Facebook Mastodon’s Brent Hinds Post Tour: “I Need To Decompress From All This” Mastodon’s Brent Hinds: “I Need To Decompress” mastodons-brent-hinds-post-tour-i-need-decompress-all Twitter Email The metal guitarist reveals he is burnt out from the demands of constant touringAna YglesiasGRAMMYs Sep 6, 2018 – 4:16 pm Brent Hinds, the guitarist of the GRAMMY-winning metal band Mastodon, recently spoke out about how constant touring is wearing him thin and making him feel like he needs some time off to breathe.When “Let There Be Talk” podcast host Dean Delray asked Hinds in an interview last month if Mastodon is working on a new album, Hinds explains that he really needs some time off. He tells the host he’s really feeling run dry by the constant touring schedule and needs a break before he can make music again.”All I care about is my peace of mind, which is leaving me,” Hinds said. “So I need to stop and recalculate myself. I need to decompress from all this and I need to press the restart button and just kind of reboot myself in a way.”With mental health and self-care becoming more openly addressed in today’s music world, other artists have also discussed the demands of working in the music industry, especially the challenges that come with touring. Notably, James Blake has spoken up about dealing with depression while touring. Also, before his tragic suicide, Avicii famously retired from touring, sharing that the demanding schedule of constant shows was directly affecting his health.“It’ll be okay. I can still play music. If people want me to play good music, they need to let me go for a year,” Hinds continues in the interview.

And, as his bandmate Brann Dailor shared, their latest album Emperor of Sand came out of a time when they were all going through challenging times in their lives, showing that making music can indeed be a therapeutic process.”Some of the closest people to us were in the middle of some battles with cancer and some heavy-duty illness,” Dailor said. “If we were open and honest with everyone about what the record was about, then we knew that it could maybe have a positive impact with someone else.”Mastodon Reach New Levels Of Heavy On ‘Emperor Of Sand

Walt Disney Pictures Monsters Inc. fans have more than just the Super Bowl to enjoy on Sunday.Since it’s Feb. 3, 2019, fans of the Pixar film were quick to that the date correlates to the code 2319, a number that leads to a sequence in a hilarious scene from the 2001 film.As pointed out by CNET sister site ComicBook.com, the scene in question involves the monster George (Sam Black), who gets an unexpected haircut as a result of getting a child’s sock stuck on his gloriously orange fur. At this point in the film, monsters think children are toxic, making the sock a big issue code-named 2319. 3:02 HAPPY #2319Day #redalert #MonstersInc pic.twitter.com/MeO0cp38HD— Bring your own Geek (@Bringyourowngek) February 3, 2019 39 Photos I think i’m funny #2319Day #SuperBowl pic.twitter.com/MaNCKxwHxU— Chloseph (@ChlosterSays) February 3, 2019 3 Happy 2319 Day!!@WaltDisneyWorld @Disney @DisneyPixar @WaltDisneyCo @MonstersU #2319Day pic.twitter.com/ZdwQG2JcFH— Brad Fowler 🇺🇸 (@BradFowler11) February 3, 2019 Hidden details of Toy Story Land TV and Movies And a costumed one, too.

Ronaldo has made big contributions to charity before as wellMARCO BERTORELLO/AFP/Getty ImagesCristiano Ronaldo may have many Golden Boots but he also has a golden heart, it seems. The Portuguese superstar won many hearts around the world when it was announced that he has donated $1.5 million to Palestinians for the observance of the Ramadan – the holy month of the year when Muslims fast all day and break it in the evening with the meal of Iftar.CR7, as he has come to be known around the world, is not trying to help the people of Palestine for the first time. In 2012, the superstar auctioned the Golden Boot he won the previous year to raise 1.5 million Euros for helping the children of Gaza gain proper education. On other occasions too, he showed his sympathies for the people of Palestinian lands in different ways.However, in 2016, ironically, the superstar found himself embroiled in a controversy after starring in an advertisement for an Israeli internet service providing company. Many people, including his fans having sympathy for the Palestinian cause, criticised the Juventus star for having aligned himself with a company operating from a country that they regard as being in illegal occupation of a part of West Asia. Ronaldo has been sympathetic to the plight of PalestiniansREUTERS/Massimo PincaRonaldo’s imageBut now, the views are likely to change. Ronaldo has always been known as a philanthropist who likes to donate money for noble causes. In the past, he has made monetary contributions to aid the rehabilitation works in certain areas affected by natural disasters. He was even chosen by the organisation Save the Children as their brand ambassador.The Portuguese icon was named “World’s Most Charitable Sportsperson” – a title that he hasn’t failed to live up to. In some ways, his endorsing an Israeli brand can be seen as a clever move. By doing that, he was able to ward off the charges of being anti-Israel.The Israel-Palestinian issue has been troublesome and has caused problem to sports authorities. All those who have decided to take a stand on it, either way, have faced both criticism as well as praise. But donating money to people of an impoverished nation for having a good observance of their religious rituals is not something anyone will object to.
