SKYFALL: 50 Years of Bond

By Gunner Glam

Studio Brow, the Cosmetic UltraLounge, is devoted to providing a customer experience like no other.  Studio Brow TV in our stores is to provide entertainment for our customers and let them know about the hottest new music videos, video games and of course movies as well.

On November 9, the latest 007 film, Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig as the lead role will be released.

Skyfall is the third 007 film to star Craig and follow the linear story that began with Casino Royale and continued with Quantum of Solace.

The story line is as follows; after an operation in Istanbul ends in disaster, James Bond (Craig) is missing and presumed dead and the identities of every active MI6 undercover agent are leaked onto the internet; as a result, M (played by  Judi Dench) becomes the subject of a government review over her handling of the situation. When the service itself is attacked, Bond’s sudden reappearance gives M the pretext she needs to seek out Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem), a dangerous villain claiming a personal connection to both of them – but as he follows a trail from London to the South China Sea, Bond soon finds his loyalty to M challenged over secrets from her past.

The first 007 film to ever be released was Dr. No starring Sean Connery in 1962 which would launched 22 sequels and a string of “secret agent” films in the following decade.

The classic opening of the Bond films seen through the barrel of a gun began with Dr. No and has been used ever since.

Over the past five decades six actors have portrayed Bond on screen; Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Craig.

On a budget of $150 million, Skyfall looks to make with a promising cast and story.

Why Brows? Part Four

 

By Gunner Glam

In our latest entry about the significance of eyebrows, we thought we would share the ways eyebrows are there for protection.

Eyebrows are pretty weird when you think about them! They’re two little bands of hair growing right above our eyeballs.

The ancestors of modern people were a lot hairier, but over time, a lot of that hair was lost. Somehow our eyebrows remained. They aren’t just there for decoration.

They play a very important role in keeping moisture out of our eyes. Just like an umbrella keeps our bodies dry from the rain, our hairy eyebrows keep our eyes dry from rain or sweat. Eyebrows, just like eyelashes and eyelids, actually work to protect your eyes.

We also use our exceptionally mobile eyebrows to communicate our emotions. The position of eyebrows emphasizes expressions on the human face thus giving others an accurate picture of the individual’s mood.

Smile comes in many forms, from expressions of merriment or contentment to leers, smirks and even anger. The position of the brow, emphasized by the eyebrows, is what gives us a visual cue to what an individual is really feeling.

Thanks for reading.

Why Brows? Part Three

By Gunner Glam

Continuing our topic of eyebrows, Studio Brow wanted to share some info taken from an article at ssdivining.homestead.com.

Eyebrows represent the senses, pleasures and attraction. If the eyebrows are thicker toward the nose and thin out toward the edges, this means that the person will set his own pleasures aside the older he gets.

Heavy eyebrows  indicate great strength.

Thick eyebrows belong to someone who is out-spoken. Exceedingly thick can mean a dictatorial nature.

Thin eyebrows show precision and attention to detail. But, very thin can mean fussiness.

Straight eyebrows show someone who is generally active, and on top of things; but can forgo details.

Gently curved eyebrows:  suggest a balanced self aware caring person.

However, downward sloping eyebrows show sambition.

Arched  eyebrows show strong sense of curiousity, but can indicate problems trusting in relationships.

Widely spaced eyebrows show someone who is influenced easily.

Close knit eyebrows show someone who is nervous.

Eyebrows that meet at the center are a sign of bad luck.

In addition, eyebrows can send body language. Being near the eyes, which are the major senders of signals, they are highly visible communicators, although the limited control of muscles around them can limit what they say.

Lowered

Lowering the eyebrows conceals the eyes to a certain degree. Particularly with a lowered head, this can thus indicate deception or a desire that eye signals are harder to see.

Lowered eyebrows may also indicate annoyance, perhaps effectively saying ‘I am so displeased, I do not want to look at you.’ Related to this, lowered eyebrows are a sign of a dominant person.

Raised

When a person is surprised, their eyebrows are often raised. This typically happens as a part of opening the eyes wider, perhaps to see more clearly what is going on. The more the surprise, the higher the eyebrows are raised.

Raising the eyebrows asks for attention from others and can signal general emphasis. When as question is asked and the eyebrows are raised afterwards, this is a clear invitation to answer the question.

Opposite to the dominant lowering of eyebrows, raising eyebrows is may be a submissive move or indicate openness, as it lets the other person see your eyes (‘I am not looking where I should not!’). Dominance and attractive signals can often be similar and raising eyebrows to expose eyes can also be a signal of attraction (‘I’m looking at you, gorgeous. Can you see?’).

Raising a single eyebrow is something that only some people can do and can be a bit more wry in its meaning, for example showing cynicism and asking ‘Are you sure?’ when the other person appears to be talking with limited accuracy.

Middle-raised

By pushing together the eyebrows and pulling up the forehead, the eyebrows can be made to slope outwards. This can indicate relief (‘Whew!’). It can also indicate anxiety (‘Oh no!’).

