How does a skinny middle aged man in an ill-fitting schoolboy’s suit have the power to make 60,000 people stand on their feet and chant his name?
He needs to be Angus Young.
As he has been for more than 30 years, Young was the heartbeat of AC/DC’s first concert in Australia since 2001 last night at Melbourne’s Docklands Stadium.
AC/DC again proved they love a big stadium show and pulled out their full range of tricks; their massive stage and light show needs 70 semi-trailers to cart them around the country.
From the fully pyrotechnic opening with the new Rock ‘N’ Roll Train to the encore with the classic Highway To Hell, seats were superfluous.
The bigger the better for Young who, at 54, has the energy of the schoolboy whose suit he stole.
As mighty as Malcolm Young, Phil Rudd and Cliff Williams are in the background, this show is all about Young, magnificently supported by Brian Johnson and his 63-year-old rasping vocals.
Young continually threw himself and his guitar around the stage and up and down a 50-metre catwalk with relentless showmanship. He didn’t stop throughout the two-hour show.
When he was elevated above the catwalk on a hydraulic platform, topless and soaked in sweat for a 20-minute guitar solo, the crowd was in the palm of his hand.
When he had earlier peeled off the first notes of the unmistakable opening to Thunderstruck, the chants went up: “Angus! Angus! Angus!”.
Back In Black was the third song. The crowd then feasted on Dirty Deeds, Thunderstruck, Hell’s Bells, Shoot To Thrill, High Voltage, TNT and more.
I ADMIT THE MUSIC IS A BIT HARSH TO SOME PEOPLE…BUT I LOVE IT!
Charting the impossible. The unseeable.
It is very hard for us to admit that, after all is said and done, we do not really know what will happen. Most, run away from that. It would be admitting that we do not know what tomorrow brings and that is a scary thought for a lot of people.
Some people dedicate their lives in trying to prove themselves right. I see that for most of them, that path only brings suffering and pain.
Sure, some became our greats. Malcolm X. Mandela. Aung San Suu Kyi. Aum Shrinkyo dude with a fetish for pubic hair and nerve gas. Stalin. Lenin. Pol Pot. Ruben Hurricane Carter. John James Audubon. Clara Barton. George Washington Carver. John Chapman.
The history of mankind is fraught with struggle. I look at it in awe and thought to myself, “Why all the drama? Why so serious?”
Can the same things be achieved without drama? Without pain? Without suffering? Can two or more conflicting realities exist side by side and be done with it?
So that’s why, I guess, I put on my blackface makeup. Why I am part of the minstrel show.
Oh, man. The Messiah Complex.
I believe in a God system. We can all explain away the physical existence of everything. What no one can come up with a Darwin theory for, is the evolution of awareness. That thing where you realise, and know, for sure, that you are here, right now, sitting down or standing up, and contemplating.
That you are Citizen X, wearing outfit Y, who went to school Z and befriended A and ate R and is secretly harboring a desire for F.
And since it is a cycle, and a system, its cyclic and systemic nature will eventually one day lead us back to the source.
The giant big Awareness machine. The biggest ego in the universe. And that’s our real maker.
It could just be a big giant black hole. And we all go to sleep. Talking of sleep…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Everything changes. Nothing is truly lost.
People come and go. It’s been five years since the first time I was on diet control. A lot of people have left.
I’m going on a diet.
Right, here’s some really important information I wanted to share, if you’re into diet this ‘new’ year.
Any low carb diet is extremely popular due to the fact that if it is followed properly then the person can lose a lot of weight quickly quite early in the diet, which of course gives great encouragement. However once the initial quick weight loss is over less weight will then be lost. One of the biggest down sides to the diet is the fact that many see the low carb diet as just sabotaging your own body by getting it to eat away at the fat stores. The reason behind this is that while your body eats away at the fat, it also eats away at precious muscle.
Another big fault with the diet is that it doesn’t allow for much fruit and veg to be included in the diet. Therefore many essential vitamins and minerals are lost and these of course are essential if the body is to remain fit and healthy. The kidneys are also thought to be put at risk if the diet is stuck with over along period of time, this is due to the large intake of protein in the low carb diet. They have also been linked to yo-yo dieting, which means that you will lose weight rapidly then regain it only to go back and the diet and continue in the cycle which is not good for your health.
If you are thinking of going on a low carb diet then it is essential that you look into it thoroughly beforehand and also the pros and cons associated with it, along with other alternatives.
You should also choose a diet buddy who you will see on a regular basis. A really great way to stay on track is to meet at the gym every morning and then get something to eat afterward. You can compare notes and talk about what’s going on and how you are progressing. If breakfast doesn’t work then lunch is another good alternative.
You and your diet buddy should set goals and rewards for each other. When you hit a weight goal, you can celebrate by shopping for a new outfit that shows off your weight loss or you can go out together for a healthy dinner at a nice restaurant. You and your buddy are working together to help each other reach your goals so if you lose weight faster than your friend, be supportive and help them realize that everyone has a different body type and some people take longer to lose weight. On the flip side, be prepared for your friend to lose weight quicker than you and if that happens, be sure to cheer them on and reassure yourself that your consistency will pay off for you in the near future.
