From the clip, the celebrity is seen sporting a Versace chainmail dress, while Mars dons one of his Versace button-down tops. (Mind you, the lyrics of this song indicate they will not be wearing these outfits for long.))chainmail dress, while Mars dons one of his Versace button-down tops. (Mind you, the lyrics of this song indicate they will not be wearing these outfits for long.)

The movie, which has gained over 3 million views in under 24 hours, premiered just a couple of months later Zendaya delivered a spot-on functionality of Mars’s “24K Magic” on Lip Sync Battle. In May, the Disney superstar looked wearing a silk pajama set and cap such as Mars’s, and pinpointed the measures of this tune’s choreography. The operation, which went viral caught the attention of this musician. “When the flyest man out here calls you for one of the flyest songs out … you make it happen,” Zendaya submitted on Instagram if the “Versace on the Floor” video surfaced.

After premiering the movie, Mars shared a pic on Instagram directly from his “lit” launch party. Who knew a Waffle House was the place?

Soundboard: Kerry King and Slayer are Repentless

The truth Is they don’t need much of an introduction. Slayer was synonymous because they were instrumental in the genre’s introduction 36 decades ago. Their unforgiving speed and combative riffs are iconic components into the thrash metal scene and also a pivotal reason for their reigning standing as one of “The Big Four.” And while the band has gone over the years such as the death of founding member Jeff Hanneman along with the loss of Dave Lombardo, their show hasn’t slowed or prevailed. In fact, it has done the contrary, getting new fans year by year, and becoming brands in audio and one of the biggest bands.

Over the course of the 36 year predominate, snowboarding has grown and developed from the Snurfer to the designs. And during our cherished passion’s growth and development, Slayer was there to boil our blood, to kick dirt in our own eyes, and also to instill in us the flame. I sat down with lead guitarist and founding member Kerry King before their recent operation to talk about legacies, Slayer’s relationship and the function their sway plays in politics and beyond.

Correct me if I’m incorrect, but this Year marks 36 years of Slayer, since 1981?

Yup, the very first album came out in ’83.

What did you see in Slayer and your music in the early years that told you if you kept going it would become something?

Early on, especially when we first started going to Britain, not so much Europe, but Britain for sure, there were these pockets everywhere, there was always a metal faction and a punk faction, and we were the ones that kind of brought those ideas together. And not just musically, but the fans as well. It was basically just teaching the punks and the metal heads that we are all there for the same reason and to quit beating each other up. You know, I can’t say we single-handedly did that by any means, but we were a part of it, and that was cool because that just made the fan base expand.

Do you have any good stories from those early clashes?

No, not really. You know, it was very different those first few times. What they used to do back then is they would spit on you. And they’d be like, “give me a pick.” That was their culture, and it was offensive to me. I would be like, “Why are these people spitting on me? They paid to watch us fucking playwith, and I’m only getting gobbed on.” So that took a few years to figure out and then that kind of weeded its way out. It was just a different culture that I never had any idea existed. It was weird, very weird. But you know, they weren’t doing it maliciously, that was just what they did. And I had to get used to it — we all had to get used to it.

So, “The Big Four.” What was it like for Slayer to be an instrumental part of the initial push in thrash metal?

Well, “The Big Four,” we didn’t name ourselves that, that was the media. It just stuck, and everyone uses it. So when we did those shows [The Big Four Tour] I thought man, this will be really cool for the fans. For me it was just another show, whatever, and I got out there and a week in I was like, “This is fucking rad,” I was having a good time. And you know Metallica, we didn’t have a beef or anything, we just ran in different circles for twenty to twenty five years. And while we might do a random festival with them in Europe and see them once in awhile, when I sat down with them [over The Big Four Tour] it was like, “This really is fun man, we will need to keep in touch.” It is cool to have those contacts again, because for years we didn’t talk, and not because there was an issue, we just were in different circles, so it was cool for me to get back to the early days.

That’s interesting you say that, because within snowboarding it’s very much the opposite– most riders on the top tier are actually really close. Many are even on the same event circuit, so there tends to be a lot of interaction. I never would have guessed that there would be such a disconnect between top players in the music industry.