Middle-lowered

When the middle of the eyebrows are pulled down so they slope inwards, this often shows that the person is angry or frustrated. It can also indicate intense concentration.

Middle together

When the eyebrows are pulled together, it can indicate confusion or an attempt to perceive better (‘what’s that?’).

An inverted horseshoe-shaped fold between the brow is known as ‘Darwin’s grief muscle’ and often indicates sadness.

Up and down

When we see people we know, we often give a quick single up-down ‘eyebrow flash’ in recognition and greeting. This is a common signal across all primates, including monkeys and gorillas.

Rapid and repeated up and down movement may be an exaggerated signal, meaning ‘Well how about that then!’ in the way that Groucho Marx used it.

Rock & Roll Icons

By Gunner Glam

Elvis Presley was one of the most popular American singers of the 20th century. A cultural icon, he is widely known by the single name, Elvis. He is often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll” or simply “The King.” Born in Tupelo, Mississippi, Presley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, with his family at the age of 13. He began his career there in 1954, working with Sun Records owner Sam Phillips, who wanted to bring the sound of African American music to a wider audience. Accompanied by guitarist Scotty Moore and bassist Bill Black, Presley was the most important popularizer of rockabilly, an up-tempo, backbeat-driven fusion of country and rhythm and blues. RCA Victor acquired his contract in a deal arranged by Colonel Tom Parker, who would manage the singer for over two decades. Presley’s first RCA single, “Heartbreak Hotel,” released in January 1956, was a number one hit. He became the leading figure of the newly popular sound of rock and roll with a series of network television appearances and chart-topping records. His energized interpretations of songs, many from African American sources, and his uninhibited performance style made him enormously popular—and controversial. In November 1956, he made his film debut in Love Me Tender.

The Rolling Stones is an English rock band formed in London in 1962 and one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. The group’s earliest line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar, vocals), Bill Wyman (bassist) and Charlie Watts (drummer). Since 1993, the band has consisted of Jagger, Richards, Watts and guitarist Ronnie Wood. In studio and live performances, Darryl Jones (bassist) and Chuck Leavell (keyboardist) also serve as regular contributors. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, the Rock Hall states; “Critical acclaim and popular consensus has accorded them the title of the “World’s Greatest Rock and Roll Band.” They were ranked fourth in Rolling Stone magazine’s 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, and their worldwide sales are estimated at more than 200 million albums.

Eric Clapton is an English guitarist and singer-songwriter. Clapton is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist, and separately as a member of The Yardbirds and Cream. Clapton has been referred to as one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time. Clapton ranked second in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and fourth in Gibson’s Top 50 Guitarists of All Time. In the mid 1960s, Clapton departed from the Yardbirds to play blues with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers. In his one-year stay with Mayall, Clapton gained the nickname “Slowhand.” Immediately after leaving Mayall, Clapton formed Cream, a power trio with drummer Ginger Baker and bassist Jack Bruce in which Clapton played sustained blues improvisations and “arty, blues-based psychedelic pop.”

Jimi Hendrix was an American musician and singer-songwriter. He is widely considered to be the greatest electric guitarist in music history and one of the most influential musicians of his era despite mainstream exposure limited to four years.  After initial success in Europe with his group, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, he achieved fame in the United States following his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, he headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival and the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. He often favored raw overdriven amplifiers with high gain and treble and helped develop the previously undesirable technique of guitar amplifier feedback. Hendrix helped to popularize use of the wah-wah pedal in mainstream rock, which he often used to deliver tonal exaggerations in his solos, particularly with high bends, complex guitar playing, and use of legato. As a record producer, he also broke new ground in using the recording studio as an extension of his musical ideas. Hendrix was a pioneer in experimentation with stereophonic phasing effects in recordings made of rock music. He was influenced by blues artists such as B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Albert King and Elmore James, rhythm and blues and soul guitarists Curtis Mayfield and Steve Cropper, and the jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. Hendrix began dressing and wearing a moustache like Little Richard when he performed and recorded in his band from March 1, 1964 through to the spring of 1965. In 1966, he stated, “I want to do with my guitar what Little Richard does with his voice.”

The Who is an English rock band formed in 1964 by Roger Daltrey (lead vocals, harmonica and guitar), Pete Townshend (guitar, keyboards and vocals), John Entwistle (bass guitar, brass and vocals) and Keith Moon (drums and percussion). They became known for energetic live performances which often included instrument destruction. The Who have sold about 100 million records, and have charted 27 top forty singles in the United Kingdom and United States, as well as 17 top ten albums, with 18 Gold, 12 Platinum and 5 Multi-Platinum album awards in the United States alone. The Who rose to fame in the UK with a series of top ten hit singles, boosted in part by pirate radio stations such as Radio Caroline, beginning in January 1965 with I Can’t Explain. The albums My Generation (1965), A Quick One (1966) and The Who Sell Out (1967) followed, with the first two reaching the UK top five. They first hit the US Top 40 in 1967 with “Happy Jack” and hit the top ten later that year with “I Can See for Miles.” Their fame grew with memorable performances at the Monterey Pop, Woodstock and Isle of Wight music festivals. The 1969 release of Tommy was the first in a series of top ten albums in the US, followed by Live at Leeds (1970), Who’s Next (1971), Quadrophenia (1973), The Who by Numbers (1975), Who Are You (1978) and The Kids Are Alright (1979).

