Being tanned seems to be synonymous of healthy and beautiful, but, is this new aesthetical fashion, lasting for some decades now, a trend that may cost us not only a good part of our health but even our lives?
Is it sensible to literally spend hours under the sun?
We have the pleasure to interview Dr. ROBYN LUCAS, from the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (Australia) on the effects of overexposure to ultraviolet radiation as well as the environmental effects on immune function to find out exactly what ‘prize’ is at the end of this particular beauty contest.
Exclusive Interview with THOMAS YOUNGBLOOD (Gifted guitarist/songwriter of epic metal rock band KAMELOT)
KAMELOT is the Epic/Symphonic metal rock band that nobody, no matter their musical taste, can resist. Formed by the mega-talented Thomas Youngblood and Richard Werner, the latter departing the band in 1997, Kamelot is one of the very few active epic metal bands that have actually managed to keep both fans and specialised media continuously enthralled by their creativity, the quality of their composition and their consistently great live sound.
Kamelot ‘speaks’ of the creation and destruction cycle in their music with a thoughtfulness and a poetry that directly sets them apart from any act that seeks the shock in what is usually a mere posing act. Their authenticity is as heartfelt as their sharp technique and depth of sound are merciless.
We were ecstatic by the chance to interview Master Youngblood on epic adventures, legendary messages and enrapturing riffs.
Exclusive Interview with OLEG DOU (One of the most captivating and copied young artists of our time)
‘I have a younger brother and he has very good drawing skills. As a kid, I suffered a lot thinking he was much more talented than me. I wanted to create as long as I remember but that was the main reason why I wanted to prove to everybody that I could do it.’_Oleg Dou
‘Ah, that guy!’ – This is the thought that usually crosses the mind of the common movie watcher or occasional movie goer, when seeing a film starred or co-starred by Sam Rockwell, or one in which he has a supporting role. Generally underrated by the general public, and often by the industry Awards-givers, the character actor, however, represents all that is genuine in the fake landscape of the movie world.
They are the film lovers turned to storytellers, the cinematic surgeons turned to celluloid-art wizards, the ever curious souls turned to emotion sculptors. They are not concerned with making millions and neither thirst for the idolization of the masses. Their goal and drive is one and one only: Bringing the story to life, so other film lovers, as well as the public at large, can, for an average of 90 min. submerge into a parallel dimension brimming with possibilities, where they can either escape and trivialize their existence or better understand it, as well as be moved, inspired and even challenged by the infinite tapestry of other humans’ existence.
