a renovation of a value of $ 91 million each on the occasion of the centenary of the province.

Calgary hosts many festivals that take place during the year, for example FunnyFest the Calgary Comedy Festival and the Folk Music Festival, which attracts participants from around the world.

Your child has invited some playmates over. They started out laughing and having fun. Next thing you know, the kids are starting to fight over a toy that each one wants to play with. They can’t agree on an activity, and one child may start teasing the other.

What do you do to save the day? Pair the children up with matching play. This is an activity that gives each kid a chance to do something alone, but near each other. As they work, the kids may begin to speak to each other, share their ideas and finally begin to play with each other harmoniously.

An activity that you should try is the shadow drawing game. It is creative, fun and a sure hit with the little ones. If weather permits, have the kids lie down on a sidewalk while you outline their figures with chalk. The children can then decorate their outlines. If the weather is not cooperative, open paper grocery bags and tape them together until your section is large enough to trace each of the kids’ bodies on it. Do the same thing, mark out the kids’ figures and let them color in

‘A poem shouldn’t mean but be”

Is ‘art’ justified if it’s simply loved? Tons of people love twilight but I’m pretty sure most English majors or serious writers across the country hate it- or at least hate the success it receives -why does everyone insist on being served lower form of art?

About a month ago the jazz company River North dance Chicago came to my hometown of Saint Louis. I had seen them perform once before and they were pretty amazing so I had high hopes for the show. It opened with a piece choreographed by Sherry Zunker who has had a diverse career choreographing for everything from contemporary companies to cruise ships. The piece was a good wake up call for the audience, with a lot of dancers onstage dancing all together to a high-energy pop song.

I didn’t dislike it, I would just call it more ‘entertainment’ than ‘art’. Next was a structured improvisation solo work that didn’t move around the stage very much but was dynamic and surprising. I have a pretty good handle of dance ‘steps’ and while I caught

Performing Arts and Entertainment

Entertainment comes in all forms and fashions, from taking a walk in the park to going to your local movie theater. A wonderful form of entertainment that many people seem to overlook is performing arts entertainment. Performing arts entertainment is a great choice for all ages and all types of people. It offers a type of entertainment that going to a movie cannot fulfill. The inner feeling of seeing your favorite musical or play performed by live people is simply exasperating.

When it comes to choosing an event for a group of people, performing-arts entertainment reaches out to a large audience. Whether it is Monday date night and you need something to do together, or a place to take the class for a field trip. Performing arts offers plays for the young and the old ranging from dramas to comedies. The environment is suiting for the entire family and provides a great atmosphere to all.

It is important to not let culture die. Modern day people tend to resort to entertainment from areas that are killing tradition and leading to a dying breed and lack of diversity. The arts will take you back in time and

The Situation: Your child has invited some friends to play in your house. The kids start to run around your home shouting at the top of their voices and going berserk. What do you do?

The Solution: Children who begin to fight or scream a lot just need to move around and let go of some excess energy. So why not channel all that volcanic force into a mini marching band? Get the kids busy making their own musical instruments and paper hats (you can go online to research for directions about paper hat making). Probe your kitchen cupboards for make-up instruments. A plastic bowl and a wooden spoon can be a fantastic drum, while two aluminum lids make for great cymbals. And small plastic containers filled with dry rice or beans can become cool shakers. Once the band is pulled together, ask the children to march around the house or the backyard and play their music. Let them put on their funny hats, grab some bedspreads for capes, and have them march to the beat of their own drums. Literally.

Another Situation: A younger child is wailing and grumbling that her older sibling and playdate

Getting Your Man to Appreciate Theater

If you ask a person what comes to mind when they think about Broadway theatre, they are likely to say is goes hand in hand with images of New York City and its Theater District. New York is certainly the mecca of all things Broadway. However, many major cities and metro regions across the United States have ornate play houses that host the hottest Broadway plays. It used to be that to see quality arts you had to be in New York City, but no more. Opera, ballet, musicals, productions and the works are seen across the country, making it more accessible to fans of Broadway… and their husbands.

