aboutUs By Hotspotorlando


Spring arrives in full power! Blooming trees and flowers, blue skies and lots of rain, inspiration at its highest levels, everything in a roll of overwhelming feelings, and best of all bringing us a preparation for the Summer. The Prelude to it all! We should have Yard Sales, Spring cleanings, and hope for enough time to maybe, fix the garden, or even plan a trip, or a small vacation. But what I really want is to just lay my body in the sun and let the ocean water hit me, caress my face, and thank the creator , one more time, for making me a part of such a beautiful world, for the marvelous nature, and for being alive. No matter what, I am happy for being here, and to be part of this world. Even the not so fair people we find along the way. Life is a gift, and if any of us take a minute to stop, we will realize how grand it is, and then maybe you will start paying more attention to it. Love yourself, the environment, nature, they are all God’s creations for us. Never forget this. It is called present for a reason, receive it ,embrace it. It is God’s gift to all of us. Have a great Spring!

Slow Art Day

In a mixture of Art photography, beautiful paintings and sculptures, a large array of artists await for our senses to awaken and observe. According to Carolie Claeysen-Gleyzon, Jai Gallery’s Director, in a museum or Gallery the average time frame to observe each work is about 17 seconds. And that is just not enough. Slow Art Day was designed to allow people the opportunity to have 10 minutes with each one of the Artists work picked by the Gallery, to observe, feel and understand what each one is all about. The most important aspect of admiring art is the fact that regardless of the artist’s inspiration, art is what you feel, and the feeling its beauty brings to you, and with the opportunity of observing it for 10 minutes, you will eventually touch into the artist’s intended message. Slow Art Day is for everyone, not only for the Art connoisseur or experts. Every single person with sensibility to find beauty will enjoy it and understand that Art interpretation is an ability that everybody is entitled to have. Observe, feel and find within yourself to relate to it, and find your own point of identification with the object of your attention. Jai Gallery is at 101 South Garland Ave., Suite 105, Orlando Florida 32801. Find them on Facebook at Phone #(407) 921-0693 Email Website

Edmundo Cavalcanti Arte Brasileira LUIZ CAVALLI

Intensa visão - Arte e dinamismo

Tive a honra e o prazer de conhecer Luiz Cavalli e suas obras,em uma das exposições que visitei, e gostaria que vocês conhecessem a arte desse talentoso artista.

Automóveis, bicicletas, lambretas, carrinhos com vendedores de cocada e cadeiras são imagens recorrentes na pintura de Luiz Cavalli. Sua pincelada, livre e em movimentos circulares, é uma solução plástica feliz para transmitir a ideia de um movimento constante.

A reflexão poética que cada tela traz é a de uma expressão contínua de amor pela vida e pelo gesto sem freios. Não existem limitações de cor ou de forma a tolher o progressivo desenvolver da pintura. Acima de tudo, está a decisão visual de mergulhar em si mesmo para retirar dali a força motriz de sua obra. O maior mérito de Luiz Cavalli é o poder que ele atinge nas composições. Existe muito mais um caminhar gregário do que uma solidão existencial. As próprias cores utilizadas indiciam justamente o calor da conversa possível com o outro. Assim, Luiz Cavalli traz essa intensidade à tona quanto mais se permite ser fiel a si mesmo. Nasceu em 1956 em Soledade - Rio Grande Sul –Brazil e vive em São Paulo desde 1965

Cores intensas e gestos largos contribuem para introduzir no trabalho uma dose de humor, no sentido de uma aparente fé na própria Como foi a escolha do curso vida e nas suas potencialidades. de faculdade?

Quais são suas principais influências?

