Living Colour
"Before Rage Against the Machine, way before Limp Bizkit and the nu-metal posse, Living Colour put the hip-hop into punk and metal, renewing rock as a black art. They're back - and still ahead of the pack."


Shut Up You Fucking Baby! is Sub Pop's first-ever intentional comedy release. This 2-cd set was recorded during a sold out spring/summer 2002 national tour.

Cross is shart, incisive and extremely funny.

so, so funny!

The Audiopad is projected on a special table equipped with radio sensors that track the position and movement of half a dozen plastic discs, or "pucks."

Most of the pucks control a series of preprogrammed tracks -- the rhythm, the bass line, the melody and so on.

There's a large circular puck that changes the volume of each track when moved closer or further away, allowing different tracks to be emphasized at different times.

This is super cool, check the video of it in action.

John Edwards is 4 months late on taxes
Sen. John Edwards, North Carolina Democrat and 2004 presidential hopeful, is four months delinquent in paying the property taxes on his Georgetown mansion and owes the cash-strapped District more than $11,000, city records show.

Mr. Edwards is worth somewhere between $12 million and $30 million after a successful career as a personal injury lawyer, according to his financial disclosure forms. He bought the eight-bedroom, 6,672-square-foot home in the tony neighborhood for $3.8 million in September.

Snake Plissken not dead
The character made famous by Kurt Russell in “Escape From New York” is set to become a franchise in all media under the brand “The Snake Plissken Chronicles.” Plissken has already been the pivotal presence in two films: the 1981 favorite and its 1996 sequel, “Escape From L.A.”

A Series of deals by Russell, director John Carpenter and producer Debra Hill, — who, as the company Snake World, jointly own the character rights — has added video games, an anime movie, comic books, action figures and novelization tie-ins to the ways Plissken’s story is being told.

Escape from New York is one of my favorite cult films from the 80's. So yeah, I'm happy about this.

A few tips and some background on the boys

I'm butch, girlfriend
How Do You Rate? Your score is 42 LEVEL 3 -- MOSTLY STRAIGHT ACTING You lead a normal everyday life and it's 'no questions asked' as people just assume you are straight. Every once and awhile a very aware person might notice something that causes them to think 'fem' but it's a fleeting thought because you turn around and surprise them with more masculine traits before they even have time to fully analyze the last one.
Preparing for the storm
This weekend, is going to be a really really really big work weekend. I just hope to get as much sleep in tonight, as possible to prep for what will probably be the most crazy work weekend since I started working at my job. I will just settle on drinking lots of coffee and eating lots of sugarry snacks and take part in the world of eating junk to stay awake while I work. I made it clear to myself that on Monday, after I hand everything in, I will more or less sleep.
