It might be the time period when you are trying to tackle what you fear that takes you out of your comfort zone such as public speaking, feeling reluctant about an event which could interrupt your daily routine, for example, dieting, quitting smoking/drinking or currently fighting an uphill struggle in life.

Have the strength say no, take a step back and listen to your instincts. Take the opportunity to remain humble and feel secure within yourself. Your life will be harmonious once you’re grounded and balanced. The fear of failure and procrastination will stop you from succeeding. If not, the surroundings will control you. Training the mind spirit of your personality by keeping your mind free of clutter and keep your ego in check.

In another aspect, in a relationship reading, the card may be telling you that somebody is in need of playing it cool by revealing some self-restraint. Probably you may be having conflicts with this person who could become your partner, family member, colleague etc..

The Power card encourages you to remain on track and not to revert back into unhealthy patterns. You are stronger than you think. You have what it takes and do not quit.

Design & Art History – The Psychedelic Movement (CA 1960 – 1970)

Fractal Fractal Background Design Render D

In the late sixties something happened to an american generation that would mark them forever. It is a story of war, the struggle for racial equality and the explosion of counter culture, it was a time when a generation rebelled, and lost its innocence in the battle against injustice. Vietnam was the first ever televised war, and the images were inescapable.

A decade that ended with disillusionment and anger started on a moral high note.

There is so much to write about in this era, it is very difficult to select only 1 thing to concentrate on. Despite the fact that there is an absurd quantity of art and design that stems from this period of time. When we talk about the”sixties” all we seem to recognise is the music, psychedelic rock and artists such as Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix particularly.

Album art and festival posters however is a fantastic place to start. 1 thing which appears to be re-occurring with most of the visual artists at the time is a relation with”Underground Comix”. These depicted articles deemed unfit and forbidden to the stricter mainstream media.

Rick Griffin:
When we look up band posters it’s not easy to avoid locating a Grateful Dead poster somewhere, anywhere. He was an American performer and one of the major designers of psychedelic posters in the 1960s. His work within the surfing subculture included both movie posters and his comic strip, Murphy.

Victor Moscoso:
After studying art at the Cooper Union in New York and attending Yale University, he moved to San Francisco in 1959 to study at the San Francisco Art Institute. Here he later became a teacher. He was one of the first of the rock poster artists to use photographic collages in his art work.His artwork and poster work has continued up to the present and he’s a big inspiration to rock poster and album illustrators to this day.

Bonnie MacLean:
Another American artist creating a name for her self at the time was Bonnie MacLean. She was born in Philadelphia and graduated from the Penn State University in 1960. She then moved to New York where she worked in the Pratt Institute while attending drawing classes in the evenings. She later moved to San Francisco where she met and worked with a man named Bill Graham, who became famous as the promoter of rock concerts at the Fillmore Auditorium. There she worked along with another artist by the name of Wes Wilson.

Wes Wilson:
The aforementioned artist Wes Wilson was also one of the leading illustrators of psychedelic posters from the 1960’s. Working with Bill Graham and Bonnie MacLean, he had been a big part of promoting venues at the time with posters and descriptive work for bands and musicians. The font and lettering of the posters from this era were created by him. He popularised this”psychedelic” font around 1966 that made the letters look like they were going or melting. This decoration is still used on newer albums and art works for artists like Foo Fighters, Kyuss Lives and The Queens of the Stone Age. This in turn proves the psychedelic movement is still affecting artists, especially in the area of metal, desert rock and stoner rock. The design is very much still alive as its staple.

Modern poster styles:
Posters still influenced by the styles of art work can be tracked through homages and inspirations in rock and metal posters in the current all the way back to this age. A number of modern posters can be seen on the web pages of Malleus Rock Art Lab if you should be interested. I personally find a whole lot of inspiration through their vision.

Talent Agents?

Ballet, Dance, People, Girl, Ballerina

A talent agent can open up doors for actors and get them auditions and bookings that the huge majority of people never hear about.

Don’t believe me?

Just ask Ethan.

Ethan was a teen celebrity who had signed up for an on-camera acting workshop I was teaching. He had some theatrical experience but had not done any on-camera acting before. However he was very talented and enthusiastic, and after the workshop, I invited him to meet with me in the talent agency I worked at to discuss representation.

We ended up signing Ethan, and within only a few months, we got him booked on a significant supporting role in Spike TV’s The Kill Point, starring Donnie Wahlberg and John Leguizamo.

This teen celebrity with almost no experience in front of a camera got booked on a major cable network TV show because he found the right agent.

Can you imagine the auditions and bookings you would have access to if you signed with the right agency?

How different would your career (and your life) be?

It all begins with finding a excellent agent to represent you.

Where do you find a talent agent?

And how do you know they’re legit?

And not going to rip you off?

Among the best pieces of advice I will give to some actor starting out is to work with what is known as a union-franchised service (or agent).

There are numerous unions that you might deal with as an actor-SAG (Screen Actor’s Guild) and AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) are the most common when it comes to working on camera. SAG and AFTRA used to be their own separate unions, but in 2012 the two merged to become SAG-AFTRA, one joint union to represent all celebrities for on-camera work.

There are pros and cons for actors who are a part of SAG-AFTRA.

The marriage guarantees that they have paid a certain minimum wage for any on-camera work they get booked on. They also guarantee certain working conditions, and offer actors health insurance, retirement, and other benefits.

