CROSS PICTURE MODULATION - GIRL

This image is a freeze frame taken from video that was shot by Linden Hudson (amateur photographer). This is a composite effect or as a sound engineer (Linden) might say: "cross modulation". 2 photos effecting each other. Just having fun.

Who is Linden Hudson?

CLASSICBANDS DOT COM said: “According to former roadie David Blayney in his book SHARP DRESSED MEN: sound engineer Linden Hudson co-wrote much of the material on the ZZ Top ELIMINATOR album.” (end quote)(The album was nominated for a grammy and sold 20 million copies.)

(ZZ Top never opted to give Linden credit, which would have been THE decent thing to do. It would have helped Linden’s career as well. The band and management worked ruthlessly to take FULL credit for the hugely successful album which Linden had spent a good deal of time working on. Linden works daily to tell this story. Also, the band did not opt to pay Linden, they worked to keep all the money and they treated Linden like dirt. It was abuse. Linden launched a limited lawsuit, brought about using his limited resources which brought limited results and took years. No one should treat the co-writer of their most successful album like this. It’s just deeply sick.)

LICKLIBRARY DOT COM (2013 Billy Gibbons interview) ZZ TOP’S BILLY GIBBONS FINALLY ADMITTED: “the Eliminator sessions in 1983 were guided largely by another one of our associates, Linden Hudson, a gifted engineer, during the development of those compositions.” (end quote) (Gibbons admits this after 30 years, but offers Linden no apology or reparations for lack of credit/royalties)
+++
MUSICRADAR DOT COM (2013 interview with ZZ Top’s guitarist Billy Gibbons broke 30 years of silence about Linden Hudson introducing synthesizers into ZZ Top’s sound.) Gibbons said: “This was a really interesting turning point. We had befriended somebody who would become an influential associate, a guy named Linden Hudson. He was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing, starting in the studio and eventually to the live stage. Linden had no fear and was eager to experiment in ways that would frighten most bands. But we followed suit, and the synthesizers started to show up on record.” (once again, there was no apology from ZZ Top or Billy Gibbons after this revelation).
+++
TEXAS MONTHLY MAGAZINE (Dec 1996, By Joe Nick Patoski): "Linden Hudson floated the notion that the ideal dance music had 124 beats per minute; then he and Gibbons conceived, wrote, and recorded what amounted to a rough draft of an album before the band had set foot inside Ardent Studios."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By David Blayney) : "Probably the most dramatic development in ZZ Top recording approaches came about as Eliminator was constructed. What had gone on before evolutionary; this change was revolutionary. ZZ Top got what amounted to a new bandsman (Linden) for the album, unknown to the world at large and at first even to Dusty and Frank."
+++
CNET DOT COM: (question posed to ZZ Top): Sound engineer Linden Hudson was described as a high-tech music teacher on your highly successful "Eliminator" album. How much did the band experiment with electronic instruments prior to that album?
+++
THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE, MARCH 2018: "Eliminator" had a tremendous impact on us and the people who listen to us," says ZZ Top’s bass player. Common band lore points to production engineer Linden Hudson suggesting that 120 beats per minute was the perfect rock tempo, or "the people’s tempo" as it came to be known.
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by David Blayney: (page 227): "…the song LEGS Linden Hudson introduced the pumping synthesizer effect."
+++
(Search Linden Hudson in the various ZZ Top Wikipedia pages which are related to the ELIMINATOR album and you will find bits about Linden. Also the main ZZ Top Wikipedia page mentions Linden. He’s mentioned in at least 7 ZZ Top related Wikipedia pages.)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP By David Blayney: "Linden found himself in the position of being Billy’s (Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top guitarist) closest collaborator on Eliminator. In fact, he wound up spending more time on the album than anybody except Billy. While the two of them spent day after day in the studio, they were mostly alone with the equipment and the ideas."