From Radio to Online Guitar Lessons

  • Posted on October 8, 2015 at 6:37 pm

I can remember when it was the summer of 2000, more than 11 years ago at the moment of writing. The radio was on, but on such a volume that I could actually ignore it. But I probably would have ignored it anyway since I just received my guitar. Can’t recall the brand or type but it was a rather cheap instrument. I had a little bit of experience. With a little bit I mean that I had 2 or 3 guitar lessons at the age of 8. So I could barely read the tabs. One moment I was fully focused on my guitar but a moment later I totally forgot all about the guitar. Even forgot that I was trying to make music. Because this was when I first heard Californication by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The DJ announced a new single by the band from Los Angeles. The first notes reached my ears and I was estatic. I just sat there with the guitar on my lap, enjoying every single second of the 5 minutes the song. Once the song ended I regretted that I stopped my guitar course. But I also became motivated, very motivated. Because the only thing I could think of at that moment was that I have to master my instrument. I wanted to be able to play this song so badly that must have practiced for the entire afternoon. Although I have to admit, it was worth it. For a couple of hours I was a rockstar- in my head atleast. My roommates thought otherwise unfortunately. About 9 to 10 years went by without playing my guitar. But then, approximately 2 years ago, I was driving my car. It was May, a very beautiful day in Spring. The sun shone for the first time in the past months and I have to admit, I felt good. And it only would get better, because the DJ on the radio anounced Californication by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Somehow I hadn’t heard it for a while, probably 3 years. The only thing I knew

Days Of Our Lives Actor Goes Green With Urth Solution

  • Posted on October 7, 2015 at 6:13 am

Days of Our Lives’ James Scott has recently joined the bandwagon of spokespersons for earth-friendly campaigns and organizations. The 28-year-old actor is actually a co-founder of Urth Solution, an organization aimed at helping developing countries capitalize on their natural resources without damaging the environment. He has been all around the world to communicate with these countries in behalf of Urth Solutions.

“I was thinking about doing something like this for a few years,” Scott said in a conversation with Soap Opera Digest. “It’s good to carry some sort of certification of being Green. I thought I’d try and find a company that would help communities in resource-rich areas to be able to harness those resources in a sustainable way then sell them for a premium to the West. It’s basically about helping communities help themselves. ‘Trade not aid.'”

James Scott, who plays EJ Wells on Days of Our Lives, was proud to say that Urth Solution was very well received, having been established a year ago.

The beaming actor said, “Urth Solution helps communities in developing countries find ways to address social, environmental and humanitarian issues.”

Scott recently flew to Bolivia to represent the company and help a community richly blessed with gold. Scott told Soap Opera Digest that they would like to teach the community how to extract the precious element without hurting the environment.

“We’re investing in a program to help the residents of that community mine the gold in an environmentally sustainable way, so that we can generate profits for the community,” James Scott explained.

Urth Solutions has also been to Madagascar, where they have a current project. They also plan to expand their outreach even further.

“I’m going to Mongolia in September,” Scott said to Soap Opera Digest. “I have been asked by World Bank to go and give a small presentation on my company, which they see as being a fairly good model for progressive businesses.”