If you reside in one of the many, many smaller markets across the country that doesn’t have plenty of consistent work for union actors, this could be a huge drawback.

But the question of whether or not you should join the union is a debate for another day.

The main thing for ANY actor to understand is how unions work with talent agencies.

Benefits of working with a union-franchised agency

SAG-AFTRA issues businesses to qualified talent agencies that meet specific requirements.

These are known as union-franchised agencies.

These agencies must employ, pay a free, and be approved by SAG-AFTRA in order to be able to represent union actors.

It does NOT mean that you will need to join the union so as to utilize these agencies.

In actuality, for most actors residing outside of a significant market like LA or NYC, I usually suggest that you don’t join the union (but that is a longer conversation for another time).

What it does mean is that these agencies are highly regulated by SAG-AFTRA, and have agreed to certain conditions for all their celebrities, union members or not.

These conditions include:

The agency must make its income almost exclusively through commissions they get when they get work for the celebrities they represent
they cannot charge a fee for getting actors auditions
the bureau Can’t be connected with an acting school or teach any courses or workshops within an agency
there cannot be an in-house photographer or specific third party photographer that actors are required to use
they can only charge actors 10% commission for SAG-AFTRA tasks (they could charge higher commission for non-union jobs, generally 15-20percent )
Union-franchised agencies only get paid when they get work for their actors. They are usually a safe haven from the many scams out there designed to rip off unsuspecting actors.

Does this mean that non-franchised talent agencies can not be trusted? Or that you shouldn’t sign with them?

Of course not.

They work hard to find work for the celebrities they represent, and they simply have the best of intentions.

But finding out which of these non-franchised agencies are reputable and which ones are a scam is something which comes with a great deal of experience working in that business.

And there are many that seem to be legit UNTIL you begin to work together and end up wasting your time and your money.

So that is the reason why I always recommend that actors try to work with a union-franchised service when first starting out.

How to Discover a union-franchised talent agency

Locating a franchised agency near you is easy-go to SAG-AFTRA’s franchised agent page on their website at https://www.sagaftra.org/professionalrepresentatives and look for those services in the market closest to where you live.

Do not be afraid to expand your search past just your local area-you could even check within a few hour radius of where you live.

It may be harder to get to auditions in person, but there may be opportunities for you to self-tape your auditions and submit them to the agency.

It’s far better to find the franchised agency that will be the best fit for you, and then figure out the logistics of how and when you’re audition.

There may be a number of non-franchised agencies that are closer to where you live.

Many will be totally above board, and give you access to some of the very same auditions and bookings that you’d get if you were signed to a franchised agency.

Regular vacuuming should be done often and this can help lengthen the time in between cleanings. It’s important to keep a close watch on your rugs’ overall quality. Keep in mindthat carpeting is designed to hide soil. If your carpets are looking dark or dirty, call a carpet cleaning company that you trust. Your very best bet is to not let your carpets get to this point. When cleaned and maintained properly, carpet life is drastically extended and you can keep it looking its best for years to come.

Removal of stains, spills and stains ought to be a part of your carpet cleaning. Some of this advice can also be implemented in commercial carpet cleaning, cloth panels cleaning and commercial upholstery cleaning applications.

Carpets and rugs can be a challenge to clean and remove stains. Professional carpet cleaning solutions can be costly and difficult to work into your schedule. Renting a carpet cleaning machine is somewhat more economical, but you also need to purchase the shampoo to put in them. You can make your own carpet cleaner, however, one that can be used in most rented machines, in your own carpet cleaning machine or with only a bucket and a sponge. You can clean the entire carpet, higher traffic areas or just remove stains or spots.

· Remove the furniture from the carpeted area. If the furniture is too heavy, place a plastic film beneath and around the legs of the furniture.
This can have the biggest effect on the whole procedure!
· Follow the instructions on the device carefully. Do not include other chemicals or under-dilute in an effort to create your cleaner stronger.
· Only use a cleaning solution that works with your extractor.
· Begin at the farthest point from the door and return toward it so you can step out when done. Do not clean yourself into a corner!
· Be patient and do not over-wet the carpeting. Extract as much of the water as you can. Don’t rush this step.
· Wait till the carpet dries before replacing the furniture or walking on carpet. This step can take 6-12 hours.
· Ventilate the area. Open windows if outdoor weather conditions permit, or put the air conditioning on a moderate setting (72 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit). Never shut up a room with a wet carpet.

In case you’ve got light-color carpets and/or a house filled with kids or pets, you might want to purchase your own professional-style model designed for home use. Home cleaners can save you money over the long haul in comparison to hiring a pro several times annually. Keep in mind, however, that the device you buy may not have the cleaning power that professional versions do.

Most home carpet cleaning systems are water-extraction components which are also called steam cleaners. They work by injecting a solution into the carpet pile, then pulling the dirty solution back into the machine. To avoid the hassle of dragging a hose around the house, choose a model that doesn’t need a clean-water hookup. Also, select the most effective machine you can afford to lessen the burden of water extraction. When using a steam cleaner, do not get the carpets too wet. Overwetting can damage the carpet backing and underlayment, causing shrinkage, discoloration, and odor.

Each method, if managed by a qualified pro, will do wonders for dirty carpets. Not only do professionals have a lot more powerful equipment than you’re likely to purchase or rent, they have far more experience removing stains. Prices may vary widely for essentially the same service, so shop carefully.