Well you know, once the ’90’s came about, Metallica Did not require anyone. They don’t need an opener, they do not require a ring like us to start for them, plus they do not have to pay us what we are worth. That is just business because Metallica is in their different airplane.

Has there ever been any contempt For or jealousy of Metallica’s dimension? Although you guys have substantiated yourselves ten times over, but is there any element on your mind of competition or contrast?

I think in the ’80’s, up until the Black Album and Seasons — because they came out around the same time. Whenever the new product would come out, we would all be stoked to get it. It was a fun camaraderie, but also a little bit of “I’m going to make a much better song than this.” Because I know Kirk [Hammett] would be breaking down the door to get new Slayer when new Slayer came out, and when Ride the Lightning came out, I had to get it that day. Because we’re fans, I’m still a fan. It wasn’t a contest, but were always trying to do what the other guys are doing, and trying to do something better.

I think that the connection Between Slayer, snowboarding, and similar “actions” sports, kind of speaks for itself. There is an aggressive, “pump-up” element to the music that is often directed into said sport. From your perspective, what has Slayer’s role been in interacting with separate, yet intrinsically related industries like snowboarding?

My role is to just keep pumping out good tunes.

So you strictly view your role within Slayer as musical? Do you ever look at your position of influence as more than just song related?

Yeah, I mean that’s why people like us I think. We don’t try to be anything we’re not, and we didn’t try and do that out of the gate, either. We were lucky that we got together and found people that were inspired to make the same kind of music. I make up things for myself; I make up things that I think fans will like. Sometimes in lyrics — like this last record in particular — I did a bunch of unifying things, between the band, fans, and anyone listening to it. Because I thought it was important, with Dave [Lombardo] leaving and Jeff [Hanneman] dying, I wanted to show unity between us, and the fans as well. So that is one thing that I went out of my way to accomplish on this one.

How much of the experience for you is the performance vs. writing the music?

I like the performance. I would never make another record ever if I didn’t have to. But that being said, I do enjoy making up songs. I have said on a number of occasions that it’s like looking for the perfect riff, and not knowing if you have written it, come close to it, or anything like that.

Recently you had an interesting situation with the whole Trump photo fiasco, which raised the question, when do you use your channel for political leverage, and when do you just let music be music? Similarly, this past season snowboarding had its own brush with politics when many riders reacted to Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement. In your mind, at what point is it appropriate to use your channel and influence to make a difference, and at what point do you stay out of it and let your role remain as an escape?

I think Trump is a more individual ideology, for sure. The band, you know, whenever I try and address political songs, which we do, I can’t say we don’t, but I will base it on the US Government because that’s the government I know, but I try to make it vague enough so that anyone in any country can relate to it. I hate my chancellor, or, I hate my prime minister, I hate my government, I try to make it so that anyone can get something out of it, because if it was pinpointed at America, only Americans would love that song — or hate that song depending on what I say in it. I have one on the next record that is basically about Trump’s nonsense, but it’s really going to be about the republicans just fucking things up.

Do you picture the political aspect of your music as more of an expression of emotion then, or as a call to action?

It could be both. I mean a call to action would be something like “Take Control” off of the last record. And that’s one of those unifying statements where I say, “We shall take control.” That’s not just us, that’s everyone. I expect for the people that are in the crowds and sing the lyrics at us for that to be a big line.

I find that is one of the most fascinating parts about Slayer, the unifying element found in chaos. Everything stems from this aggression and anger, but the takeaway always resembles a cohesive brotherhood.

It is, and you know it evolved to that.

Looking back on the past 36 years, the Slayer band has become a brand that ultimately has had countless collaborations and partnerships, many within snowboarding and many more with other industries, how do you view and manage that side of Slayer?

This year was one of my favorites. I have always worn Metal Militia stuff, and we did a Slayer / Metal Militia co-brand — which I think should have happened ages ago because, you know, God, I met [Brian] Deegan in the early 2000’s. We used to go out and watch them practice. I was watching this year’s X Games because I had some days off, and I watched the Motorcross events and the big ramp for skateboards, the one Danny Way built years ago and now all of the younger people are killing — not killing themselves on it — but you know. Just extending the envelope. That’s what I like about the X Games and similar sports is that every year someone is doing something new, trickier, and harder.