Black Sabbath is an English rock band, formed in Aston, Birmingham in 1969 by Ozzy Osbourne (lead vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass guitar) and Bill Ward (drums). The band has since experienced multiple line-up changes, with Tony Iommi the only constant presence in the band through the years. Originally formed in 1968 as a heavy blues rock band named Earth and renamed Black Sabbath in 1969, the band began incorporating occult and horror-inspired lyrics with tuned-down guitars and achieving multiple platinum records in the 1970s. Despite an association with occult and horror themes, Black Sabbath also composed songs dealing with social instability, political corruption and the dangers of drug abuse and apocalyptic prophesies of the horrors of war. Black Sabbath’s members are cited as pioneers of heavy metal. The band helped define the genre with releases such as quadruple-platinum Paranoid, released in 1970. They were ranked by MTV as the “Greatest Metal Band” of all time and placed second in VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock” list, behind Led Zeppelin. Rolling Stone called the band “the heavy-metal kings of the ’70s.” They have sold over 15 million records in the United States and over 70 million records worldwide.  Black Sabbath were inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005, the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006, and were included among Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

 Led Zeppelin was an English rock band, active in the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s. Formed as the New Yardbirds in 1968, the band consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. They are widely considered to be one of the most successful, innovative and influential rock groups in history. After changing their name, the band signed a favorable deal with Atlantic Records that allowed them considerable artistic freedom. Led Zeppelin disliked releasing their songs as singles; they viewed their albums as indivisible and complete listening experiences, thus promoting the concept of album-orientated rock. Due to the heavy, guitar-driven blues-rock sound of their first two albums, Led Zeppelin are frequently recognised as the progenitors of heavy metal and hard rock. However, the band’s individualistic style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music, which they incorporated into their next two albums. Their untitled fourth album, which features the track “Stairway to Heaven,” is among the most popular and influential works in rock music, and it cemented the status of the group as “superstars.” Subsequent albums saw greater experimentation and were accompanied by record-breaking tours, which earned them a reputation for excess. Although they remained commercially and critically successful, in the later 1970s the band’s output and touring schedule were limited by the personal difficulties and circumstances of the members.

Rush is a Canadian rock band formed in August 1968, in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario. The band is composed of bassist, keyboardist and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist and backing vocalist Alex Lifeson and drummer, percussionist and lyricist Neil Peart. The band and its membership went through a number of re-configurations between 1968 and 1974, achieving their current form when Peart replaced original drummer John Rutsey in July 1974, two weeks before the group’s first United States tour. Rutsey’s departure stemmed primarily from health concerns regarding his diabetes. Since the release of the band’s self-titled debut album in March 1974, Rush has become known for its musicianship, complex compositions and eclectic lyrical motifs drawing heavily on science fiction, fantasy and philosophy. Rush’s music style has changed over the years, beginning with blues-inspired heavy metal on their first album, then encompassing hard rock, progressive rock and a period with heavy use of synthesizers. They have been cited as an influence by various musical artists, including Metallica, Primus and The Smashing Pumpkins, as well as progressive metal bands such as Dream Theater and Symphony X.

Pink Floyd was an English rock band that achieved international success with their progressive and psychedelic rock music marked by the use of philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation and elaborate live shows. One of the most commercially successful and influential rock groups in the history of popular music, they have sold over 250 million records worldwide, including 74.5 million certified units in the United States. They were inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996, and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. The band originally consisted of university students Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Richard Wright, and Syd Barrett. Founded in 1965, they gained popularity performing in London’s underground music scene during the late 1960s. Under Barrett’s creative leadership they released two charting singles, “Arnold Layne” and “See Emily Play,” and a successful début album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967). Guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour joined as a fifth member in December 1967, several months prior to Barrett’s April 1968 departure due to deteriorating mental health. With the loss of Syd, the band moved from psychedelic pop to a more progressive sound, with many tracks written collaboratively while on tour. With this line-up they achieved critical and commercial success with the concept albums The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977) and The Wall (1979). With Animals and The Wall, Waters became the primary songwriter.

