A great band
Actually I am a zealous person when it comes to rock music. Although there are many great bands and singers who have done great things in the past, the most impressive one for me is nirvana. They represent the working class and the singer kurt cobain went through a lot of depression and pain and eventually kill himself. When it comes to nirvana we have to invoke the soul of band kurt cobain who he had an un happy childhood. And place he grow up is Seattle was always violence, but when he touched the guitar , it brought peace and relieved him stress and pain. Lately he formed the band and had some performance . gradually he got more and more success and won some fame that he could never image before. I know the fame and money is supposed to bring great joy to a person in a short time . but if you are not suitable to bear these invisiable things . it will devour your soul. Especially like Cobain suffered much pain, he was very clear about what he needed. For some people have a fragile spirit. Love is key medicine . but fame dosen’t consist of love and only has profits.
Naturally , when he met his lover and fell in love with her, they had a baby. That was possibly the happiest memory of his whole life. But good things never last forever. The taste of the mainstream had changed and he was now gaining popularity in the alternative movement. As a consequence, they were not satisfied with the albums produced under the direction of their record company, who still wanted the “mainstream” sound. In answer to this, they released an album where the cover was a picture of a baby using a rope to catch money in the pool. This demonstrated Nirvana’s feelings about the record company ‘s greed and not the band’s artistic goals. The truth is the minority force could never against the major group
That ‘s reason lead him to disorder eventually. Even that he become…...

...Kurt Vonnegut Kurt Vonnegut, the author of many amazing books, essays, and plays is also one of the most renounced authors of the 21st century. His ability to humor, entertain, and infrom the reader in issues of war, society, and religion has brought him much praise and even reproach. He has encountered many struggles to convey his life's work. Throughout many of Vonnegut's works, we are shown his ability to turn major events in his life into satirical dark humor. Kurt Vonnegut Jr. was born November 11, 1922 in Indianapolis Indiana. He spent most of his life and adolesnce in Indianapolis and is very thankfull."What people like about me is Indianoplis" (The Kurt Vonnegut Memorial).

Kurt Vonnegut

...Kurt Vonnegut Vonnegut’s readers will often find themselves misled or confused. His style of writing is organized randomness from his cynical point of view. In A Man Without A Country, Vonnegut shows the ugly truth about our government and his views on how it doesn’t work. Vonnegut’s perspective of family is also exceptionally candid. He is able to tie family life and values into politics. As a reader it is very hard to make out Vonnegut’s meaning because of his enormous amount of satire. Vonnegut’s strong beliefs in government and politics leave you wondering his true feelings about our government. In Vonnegut’s words, “George Bush has gathered around him upper-crust C-students who know no history or geography, plus not-so-closeted white supremacists, aka Christians, and plus, most frighteningly, psychopathic personalities, or PPs, the medical term for smart, personable people who have no consciences.” When Vonnegut says this he’s trying to show just how pathetic our government truly is. He sees the government as being such a big joke that it would make a fascinating reality television show. Anyone who watches reality Television shows can see just how impractical they are and how dumb people can become. He also explains within his words that average people who were C-students are running the government. It’s obvious that he feels as if the people given power and supremacy should not be elected to make the decisions for what is right and what is wrong within our country...

...Rena Cobett World Religion Dr. Jones 18 September 2009 “Nirvana”, and Its Relationship to Buddhism Nirvana: State of being where you are no longer concerned with pain, fear, anxiety, or other negative emotions or feelings. To be free from external reality. When an individual is at peace with the world, has compassion for all and gives up obsessions (materialistic items, ideas) and fixations. Buddhism, like most of the great religions of the world, is divided into a number of different traditions. The fundamental belief of Buddhism is often referred to as reincarnation. In fact, most individuals go through many cycles of birth, living, death and rebirth. After many such cycles, if a person releases their attachment to desire and the self, they can attain Nirvana. Buddhism believes that there are five processes which no human being has control and which none can ever change. These five processes are namely the process of growing old, of not falling sick, of dying, decay of things that are perishable and of the passing away of that which is liable to pass. The teaching included the believe that the only way to end the cycle of suffering is to end all craving and lead a life free of attachment that has no karmic consequences. Buddha set forth the Four Noble Truths which would lay the foundation of his later teachings while traveling throughout the land. 1) Life inevitably involves suffering, is imperfect and unsatisfactory.(Dukkha) 2) Suffering originates in our......

Kurt Vonnegut

...The author's name appears in print as "Kurt Vonnegut, Jr." throughout the first half of his published writing career; beginning with the 1976 publication of Slapstick, he dropped the "Jr." and was simply billed as Kurt Vonnegut. His older brother, Bernard Vonnegut, was an atmospheric scientist at the University at Albany, SUNY, who discovered that silver iodide could be used for cloud seeding, the process of artificially stimulating precipitation. After returning from World War II, Kurt Vonnegut married his childhood sweetheart, Jane Marie Cox, writing about their courtship in several of his short stories. In the 1960s they lived in Barnstable, Massachusetts, where for a while Vonnegut worked at a Saab dealership. The couple separated in 1970. He did not divorce Cox until 1979, but from 1970 Vonnegut lived with the woman who would later become his second wife, photographer Jill Krementz.[2] Krementz and Vonnegut were married after the divorce from Cox was finalized. He raised seven children: three from his first marriage; his sister Alice's three children, adopted by Vonnegut after her death from cancer; and a seventh, Lily, adopted with Krementz. His only biological son, Mark Vonnegut, a pediatrician, wrote the book The Eden Express: A Memoir of Insanity (Seven Stories Press, 2010),[22] about his experiences in the late 1960s and his major psychotic breakdown and recovery. Mark was named after Mark Twain, whom Vonnegut considered an American saint.[23] His daughter Edith......

