Friday 12 August 

The soundtrack of the day is:
Bon Jovi
28 June 1996, Cologne, Germany 🇩🇪

Müngersdorfer Stadion
🏟️Crossroad/ These Days Tour

What a Friday when you have this amazing new upload on the hAnD90 channel!
A concert which is a serious contender for the best concert Bon Jovi ever gave,
yet was sorely missing on YouTube.

Special praise for the acoustic set, including an uncannily romantic sounding I’d Die For You.

Bootleggers roll your tapes

👩🏼‍💻 the story August 12

I started this series on June 10th;
We did not have this concert to choose from, at the time.
Although the second night did make it as soundtrack of the day.
{archive: The Morning After | 1 July | Bon Jovi 29 June 1996, Cologne, Germany, Müngersdorfer Stadion (second night)

To give a bit of context to the some of the “disturbances in The Force” you may have noticed 😉
A prolific Bon Jovi channel by the name of Bon Jovi Live Concerts (who owns multiple channels now, to avoid tragedies like this happening) was taken down or hacked about five months ago.
This was a bloodletting to the available Bon Jovi content on YouTube, and since then many previously available concerts are no longer online.
You can find the new main channel from Bon Jovi live concerts here.
They will keep you posted on which other channels to follow, as they use multiple accounts to spread any risks.

It is possible that Cologne first night, used to be up on YouTube, pre-tragedy.
It is also possible that hAnD90’s remaster was the first time it got uploaded.
No way to tell!
But we’re happy to have her, so to speak.

I have added it to my “Best Of” list; A public playlist on my channel that is in such a deplorable state that I probably should not have shared it! 😅
One day I expect to make it proper.

Tweet by tweet, DM by DM, and chat by chat, I’m getting to know the background to these uploads and the people who upload them a little bit more.
And this has allowed me to get a whole new level of excitement and admiration when new shows are uploaded;
And new levels of remorse and anger, when things are destroyed.

Bon Jovi as a band has always acknowledged bootleggers, and has honored their presence in their 90s shows.
“Bootleggers roll your tapes!” they said before playing an exclusive.
And their efforts have resulted in an extensive YouTube legacy, where the history of other bands (in particular those who have actively been taking things down) was lost in time.

So Bon Jovi fans and the band as well, definitely got the long end of the stick, and profit to this day from the band’s decision to be “bootleggers inclusive”.
In fact it was so successful, that the term bootlegger, was pretty much lost in time as well!

With the coming of the mobile phone, we all became bootleggers.
Which is the ultimate emancipation.

And even when we don’t feel like attending a concert, filming and recording for hours in a row, we can support those who do.
Past and present.

So today is August 12!
Let’s dive in: What is suggested as your #dailybonjoviyoga for today?


There are 2 different options, which in helicopter view are:

option 1. (guided or with Bon Jovi music)
Choose a yoga playlist from one specific teacher or do yoga on your own with Bon Jovi music, themed by days of the week.

The “freestyle” (do yoga on your own) option, is the only option where you can listen to Bon Jovi. 
The two other options are guided practices.
Which MIGHT be possible to follow along, while having an acoustic I’d Die For You playing solemnly on the background;
But in general, I assume you’re either going for a guided practice OR yoga with Bon Jovi music.

option 2. (guided)
pick one of the programs

option I:  themed day by day

Every day of the week, the Rock Star Yoga/ #dailybonjoviyoga is themed differently:

Monday: Find What Feels Good
do yoga with:🥤 Yoga with Adriene channel
or playlist 1: 🍭 Yoga with Adriene – selection
or playlist 2:🌱Yoga with Adriene Yoga for New Beginnings
or do hatha yoga (on your own) with 🚧Slippery When Wet album🚧 or 🏟️Slippery When Wet tour🌎

Tuesday, showtime! New Jersey Syndicate Tour
do yoga with: 🕉️Ashtanga Yoga and  🏹 Rocket Yoga playlist
or freestyle (on your own) with 🇺🇸New Jersey album🫐🟦 or 🏟️New Jersey Syndicate tour🌎

Wednesday:  🌵🏜️🏍️Santa Fe Day 🦅🏜️🌵
choose a yin yoga/ relaxation video from the yoga playlist
or do relaxing yoga (on your own) with 🏜️Blaze of Glory album🏍️
OR (new!) do yoga (on your own) with the live Dry County and Santa Fe playlist!

