Ryan Tedder

What are you listening to? I couple of years ago I’ve noticed that most of the songs I really liked turned out to be those of One Republic or written by Ryan Tedder. And it’s still true. I have “Everybody loves me” on repeat in my MP3 player. There are also “Secrets” (even though the song is pretty old) and “Good life”. So I figured how about I write a little something about him: some facts from his biography.

Ryan Benjamin Tedder.

Ryan was born in 1979, in Tulsa, Oklahoma (by the way, it is the city Chandler from “Friends” worked in before he quit 🙂 ). He was raised in the family of missionaries and pastors.

His father started teaching him to play the piano at the age of tree, using Suzuki method (I’d call it “the candy encouragement”). Ryan started singing without any pressure. He was 7 by then and he was copying his favorite singers – Sting, Peter Gabriel, Steve Wonder, etc.

Perfect Girlfriend for You

Have you ever thought about who is an ideal girl for you personally? There should be one in this world that could fit you perfectly despite the fact that she may also have some minor shortcomings you find cute. Let us figure out what kind of virtues we would like to see in our women.

  • The ability to understand you from the first time. She would not ask you several times why you don’t take her to hang out with your friends. She understands that sometimes you just need to be with your guys so that you can relax and have fun. She won’t arrange a fight because some girl wrote you a comment on your Facebook page as she probably guesses that it doesn’t really matter to you.

The Most Surprising Museums

  • The museum of music in Austria. This museum has nothing in common with the boring traditional ones with huge rooms and murmuring guides. The multimedia musical space occupies five stores and I swear that you’ll be sorry for the end of the exhibition when you reach the fifth one. These exposition looks like a fairy-tale castle. The one room if full of the enormous musical instruments for the viewers to see how they produce different sounds, the other one is a big touch screen which will plunge you into the magic world of the synthetic artificial sounds.The fantastic model of a human ear the hundreds times larger than the natural one gives visitors the possibility to step inside and understand how they function. One may try to become a conductor for an hour and perform together with The Vienna Symphonic Orchestra or to make his or her own record. The most interesting attraction is navigating a space ship. The better you manipulate it the more harmony there is in the music you hear in your headphones.

Pineapple benefits for your body

Pineapple is definitely a tasty fruit we all love to eat from day to day to refresh and to quench thirst. But we don’t even notice that a pineapple is a lot more than a delicious fruit. Actually it’s greatly beneficial. Once an exotic fruit and today pretty much available it is now consumed regularly as a self contained dessert, a cocktail basis and as a good filling for cakes, pies, salads, pizzas and even burgers.

First, let us examine its composition which is in fact astonishing for having so many useful ingredients. A pineapple contains almost all necessary vitamins: C, PP, B1, B2, B12. Vital mineral ingredients are also over the top, for example, K, Zn, Fe, I, Mn and so on. And the most important thing in a pineapple is bromeline, an extremely advantageous ferment which is able to break down proteins and produces an antiphlogistic effect on the body.

Top 5 gaudy celebs

Watching the last Oscar ceremony I had mixed feelings, frankly speaking. I know that all women watch this “red carpet” stuff to see the dresses and the suits. Admit it! So…watching this TV version of the ceremony I came to a conclusion that some celebs call for a sincere admiration gasp and others leave you at a loss…All these things made me interested in various ratings, among which I was looking for the ones that enlist all the most gaudy celebrities. All in all, I got an impression there are certain famous people who will never be forgotten even failing only once. Here they are – the celebs with theworst clothing tastes)

1). Olsen twins. (I know, I know, there are two of them, but they are not divided into two parts, so…). Though these two girls had really high popularity rates and they have their own fashion line named “The Row”, nobody seems to be in love with their style containing baggy skirts, flat hats and way too funny brats. Too bad for them!

The funniest urban legends ever!

When I was a little girl I was captivated and terrified by urban legends told me by my elder brother Jeremy. I believed that everything described in the legends was true. The stories he told me were very convincing and interesting. I was all ears. My elder brother made me believe in it persuading me that this or that story happened to his friends or people he had known well. I liked it and at the same time it was very scary for me to listen to all this creepy stuff. Later I realized that he was kidding me trying to make an impression on little silly girl.

Then when I was fifteen or so I came across an article on urban legends and found out that some of these creepy stories were real. It shocked me because some of them were really terrible and disgusting.