Metallica is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California, whose releases include fast tempos, instrumentals and aggressive musicianship that placed them as one of the founding “big four” of thrash metal alongside Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. The band formed in 1981 when James Hetfield responded to an advertisement that drummer Lars Ulrich had posted in a local newspaper. As of 2003, the line-up features long-time lead guitarist Kirk Hammett (who joined the band in 1983) and bassist Robert Trujillo (a member since 2003) alongside Hetfield and Ulrich. Previous members of the band are lead guitarist Dave Mustaine (who went on to found the band Megadeth) and bassists Ron McGovney, Cliff Burton and Jason Newsted. The band also had a long collaboration with producer Bob Rock, who produced all of its albums from 1990 to 2003 and served as a temporary bassist between the departure of Newsted and the hiring of Trujillo. The band earned a growing fan-base in the underground music community and critical acclaim with its third album Master of Puppets (1986), described as one of the most influential and “heavy” thrashes metal albums. Metallica achieved substantial commercial success with their eponymous fifth album (also known as The Black Album), which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. With this release the band expanded its musical direction resulting in an album that appealed to a more mainstream audience.

Nirvana was an American rock band that was formed by singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain and bassist Krist Novoselic in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana went through a succession of drummers, the longest-lasting being Dave Grohl, who joined the band in 1990. In the late 1980s Nirvana established itself as part of the Seattle grunge scene, releasing its first album Bleach for the independent record label Sub Pop in 1989. The band eventually came to develop a sound that relied on dynamic contrasts, often between quiet verses and loud, heavy choruses. After signing to major label DGC Records, Nirvana found unexpected success with “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” the first single from the band’s second album Nevermind (1991). Nirvana’s sudden success widely popularized alternative rock as a whole, and the band’s frontman Cobain found himself referred to in the media as the “spokesman of a generation,” with Nirvana being considered the “flagship band” of Generation X. Nirvana’s third studio album In Utero (1993), challenged the group’s audience, featuring an abrasive, less-mainstream sound. The album didn’t match the sales figures of Nevermind but was still a commercial success.

Why Brows? Part One

By Gunner Glam

You may have wondered, “What is the evolutionary significance of a pair of eyebrows?”

There are sources which suggest eyebrows are more than just hair follicles above humans’ eyes, but also express emotions that come before words.

Studio Brow would like to share some insight on why eyebrows are significant beyond just hygiene and cosmetics.

Eyebrows are a major facial feature. Cosmetic methods have been developed to alter the look of one’s brows, whether the goal is to add or remove hair, change the color or change the position of the brow.

From the eighth century, many Japanese noblewomen practiced hikimayu, which is shaving or plucking the eyebrow hair and painting smudge-like ones higher on the forehead.

In an online article, by Judy Rong, called “Chinese Face Reading: Your Eyebrows and You, Foreshadowing in the Eyebrows,” there is wealth of information of how much people’s eyebrows can say about them.

In the modern age of beauty, the shape of the eyebrows is no longer determined by nature. However, some background is still useful for those interested in what their eyebrows say when it comes to face reading.

Extends Pass the Eye
In the text for face reading, when the eyebrows extend much beyond the eyes, this person is destined to have four to six siblings. Modern intervention, however, can make this prediction somewhat inaccurate.

Short Eyebrows
If long eyebrows mean lots of siblings, does short eyebrows indicate fewer siblings? That is correct. In addition, the eyebrows govern fortunes between 31 to 34 years of age. A short eyebrow indicates that between 31 and 34, a person will have more disruptions in their professional and personal life.

Thick & Dark
A person with thick and dark eyebrows is very active and friendly. They like to have parties and treat their friends. However, when they are 31 to 34 years of age, they will encounter disruptions or hardships. If they work hard, their hardship will turn into essential training for later events in their life.

Light Brows
Females with light and sparse brows make good assistants. They are more detail oriented and will follow directions to the letter. In addition, they know how to organize their work and make good arrangements for different situations and events.

Straight
A person with a straight horizontal brow has extremely strong convictions. They will hold to their own beliefs no matter what. They will argue for it until it is the only conviction.

Pointed Upwards
People with brows that points upward have very strong work ethics and will ask the same of others. They are generally regarded as leadership material.

Broken Brow
If a person has a disruption in their eyebrows, this means they lack connections to their siblings. This includes siblings who have passed away. In addition, they will encounter disruptions especially at the age of 31 to 34.

Unibrow
A person with a unibrow will not have the best of luck before 30. It is possible that they didn’t have a good learning environment or had grades that were just passing. Thus they would not have much luck at the early stages of their life. In addition, the hairs cover the space between the brows, which is a focal point in a person’s energy and spirit. This will affect their mood and behavior. Resolving this is actually rather easy; just pluck the hairs to reverse the downward trend of luck.

Curling
If the hairs on the eyebrows curl in a circle at one point or another that means the personal relationships between siblings are not that strong. In addition, for this particular type of eyebrow, from 31 to 40 years of age, a person will have many bad influences around them.

Different Length/Shape/Position                                                                                                                                                                                       If one eyebrow is definitely higher, longer, or straighter than the other, this means this person will have more than one father or more than one mother. In addition from 31 to 34 years of age, their fortune will be turbulent, sometimes good and sometimes bad.

Thin and Moon Shaped
If the eyebrow is thin and moon shaped, this indicates this person is gentle and considerate. For women, it also means they are more traditional when it comes to marriage, raising children, and so forth. They also have good work ethics and will have a good chance of promotions when they are 31 to 34 years of age.

