Why Do We Love?

(DL) – It's been said that love is patient, kind... blah blah blah. Love is many things, ultimately love is a hard word. It's hard to come by, hard to find, hard to accept, hard to follow  ...it's hard! A hard word is hard to define. A word such as love begs the great question of why do we love?

It's important as we begin this excercise you accept that love is love, it's not desire. It's not something that makes you feel close to one person emotionally and desire another sexually. The love here is true love. The love that if you get it right – you will never leave that person. What inside of us makes us want a love like that?

The shortest answer is we love that we may be loved. Seems like a cruel answer. It reads like some smart ass didn't want to give a better explaination, all you need is clarity to the statement. There are reasons. Before they are given let's identify the common thread through them all. After all, anthropologist Hellen Fisher, author of Why We Love answers this question based on instinctive brain systems. She breaks down the anatomy. For Hellen the answer to why we love is stated as the presence of motivation, there is a craving, there is obsession. But let's not call love something we are motivated to do, or crave or obsess over. The real question is why do we crave, why do we obsess? What is it that love makes us so motivated. Here are the answers to why we love from an entirely different point-of-view. Why do we love?

(DL) – This article is the first in a series for beginner paintball players. Here we begin with the true first time paintball experience. We will begin with your first experience. Take what you learn here to your first game of paintball and return to read more when you know you have an interest in learning how to play paintball better.

Before we begin let me warn you. If you have not ever played paintball you are about to have the most memorable day of paintball in your paintball career. No future experience in the sport may ever be as fun as your first time at paintball.
Paintball Player with hit on maskPAINTBALL IS NOT AN EXCLUSIVE CLUB

Paintball is not a complicated sport. I've always maintained, it's not the gun - it's the shooter. You are going to find out quick in a hurry, you are not out-gunned on the paintball field. The ability to shoot lies in the hands of anyone. 

Anyone.

Tall, short, skinny, fat, young, old, male, female - no one can outrun a paintball. This should tell you that you are not going out on your first day to get trounced. 

So many of us are intimidated by what we see before we play.  Search Youtube and you'll find high-speed games, and well-equipped players talking in lingo that makes you feel like you could never belong. Don't expect to encounter these players on your first day of paintball.  Stay with me as I ease you into a world that you will not only be excited to be a part of, but you will find you do belong.

How To: Throw A Party On A Budget

(DL) – Hello, (another) Emilie here with some tips on how to host on the cheap.

Whether you are a college student, a struggling 20 or 30-something, or just looking to entertain without depleting your account there are plenty of ways to throw a cocktail or dinner party that is impressive but not expensive.

The Food

What’s a party without some hors d'oeuvres ? If you’re looking to branch out from the usual chips and dip, try crostini. A crostini is a fancy way of saying “toasted bread with a topping”. You can get a baguette for no more than 2 dollars at your local market. Be sure to get a good quality and more importantly, fresh bread. It makes all the difference and your guests will appreciate not biting into something stale.

Now that you have your bread, what to top it with? You can go the traditional route with a tomato and basil based bruschetta, or you can mix it up with some of these recipes.

Crostini with Zucchini & Feta

Serves 4
5 very small zucchini or squash
Zest and juice of one lemon, plus more juice to taste
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup crumbled feta
1/2 cup packed parsley leaves, or 1/4 cup thinly sliced mint or basil
1 baguette, sliced into thin rounds and toasted

(complete recipe - ingredients &  preparation instructions)

Firefly Music Festival: The Fan Experience

(DL) – I am from Delaware. If anyone knows, it's me – Delaware is not a destination. It's a starting point. Everywhere is within driving distance, mountains, beach, the nation's capital, Philly events, NYC entertainment. None of which are in Delaware. Enter, Firefly – a three day music festival. It includes big name bands to headline like 2012's Killers and The Black Keys to 2013's Tom Petty and Foster the People. Firefly has a genuine interest in bands about to break like 2013's Capital Cities or 2012's Fitz & the Tantrums and Modest MousePassion Pit makes an encore performance to the festival's main stage.


EDM (Electronic Dance Music) makes a bigger play in 2013 at Firefly drawing not only the hipster crowd but more of the introverted at home closet dance hounds. Put them in front of Big Gigantic, Calvin Harris, Zed and White Panda and they too exploded in dance energy bouncing up and down along in a sea of people tossing beach balls, glow sticks and blow-up dolls. By the time Saturday hit MGMT's pop sound was bound to draw a huge crowd.


Sunday, Matt and Kim worked the crowd like any other Matt and Kim gig, tossing balloons into the crowd with Kim standing on her drum kit. Although she's chilled a bit after injuring herself previously. True story, they are as positive energy off stage as on. I met them last year in Philly at a gig at the Electric Factory. Kim gave me relationship advice I've used ever since. They are a high energy duo and the crowd fed off their energy on a hot Sunday afternoon.


The festival grounds known as The Woodlands is home to four stages separated by wood lined malls. It's got a somewhat cozy feel but the tall chain linked fences remind you of the business end of the festival experience. You won't be sneaking in to beat the $300 three day ticket price. You wear a bracelet that is digitally scanned for entry. Scratch the bar-code and management is relentless on this rule – you pay $20 to replace it after they confirm your original registration. 

Hammock HangoutThe fun starts at the gate. Everyone picks up the pace as the music nears. The huge banner, FIREFLY on a soft green backdrop with golden lights draws you in like a mindless bug. It's the same feeling you had as a child wanting to race in to be the first on the ride at an amusement park.

DowntimeFirefly's unique appeal is its accessibility. An even better word may be inclusivity. Yes it draws college students that want to cut loose, but even the college students I came across kept the partying in check. It draws a young at heart crowd but regardless of age a noticeable thumbprint of the typical Firefly attendee is they are positive and kind. This is no loose observation....Read more...