If some is suffering from diabetes, it means that his body cannot produce insulin in normal fashion. As a result, it increases the glucose level in the blood. Switching to healthy diabetic diet plan can be of help at this time. Planning for an appropriate diet is a crucial part of your treatment journey, because it can manage the level of glucose in your blood.
Sensible selections of food along with healthy and disciplined lifestyle are the two key success points of diabetic treatment. A healthy diabetic diet plan must include six essential factors such as restricting consumption for sweet products, frequent eating, attentive towards carbohydrate consumption, consume plenty amount of whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables, eating low-fat products, restriction in alcohol consumption.
Some people believe that switching to a vegetarian diet may cure their diabetes problem, but it is not totally correct. Well, it can be managed well with vegetarian diet compared to a non-vegetarian one. In that sense, vegetarian diet can be a wise inclusion to diabetic diet plan.
There is no hard-and-fast rule for preparing a vegetarian diet plan. Vegan diet is the austere form of vegetarian diet. Vegans typically do not feed themselves on any sort of animal products such as dairy and egg. However, other vegetarians can eat these products.
An austere vegan diet comprises of almost no-cholesterol content in it. It also contains low saturated fat. It is mostly prepared with a generous selection of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. These food products are essentially high in fiber. Typically, a vegetarian diet offers lesser calories than non-vegetarian one. So it is beneficial for diabetic patients.
Vegetarian diet is an effective choice in diabetic diet plan because of its weight loss ability which significantly benefits people with type-II diabetes. Some scientific studies confirmed that vegetarian diet can make the body more receptive to insulin.
Healthy weight loss diet plans also include at least 3 and up to 7 servings of protein and dairy. These include lean meats, chicken, and fish. Cold water fish is the best because it is full of Omega-3 oils which are healthy fats for your body.
Even fats and sweets should be accounted for. You might have a diet that allows you 3-5 servings of fat and 75 calories of sweets. Why? Because your body needs a small amount of fats. You won’t stay on your diet for life if you know you can never eat sweets again.
A good plan will also offer sample menus. These give you an idea of what is meant by the requirements of the plan. They make it clear how to put together a meal out of the many choices available.
You’ll do better with healthy weight loss diet plans if you learn about correct portions. Check to make certain whatever plan you choose is clear on portion sizes. For example, a medium apple might be the size of a tennis ball. A 3-ounce piece of meat might be the size of a deck of cards.
What’s more, some plans even give instructions on how to figure servings on food you buy pre-packaged. Do you go by what the package says is a serving? Or do you go by a certain number of calories or carbohydrate grams? Healthy diet plans will tell you.
There’s no quick fix for losing weight. You can’t simply sit on the sofa and drop the weight you’ve been carrying. It takes effort to change behaviors you’ve spent a lifetime cultivating. However, healthy weight loss diet plans give you the tools and they make being in shape a life-long habit.
One of the first things you need to do in order to determine the cause of your weight loss plateau is to make a log of everything you eat. In all likelihood you are eating things you should not be eating or in excessive quantities. It is rare that one can follow a diet program precisely and not lose weight. There may be occasions when you might lose less weight than at other times for any number of reasons including illness, but if it continues beyond a week or two, you need to keep of log of your food intake in order to evaluate the cause.
While you are logging your food consumption, you want to pay close attention to your snacks. One of the mistakes people tend to make is choosing low calorie snacks that have added sugar or thinking they can eat more because the food has little or no calories in it. The time you eat meals and snacks may also have an effect on the speed at which you lose weight. If you have a tendency to eat dinner after 6:00 p.m., you may find it difficult to lose weight because there is not enough time to digest the food before bed. Of course, if you go to bed much later, this will not be as big of a problem.
A favourite way for models to look good is to “Cleanse” or “Fast”. This is not a complete starvation diet, as it will include the intake of soups and fruit juices over a 3 to7 day period. It is more of a detox routine and is gernerally only carried out once or twice a year.
The benefits of this detox is to obviously rid the body of harmful toxins, such as preservatives and food additives together with inhaled smoke and fumes. It also gives the colon a chance to rid the digestive system of any fecal build up. The results can be dramatic as the liver and kidneys are able to repair and replace damaged cells instead of continuing to rid the body of toxins.
A typical “Cleanse” diet might consist of a combination of fresh carrots, celery, beet, spinach, apple, coconut, broth and juices. Citrus and tomato juices are too acidic to drink while fasting so these should be avoided. It’s important to drink plenty of water during the detox and avoid consuming any unnecessary medications or supplements.
The advantages of a detox are weight loss, reduced body odour, shinier finger nails, stronger hair, reduced cellulite, a glowing complexion and more beautiful eyes.
Here are the top 5 tips that fashion models highly recommend for staying in trim.
1. Decrease your alcohol consumption. Alcohol suppresses the body’s ability to burn fat.
2. Eat more Black Pepper, Ginger, Chile Peppers. Spicy food helps speed up the body’s metabolism.
3. Increase your muscle mass. Muscle burns fat, so adding 5lbs of muscle will help you burn another 250 calories a day.
3. Increase your vitamin B and Calcium intake. The B-Vitamins give you more energy and increase your metabolism.
4. Drink More Water. A healthy, well-hydrated body is important to flush out toxins and aid in metabolising fats
5. Increase your intake of Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Omega 3 fatty acids can help to balance blood sugar levels and control appetite.
Whew! That’s all ….for now.