Big Mess
If the eyebrows resemble a big mess, that means they aren’t good at keep money. This is a money-loss eyebrow. Even if other facial features indicate good fortunes, the money-loss brow is a low point that is hard to overcome.

Mole
If there is a mole within the eyebrow, it is generally a good sign. A person with this kind of eyebrows will be well off. If it’s hardly visible, it means that their wealth is not ostentatious, that people rarely know they have money. If the mole is large and prominent, it is just like showing everyone your wealth. Others will attempt to usurp it from you, and therefore this brow indicates an inability to save. To overcome this, they must be very careful and pretend to be lacking in their savings while putting a set amount away every single time.

What do your eyebrows say about your fortunes? Remember these predictions are not written in stone. Even if they are right about you, once you know what you lack, you can seek to rectify the situation or be careful in the things that you do.

All-Time Action Heroes

By Gunner Glam

When it comes to movies, some will make people laugh and some will make people cry. Studio Brow would like to share the top characters who make adrenaline rush and keep folks on the edge of their seats.

Alien – Ellen Ripley (played by Sigourney Weaver) – Ripley is introduced in Alien (1979) as a warrant officer aboard the Nostromo, a spaceship from planet Thedus returning to Earth. Placed in stasis, she awakens after receiving a transmission of unknown origin from a nearby planetoid. Following their landing, an unknown creature infiltrates the ship, and kills every member of the crew. Ripley is the only member to escape from the Nostromo prior to its explosion, which she deliberately commenced to kill the monster. However, she discovers that the Alien is also aboard the ship’s shuttle, but expels it into space before putting herself in stasis for the return trip to Earth.

Tomb Raider – Lara Croft (played by Angelina Jolie) – Although she had not been a fan of the character, Jolie considered the role as a “big responsibility,” citing anxiety about fans’ high expectations. Producer Lawrence Gordon felt she was a perfect fit for the role. Jolie trained rigorously for the action scenes required for the role, occasionally sustaining injuries. Her training focused on practising the physical skills necessary to perform the film’s stunts. The difficulty of the training and injuries discouraged her, but she continued working through production. Jolie also encountered difficulties when working the guns, bungee jumping, and manoeuvring with the braid. West had not anticipated that Jolie would do her own stunts, and was impressed, as was stunt coordinator Simon Crane, by the effort she put into them.

Underworld – Selene (played by Kate Beckinsale) Beckinsale stated that it was markedly different to her previous work and  said she was grateful for the change of pace after appearing in “a bunch of period stuff and then a bunch of romantic comedies.” Beckinsale said, “It was quite a challenge for me to play an action heroine and pull off all that training when [in real life] I can’t catch a ball if it’s coming my way.”

The Brave One – Erica Bain (played by Jodie Foster) As radio show host Erica Bain (Foster) and her Indian fiancé, David (Naveen Andrews), are walking their dog at Stranger’s Gate in New York’s Central Park, they are attacked by three violent criminals. David dies from his injuries, but Bain survives. Angry and traumatized, she attempts to purchase a gun. Unwilling to wait the month required to obtain a notice of approval, she acquires a pistol illegally, and is drawn into a world of vigilantism, killing random criminals and attempting to track down the thugs who killed David.

Machete – She’ (played by Michelle Rodriguez) Also called Luz, a taco-truck lady with a rebellious spirit and revolutionary heart. Rodriguez was the first actor to be cast in the film who wasn’t in the film’s original trailer. Machete (played by Danny Trejo), with the help of Luz (Rodriguez), the leader of an illegal immigrant aid movement known as the Network, recruits Padre (Cheech Marin), Machete’s “holy” brother.

First Blood – John Rambo (played by Sylvester Stallone) was deployed to South Vietnam in September 1966. He returned to the U.S. in 1967 and began training in the Special Forces (Green Berets) at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. In late 1969, Rambo was re-deployed to Vietnam. In November 1971, he was captured by North Vietnamese forces near the Chinese-Vietnamese border and held at a POW camp, where he and other American POWs were repeatedly tortured. Rambo escaped captivity in May 1972, but was then re-deployed. At some point in his military career he also apparently received training in flying helicopters. Rambo received his military discharge on September 17, 1974. Upon his return to the U.S., Rambo discovered that many American civilians hated the returning soldiers from Vietnam, and he claimed himself along with other returning soldiers were subject to humiliation and embarrassment by anti-war “hippies” who throw garbage at them, call them “baby killers,” and exclude them from society. His experiences in Vietnam and back home resulted in an extreme case of post-traumatic stress disorder. At the same time, inner questions of self identity cause Rambo to lash out at society rather than handling difficult situations in a “civilized” manner. This is where First Blood picks up from.