You have a relationship with Danny Way, right?

Yeah, I saw him, I guess just before I Went to South America this year. He came out and visited, before that I hadn’t seen him in a long time.

Has he ever spoken to you about your influence on his skateboarding?

I don’t think so. This last time it was more relaxed, but all of the other times that Danny and I met you could tell that he was still being a fan-boy, and I don’t mean that detrimentally or derogatorily or anything like that. He’s a superstar. He is just more into Slayer than I am a fan of what he does. I am a fan of it, just not to that level.

That is interesting that you are able to acknowledge that difference.

Absolutely, you know when I was a kid I skateboarded a bit, I did BMX a bit, I wasn’t racing or anything, and we didn’t have cool ramps like people do these days, but friends and I would set up a piece of 4×8 plywood and set it on a picnic table and that would be our ramp. Do tricks and stuff on that thing. I had a lot of fun times with BMX and even built a few bikes myself. It was fun, but then guitar came around.

If you were to address people within the snowboarding community, us fans of your music, what would you want them to be getting out of Slayer?

Hopefully it puts them in the state of mind to have a kickass run, or to push their imagination to do a trick they never thought of. What more could you really ask?

Do you ever hope that the Slayer brand instills a more powerful or substantive message?

I think Slayer is a message of strength. It’s a message of power. It’s very edgy street metal. There is a reality to it. I mean sure, I sings songs about satan, but do I believe in satan? No I don’t, but it is imagery that we started with and carried on throughout our career. And I have never been shy about saying exactly what is on my mind. It is a good topic for Slayer, it works. I have a song for the next album that’s more fantasy based. Let’s say fantasy — that’s a good word, [laughs] but that said, there are songs like “Repentless,” there are songs like “Take Control” — which I mentioned earlier– which is just standing up to the government, be it whatever government it is. It is about unity, a unifying lifestyle like you said.

It’s hard for me to talk about it because I am so close to it. But fans have their own perspective too. I think they see us as extensions of themselves, they just don’t know how to play guitar maybe. I don’t dress like this because I’m in an interview, I dress like this if I’m going to fucking Target, [laughs] this is who I am. But you know, I think people see us as if we are the same as them. And I think we are. Just four dudes that can play the same type of music that we all love and that our fans dig us for.

You mentioned the religious element, and you have always somewhat flirted with various satanic elements in Slayer. What role does religion play in your life personally?

None at all. I’m not one of those half-hearted agnostics either. When you die you are burned or put in the dirt and nobody is going to see you again.

So it is purely just for imagery and themes–?

For sure, you know we started that way. Show No Mercy has the devil looking dude standing there with his sword. What else did I write back then? “Black Magic.” Jeff wrote “The Anti-Christ.” We started there, and rather than take out that element as we grew up and gained a stronger opinion — because we were 18, I didn’t know what I believed, maybe there was a devil — on my path to being 2017 Kerry King, I decided there is no god, there is no devil, but if there was a god, god hates me most. So that’s where “God Hates Us All” came from [laughs].

It acts as a kind of fuel.

You know it’s interesting, I like to throw things on the table, because a lot of people in America, and throughout the world, they don’t make up their own mind. Their mind is made up for them, and they have to fit in with their family, their friends, whatever. And I just like to bring provocative questions to the table. Like “God Hates Us All” — I had a real problem after I wrote that song. What do you say next? What do you say after “God hates us all”? You fucked everybody up. But obviously I found matters, And I like to throw out types of ideas. Occasionally I give my view, and Others I leave it vague, but in interviews, I always provide my opinion.

Organ Playing: How to Sit on the Organ Bench Correctly?

Because the pipe organ is the most complex of all musical instruments, it is only natural, that the art of organ playing is very complex. It is easy for the beginner to be overwhelmed by the various details, such as articulation, registration, correct notes, rhythms, fingering and pedaling. However, very first thing an aspiring organist must do is to learn the correct manner of posture and sitting on the organ bench.