Bem, é muito variada e cheia de coisas, fui muito influenciado pelos professores do IADÊ e através de amigos conheci muita gente como Geraldo de Barros que me ajudou muito, Rui Gama professor da FAU (Faculdade de arquitetura e urbanismo), Loy Portinari irmão de Candido de quem tive aula particular de desenho de observação. Tive também um grande apoio de Inácio de Loyola e Claro os professores da FAAP.


para trabalhar no Departamento de RTVC, e com isso parei de desenhar até 2003, quando recomeçou, veio com tudo. Neste período eu rabiscava em cadernos trabalhando, mas estava fo cado em cinema e produção e como falei, tive um stress no trabalho e comecei a levar para casa restos de Cenários em madeira e comecei a pintar da noite para o dia. Primeiro pintei muito xadrez para me ambientar com a tinta e depois comecei a soltar o pincel, comprei telas e gostei. Mostrei para alguns artistas que conhecia como o Aguilar e fui bem recebido, ele pediu para não parar mais de pintar...

LUIZ CAVALLI Intense vision Art and dynamism By Edmundo Cavalcanti I had the honor and pleasure of knowing Luiz Cavalli and his work in one of the exhibitions that I visited, and I would like you to meet the art of this talented artist. Cars, bikes, scooters, carts with vendors cocada and chairs are recurring images in his paintings. His brushwork, free and in a circular motion, is a plastic solution, happy to convey the idea of a​​ constant motion. Intense colors and sweeping gestures contribute to introduce the work with a dose of humor, to an apparent faith in life and its potential. Even though his paintings bring in their concept an inherent dynamism and everything is fleeting, he keeps his commitment with quality. A poetic reflection that brings each screen is a continuous expression of love for life and the gesture without brakes. There are no limitations on color or shape to thwart the progressive development of the painting. Above all, the decision is visually immerse yourself in there to remove the driving force of his work. The greatest merit of Luiz Cavalli is the power that he reaches with his compositions. There is more of a gregarious walk than an existential loneliness. The precision indicated in the colors used make the dialogue possible with each other. The more Luiz Cavalli brings that intensity to light the more it allows him to be true to him-

Solo Exhibition at Art Festival Delight-Rio de Janeiro-2012 Opinion of the critics: Expressionism happy Expressionism, the word is linked to the concept of a movement from outside to inside which depicts a world view. Usually associated with German thought, the movement of the painting, and this name is usually marked by cries of pain and in a war-torn world. Gaucho painter from the city of São Paulo, Luiz Cavalli expressed Expressionism cheerful. Inside, the agony of Europe, which is marked by the destruction or scars, no. His view of life is poetry. Color is brought to canvas with ample freedom and refers to the human figure intensely bright vibrant colorful design shapes. Is there a way to see the human caring. Even when it is destroyed by the amount of color and sweeping gesture, a few strokes of humor and a vision of people like criticism and derision warning about the finite nature of life and the futility of vanity in a world where everything is increasingly ephemeral.

O Mundo lá Fora

Patricia Moura Quando aceitei o convite da Editora Laíz Rodrigues para assinar uma coluna na revista AboutUs, de imediato veio em mente o desejo de abordar temas, pessoas e ações que contribuem para mudar e melhorar o mundo, assim, esta primeira coluna é dedicada a você, caro terráqueo, que assim como eu, está preocupado com o mundo lá fora. Começo lembrando algo fundamental e que embora pareça óbvio, muita gente não se dá conta: o mundo está em nossas mãos! A força e o poder de nossas atitudes são infinitamente mais potentes do que podemos supor e cada escolha, seja a de um político corrupto, a forma de educarmos nossos filhos, como cuidamos do nosso lixo ou como atuamos nas relações de consumo, por mais banal que possa parecer, direta ou indiretamente, sempre irá interferir em

É preciso parar e olhar em volta, refletir e rever nossa parcela de responsabilidade por cada escolha, reavaliar nossa relação socioambiental com a Terra.

no cenário global, não estou me referindo ao que de bom ou ruim acontece no outro lado do globo terrestre. Refiro-me ao cenário que nossos olhos alcançam.