Die Hard – John McClane (played by Bruce Willis) In the first Die Hard film in 1988, John McClane is an Irish-American detective with the New York City Police Department and has been an on the force for 11 years. At the beginning of the first film, he is recently separated from his wife Holly Gennero (Bonnie Bedelia), who is using her maiden name. Holly moved to Los Angeles several months earlier to pursue a career, leading to their separation when McClane stayed behind (to officially cope with some open cases but unofficially because he didn’t expect her to last). They have two children, Lucy and John. On Christmas Eve, McClane visits his wife at her workplace at the Nakatomi Plaza. Simultaneously, Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) initiates his plan to steal $640 million in bearer bonds and takes the Nakatomi Company employees, including Holly, hostage, posing as terrorists to draw attention away from the theft, their final plan being to blow up the building and make it appear as though they died with the hostages in the explosion. McClane escapes detection and manages to hide throughout the building, killing the terrorists one by one.

They Live – John Nada (played by Roddy Piper) After a budget of approximately three million dollars was raised, Carpenter began casting the film. For the crucial role of Nada, the filmmaker cast professional wrestler Roddy Piper, whom he met at WrestleMania III earlier in 1987. For Carpenter it was an easy choice: “Unlike most Hollywood actors, Roddy has life written all over him.”  A nameless unemployed drifter, referred to as “Nada” (Piper), finds construction work in Los Angeles and befriends fellow worker Frank Armitage (Keith David), who leads him to a local shantytown soup kitchen. There Nada notices strange activity around the church and procures an untouched, hidden box. At an alleyway he opens it to find it contains black sunglasses and takes a pair, which reveal the true look of an alien race controlling what people see and think, while disguised as human beings.

Army of Darkness – Ash Williams (played by Bruce Campbell) created by director Sam Raimi. Ash has faced off against his loved ones inside an abandoned cabin as they are possessed by “deadites,” the evil souls of the dead. He was named the 24th Greatest Movie Character of All Time by Empire Magazine. In the film, Ash is accidentally transported to 1300 A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home. Ash must also defeat his alter-ego known as “Bad Ash” who is leading the Army of Darkness to steal the Necronomicon (Book of the Dead).

 Terminator 2 – T-800 (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) A Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 Terminator, is the main antagonist in the original Terminator film. An identical Series 800 Model 101, having been reprogrammed by the resistance in the future, is one of the protagonists in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Schwarzenegger plays an updated T-850 unit, with the same outward appearance as the Series 800. His character is destroyed at the end of each of these films. The fourth installment, Terminator Salvation, reveals the origin of the 101 Model.

The Colors of the World

By Gunner Glam

Studio Brow would like to share a colorful poem by Marge Piercy to kick off this excellent weekend. Enjoy.

Purple as tulips in May, mauve

into lush velvet, purple

as the stain blackberries leave

on the lips, on the hands,

the purple of ripe grapes

sunlit and warm as flesh.

Every day I will give you a color,

like a new flower in a bud vase

on your desk. Every day

I will paint you, as women

color each other with henna

on hands and on feet.

Red as henna, as cinnamon,

as coals after the fire is banked,

the cardinal in the feeder,

the roses tumbling on the arbor

their weight bending the wood

the red of the syrup I make from petals.

Orange as the perfumed fruit

hanging their globes on the glossy tree,

orange as pumpkins in the field,

orange as butterflyweed and the monarchs

who come to eat it, orange as my

cat running lithe through the high grass.

Yellow as a goat’s wise and wicked eyes,

yellow as a hill of daffodils,

yellow as dandelions by the highway,

yellow as butter and egg yolks,

yellow as a school bus stopping you,

yellow as a slicker in a downpour.

Here is my bouquet, here is a sing

song of all the things you make

me think of, here is oblique

praise for the height and depth

of you and the width too.

Here is my box of new crayons at your feet.

Green as mint jelly, green

as a frog on a lily pad twanging,

the green of cos lettuce upright

about to bolt into opulent towers,

green as Grand Chartreuse in a clear

glass, green as wine bottles.

Blue as cornflowers, delphiniums,

bachelors’ buttons. Blue as Roquefort,

blue as Saga. Blue as still water.

Blue as the eyes of a Siamese cat.

Blue as shadows on new snow, as a spring

azure sipping from a puddle on the blacktop.

Cobalt as the midnight sky

when day has gone without a trace

and we lie in each other’s arms

eyes shut and fingers open

and all the colors of the world

pass through our bodies like strings of fire.

Most Basic Beautiful

By Gunner Glam

Without having to spend a fortune on makeup, clothes or accessories, learning the style which makes you look beautiful in absence everything is very important.

Studio Brow would like to share some suggestions according to the web site, Overall Beauty.

  • Got to get ready fast after-work that dinner party or date? Here’s how to get your makeup done quickly.

1- Strengthen eye shadow, a little darker at outer corner and on eyebrow bone.
2- Add a touch of iridescence, if desired.
3- Line under bottom eyelashes with brown or black pencil. Smudge with cotton swab for a smoky eye.
4- Add extra coat of mascara.
5- Add a touch of shimmer to your lips.
6- Strengthen lower lip pout by using a darker lip pencil in the center of lower lip line – All this can be down after work in the bathroom if need be. If you are not the only one that is, in the bathroom. If so then keep at your desk a good size hand mirror, better still the type with lights.

