The Invention of the Electric Guitar

bigpreview_Electric Guitar, The StringsFor as far back as we are able to look into the prehistory of the human race, music has been a crucial part of the life of humans.  Some scholars even speculate that human music may have come before language.  From the beginning, people living in little groups sang and danced to self-made music.  Drums and pipes were readily developed, and even today they can be found in use, still often hand-made, in every culture anywhere in the world where simple communities gather for group celebrations….Read More

Six Musicians Who Belong in Horror

108Some people look scary because that’s the way nature made them, while others try hard to make themselves look scary. Sometimes they even try to make it worse by acting the creepiest way possible. But don’t judge a book by its cover; most of the time, many of the people who look spooky or act crazy are actually shy and quiet people. Maybe their creepy looks and scary attitudes are just shields protecting their sensitivities. But no matter what……Read More

Ten Organisms Named After Celebrities For Silly Reasons

Norasaphus-monroeae

Biologists will often honor a person who first discovered a species by naming it after them. It’s an age-old tradition, one that pays proper tribute to the contributions made to science by their incredible discovery.

However, the rules have loosened over the years. It seems like many scientists today believe that there is no problem with honoring people who have absolutely nothing to do with creature discovery: politicians, historical figures, athletes, and celebrities are the main source of inspiration. Several reasons could be given as to why scientists would do this, and most of them are just plain goofy. Such as …Read More

Και κατι στα ελληνικα

2006-11-11-a-war-in-the-sky

Μια από τις πιο εκπληκτικές αλλά και τεκμηριωμένες παρατηρήσεις εναέριων φαινομένων μας πηγαίνει πίσω στον Απρίλιο του 1561 στη Νυρεμβέργη της Γερμανίας. Αυτό που περιέγραψαν οι αυτόπτες μάρτυρες εκείνη τη μέρα θα μπορούσε μόνο να χαρακτηριστεί σαν  ένας πόλεμος που έλαβε χώρα στους αιθέρες….Read More

Leon

Recently we brought you a list of Fifteen Memorable ’90s Songs, and today we continue in similar fashion with a list of great movies. We won’t keep you in agony with a long intro since we said all we had to say in our first 90s article and the only thing we would like to add is that movies back in the ’90s were simply awesome.

The decade of the ’90s involved many significant films….Read More

«Write For US»

Hello everybody, and «ΚΑΛΟ ΜΗΝΑ» to all the Greeks reading this. I don’t plan to write too much this time.  I just want to share some awesome logos and pictures with you.

It’s no secret – and as a freelance writer I experience it – that most peeps of my «breed» are like thirsty vampires searching for blood when we visit websites fanatically seeking a … specific section… 

Interview with the Vampire The Vampire Chronicles  04
I want to write for youuuuuuuuuuuu

The picture of Louis de Pointe du Lac probably gives you an idea of how this feels for freelancers. It’s a force you can’t resist, and once the domineering spirits of freelance writing have entered your body and soul, they command you and tell you what you must do. We can’t even enjoy reading anymore… WE WANT TO WRITE AND CONTRIBUTE.

Of course I am referring to the magical – almost supernatural – «Write for Us« section. Can anything be a finer sight for freelancers? Well, actually something can – the «Write for Us and Get Paid section.

[In Gollum’s voice]

Money, influence, hundreds of compliments, and endless surges of vanity whispering in your ear that  millions of people will read what you wrote when you were bored last night watching the 8th episode (in eight hours) of  Game of Thrones and thought to do something constructive to save the day.”

Oh My God! I watched the first three seasons of Games of Thrones in less than 48 hours!
 

I promised however to keep it short and not to say much, so with no further delay (and sympathetic jokes), here are some of the best «Write for Us» logos I’ve found around the webthe joy and pleasure of every freelance writer in pictures.

Until the next time, Theocracy’s finest wish that you have a very good day.

It looks like we got a poll here:

The 10 Greatest MMA Fighters In History

fedor-emelianenko-wallpaper

Mixed martial arts is probably the fastest growing sport in the world, and it keeps gaining fans every day. Despite only being a sport for around 25 years, there have been many great champions who have become mainstream attractions. It’s very possible that such a list might look totally different 25 years from now, but it’s still interesting to take a look, and pay tribute, to the 10 greatest MMA fighters so far…… Read more

Fifteen Memorable ’90s Songs

the_prodigy_cartoon_wallpaper-normal

As someone who grew up and spent some of the best years of my life during the 90s, I happen to have really intense and emotional memories from that decade. I was ten when the decade began, and obviously 20 years old when it ended. In between lots of things happened on a personal level, and music was there every step of the way.

It’s quite likely that most of you can relate with the situation and no graphic details are needed to describe it all really. Music played a very important role in this transition from a boy to a teen and from a teen to a young man and the songs below are essentially a soundtrack to my youth…..read more