Thursday, showtime! Keep the Faith/ I ll Sleep When I m Dead Tour
do yoga with: 🌊Shiva Rea playlist
or buy her 1999 double album 2h practice, Yoga Sanctuary
or freestyle (on your own) with 🛐 Keep the Faith album✝️ or the 🏟️KTF tour🌎

Friday: 🍻 An Evening With Bon Jovi🎤
do yoga with: 💃🏽 Tara Stiles playlist
or do hatha yoga (on your own) with a few songs from the Cross Road album or An Evening With Bon Jovi

Saturday: Showtime! Cross Road/ These Days Tour
do yoga with: 🌶️ Meghan Currie Playlist.
or freestyle (on your own) with
🎸These Days album🚑 or the 🏟️ CR/ TD Tour🌎

Sunday: Vintage Yoga

or hatha yoga (on your own) with 1⃣Bon Jovi- Bon Jovi album💘, 🌋Fahrenheit🔥 or concerts 🎛️1984🎴🏮-🦂🦂🦂-1985🌎

Or, choose the fast lane to enlightenment, with Guns N’ Roses Yoga.
Full story here: 
->  Free yourself. And have breakfast with the other guests.
| A Day or a Lifetime, of Guns N’ Roses Yoga

💀🌹🎸  Guns N’Roses Yoga
do yoga with: 🕉️Ashtanga Yoga and  🏹 Rocket Yoga playlist
or freestyle (on your own) with a 💀🌹🎸 Guns N’ Roses album,
or a concert, for example: 💀🌹🎸 Guns N’ Roses – Paris 06.06.1992 
Or my playlist: Guns N’ Roses Groningen 2022 06 23


option II: week & month program

Dive in with the above schedule, or pick one of the two programs, which are designed in the same Monday to Sunday rhythm.
So for example, every Friday you get a Tara Stiles video:

4 Week Program (15-30 minute videos)
🕉 🎬 yoga playlist:
Rock Your Yoga: 4 Week Program {❤️🤍💙 est. July 4th, 2022}

Monthly playlist, with practices from 15-30 minutes.

Week Program (1 hour videos)
🕉 🎬yoga playlist: 7 Day Yoga Schedule | 1 Hour per day
Ongoing 7 day playlist, with practices of one hour.

Individual videos may be replaced when the original drops out or a better alternative is available, but the lists have a permanent status and you can count on them to stay up. 

{ Friday August 12 }

Every Friday my two programs (28 day and 7 day) suggest a Tara Stiles video.
Tara Stiles was in all probability the first “real” YouTube yoga teacher;
As she started around 2006, supported by her model agency Ford.
Ever since she has published many books, created dvds, and of course countless yoga videos.
She currently teaches STRALA yoga; and offers classes as well as teacher trainings online and in person.
💃🏽 Tara Stiles playlist

Friday 12 August 2022

Friday: 🍻 An Evening With Bon Jovi🎤
do yoga with: 💃🏽 Tara Stiles playlist
or do hatha yoga (on your own) with a few songs from the Cross Road album or An Evening With Bon Jovi

My personal practice today, was yoga with An Evening With Bon Jovi (1h:10m:50s), including a lot of relaxing poses, and a lot of cat cuddling.
This week, 3 people or organizations I follow on social media, all lost a cat.
So I feel very grateful to have mine healthy, and disturbing my yoga practice.

This specific upload An Evening With Bon Jovi (1h:10m:50s), seems to have cut out the intro and in-between bits, and is shorter than another version out there which is almost 15 minutes longer.
From what I could see, no songs were missing.