Yes, that’s right, their husbands. To be sure, not all husbands or men are fanatically against attending Broadway plays, in fact we all enjoy it equally. It does seem, however, that stubborn men, and especially husbands, protest the most when it comes to accompanying their wives to a musical of any sort. At least, this is the stereotype or stigma that goes along with a ‘macho’ man. So, ladies, how can you convince, bribe, encourage or drag your man to a play and help him actually enjoy himself?

Festival – Culinary Treats, Arts and Entertainment

There is no doubt that Canada is a northern country and that our winters here in Toronto can sometimes be a little harsh. But that’s no reason to hold anyone back from getting out there and enjoying the city to the fullest.

To ease the winter blues, the City of Toronto has developed a series of special events dedicated to bringing the city to life in the middle of winter. The WinterCity Festival is a city-wide celebration of Toronto’s culinary offerings (the popular Winterlicious restaurant promotion), a wide variety of free entertainment events and a showcase of Toronto’s vibrant arts scene, featuring live music, dance, theatre, spectacle shows, rink-side concerts and even aerial acrobatic performances. Throw in a number of child-friendly events, and WinterCity has something for everyone in the family.

I had a chance to talk to Grant Ramsey from the City of Toronto who is one of the key people behind WinterCity and he is providing a much more detailed overview of all the special events, artistic and culinary treats on offer.

The Field of Arts And Entertainment

Nearly everyone enjoys the different types of entertainment, and some people enjoy even more being entertainers. They want to become actors, comedians, dancers, singers. We used to go inside theatres after a hard day’s work to relax and see our favorite plays. But only in the last hundred years have we been able to record sound and pictures and to broadcast them through air. These improvements have brought fun and entertainment to every corner of the world and into most of our homes.

Technology has indeed made it possible for us to see entertainment in a new light. For one, technology has made it also possible for us to store our memories. Actors and singers long dead seem to come to life again every time their films or records are played. We can store a seemingly countless number of these records and films in CDs, hard drives and other storing devices like our computer. This makes it possible for us to entertain ourselves almost anywhere- at home, at the office, at the park, the bus; as long as we bring our devices with us. One can actually live without TV these days as long as one has

Famous or its arts and crafts across the world, this desert land made a great contribution to Indian culture. The skilled artists and craftsmen have long perfected the art of making extraordinary art pieces with ordinary raw material like wood, stone, glass, brass, leather, clay and textile.

Their passion clearly reflect in the forts, palaces, havelis and monuments constructed by them. The architectural brilliance of these establishments have brought them in international limelight.

The other day I was talking to a lady who had her PhD in dance. She was able to teach dance all over the world, and she became a professor. The reality is that many people who get degrees in dance don’t end up making all that much money, and if they dance professionally it’s hard to keep up as they get older, the younger generation just has too much energy and agility to compete with, and your knees only hold out for so long. Not just for dance, you can ask any professional athlete. Speaking of which very few ever make the grade, but let’s talk about that for a second shall we?

You see if you get a degree in fine arts from college or from a major university, it isn’t going to be cheap, and even with all that debt that you’ve racked up in tuition and student loans, the chances of paying it off are slim to none in many cases. Yes, it’s true those student loans will be guaranteed by the US taxpayer perhaps, but they’re still going to want their money back, and will come after you for it sooner or

Vibrant Art and Entertainment Scene

Sydney has long been recognized and renowned worldwide for its vibrant art and entertainment scene as well as for its lively sports calendar and fun-filled year-round festivals.

The Opera House is the centerpiece of Sydney’s performing arts scene and the venue of choice for Australia’s preeminent performances in ballet, opera, music and theatre. There is also the nearby Wharf, the base of such leading performance groups such as the Sydney Dance Company, the Bangarra Dance Company and the Sydney Theatre Company.

The Theatre Royal and the baroque State Theatre regularly stage traditional theater productions while the newly-renovated Capitol is a favorite venue for long-running musicals. The Lyric Theater, Belvois Street and the Showroom, which is housed in the Star City Casino, are other popular entertainment venues. The Ensemble regularly stages productions headlined by popular Australian actors.