Mude a si mesmo e mude o mundo com atitudes a b s o l u t a m e n te simples, sem necessidade de ser megalomaníaco, mas é preciso começar a pensar coletivamente. Atitudes que vão desde o respeito e gentileza com que tratamos o próximo à educação no trânsito, a forma como trabalhamos Viver em um país, cidade ou bairro os resíduos dos nossos lares, enfim, rico, não significa segurança, afinal, como cuidamos uns dos outros e do ninguém vive uma vida inteira numa redoma de vidro (blindado).

Finalizo citando o poeta e escritor pernambucano Valter da Rosa Borges, o qual, no meu entender, traduz verdadeiramente o espírito greenpeace:

When I accepted the Editor’s invitation to sign a column at AboutUs immediately came to mind the desire to address issues, about people and actions that contribute to change and improve the world, so this first column is dedicated to you, dear earthling, who like me, is concerned about the outside world. Start remembering something fundamental and although it seems obvious, many people do not realize:

our hands!

the world is in

The strength and power of our attitudes are infinitely more powerful than we can suppose. In each choice of a corrupt politician makes, in how to educate our children, how we take care of our garbage or how we operate our consumer relations, as casual as it may seem, directly or indirectly, every choice we make will always affect many other lives. For centuries we have made wrong choices, compromising the planet's resources.

You need to stop and look back, reflect and revise our share of responsibility for each choice, reevaluate your environmental relationship with Earth. We can not forget that we

in the overall picture and when I talk on the global level, I am not referring to what good or bad happens on the other side of the globe. I refer to the scenario that our eyes can see.

The body of work developed from the simplest actions is promoting real changes and these changes will transform you, your look, your attitude as the main character - and not as an spectator-conscious of the size of his strength and power. I conclude by quoting the poet and writer from Pernambuco Valter da Rosa Borges, which, in my opinion, truly reflects the spirit greenpeace: "A falling leaf litters the universe. The breath of a bird affects the Earth's climate. The swing from a cobweb affects the galaxy. A child born changes the fate of the world. Each gesture of love saves all mankind.

Na homenagem aos pilotos do avião de cauda vermelha, os aviadores Tuskegee foram reconhecidos com um monumento, que ira lembrar o heroísmo desses pilotos na entrada do Orlando Science Center que será inaugurado antes do próximo Dia dos Veteranos em Novembro 2013. Os três pilotos sobreviventes que residem na Florida Central estavam presentes no evento por seus serviços foram: o tenente-coronel Leo Gray, o tenente-coronel George Hardy e o tenente-coronel Hiram Mann.   The Tuskegee Airmen foram os primeiros aviadores militares afro-americanos nos Estados Unidos das forças armadas Americanas. Haviam 932 pilotos treinados em Tuskegee, do Alabama, dos quais 356 pilotos foram considerados um grupo de elite de pilotos de caça que foram enviadas a várias bases na Europa.

Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, os americanos africanos em muitos estados dos EUA ainda eram sujeitos às leis de Jim Crow. The Tuskegee Airmen foram submetidos a discriminação racial, tanto dentro como fora do exército.

mentamos o conhecimento intelectual das coisas que precisamos adquirir, mas nos falta o esforço necessário para trabalhar e realizar o objectivo.

No momento em que entendemos que existe, na verdade, um claro caminho dentro de nos, suplicando por atenção ... se acreditamos sinceramente que essa estrada esta aguardando um contato pessoal, para que as duas partes de nós se encontrem ... e se reconheçam, e se tornem uma, supostamente tudo se ajustaria em nosso caminho ... ou não????

Tudo isso reforça a premissa de que, assim que conseguimos entender as diversas etapas da vida, e aceitamos qual setrá o melhor caminho para nós, melhor será o resultado. Nesa altura estaremos preparados para um inabalável compromisso de aceitar todas as mudanças necessárias estabelecendo uma séria dedicação a novos caminhos, como única opção para obter os resultados que virão.

