Song |Keane | Disconnected
I first discovered Keane back in 1997. Since moving to Canada in 1993 I have always continued to source new music from the UK and fortunately I stumbled upon Keane. The group comprises of Tom Chaplin, Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes and the newest member, Jesse Quin. Their unique style uses the piano as a lead instrument instead of the traditional guitar, so you could say they are a piano rock band. While everyone raves about Coldplay, Keane has always been my favorite. “Disconnected” is a great, catchy song from their Strangeland album. It has a great video. Hopefully it gets your interest and you’ll check out their other albums and videos online.

Tim Ferriss is a start-up angel investor, blogger, and entrepreneur. Born in Southampton, New York, on July 20, 1977, Tim Ferriss received a degree in East Asian Studies from Princeton University in 2000. As a Princeton student, Ferriss made his first foray into publishing with the audiobook How I Beat the Ivy League and took on a number of occupations, including speed-reading instruction and Chinese kickboxing, before graduating from Princeton in 2000 with a focus on East Asian studies. He then moved to the San Francisco area to work in sales for a Silicon Valley start-up at a data storage company, but soon began spending his time building his own internet business while still employed at the company. He founded his own nutrition supplement company, BrainQuicken. He also became a globetrotter, ending up in Argentina where he took up the tango. In 2006, he entered the Guinness World Records for the most tango spins in one minute—37—with his dancing partner Alicia Monti.
In 2007, he released his book The 4-Hour Workweek, published by Crown, a division of Random House. The book was a major hit, becoming a No. 1 New York Times best seller and remaining on the list for years while being translated into multiple languages. In 2010, Ferriss released The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman, which also went to the top of the Times best-seller list.

He has become an in-demand speaker and has appeared on a number of media-generated lists as an innovative businessman and promoter. Ferriss has also served on the faculty at Singularity University, an institution that studies new technologies. In 2012 Ferris released The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life.