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: BEER DRINKERS & HELL RAISERS: A ZZ TOP GUIDE (By Neil Daniels, released 2014): "Hudson reportedly had a significant role to play during the planning stages of the release (ELIMINATOR)."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE (ROLLING STONE PRESS, WRITTEN BY DEBORAH FROST): "Linden was always doing computer studies. It was something that fascinated him, like studio technology. He thought he might understand the components of popular songs better if he fed certain data into his computer. It might help him understand what hits (song releases) of any given period share. He first found out about speed; all the songs he studied deviated no more than one beat from 120 beats per minute. Billy immediately started to write some songs with 120 beats per minute. Linden helped out with a couple, like UNDER PRESSURE and SHARP DRESSED MAN. Someone had to help Billy out. Dusty and Frank didn’t even like to rehearse much. Their studio absence wasn’t really a problem though. The bass and drum parts were easily played with a synthesizer or Linn drum machine." (end quote)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "After his quantitative revelations, Linden informally but instantly became ZZ Top’s rehearsal hall theoretician, producer, and engineer." (end quote)
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST): "With the release of their ninth album, ELIMINATOR, in 1983, these hairy, unlikely rock heroes had become a pop phenomenon. This had something to do with the discoveries of a young preproduction engineer (Linden Hudson) whose contributions, like those of many associated with the band over the years, were never acknowledged."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP (By DAVID BLAYNEY) : "The integral position Linden occupied in the process of building El​iminator was demonstrated eloquently in the case of song Under Pressure. Billy and Linden, the studio wizards, did the whole song all in one afternoon without either the bass player or drummer even knowing it had been written and recorded on a demo tape. Linden synthesized the bass and drums and helped write the lyrics; Billy did the guitars and vocals."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "TRES HOMBRES – THE STORY OF ZZ TOP" BY DAVID SINCLAIR (Writer for the Times Of London): "Linden Hudson, the engineer/producer who lived at Beard’s house (ZZ’s drummer) had drawn their attention to the possibilities of the new recording technology and specifically to the charms of the straight drumming pattern, as used on a programmed drum machine. On ELIMINATOR ZZ Top unveiled a simple new musical combination that cracked open a vast worldwide market.
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESS MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "ELIMINATOR went on to become a multi-platinum album, just as Linden had predicted when he and Billy were setting up the 124-beat tempos and arranging all the material. Rolling Stone eventually picked the album as number 39 out of the top 100 of the 80’s. Linden Hudson in a fair world shoud have had his name all over ELIMINATOR and gotten the just compensation he deserved. Instead he got ostracized."
+++
FROM THE BOOK: ​SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP by DAVID BLAYNEY: "He (Linden) went back with the boys to 1970 when he was working as a radio disc jocky aliased Jack Smack. He was emcee for a show ZZ did around that time, and even sang an encore tune with the band, perhaps the only person ever to have that honor." (side note: this was ZZ Top’s very first show).
+++
FROM THE BOOK: "SHARP DRESSED MEN – ZZ TOP" BY DAVID BLAYNEY: "Linden remained at Frank’s (ZZ Top drummer) place as ZZ’s live-in engineer throughout the whole period of ELIMINATOR rehearsals, and was like one of the family… as he (Linden) worked at the controls day after day, watching the album (ELIMINATOR) take shape, his hopes for a big step forward in his production career undoubtably soared. ELIMINATOR marked the first time that ZZ Top was able to rehearse an entire album with the recording studio gadgetry that Billy so loved. With Linden Hudson around all the time, it also was the first time the band could write, rehearse, and record with someone who knew the men and the machines. ZZ Top was free to go musically crazy, but also musically crazy like a fox. Linden made that possible too."
+++
