Welcome!

The mission of Montessori Western Teacher Training Program is to facilitate the development of the “whole” adult. Our approach is to present the Montessori Method as an open-ended system designed to foster autonomy. We support this model by providing a related group of varied experiences that are congruent, on an adult level, with the child’s experience and growth in a Montessori setting.

Jay Z Linkin Park Collision Course

  • Jay-Z Arrives. Jazz Latin New Age. Ateez Treasure Ep. And despite rap being much more top friendly in the early '00s than nu-metal, "In the End" had hit a higher peak on the Jay Z Linkin Park Collision Course No. In any event, it wasn't about chest-puffing: What made Collision Course work as a project is the humility that both artists brought to the collaboration. Not only did the album debut at No. It's really surprising.

    This is the perfect combination of both. I've listened to it so much I can't remember whose song is whose anymore. The mixing is perfect Mike Shenoda did an excellent job and the dvd is really interesting too.

    You get to see Mike and Jay in the studio putting the final touches on the cd and kind of laughing about how awesome their music sounds together. It's really surprising. Their stuff isn't something I would've thought to put together but when you put Jay's rhymes with LP's music, it's a no brainer, and for me, that was the best part.

    All the transitions from Rock to Rap are done prefectly and smothly. Just watch the giddiness with which he and Shinoda lay their dolorous "In the End" vocals against the buoyant strings and pianos of "Izzo," unable to control their excitement at their misery masterpiece being turned ecstatic. It's infectious. Don't forget, by the way, that Collision Course was a huge hit in real time.

    Not only did the album debut at No. It's only in retrospect that the set is remembered as anything like a disaster, a failed exercise in hubris between two artists from different worlds.

    They were only in different worlds when we took the time and energy to separate them. It seemed like it was time to put a fork in the pranky genre when collections like The Best Bootlegs in the World Ever and Soulwax 's As Heard on Radio Soulwax series exposed the mash-up to a wider audience, but then Danger Mouse came along.

    The fact that the artists are involved with the project totally goes against the mash-up philosophy, but luckily Linkin Park -- who are revealed through the DVD as the main architects of the EP -- have that pop-loving prankster spirit and don't let their high-profile, well-funded life ruin it. The liner notes talk of a "once-in-a-lifetime performance" and "music history," but Collision Course is just plain old fun and all the better because of it.

    The Z-man -- who's "retired" from the rap game while being busier than ever -- has had his excellent "99 Problems" rocked up before, so the version here with Linkin Park 's "Points of Authority" and "One Step Closer" isn't so much the revelation the liner-note hyperbole makes it out to be, but it's got an awesome beat and you can still dance to it.

    If the CD were released on its own, the collection wouldn't be as exciting. It's doubtful mash-ups will survive corporate handling this well again, and to paraphrase a post-show Linkin Parker , Collision Course is awesomely fun. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.

Most of the LOL'ing over Collision Course in the years to come has come as a byproduct of its general thesis that Linkin Park and JAY-Z were equivalent titans in their respective fields, worthy adversaries on either side of the "Vs.

    But commercially, the scales were tipped in the other direction. And despite rap being much more top friendly in the early '00s than nu-metal, "In the End" had hit a higher peak on the Hot No. While tastemakers would scoff at the idea of Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington in a match of heavyweights with Shawn Carter, for the kids listening at home, it was at worst a draw. In any event, it wasn't about chest-puffing: What made Collision Course work as a project is the humility that both artists brought to the collaboration.

    On the bonus DVD, both Jay and LP are seen going out of their way to accommodate the other, Jigga happily re-recording vocals while Shinoda takes his notes on song-structuring to heart. The two decided that instead of combining the existing tracks for the live performance on MTV, they wanted to re-work and re-record parts of the songs to make them fit better.

    Shinoda explains, "Jay and I realized it's better to re-perform the rap vocals if you're gonna do it to a new beat because the vibe changes and you have to deliver your verse a little differently. Sometimes, behind-the-scenes audio can be heard within the album, such as Jay-Z saying "You're wasting your talent, Randy! Collision Course was the first album of Linkin Park that contained a Parental Advisory sticker, since most of Jay-Z's verses contain profanity although Shinoda and Chester Bennington are also heard using vulgar language on the album.

    Linkin Park wouldn't use profanities themselves until Minutes to Midnight in Also, the song "High Road" from the same record talks about how some critics negatively received Collision Course. Critics gave mixed reviews to Collision Course. David Jeffries of AllMusic praised the album, calling it "awesomely fun". Tindal of HipHopDX also equally praised the album, saying that the project "will open a passageway for artists who want to dare to be different as well as those who want to work hard to maintain that difference.

    Meanwhile, Raymond Fiore of Entertainment Weekly , gave a negative review of the album, saying that the pairing of Linkin Park and Jay-Z "comes off like a sanitized nonevent.
