10 Weird and Wonderful Women Musicians
"There is nothing new under the sun," said King Solomon. He obviously hadn't met Nina Hagen. Or any of the other women on this list, all musicians with talent, originality, charisma and intelligence––not to mention a wicked sartorial style! These women are all their own persons, confident in their individuality, wherever it may take them. 10. Bands & Projects: X Ray Spex Time and Place:1970s London Genres: Punk Quote: If anybody tried to make me [a sex symbol] I'd shave my head tomorrow. Poly Styrene was barely twenty-one when her band, X Ray Spex, released their only album, Germfree Adolescents . Sartorial Style: Poly Styrene ran her own, eponymous fashion label in her late teens. I would go to the DIY store and buy sink chain, which doesn't tarnish and is quite shiny and chrome plated.

13 Business Books That Will Blow Your Mind Having never taken a business class in college I find that I read and listen to a lot of business books to round out my education. The books usually aren't "How to Manage Your Cash Flow" but rather get me to rethink the way I run my business, which--despite no business classes or diploma--continues to be in business 13 plus years after I started it. In that time, here are 13 of the books that had the biggest impact on how I run my business (in no particular order): Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us by Daniel Pink: If you supervise anyone in your business, this book is a must read. It shows that what science knows about motivation, business isn't putting into practice. In fact, many of the incentives we create can actually de-motivate our employees. The Knack: How Street-Smart Entrepreneurs Learn to Handle Whatever Comes Up by Norm Brodsky and Bo Burlingham: I wanted to have at least one book that was dedicated to small business and the entrepreneurial spirit.

Cuando nos conocimos en el 2008 pensé que Oasis había pasado su punto de separación. En ese momento de 2009, ¿ya pensabas en qué harías después? Y una canción como “Soldier Boys And Jesus Freaks" que también es bastante fuera de lo común.Sí. Cuando escribes en tu casa, ¿no te distraen tus hijos? Quizá no tengas que preocuparte.

textsnip - Keep your text & code formatting safe from IM and Email Top 100: Greatest Songs (of All Time) It’s hard to come up with a list of the 100 greatest songs of all time and not leave people out, or be called a “son of a bitch” and other unflattering things by your readers.
