Clean Your Cabinets for Best Painting Finish

Do it yourself cabinet painters, if you are wondering what’s the first step to getting a good finish on painting your kitchen cabinets, then you need to consider thoroughly cleaning your cabinets before you do anything else. Cabinets are the least cleaned surfaces in most kitchens. Most people clean their counter tops, stoves, sinks, and backsplash but cabinets are mostly forgotten about.

Cabinets collect all types of contaminant that you might see. Most people cook, when they season meat, they forget one seasoning in the cabinet and with those yucky hands, they brush against the cabinets with their bloody contaminated hands, which they wipe off with a dish rag if they see the residue. If they don’t see the residue then that contaminated area might not get a proper cleaning. In order to clean that sort of contaminant off, you need to wipe the area with a good antibacterial cleaner that is also a degreaser. The same way you wash your hands after you season meat is

Are Poets Born Or Made?

Poetry is one of the most beautiful literary artwork that man has ever made. Aside from its rhyme and rhythm, it has also figurative languages and idiomatic expressions. It also portrays sensory images which the writer tries to reveal through his wonderful and colorful words. Because of these characteristics, poetry does not only entertain but also provokes critical and creative thinking among readers.

To better appreciate poetry one must know what poetry is. Poetry is defined in various authors.

The 3 Types of Music Producers

The professional title of producer is one of the most commonly misused titles in the music industry. This article will cover the three different types of music producers as well as the roles they play within the music industry and inside the recording studio.

What A Producer Isn’t

A producer isn’t a musician that makes his or her own music. The proper title for this position would be a musician, plain and simple. Producers also tend to work with a team of recording professionals, industry executives and reliable musicians to complete a recording project. Because the skills involved in managing a recording project take time to learn and are very demanding, someone who works on their own to create music isn’t typically considered a producer. The title of producer is often wrongfully associated with the roles of songwriters and general musicians.

Executive Producer

An executive producer is generally the person that funds the r

Belly Dancing Is a Sensual Dancing Art

Poetry of Sex

I am deeply thoughtful of poetry, particularly when related to sex. One of the medieval poems that have impressed me is the “Song of Songs”. This song refers to the love between God and the soul. God is deeply in love with us, and wills our love in return. This love between the soul and God, which is the most intimate love possible, is expressed in the analogy of bride and bridegroom, where the intimacy of love is especially expressed. Nothing can be more intimate than this love where a bride and her love enter into a carnal embrace. In history, no book has received such intensely devoted attention in commentary and preaching as this song.

The composer of this song was Bernard of Clairvaux. He was a French abbot and the primary reformer of the Cistercian order. The Song does not have the same importance earlier, but never the less it is a part of modern people’s imagination. Bernard preached eighty-six homilies on the Song and died just as he was getting sta

Never Mind My Politics, Here Is My Philosophy:

“Do life the best you can with the best profit you can get out of it.” Sure, it sounds a little silly, but is it? I mean, life done the best you can in my estimation means just that: Do life the best you can do it without flinching, playing too many games or fearfully being fragile about it. The ultimate weakness also in my reality is genuine loss instead of genuine profiteering, something I will explain a little bit more into the article, but meanwhile I want to explain “do life the best you can” a little more in detail:

Effort without consciousness ends up the ultimate futility like a vehicle that has all kinds of power but does not have a driver to direct it to where it needs to go. It is almost like saying: why build the vehicle if you do not know what to do with the vehicle? In my opinion and reality, that is most politics and bureaucracy, a giant, powerful vehicle without a driver and going straight toward a wall for a crash every time without ex

How Social Factors Influence Our Choice of Music

The music industry has always been notoriously unpredictable, and the old A&R maxim that the cream always rises to the top is far from a given. For any one band that makes a living out of their music, there are at least a thousand that never will – and the proportion of musicians that actually become wealthy through their work is smaller still. There is, however, a general feeling (if not an actual consensus) that those musicians who do make it are there because they are in some way intrinsically better than the swathes of artists left in their wake.

This is reminiscent of Robert M. Pirsigs interrogation of quality – what makes something good, and is there really any objective standard by which such quality can be measured? Most people would say there is, as they can easily tell if a band is amazing or a bunch of talentless hacks – but when it comes down to it, this amounts to nothing more than personal taste and opinion. Although one can point to certai

Supporting The Arts – Why Community Theatre Is Important

Why is it important to support the arts in your community? Looking at the big picture, does it make any difference if you attend a community theatre production?

The answer is yes. Whether it is semi-professional or wholly amateur, Community theatre contributes, not only to the arts but, to your community as a whole.

Firstly, community theatre allows aspiring actors and lifetime theatre hobbyists to come together and hone their craft. It creates a sense of accomplishment and develops a community spirit as cast and crew work towards a common goal. Whether the performers intend to fly off to an audition in New York City after the curtain falls, or simply plan to go home to their families and day jobs, a community theatre production provides its cast and crew with a second family, a support system, and a strong sense of pride in their contribution to the arts in their community.

But a local production does not only give back to those on-stage, it also provides the c