Bem, apesar de ser a melhor solução, não acontece com frequência. Nos diferentes níveis de nossa consciência, nossas vidas material e subjetiva ocorrem em diferentes espaços, cada um em sua camada, apesar de estarem no mesmo comprimento de onda. Cada parte de nós serve a um objetivo e o foco em relação a prioridades, se perde em uma miriade de opções descartáveis.

Estou ciente do que devo esperar do caminho e certa de que todos podemos chegar lá. Tudo o que precisamos é de abraçarmos o compromisso, como em tudo na vida, estarmos prontos para a nova caminhada, enfrentando caminhos desconhecidos (e desconfortáveis) que nos obrigarão a atitudes inteiramente novas. O conforto que estamos sempre desejando não é, na maioria das vezes, o melhor Ao escolhermos o nível dimensional em que amigo que temos.

About that Disney Vacation Why Stay at a Walt Disney World Owned/Operated Hotel?

Benefits Can Begin Before Guest Arrives … and Continue 24/7 For many guests, the benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World owned-and-operated resort begins before arrival at the Vacation Kingdom. And for all guests, the benefits and perks combine to make vacation magic 24 hours a day – whether at a Disney Value Resort designed for budget-minded vacationers … or at a Disney Deluxe Resort or Deluxe Villa offering lavish amenities. Disney resort hotels are designed to provide a lot more than a pillow beneath guests’ heads. They are created to immerse guests in a continuation of the worry-free vacation magic and adventures of the Disney parks. Thus the hotels have themes celebrating the long ago or the far away or even the world of imagination where toys can be bigger than people. Walt Disney World Resort offers a broad range of accommodations – more than 20 resorts that vary in price, allowing guests to pay for only the amenities that are important to them.

Disney Value resort guests are treated to larger-than-life theming, swimming pools and playgrounds, arcade rooms and standard amenities – and with more than 10,000 rooms at five resorts,

coaches for complimentary transportation to the Vacation Kingdom, where their bags “magically” appear in their guestroom. When it’s time to say good-bye, guests board motor coaches for complimentary transportation back to OIA. An extra convenience: Guests traveling on participating airlines can check their baggage for the return flight at their Disney resort, saving time and luggage-toting at the airport.

Universal Orlando Resort Reveals Grand Opening Date for Blockbuster Attraction, TRANSFORMERS: The Ride - 3D The highly anticipated blockbuster attraction TRANSFORMERS: The Ride - 3D will officially open on Thursday, June 20, 2013, Universal Orlando announced today. Universal also launched an all-new “Join the Resistance” Facebook experience to prepare fans for the battle they’ll experience on the mega-attraction. “Recruits” can create their very own NEST IDs, train for battle, access exclusive photos and video and win prizes - including a trip to the attraction’s grand opening celebration on June 20. Click here to join the resistance. TRANSFORMERS: The Ride - 3D is a mindblowing, action-packed ride experience that pushes the limits of technology to place guests in the middle of a larger-than-life battle between the Autobots and the Decepticons. The ride was created under license from Hasbro, Inc. and is based on its iconic TRANSFORMERS brand. The battle begins when guests enter the NEST facility - the headquarters for the government operation that partners with the Autobots to protect Earth from the Decepticons. While inside, they are recruited to help protect the AllSpark - a powerful energy source that would allow the Decepticons to destroy the planet. Guests board EVAC - an Autobot created exclusively for the attraction - to transport the AllSpark to safety. But beware...the Decepticons are in close pursuit...

