A geezer called Zoot Money is playing at a festival near us. Never heard of him before, and I wondered if he was a zappa tribute. Well, no, but he sound interesting anyhow. Might go and request louie louie.

"Zoot Money (born George Bruno Money, 17 July 1942, Bournemouth, England) is a British vocalist, keyboardist and bandleader best known for his playing of the Hammond organ and association with his Big Roll Band."

In this digital age, why would an artist spend 6 months or more trying to create an outstanding piece of work when he could be robbed by any anonymous PC/Mac in 10 minutes or less ?
So, many compose in 10 minutes or less some crap music to feed the system and get some bits. They need to spend the rest of the time trying to find money elsewhere. The concept of free music will kill the music.
Imagine if this digital age happened in the sixties ! No "Sergeant Pepper", no "Freak Out", no "Axis bold as love"...
:P

Don't tell me about reaching more peoples that way. Yeah, but there's also more bands in the game (and more crap music for sure), reducing that mass of fans. These bands still don't get their money's worth. These crap bands would never make it in a non-digital age.
An artist needs a certain amount of followers to get by. And a lot of them can't make it by concerts alone.

According to the Recording Industry Association of America, the first album by the Ramones was certified gold on 30 April, 2014.

That's 38 years and 7 days after its release date...

It's hard for me to tell as a native Dutchman, but is the level of English in this article as unprofessional as I think it is?

I think Virginia's open primary (a primary election in which voters are not required to declare party affiliation) may have influenced the outcome.

Open primaries need to be the law of the land.

There are good arguments either way. But Constitutionally, how to elect a congressman is a states-rights issue. I don't think there's even a federal requirement that states have to have primaries...

How do we die? What killed Americans in 1900 vs. 2010

Note: Nephropathies = Kidney disease, Cerebrovascular disease = stroke, Frailty = Old age
Son of note: Life expectancy has increased more than thirty years since 1900

Not helpful research at all.
When I helped my father out with researching genealogy charts and checking pile after pile after pile of death lists: 95% of those people died of "verval van krachten", loss of strength. Nobody dies of that anymore: nowadays we know whether it's cancer, cardiovascular, bronchitis etc. We'll need to wait for another 70 years to be able to draw a good comparison with causes of death. And we'll have to be able to rule out any epidemics obscuring the data.

....I don't get cancer. When I was a pre-teen, I lost a close friend to cancer and have believed that I don't get that shit. 50yrs. later after a life of sin and debauchery, but eating right with only 10yrs. in "processed foods" as diet. I have enough other stuff to make cancer think....why bother, we can't torture the sob any more than whats happening. The big C don't know that I put on a great act and am having a semi-ball of it. Anything in moderation as long as it doesn't cause a murder.
Maybe I should donated the ol' bod to science eh? :roll:

Supreme Court’s historic decision on warrantless disclosures is huge win for Canadian privacy, places big question mark over constitutionality of govt’s Bill C-13

June 13, 2014 – In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled, unanimously, that telecom providers cannot hand over their customers’ private information to government authorities without a warrant.
The ruling means that the widespread practice of government authorities acquiring Canadians’ private information form telecom providers without a warrant must now come to an end.

Hamilton man arrested again for having sex with pool float

HAMILTON, OH -

A Hamilton man with a long history of public indecency convictions was arrested again for simulating sex with a pool float.

Edwin Tobergta, 35, was arrested Wednesday morning after a witness observed him standing naked on Route 4 in Hamilton simulating sex with a pink pool floatation device. According to the police report, the witness said he was in full view of nearby businesses and passing cars.

He was charged with public indecency and contempt of court.

Tobergta was previously arrested in June of 2013 after he engaged in sex with a pool float outside of his house in front of several children. He pleaded guilty to that offense and was sentenced to 11 months in prison but was released early.

In August of 2011 he was arrested for a similar offense involving having sex with a pink swimming pool raft.

In 2002, he was caught having sex with an inflatable pumpkin that was part of a Halloween display.

His mother must be so proud...