So, how do you sit on the bench? We sit in the middle of the organ bench. The height of the bench should be such that your feet should be slightly touching the pedal board. Not pressing the pedals, but hovering.

Put the bench in a position exactly in parallel with the keyboards. I have seen people position the bench in such a way that its left side is farther from the keyboards than the right side. They claim this is more comfortable because the right foot does most of the work with the swell pedal.

This is not correct. If you put the bench in this position, then when you sit, your body is positioned not straight but stretched to the left side. Over time, this type of sitting may cause problems for the body. So it is best if the organ bench is in parallel with the keyboards.

The distance of the bench from the keyboards should be such that your toes should almost be touching the sharp keys. By the way, this is very useful if you want to hit the right notes on the pedal board. If your feet touch the edges of the sharp keys, you will feel the arrangement of the sharp keys in groups of two and three.

The empty spaces between B flat and C sharp and D sharp and F sharp will show you exactly where the white keys B and C, and E and F are located. This helps in getting to know the pedal board.

When you sit on the bench, try to keep your back straight, shoulders down and relaxed, breath normally. Your arms should be positioned close to the body. However, it is not uncommon for people with some piano experience to keep their arms stretched out to the sides a little. Although this position might work on the piano, it is not really correct on the organ.

It is so because many pieces for the piano involve large leaps for both hands. Therefore, the arms may not be close to the body and they must be ready to jump. But with organ music the leaps are mostly done from manual to manual. Consequently, the elbows must be close to the body.

How To Fix The 0x0eedfade "Unknown Software Exception" Error On Your PC

The 0x0eedfade error is a big problem for many Windows PCs which are continually showing the message when they cannot correctly process software or settings that are on your system. The problem with this error is specifically that your PC will try and read the various files it needs to run your software, but will somehow have a problem that will prevent it from being able to correctly process the settings. If you find this problem is showing continually on your system, you can fix it by using the tools & methods which are going to repair any of the problems that your PC may have.

This error is basically caused by the “software” (usually Internet Explorer) on your PC being unreadable and unable to load up. The problem you’re seeing will likely show in this format:

  • “The exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the application at location 0x7c812a5b”

The specific cause of this error is that there will be some problem with the program you’re trying to load. The most common issue is that “Internet Explorer” will have third party plugins which are not loading correctly. In order to resolve the problem, you first need to disable any of the third-party plugins which your Internet Explorer application may have, as well as then fixing any potential problems on the Windows system itself.

The way to resolve this error is to first make sure that Internet Explorer doesn’t have any third-party plugins which are causing problems. To do this, you should click onto “Open IE > Tools >Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Uncheck “Enable Third Party Browser Extensions (Require Restart)”. This will then allow you to load up Internet Explorer without any other software programs to disrupt or damage it, which should stop the 0x0eedfade error on most systems. On top of that, it’s also recommended that you repair your installation of Windows by updating it and then reinstalling any other programs which may be causing errors.

It’s also recommended that you use a “registry cleaner” program to scan through your PC and fix any of the potential problems that you may also have with the registry database of your system. The registry database is a large central storage facility which keeps all the files, settings and information that your computer will use to run, and is used by Windows to help load up everything from your desktop icons to your stored passwords. One of the most common causes of the 0x0eedfade error is actually down to the registry being damaged and corrupted, preventing your system from correctly being able to read the files it needs to run. To ensure this is not a problem, you should repair any potential registry errors that you have on your PC by downloading, installing and running a registry cleaner application.

Photographer Uses LED Lights To Capture The Motions Of Musicians

What about the moves a individual must perform to make songs, although we have all seen visualizations of all sound-waves? What exactly Ontario artist Stephen Orlando was able to catch.

Orlando utilizes LED lights and exposures to capture a artist’s movement. He attached the lights and asked cellists and violinists to perform, turning their activities into waves of light.

“A relative motion between the performer and camera must exist for the light trails to move through the frame,” says Orlando. “I found it easier to move the camera instead of the performer. The LEDs are programmed to change color to convey a sense of time…Each photo is a single exposure and the light trails have not been manipulated in post processing.”
