After The Chainsmokers’ breakout single, “#Selfie,” entered the cultural zeitgeist, founding member, Alex Pall, and more recent addition, Andrew Taggart, have been looking for ways to reinvent electronic music. In “Closer,” The Chainsmokers’ new single, the group believes that interweaving their personalities with their music just might be the key.
When deciding where to go with their next album, Pall and Taggart took a step back and examined the world of electronic music. They noticed that every artist in their genre hid behind some mask or DJ booth. Finding this boring and stale, they turned to their favorite genre of music from childhood: emo. They quickly became infatuated with how these artist were upfront and personal with their audiences. So, Pall and Taggart decided to take a page out of the emo genre instead. They would do something that no other DJ was doing: write songs about their lives and sing them too.
Soon they began writing and releasing songs like “Roses” and “Don’t Let Me Down.” These songs put the emo aesthetic–personal, upfront, emotional songwriting, sung by a member of the band–into the electronic genre. Both songs quickly became hits, and The Chainsmokers were getting even more public attention. Pall’s new strategy was working.
Their new single, “Closer,” continues in this innovative style of song writing. This song tells the story of hooking up with an old ex-girlfriend and how quickly that experience can turn sour. In a way, the song plays as a twisted duet. Taggart sings the male vocals and Halsey–an artist Pall wanted because she is so definitively herself–sings the female vocals.
And “Closer” is just part of a new album The Chainsmokers are working on. Once again distancing themselves from their genre, they hope to tell a complete story on their next major release. Pall is working to release a collection of songs that continue to stay fresh. Because that’s the only way to stay on top.
Doe Deere was recently in a very interesting article on Inspirely.com. She is the founder of the ultra-famous beauty brand, Lime Crime. While Lime Crime has been in existence for a mere decade, the company has managed to evolve from a startup to a massive makeup company that is found in boutique beauty stores and sells millions of products online. The article focused on everything from the founding of Lime Crime to an advice portion where she gives advice to other people who aspire to follow their true calling and build companies like she did with Lime Crime. The story of Lime Crime is pretty amazing and one of the big themes I pulled from it and from past articles with Doe Deere is to find your life’s passion and never be afraid to follow your dreams and make it happen. She believes that we all have one true calling and sometimes fear stops us from accomplishing it. She is living proof that by following your passion, you can really make your dreams come true.
First and foremost is a stunning picture of Doe Deere that includes her holding a miniature doll of herself. The doll and Doe both have her signature blue hair and bright red lips. She is originally from Russia and incredibly fair skinned. So much so, that she literally looks like a doll herself. She is known for her signature brightly colored hair that has been every shade from blue to pink to a gorgeous platinum blonde.
She tells the incredible story of Lime Crime and how is came into development several years ago. She said that she had always wanted to be in the world of fashion. She has designed her own clothing since she was younger. She also tells a story of designing clothing at a very young age to have a dress-up element for a game that she and her friends were playing at the time.
While in fashion school, Doe Deere began to question her role in the world of fashion. Something was nagging her that made her think it wasn’t what she was meant to do; it wasn’t what her soul was calling her to do. She initially began creating makeup for her own needs. She has always been a fan of extremely bright colors. However, it was the era when nude makeup was popular and she could never find the shades she wanted in the type of quality that she wanted. So, she simply created her own line of makeup. In the article, she says that designing makeup felt like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That is when she decided to make Lime Crime a makeup brand instead of a fashion brand.
Lime Crime quickly took off thanks to the help of her unique marketing through online video tutorials. People loved the makeup and loved the fact that it was vegan-friendly and cruelty-free. She quickly built up a huge customer base and the rest is history.

In today’s world, there is such a thing as good power and bad power. When bad power is out there, it is a very dangerous thing for the world. It allows people to run wild, and they have no regard for how their actions are going to affect or alter someone else along the way. For Bob Reina, he has the good kind of power. He has the kind of power that inspires people to do more and to be more in their lives. This is not something he takes lightly. It is something he puts his all into it as a human being and as the CEO and founder of Talk Fusion. He knows he can do more, and he wants to do more.
However, there is an expression that applies to this situation, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t force it to drink.” That is how Bob Reina believes in life and business as well. He is a firm believer that you can push someone to do the right thing and show them the way, but it is up to them to do the work and to do it the right way. They have to work hard, put in the hours, and push themselves to be great. It is the only way they are going to succeed in life. They can’t expect things to come easily to them. There is not a single thing in life that is easy. Learn more: http://bobreina.com/
After all, if something were easy, it would not mean as much in the long run. It means a lot more when people earn it and do it the right way. That is how Bob Reina likes it. It is very satisfying when people see what they are made of and what they can do as human beings. It is one of the most powerful feelings in the world. They might be tired, feel weak, exhausted, and like they can’t do anything else. They might feel like they have done all they can and they have left it all on the line.
When that do that, they might not see immediate results, but they will see results sooner rather than later. It is a tremendous feeling for people all across the world. Bob Reina wants people to use Talk Fusion and use their video newsletters, video emails, video conferences, and video chats to really utilize all of their special skills and talents that are out there for the world to see. He wants people to shine and in turn, he wants them to use their power for something positive and something good like he has throughout his entire life. It’s a great feeling one would imagine.