For foreign visitors with alternative tastes, we strongly urge a visit to The Stables and the Performance Space. Meanwhile, for a taste of contemporary dance and ballet, the Opera House and the Wharf are excellent choices while The Bondi Pavilion, Enmore Theatre and Seymour Centre are more than worth the visit. Jazz enthusiasts will love the Basement at Circular Quay and Pontoon.

Art and Entertainment in the Dark

The life of the people from middle ages had a big impression of many severe issues. This time period was considered to be a miserable time in history, especially for the agricultural labor class man. That was a time of courageous fearless rulers. The kings and their stunning castles bear command over the countryside. The beauty of these places had continuously drawn visitors from across the globe. Despite of the fact that it had been a tough time for common man, several entertaining arts flowed through the medieval era. Irrespective of the basic living difference between rich and poor, everybody knew the significance of amusement and enjoyed taking a pause from the boredom, when required.

The entertainments were in a varied form. Entertainment sessions are often held at the courtyards of riches, especially the kings and queens. The citizens gathered over here from all over to enjoy the arts performances before them.

The activities comprised of games, sports, music and dance with special attraction for dramatic plays. The new artistic talents received a platform at these places. Entertainment rained at these places with the performances of many Musicians, singers and story tellers.

What is art and entertainment?

Art and Entertainment is a medium which is liked by say by every person both are two sides of the same coin. The only difference it the materials for entertainment have a popular or mass appeal, it can be understood easily by commoners whereas art involves are fined sense of understanding. The, difference between Van Gogh’s paintings and a James Bond movie. One is art the other is entertainment. But the purpose of both is relaxing the mind and generating a pleasurable feeling.

Difference between art and entertainment.

Art includes paintings, poems, sculptures, installations in studios and museums. Entertainment includes Hollywood movies, television serials, theaters, circuses.
Nowadays artists are trying to do more of interactive art so that there creation can reach to all, poems are taking the form of rap songs. Contemporary art is very much interfused with everyday issues, the problems or situations a person goes through. Aphrodite is a classical Greek art. Monalisa by Leonardo da Vinci is renaissance art done on poplar paper and oil paint. Pablo Picasso and Vincent Vangogh contribute to modern art. Postmodern art or contemporary art consists of Installations, Intermedia, Multimedia and

Art and Entertainment As Economic

Not long ago, I was talking to a Chamber of Commerce president from a local community nearby. I explained that the chamber needed an arts and entertainment committee. A small group to put on community events which would help foster the notoriety of some of our local talent. Out here, we have many artists, authors, entertainers, architects, and designers. Many of them are self-employed, some working out of their home, and they need help with public relations, marketing, and they need to develop their reputations. Not to mention the fact that they would have to join the Chamber of Commerce if they wanted to be part of the group.

What about using art and entertainment as an economic development tool? What about using this sector to help put the city on the map, to let the world know that local talent was the cream of the crop? Why not have an author and artist group, and why not put on an event that all in the community could come and see, and have folks from other places come in as well. It would help them sell their work and it would help with economic development.


Arts and Entertainment Scene in Singapore

A long time ago is someone tried to convince me that the art and entertainment scene Singapore was anything but boring, then I would refuse to believe them and tell them to start drinking stronger coffee. But this was some years ago and definitely Singapore has truly been transformed from a slightly mediocre city of bright lights to a lively arts and entertainment destination with a reputation that resonates all over the region and even Asia Pacific.

Lets talk about arts and heritage. The National Arts Council and some other governing bodies have pulled together their efforts and truly created a Renaissance City from almost nothing. Now, not only do we have the buildings, but we have quality acts, plays and exhibitions to show to the world. The National Museum and Heritage Gallery are some locations that boast Asian and worldwide exhibits taken from the best and the brightest from neighbouring countries. As a tourist attraction the architecture of these places and more is a definite draw, but as a purely spiritual attraction, these museums have outdone themselves with creative, innovative and unique exhibitions and performances, indoor and outdoor that has inspired much laughter, applause and wonder.