FROM THE BOOK "ZZ TOP – BAD AND WORLDWIDE" (ROLLING STONE PRESS, BY DEBORAH FROST, WRITER FOR ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE): "… SHARP DRESSED MAN which employed Hudson’s 120 beat-per-minute theory. The feel, the enthusiasm, the snappy beat and crisp clean sound propelled ELIMINATOR into the ears and hearts of 5 million people who previously could have cared less about the boogie band of RIO GRANDE MUD."
+++
THE GREATEST ROCK REBRAND OF ALL TIME (by Jason Miller): "Sound engineer Linden Hudson researched the tempos at which the most popular rock tracks in the charts had been recorded. His data showed that there was something very special about 120 beats to a minute. Gibbons decided to record pretty much the whole of ZZ Top’s new album at that tempo. The result? 1983’s Eliminator. It was named after Gibbons’ Ford Coupé; it had been created through a unique combination of creative collaboration and data mining. And it was about to take the world by storm."
+++
ULTIMATECLASSICROCK DOT COM: "This new melding of styles was encouraged by Hudson, who served as a kind of pre-producer for ​EL LOCO … … Hudson helped construct ZZ Top drummer Frank Beard’s home studio, and had lived with him for a time. That led to these initial sessions, and then a closer collaboration on 1983’s ​ELIMINATOR.
+++
FIREDOGLAKE DOT COM: "I like Billy Gibbons’ guitar tone quite a lot, but I lost all respect for them after reading how badly they fucked over Linden Hudson (the guy who was the brains behind their move to include synthesizers and co-wrote most of their career-defining Eliminator record)."
+++
EMAIL FROM A ZZ TOP FAN TO LINDEN (One Of Many): "I write you today about broken hearts, one is mine and one is for you. I have been a ZZ Top fan since I was 6 years old. I purchased ELIMINATOR vinyl from Caldors in Connecticut with the $20 my grandma gave me for my birthday. I will spare the #1 fan epic saga of tee shirts, harassing Noreen at the fan club via phone weekly for years, over 40 shows attended. Posters, non stop conversation about the time I have spent idolizing this band, but more Billy G, as he has seemed to break free of the Lone Wolf shackles and it became more clear this was his baby. In baseball I was Don Mattingly’s #1 fan, Hershel Walker in football, Billy Gibbons in music. What do these individuals have in common? They were role models. Not a DUI, not a spousal abuse, not a drug overdose, not a cheater. Until I read your web page. I read Blayney’s book around 1992 or so, I was in middle school and I was familiar with your name for a long time. I didn’t realize you suffered so greatly or that your involvement was so significant. It pains me to learn my idol not only cheated but did something so wrong to another being. I now know this is where tall tales and fun loving bullshit and poor morals and ethics are distinguished and where I would no longer consider myself to look up to Billy. I love to joke and I love credit but I have always prided myself on ethics and principles… I hold them dear. I wanted to say, the snippet of UNDER PRESSURE you played sounded very new wave and I may like it more than the finished product. Well that’s all. You have reached ZZ Top’s biggest fan and I can let others know. Bummer. Cheers and good luck. James."​
+++
VINYLSTYLUS DOT COM: Much of Eliminator was recorded at 124bpm, the tempo that considered perfect for dance music by the band’s associate Linden Hudson. An aspiring songwriter, former DJ and – at the time – drummer Frank Beard’s house-sitter, Hudson’s involvement in the recording of the album would come back to haunt them. Despite assisting Gibbons with the pre-production and developing of the material that would end up on both El Loco and Eliminator, his contribution wasn’t credited when either record was released.
+++
INFOMORY DOT COM: ‘Eliminator’ is a studio album of the American rock band ZZ Top. It was released on March 23, 1983 and topped the charts worldwide. Its lyrics were co-written by the band’s sound engineer Linden Hudson while the band denied it.
+++
MUSICMISCELLANEOUS DOT COM: (ELIMINATOR ALBUM):
However, despite the album credits bass-player Dusty Hill and drummer Frank Beard were replaced during the recording process by synthesizers and a drum machine programmed by engineer Linden Hudson, who allegedly co-wrote much of the music with Gibbons despite receiving no credit at the time. Gibbons would later say of Hudson that “he was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing”. Hudson did no less than show the band how to stay relevant in an age where three guys from Texas with long beards (except famously for Frank Beard) and blues licks were one of the last things the contemporary market was demanding.