  • If you’re not happy with the texture of your hair, switch shampoos. Sometimes a slight difference in ingredients will change the way your hair looks.
  • The job of foundation is to create a smooth, flawless, clear palette upon which you design and emphasize your best features.
  • When people look at you, where do you want them to focus? If your best asset is your face, wear:

A good makeup job,
A great haircut,
A flattering color near your face,
Outstanding earrings,
A flattering shade of hair color.

  • A final, color-rinse will make your hair shinier!

“Self-confidence is not looking at yourself in the mirror when you’re in public.”

  • A bright red lipstick can make your teeth look yellow, but a blue-red makes them look whiter. As you hunt for that perfect red remember that tip.
  • Don’t use non-waterproof mascara on lower lashes, it smudges into your eye shadow and under-eye cream. It is sometimes better to wear a waterproof mascara on the lower lashes and a non-waterproof on your upper lashes. Waterproof mascara is hard on your lashes is worn all the time so why not wear it on just one set of lashes?
  • Always make your nails an even length by filing them down to match the  shortest one. As much as that might kill you. Short and even beats all different degrees of long. Nail Polish will help hide the fact your nails are short.
  • Makeup on the beach is just inappropriate. Like they are looking at your face, not if bath suit you been working hard on looking good in is doing its trick. Just be natural, all you really need with waterproof mascara and lip balm with sunscreen. Don’t forget your suntan lotion and be willing to ask for and offer a helping hand when need be with putting it on. True fun in the sun!
  • Nails that are not well groomed detract from your style. Keep them perfect withthe use of a emery board, hand cream, polish remover, cuticle scissors, base coat and your favorite color.

“Self-confidence is always being willing to help a friend look better.”

  • For an instant lift, highlight your hair. You can benefit with bring light to your face.
  • What we think “style” means: Your clothes look like they belong to you. Your accessories polish your look, your makeup is quietly correct; your beauty allows your personal charm to show though.
  • Eye shadow technique for every shape eye: Stroke on a light base all over the lid. Place a medium-tone shadow in the corner and drag it about one-third towards the center. Line the crease with a medium tone, blend gently and you’re done!

“Self-confidence is keeping a friend’s secret. You’ll end being better friends.”

  • When putting on eye shadow blow slightly on the brush before starting to put it on your eye lid. By doing that you can save time by not having to clean so much of it off your cheek when you are done putting it on.
  • Beauty routines that are a must! Create your own routine and stick to it!

Moisturize your face,
Rub creamy lotion on your hands and feet,
Shampoo frequently,
Get a manicure,
A pedicure,
and a brow wax (wink) to keep their shape as regularly as you can. You would be surprised how much differences it makes when you do.

  • Use your favorite choice of fragrance to change your mood, as well as that of others around you. A beautiful scent is hard to beat as a mood changer.
  • Don’t be afraid to switch products. Even though you like a particular makeup, technology, is always developing new products and one may more effective for you. Experiment. You can always go back. Who doesn’t get bored sometimes using the same product everyday and not want to change?
  • A facial is something that you deserve! It will work for you as it cleans, softens and revitalizes your skin. Its very relaxing to have someone cleanse your face.
  • A light foundation color is always a better choice than a dark one, which may just muddy your skin.
  • If you want your eyes to stand out, line the outer two-thirds of your eye, top and bottom, then smudge the lines to soften the effect. Depending the look your going for, Blues, Purples, Gold, Brown, Charcoal or your basic Black are great choices.
  • Buy only foundation with sun block. Most foundations have sun block these days anyway.
  • Always remember a great haircut eliminates bad hair days.

“Most of all, being self-confidence is being able to give away a personal beauty secret and not think twice about it.”

Might As Well Jump!

By Gunner Glam

Instead of just being the action of springing clear off the ground or other support by a sudden muscular effort, jumping can also take on different meanings.

Studio Brow thought we would share just how many ways there are to JUMP!

  • Jump the Shark – An idiom created by American radio personality, Jon Hein, that is used to describe the moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery. The phrase is also used to refer to a particular scene, episode or aspect of a show in which the writers use some type of “gimmick” in a desperate attempt to keep viewers’ interest.

In its initial usage, it referred to the point in a television program’s history when the program had outlived its freshness and viewers had begun to feel that the show’s writers were out of new ideas. Often, it is after great effort was made to revive interest in the show by the writers, producers or network, particularly in Happy Days when Fonzy literally jumped over a shark using water skis.

The usage of “jump the shark” has subsequently broadened beyond television, indicating the moment in its evolution when a brand, design or creative effort moves beyond the essential qualities that initially defined its success, beyond relevance or recovery.