They are one of the best-selling music artists in the history of audio recording; various sources estimate the group's sales at more than 200 or even 300 million albums worldwide. With 111.5 million RIAA-certified units, they are the second-best-selling band in the United States. Each of their nine studio albums placed on the Billboard Top 10, and six reached the number-one spot. Rolling Stone magazine described them as "the heaviest band of all time", "the biggest band of the '70s"and "unquestionably one of the most enduring bands in rock history". They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995; the museum's biography of the band states that they were "as influential in that decade [the 1970s] as the Beatles were in the prior one"

Tracks were structured around the twelve-bar blues on every studio album except for one, and the blues directly and indirectly influenced other songs both musically and lyrically.

sic critics.[138] Susan Fast argues that as Plant emerged as the band's main lyricist, the songs more obviously reflected his alignment with the West Coast counterculture of the 1960s. In the later part of the band's career Plant's lyrics became more autobiographical, and less optimistic, drawing on his own experiences and circumstances. According to musicologist Robert Walser, "Led Zeppelin's sound was marked by speed and power, unusual rhythmic patterns, contrasting terraced dynamics, singer Robert Plant's wailing vocals, and guitarist Jimmy Page's heavily distorted crunch".

drum.[149] Jones' basslines have been described as melodic and his keyboard playing added a classical touch to the band's sound.

These elements mean that they are often cited as one of the progenitors of hard rockand heavy metaland they have been described as the "definitive heavy metal band",although the band members have often eschewed the label. Part of this reputation depends on the band's use of distorted guitar riffs on songs like "Whole Lotta Love" and "The Wanton Song".

Towards the end of their recording career, they moved to a more mellow and progressive sound, dominated by Jones' keyboard motifs. They also increasingly made use of various layering and production techniques, including multitracking and overdubbed guitar parts.

Often riffs were not doubled by guitar, bass and drums exactly, but instead there were melodic or rhythmic variations; as in "Black Dog", where three different time signatures are used.Page's guitar playing incorporated elements of the blues scale with those of eastern music.Plant's use of highpitched shrieks has been compared to Janis Joplin's vocal technique.

Page stated that he wanted Led Zeppelin to produce music that had "light and shade". This began to be more clearly realised from Led Zeppelin III, which made greater use of acoustic instruments. This approach has been seen as exemplified in the fourth album, particularly on "Stairway to Heaven", which begins with acoustic guitar and recorder and ends with drums and heavy electric sounds.

Their emphasis on the sense of dynamics and ensemble arrangement has been seen as producing an individualistic style that transcends any single music genre. Ian Peddie argues that they were "... loud, powerful and often heavy, but their music was also humorous, self-reflective and extremely subtle" Whatever it is their music is the best we can ever remember, and it needs to be teached and reminded from time to time so it won’t get lost in the cracks of time.

Of course this is just how I see it. I briefly touched on what I think is important. We started our company from an email address and a FB account 4 years ago and even though were not where we want to be yet, we are on our way to getting there. It takes hard work and confidence. It will take nights without sleep and tireless loyalty to your music. The question you must ask yourself is would you be willing to drop everything in your life and follow your dreams? Well, would you? That's what every big artist out today did before you. I will leave you with this. If you truly believe you have what it takes then its your job to let everyone in the world know one person at a time. It's not about selling a million records, it's about having a million people hear your music.

STREET PRESENCE: I'm from the old school and even though I feel the artist today have an advantage because of internet, the one thing that will never be Music, South Coast Records. replaced in being seen. As an artist you have to socialize. You have to build a buzz and in order to do that, you have to be active on the circuit. Even if your not performing you should be there with your product in hand ready for whatever. 4. TIRELESS AMBITION: If you ever want to make it past showcases and open mics, you have to work harder then every artist out there. Your drive will dictate what level of the game that you get to. Your every thought should be in one way or another connected to your craft. There is no such thing as a part time artist. You either are or your not. NOTHING IS GIVEN TO YOU and the game is surely not waiting for you. Dedicate your everything into making the best music possible and be willing to sacrifice for your objectives. 5. SUPPORT TEAM: You can not reach your goals without a great support team. Your team will more then likely be your friends in the beginning but they should all have a role. A successful artist must have a team dedicated to making that artist a star. It's impossible for the artist to do everything, so sit down with your team and organize what needs to be done and assign your team task that they can be accountable for.

As always I appreciate you taking to time out to read this month's article. Be blessed and stay engaged in your craft. Real Talk, Real