...cool Contrast between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia Culture is one of the treasured traits the some countries carry on throughout centuries, even during our time today. However, although some countries cherish their culture and value it, humans get so caught up with their everyday life routine that they tend to forget their culture and diminish their traditions. Culture is what makes us different that everyone else. Each country has its own culture and celebrations. For example, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia are two Middle Eastern countries that share the same language. Although these countries have some similarities, there is a wide variety of differences between them when it comes to politics, tradition and religion. Both countries share a common religion: Islam. Moreso, there are plenty of other religions in Lebanon. Islam is portrayed in more strict and conservative way in Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, religion plays a huge role in culture, traditions, and even politics. Religion is used as a way of living more than just a belief. For example, religion is tied in with women’s right and politics. No matter what religion they practice, women have to be covered from head to toes even if they were tourists visiting the country. It is the law. According to the editor Tore Kjeilen, “Officially Muslims constitute 100% of the population, but considering the considerable expatriate community, 90% is a better estimate. Even among citizens, there are......

Kurt Cobain Conspiracy Theories

...Alexandria Chavez English 68 Professor Tolliver Essay #3 2 December 2014 A Mystery Unsolved Kurt Cobain: Suicide or Murder? Early morning April 8, 1994, 27 year-old Kurt Cobain, lead singer of rock band Nirvana, is found dead inside the greenhouse of his Seattle mansion. After checking himself out of a rehab facility located near Los Angeles, Cobain traveled back to his home in Lake Washington, Seattle – only a few days later did his wife, Courtney Love, file a missing persons report for her husband. Allegedly stuck in Los Angeles for business, Love could not search for Cobain on her own time; she hired a private investigator named Tom Grant to go out on the hunt for the Rock and Roll sensation. Grant and best friend of Cobain, Dylan Carlson, began an investigation that led nowhere; they searched the Lake Washington house several times, visited numerous hotels along the Aurora strip, and even checked out a few of Cobain’s drug dealers. When the morning of April 8 flew around, it took an electrician hired by Love to discover the deceased body of Kurt Cobain. Positioned on his back, Cobain was recognized with a shotgun cemented between his fingertips and a purported suicide note settled on a planter just feet away. Immediately, police officers ruled his death as suicide, but Nirvana fans, close friends and family, and Grant suggested that was not the case – they believed Kurt Cobain was indeed murdered. Although it may sound preposterous, there is evidence directly......

Kurt Cobain

...Kurt Cobain The number one cause of death in teens is suicide? Looking back to one of the most commonly known and most devistating suicides, of Kurt Cobain lead singer of the former band Nirvana. In his time of music he had the world in his hands. He used personal turmoil as fuel for great music. Suprisingly, he seemed unusually tortured by success. The author of Come As You Are: The Story of Nirvana said, "He was a very bright, sweet, generous, and caring person, perhaps a little too sweet and sensitive for the business he was in." One of Cobain's biggest worries was that his band had sold out. In one line of a not-so-popular song he says, "I'd rather be dead than be cool." It seemed like the once unknown punkish Seattle band moved mainstream overnight. Nirvana caught on fast and changed rock and roll music forever. Nirvana, along with a few other Seattle bands, molded the music of the 90's, alternative. Where did it all start for Kurt? Kurt Donald Cobain was born February 20, 1967. He was a happy child living with his mother and father in Aberdeen, Washington. But the happiness, soon interrupted in 1975 when Kurt's parents got divorced. Kurt was ashamed.

Accommodation at Don’t use ibid and op cit. Writer could have moved ‘Graham’ to position of ibid. Thomas should be given full citation to avoid reader having to refer back. least acknowledges that a conflict exists, though, whereas avoiding a conflict implies a refusal to deal it. It is not a strategy to be used readily because if the dispute has any substance then suppressing it will simply make things worse (Allred, 1987). Indeed there are probably only two instances where it is of use. First, if the conflict is trivial or secondly in order to let people cool down and allow the manager to assess the situation calmly (McGurn, 1990). Compromise has been described as a lose-lose strategy and yet still holds wide currency as an effective conflict resolution strategy (Graham, 1998). It is most likely where the conflicting parties carry equal weight and is a trade-off, with each making concessions but neither achieving its original aims. It is for this reason that the lose-lose tag applies - the conflict has not been resolved because differences are not fully explored and each side generally seeks to concede as little as possible (ibid.). Nevertheless, as a fall-back position or as a means of creating a temporary settlement to allow time for a more collaborative solution to be found, compromise can...

Kurt Cobain

...Greg Beuning Board of Trustees Scholarship Essay 1/31/2010 Smells like Kurt Cobain “Come as you are, as you were, as I want you to be.” These lyrics, from the Nirvana song Come as You Are, are some of Kurt Cobain’s most famous and they provide a quick glimpse into the mind of a very complex man. It has been written that “NO ONE more exactly personified America's 'slacker' generation than Kurt Cobain, Nirvana's leader and songwriter.” Kurt Cobain is one of the people who have had such an impact on the music of his era that it could be said that he changed music. Cobain wasn’t known for singing or for shredding up and down the fret board with his guitar. He was great because of his ability to make his listeners connect with his songs. Kurt Cobain, a music icon, is one of my favorite artists of all time. His unique personality and the mystery surrounding his death would make for an afternoon of interesting conversation. First I would like to write a song with Kurt Cobain. One of the obvious reasons for meeting him is that I would love to hear him sing and play. As an aspiring artist, I would also like to ask Cobain questions. I would like to talk with him about how he was able to convey his emotions so well through his songs. Cobain liked to include themes from society into his songs, and he used his music to expose problems that he saw and criticize the people responsible.
