Thank you for your talent and hard work.

The sun was settling down during the evening time, just as I awaking from a short afternoon nap in between classes. A peek out the window showed the sunset radiating at the horizon, and emitted a dark orange and brownish light just before fading off to be replaced by the night time sky and the moon. In the background, I could hear music playing from one of room of one of my suite-mates. It sounded like some kind rock-and-roll or heavy metal, and it was a sound that I didn't like at the time. I just listened from a distance in my room, and while getting up to prepare for the evening set of classes, I heard a lot of drums in the song, and could hear the chorus singing Even flowwwww.. thoughts arrive like ... As time went on, eventually I started hearing the same song in different places ... Even flowwwwww... thoughts arrive like butterflies .. and the tune was very familiar at that point.. then, Jeremy spoke in ... claaass todayyyyyyyyy. Hearing this song outside, at parties, everywhere. I began liking the songs .. and discovered that these songs were by Pearl Jam. At some point, I wanted to have the songs myself to play, so I went and purchased the Pearl Jam Ten CD. This is where the journey continued. I played the CD from start to finish, over and over and over again.... The more I played, the more I liked the songs, the compilation, the progression of the music, the drums, the vocals, the entire emotion within the music. It had captured my attention in a big way, and I looked forward to hearing again and again. I slowly began listening and learning the song lyrics, to sing along, and air drummed or air guitared wherever I was at when the music was on. This music provided a high level of motivation, emotion, reflection, excitement, and nostalgia ... Looking back from today, all of those emotions are still there when playing, and it is amazing how the songs on Ten where created. Definitely authentic alternative rock, original, a masterpiece. I recommend you check Pearl Jam Ten out if you enjoy alternative rock, rock and roll, drums, music that provides heavy reflection on life. Thank you Pearl Jam for all of your contributions.

Wesley Snipes
Thank you for your talent and hard work.

Wesley Snipes is very much an established and well-known actor, since my childhood years. Welsey has acted in many movies, taken on a variety of roles, and is an outstanding actor. In particular, I am impressed by the tremendous level of self-discipline and training required to carry out the different roles (especially the martial arts aspect - which I know is something he mentioned he trained in from young, and enjoys acting out on screen). In all this, Wesley still finds a way to be both very serious, and smile at the same time. It is his natural gift and art. While I do like a diverse set of movies in which Wesley Snipes has acted, one specific movie that I personally enjoyed was the Art of War - I believe it captures mystery, action, martial arts, international exposure, sophistication in theme - all what I view are characteristics of Wesley Snipes as a true thespian and character. Thank you Wesley for all of your contributions, your example, your continued diligence and hard-work.

Giovanni Hidalgo
Thank you for your talent and hard work.

I had the opportunity to grow up in a household in which my father played the Congas. I was always fascinated with the seemingly ease at which he could play along with the different kinds of music. And, he had his own rhythms and music that he created, when playing solo or with other friends that were musically talented as well. So naturally, as I liked music, I aspired to eventually play the Congas like my Dad did. When I purchased my first Conga, then later a second, to make it a set, while I was able to somewhat play a salsa beat, I was far from playing with speed, coordination and accuracy. While at the local music store, I saw a video by Giovanni Hidalgo designed to help someone learn to play the different rhythms of the Conga. I purchased that and spent a lot of time learning from the master Giovanni how to play the Conga, and what was possible. My hand speed increased, my practices became more focused, things I didn't think were possible, I was beginning to be able to execute on the Conga. Giovanni's example and teaching style had a strong influence on helping me believe what was possible on the drum, and to actually execute on it. Later I realized how at the top of the class Giovanni actually is with Conga players.. He is a true Conga master and legendary in how he plays, but not only playing style and hand speed, but also for the level of teaching style as well. Thank you Giovanni for all of your contributions.