Antioxidant Drinks & Juice 101 – How These Drinks Reverse the Effects of Harmful Free Radicals

Antioxidant Drinks & Juice 101 – How These Drinks Reverse the Effects of Harmful Free Radicals

Antioxidants are substances that have the natural ability to counter the damage occurring naturally during physiological activities. They are in the form of nutrients and enzymes that engage in precluding the progress of chronic illnesses such as cancer, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, heart problems, rheumatoid arthritis, and cataracts. They help fight the oxidative stress caused by free radicals which are chemically-active molecular fragments containing a deficient number of electrons.

Antioxidants can be derived from solid foods including vegetables and fruits. In a more recent study, Scientists suggested that drinking fresh juice extracted from fruits and raw vegetables can be more effective in supplying antioxidants to our body. Below are just few of the several ways of having nutritive drinks or juices at home:

1.Carrot with apple and egg yolk juice
Carrots are rich in beta-carotene which helps fight cancers and vision-related illnesses. Apples contain the phyto antioxidants which are effective in curing digestive cancers and cardiovascular diseases. They are also good in preventing skin wrinkles. On the other hand, the carotenoid (zeaxanthin and lutein) content in egg yolks may prevent macular degeneration.

How to prepare:

Cut in dices 1 carrot and half of an apple. Along with 1 cup of natural soy milk (unsweetened and unflavored), 1 egg yolk (raw), 1 tablespoon of honey, and 3-9 grams of ginseng (liquid or granulated), mix in a blender.

2.Honey and Bee Pollen drink
Bee pollen has bioflavonoid rutin which strengthens capillaries and arteries and helps in circulation.

How to prepare:

Mix the following ingredients in a tall glass: 1 tablespoon honey, 1 heaped teaspoon bee pollen powder, and 1 cup warm water. Add ginseng extract for an energy booster.

Vegetables like cucumber, celery, radish, and turmeric are also great in fighting the free radicals in our body. They are also tasteful when extracted as juice with the use of a juicer and blender. Instead of honey, bananas can be a good alternative.

Now you want to have more energy, be Healthier, look Younger, lose weight, and cleanse your body, right?

Urban heat island effects

Urban heat island effects

Heat island is defined as an area which is urbanized and hotter than the surrounding rural areas. It is normally experienced when temperatures of an urban area rise beyond the temperatures of the suburban regions as well as the rural regions. A research study showed that in summer, the temperature of the surrounding air in the urban areas would rise between 6 oF to about 8 oF beyond the temperatures of the surrounding rural regions. Most of the activities taking place in the urban areas are the influential factors that affect the climatic conditions of those cities. The causes of urban heat effects include the destruction of natural vegetation due to construction of buildings together with other infrastructures in the urban areas.  Waste heat which are released from the vehicles together with heat being released from factories, other industrial plants and air conditioners. To get broader perspective, contributing factors are discussed below.

Factor contributing to Urban Heat Effects

Anthropogenic sources of heat and pollutions come from the Cities. These cities are characterized by large percentage of dry asphalt and concrete and water proof surface which contain albedoes and capacities of heat which can convert sun radiations in to sensible heat (Stull 609). Urban heat effects are normally steered by three basic mechanisms which include increased heat absorption and storage potential of surfaces; reduced evapotranspiration, and the emission of waste energy in the form of heat from industrial plants (Ruth 318). Destruction of trees and vegetation is one of the causes of urban heat effects. Trees and other vegetation are very important in controlling atmospheric temperature because of their contribution to cooling effects of the surrounding air. If these trees are destroyed, the mechanism for the provision of cooling effect will not take place. The removal of soil and replacement of pavement is also another cause of urban heat. Soil do not absorbs and retain much heat as compared to pavements that have high heat absorption and retention capacity. Due to these properties, urban cities with pavements everywhere will exhibit a rise in temperature as compare to the neighboring rural areas (National Research Council U.S 88)

