Home Theater Furniture & SeatingWritten by Matthew Seigneur
Home theater seating can vary widely and depends on experience you want and your budget. You can make do with folding chairs or that garage sale sofa, but better your seating is better your home theater experience will be.
The first thing to think about is how many people your home theater will host for viewing on a regular basis. It isn't economical to get twice as many seats as you will regularly have guests, but neither is it wise to short yourself on seating that you will have use for. Also think about space you have in your home theater. This will effect what sort of home theater seating will be best for your space.
The next thing to think about is how much use your home theater will see. If it will see frequent use, you will want seating that is ergonomic, as well as made of durable materials that are easy to clean. Ergonomic seating is important so that viewers do not get any sort of strain or aches during viewing. If you do not plan to use your home theater frequently you can choose seating that isn't as comfortable or as durable or easy to clean, but keep in mind that this sort of seating may not be worth it in long run.
Also think about what you want your home theater to look like. If you want it to look like a regular movie theater in miniature, then you will most likely prefer home theater seating that closely emulates that found in a regular theater. Alternately, if you wish to have more of a 'honey' look, you may wish to go with seating that is more like traditional armchairs.
How Has Eminem Risen to the Top?Written by Jeff Schuman II
How is it that a little white boy from Kansas City has become most well known rapper in world? Starting from nothing and eventually moving up to a multi-millionaire, Eminem over past seven years has been in eye of public everywhere you look. He has essentially entered a black man’s business and gone to top over course of a few years, but how?
On October 17, 1972 Marshall Bruce Mathers III was born in St. Joseph, MO by his 15 year old mother Debbie. Six months later his father was gone and this began struggle for Marshall and his mother; one that was just beginning. Throughout course of his childhood Marshall and his mother moved numerous times into different houses from Kansas City to Detroit. The maximum time spent in one house was only 3 months, which caused Marshall to attend many different schools making it difficult to cope to different surroundings and make friends. Every new school he attended he was bullied as he was new kid. This was something that he could not change as he was never stationed in one school for a long period of time. At age of 12 he and his mother finally settled in a house in Detroit. He would later use bullying to his advantage fueling him to get back at all his bullies through songs.
By age of 4 Marshall was already beginning to rap and put words together rhyming them. At school he was rather successful considering circumstances, but it was lunchtime that he enjoyed as he often battled schoolmates through freestyles. At age of 14 Marshall began to get serious about rapping and felt that he had a shot in business. When he got to ninth grade he failed it three times before eventually dropping out as he felt school was not for him.
When he turned 17 he came up with name M&M for himself by combining first letters of his first and last name, which later was changed to Eminem. Now that he didn’t have school as a distraction, he focused solely on rapping with goal of making it to top. He faced constant struggle on way to stardom as he was continuously rejected by most rappers because of his race, despite his true talent. This grew anger inside of him that he uses in his music today. Knowing that it wasn’t going to be easy and that he would have to work, Marshall forced himself onto radio shows and freestyle battles to prove everybody wrong. He eventually got a first album titled “Infinite”, but it only sold 1,000 copies. It wasn’t until 1997 that Marshall would make a name for himself.
