Keith "Keeti" Palmer (born 21 March 1967, in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England), best known as Maxim or Maxim Reality, is an MC of the British electronica/rave band The Prodigy. He is known for his fierce style of appearance in both music videos and live shows, often wearing coloured contact lenses and kilts.

Pre-Prodigy history

Maxim was born in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, England, youngest of four children, he went to the Jack Hunt secondary school, also in Peterborough. He enjoyed writing poetry and verse and began MC-ing around the age of 14. He gained inspiration from his ten year older MC brother, MC Starky Ban Tan, who introduced him into the Peterborough Reggae Soundsystem Scene. At the age of 17 he had his first gig in Basingstoke. Ian Sherman, a fellow musician from Nottingham teamed up with Maxim and they formed Maxim Reality and Sheik Yan Groove, where Sherman made the music and Maxim contributed with lyrics. After recording some tracks together and not getting any attention from the record industries, Maxim decided to disband and went on a three month travel throughout Europe and North Africa. Upon returning to England he moved to London to get more into the music and reggae scene of the metropol. Through a friend, Ziggy, he was offered a gig with a band called The Prodigy, which he accepted. He was planning to do just a few gigs with the band, but he later decided to stay. His maniac appearance and intense performance made him popular in the rave scene. The City of Peterborough is a cathedral city and Unitary Authority in the East of England. ...

MC of The Prodigy

Originally joining The Prodigy to make the live shows become more alive, Maxim's lyrical talents were later incorporated in the studio works of the albums after Experience from 1992 (although his vocal contributions were heard in the live track "Death of the Prodigy Dancers" on Experience). Maxim provided lyrics in the single "Poison" from Music For the Jilted Generation (1994), as well as in the hit single "Breathe" from The Fat of the Land (1997). However, on the Prodigy album Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned from 2004, his vocal works were completely absent, apart from the single "Spitfire" and an appearance on the album's first single "Girls" in form of a remix called "More girls". He is still a full member of the band, though, performing in the live shows and, according to their official web site, recording material with Liam Howlett.

Solo projects

Due to the almost constant touring and recording with The Prodigy, Maxim rarely had a chance to make his own solo material. After the band started to take it more easy after the intense touring to support The Fat of the Land in late 1998, he finally had the spare time to work and finish some of his projects. That year he released "Dog Day" on the XL promo Against the Grain, which also featured Howlett's "Dirtchamber Remix" of "Diesel Power" (from The Fat of the Land) and Maxim's cover version of the Rolling Stones' "Factory Girl". On 9 August 1999 Maxim released the EP My Web, which contained five tracks. In 2000 Maxim had a collaboration with Skin from Skunk Anansie on the song "Carmen Queasy", which remains his biggest solo success. A second single, "Scheming", was released September 11, and finally the full-length album Hell's Kitchen, was released on 2 October 2000. 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

Cosmpolitan vs. Maxim (1832 words)
Maxim sends the message to men in their images, articles, and advertisements that women are mere objects that enjoy their gazes, and want to be dominated.
Maxim promotes lying about affairs to their girlfriends with suggestions like, "always dial 411 after a 'naughty' call," and warns men to be cautious of women leaving things behind "to mark their territory" (page 64).
The distortion of reality in these magazines is exemplified best in a disclaimer for Cosmopolitan: "the models photographed in cosmopolitan are used for illustrative purposes only; Cosmopolitan does not suggest that the models actually engage in the conduct discussed in the stories they illustrate" (Cosmopolitan credits).
SRCM On-line Books: Complete Works of Ram Chandra - Volume I (14264 words)
Reality has a claim to be known for itself without the limitations and strictures of desire for any goals such as happiness or pleasure or power.
Man feels his reality to be of paramount concern and the realisation of that reality is the basic impulse of his being; and happiness, pleasure, power and so on are just means considered and surrendered on the march towards his own reality-realisation.
This was because of the shade of reality which they remained under till the time of dissolution, which helped them to retain the effect of the impressions during the entire period of their existence.