  • Jump the Gun – To being before the starting signal, originally used in sports contests that are started by firing a gun. Also to do something too soon, especially without thinking carefully about it.
  • Jump Ship –  When someone leaves a job or activity suddenly before it is finished, especially to go and work for someone else.
  • Jumping Jacks – A physical jumping exercise performed by jumping to a position with the legs spread wide and the hands touching overhead and then returning to a position with the feet together and the arms at the sides. The name comes from the traditional toy of the same title.
  • Get Jumped – When a person gets attacked by a group of two or more of people.
  • Feeling Jumpy – When a person feels nervous, high-strung, edgy characterized by fitful, jerky movements.
  • Long Jump – A Track & Field event in which athletes combine speed, strength and agility in an attempt to leap as far as possible from a take off point. This event has been an Olympic medal event since the first modern Olympics in 1896 and has a history in the Ancient Olympic Games.
  • Jump Suit – Originally referred to the utilitarian one-piece garments used by skydivers, but has come to be used as a common term for any one-piece garment with sleeves and legs. Particular usage includes for pilots, drivers, sportspersons and prisoners.

How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

By Gunner Glam

Studio Brow drives to deliver the best customer service possible and through the web deliver tips on ways to stay beautiful.

Here is some advice on washing your hair on a regular basis, according to an article on Yahoo.com:

About 90 percent of Americans shampoo on a daily basis.

A hundred years ago, people only washed their hair monthly and in the 1950s, it was customary for women to have their hair washed and set once a week at the salon.

A clean head of hair feels fresh and smells great but over-washing can turn one’s healthy locks into a pile of straw.

The average person’s hair grows less than half an inch per month so long strands that have been subjected to a lot of shampooing (as well as chemical treatments, blow drying and the elements), tend to get dried out and dull at the ends and even break off. Dirtier hair-gasp-also holds a style better.

How often you need to shampoo depends on how oily your scalp is and your hair’s texture. Oil-known as sebum-travels more easily down smooth, straight hair, making it look greasier faster.

Sounds a little gross, but sebum helps moisturize and waterproof the hair shaft. This is one reason why curly or coarse hair is drier.

When you wash every day, you typically strip off this natural moisturizer and then have to slather it back on in the form of commercial conditioner.

Joe Murray, owner of Hale Organic Salon in New York City, told Yahoo! Shine that shampooing a couple of times a week is plenty.

“If you can’t stand a being a little oily,” Murray said. “Then coat your wet hair with conditioner up to the ears to protect it and then just wash the scalp.”

On gym days, try simply rinsing with water instead of shampooing and finish with a light conditioner to detangle.

Another tip Murray offered is to “spot clean around the hairline with a little dry shampoo. It will also help stretch the time between blow outs.”

Shampooing does stimulate the scalp, which brings blood flow and healthy nutrients to the hair follicles. As an alternative, Murray said he is a fan of a gentle daily scalp massage and regular brushing with a good quality hairbrush.

People with flaky scalps may be inclined to shampoo frequently, but dermatologist and spokesperson for the American Academy of Dermatology, Nia Terezakis, MD said this can actually exacerbate the problem.

“When you have a flaky scalp its not dirty, its dandruff or a form of psoriasis,” she explained to Yahoo! Shine. “Use a shampoo formulated for dandruff and let it sit on your scalp for 20 seconds before rinsing.”

You can follow up with a separate shampoo and conditioner of your choice, “But don’t scrub,” she advised. “It will flake even more.”

When you choose a shampoo, Terezakis said to pick a product that is made for your specific hair type whether it be oily, dry, limp, curly, etc.

“Companies spend a lot of money on cosmetic chemists and different products really do work.” One exception: “Baby shampoos aren’t necessarily gentle on adult hair,” she warned. “They are made because babies squirm. They don’t sting the eyes but they can be drying.”

If you are used to washing your hair daily, it can take a few weeks to get used to a new routine. You may be over producing sebum to compensate for stripping the scalp. Gradually increase the days between shampooing and see if your hair becomes healthier and takes more time to appear dirty as a result.

The Journey: As Simple as a Nature Walk

By Gunner Glam

There are many different ways to go on a journey; walking, car trip, boat ride and so on.

Studio Brow is not only a central cosmetic destination, we are here to help people realize their true look and beauty while taking life’s journey.

Going on a nature walk can help clear the mind while getting exercise.

A walk along the beach where the sun sets the stage is always a good way to explore the inner self.

In addition to going out among the green, a car ride can help bring back memories of places people used to go.

A boat ride can help a person engage in the ocean or rivers and get a feel of life around and below.

At times, the better part of an event is going there.

When do people know who they are and who they are meant to become?

At times, does it seem like people are not living the life they dreamed of when you were children?

Does the life people are living feel sometimes like it belongs to someone else?

The only way to discover the life people were destined for is to take a journey of self discovery.

Journeys of self discovery are the stuff of legends, myths and fairy tales.

Regardless of the differing names, lands and rewards they all speak about the same journey to know and value oneself.

Often people ask themselves, “Where does the hero begin?”

Where is the heroine going?

And who are they becoming as they move along on the path of self discovery?

What path is the right one?