Urban heat effect may also be caused by human beings themselves because in the previous century only two percent of the total population was in the urban regions but currently there are about twenty five percent of the total populations of the whole world who are residing in towns and cities. In the developed countries with vast industrialized capacity, more than fifty percent of the population lives in town. For instance, in United States of America, a study indicated that human effect in small towns had a significant cause to increase in temperatures. The difference in temperature was noted to be not less than 0.1o C the United States, mean temperatures and the global mean temperatures. This shows that human population affect temperature change both in small towns and big cities. (Michael, 2004).

Another study to determine the rate at which land use causes climatic change as opposed to urbanization gave a result that land use will only contribute to a mean daily temperature increase of 0.35 o C per century which is lower as compared to temperature increase due to Urbanization (Kalnay and Cai (2003).There was also a research to determine on urbanization effects on temperature which has taken place since nineteen century. It indicates that changes in the temperature difference were recorded in different periods from the year1900 to the year 2000. For example, global warming was experienced from the year 1900 to 1940; global cooling was also experienced from the year 1940 to 1965 and another period of global warming was again experienced from 1965 to 2000. City with more than a population of one million people also experiences annual mean temperature of 1o C to 3 o C higher than its surrounding whereas evening temperatures can have a difference of 12o C between city temperatures and the rural areas surrounding it. All these change are dependant on urbanization level (Hansen, Ruedy, Imhoff, Lawrence, Easterling, Peterson, and Carl, 2001).

Cities have microclimate which are linked to surface composition and structures which are found within. There is interdependency between the urban and the atmosphere in the City therefore they should be treated together. An example is the microclimate is the shade effect caused by tall buildings. The building styles together with materials being used are destructive to the traditional designs and practices which adapted to the natural climate. It was noted that three dimension building structure systems absorbs much heat radiations from the sun than two dimension horizontal surface under cloudless condition (Wener and Stellar 181). Other causes of urban include buildings and other materials such as concrete and asphalts which are also found in these cities. They are good absorbers of heat radiation and can store large amounts of heat as compared to natural vegetation found in the surrounding rural regions. A lot of heat is also being released from heating sources and air conditioning machines; power generating plants, industrial plants, vehicles and several heating equipments such iron boxes and cookers. These sources releases bedspread of polluting materials that covers the whole city. These materials are released together with small particles, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide gases and water in the form of vapor among other evaporates. These chemical gases released are the green house gases which are the major cause of global warming.  These gases also act as nuclei for condensation process which will further encourage precipitation. It therefore shows that the cities are not only hot but also experiences continuous precipitation (Michael, 2004). Heavy loads of solid particles, gases and other liquid contaminants that are found in the urban atmosphere are estimated to be ten times more in particulates in the city than in the rural areas. These reflect back incoming solar radiations and also reduces the rate of out flow of heat from the earth atmosphere causing temperature build up (Hough 32)

Effects of Urban Heat Island

When there are high temperatures in the cities, it affects the environment in two different ways. First it perpetuates the development of compounds like smog. This occurs when pollutants in the air are subjected to higher temperatures. The smog is destructive to the environment and also is dangerous to human health. There is also high demand for the cooling as well as air conditioning equipment to solve problems of urban heat Island. This will further affect the consumer through high prices of these equipments. With the increase in number of these air conditioners, there will be a lot of energy required to run these equipment which will finally increase the amount of chemical gases being released into the atmosphere. The cost of high energy and equipment is all transferred to the consumers. It is estimated that about fifteen percent of electric energy consumed in Los Angeles are used to solve the consequences of urban heat island (Mathias, Kieran, & Paul, 2006). No major study on the energy balance climatology has been done with an exception of ration of artificial and natural radiation heat in relation to the solar radiation and pollution of air (Wener 31-53).
