Facebook: Angry Dad Shoots Laptop, Doesn't Like Daughter's FB Posts

Angry dad, lol.

I loves how he picks on her "curse words" and drops multiple F bombs himself. The good stuff is toward the end. And she's paying for those bullets.

If I was her, I'd go for emancipated minor status stat.

Have a good day, y'all.

Why get the new Amazon Kindle Fire tablet / e-reader?

The New Kindle Fire!

(and why you want it)

Why get the new Amazon Kindle Fire tablet slash e-reader?

Amazon just cornered the market on e-reading, and will sell tons of the Fires because it's only 200 bucks. I will probably buy one just to read magazines and comics.

I don't think amazon thinks this is the iPad killer or anything. Heck, there is no 3g... but, what it does do is pretty much shaft barnes & noble, especially when you consider the 3 new e-ink devices they announced, one starting at 80 bucks.

If you are into e-reading, Amazon just made a huge splash in that market, and B&N, Sony, Kobo, PocketBook, etc are in trouble.

Advance speculation was that the Kindle Fire was going to be sold for $249. B&N sent out a marketing email in the middle of the night dropping their Nook Color price from $249 to $224. Then Amazon announces at $199 this morning. Hilarious. I'll probably get one for my wife because sometimes one iPad isn't enough but I don't think we need another tablet enough to drop another $500+. $200 is just about perfect for a 2nd e-reader / email / internet toy.

Amazon = run by geniuses

Phish: A Benefit For Vermont Flood Recovery September 14, 2011

via PDP:

Phish will play a special show at Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction, VT next Wednesday, September 14th. The concert will benefit Vermont flood recovery efforts. In the wake of Hurricane Irene, Vermont experienced its worst flooding in a century, which devastated communities throughout the state.

Phish: A Benefit For Vermont Flood Recovery September 14, 2011

"It's been heartbreaking to see all the loss and destruction that came from the storm," said Phish keyboardist Page McConnell. "Vermont is very much a part of who we are as a band. We're really looking forward to playing this show and we hope the money raised will make a difference in the recovery and rebuilding effort."

General admission tickets will be $75. In addition, a special "Friend of WaterWheel" package will be available for $250. It will include preferred parking, a reserved box seat, a limited edition poster and access to a Vermont craft beer tent. A very limited number of tickets are available directly through Phish Tickets' online ticketing system at http://phish.portals.musictoday.com. The ticket request period is currently underway and will end on Wednesday, September 7, at noon ET. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Saturday, September 10, at 10:00 AM ET. In order to ensure that a large allotment of tickets is available to local residents, the public onsale will be in-person only. The box office location will be announced this Friday at http://phish.com, by email update and on local radio stations. There will be a limit of two tickets per person whether individuals are purchasing in person or during the online ticket request period.

Proceeds from the concert and merchandise sales will be directed to The WaterWheel Foundation and The Vermont Community Foundation to aid in the recovery of the Green Mountain State.

The WaterWheel Foundation was created by Phish in 1997 to oversee the band's various charitable activities. Fans can donate to The WaterWheel Foundation by clicking here. You should specify that they would like their contribution to go to Vermont flood recovery efforts. The Vermont Community Foundation was founded in 1986 and is Vermont's largest homegrown philanthropic foundation, managing a collection of over 600 charitable funds that invest more than $18 million annually in Vermont through grants, loans and other investments. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, the Foundation worked with donors and other partners to facilitate donations for relief and recovery efforts, including the establishment of a fund to benefit Vermont farmers affected by the storm. Visit www.vermontcf.org or call 802-388-3355 for more information.

The show will be Phish's first in Vermont since 2004. Doors will open at 5:30 PM and the concert will begin at 7:00 PM.

23 This Year: The SUB POP Amazon Sampler FREE!

23 This Year: The Sub Pop Amazon Sampler

Sub Pop Records is a Seattle based pretty successful record company with many band names on their web site. This free mp3 sampler is 23 bands on 23 tracks.

Track 1 Fleet Foxes with Helplessness Blues. Meaningful strong vocal over quickly frantic acoustic guitar. Kicks in a bit of bass stays consistent, great song.

Amor Fati by Washed Out(Ernest Greene)up next. Alternative rock track hollow vocal over straight forward music. Nothing fancy good track.

Vetiver playing Wonder Why is next. Mellow easy listening indie song that cruises along behind male lyric and simple backing sounds. Nice.

Track 4 is The Head And The Heart playing Lost In My Mind. Quiet male vocal over guitar and subdued band, nice lyrics, cool ohooohohing vocalist kicks it up a notch on very nice folky/indie song.

Fruit Bats (Eric D. Johnson) bring us Tangie and Ray. Different vocal on peppy song that changes enough to keep our interest. Nice Indie Pop song.

Track 6 is by Aureilo singing Tio Sam. Very cool African Caribbean sound behind neat clear lead vocal, drums and backing singers. Like it a lot.

The Fox is by Niki & The Dove. Two person band from Sweden. Cool Alternative track nothing boring a little messy but you will keep listening to the active strong female vocal. Very nice.

Mogwai bring us Rano Pano. Great distorted guitar opening slowly builds with drums and what could be atomic Kazoos. Remains an instrumental track that maintains it's slightly threatening undertone, you will keep listening. Like it.

Track 9 is Shabazz Palaces with Swerve...the reeping of all that is worthwhile (Noir not withstanding). Male and female Rap vocals over electro/techno noises.

Still Corners with Endless Summer bring us back to music. Hollow dreamy female vocal over mixture of synthesizer sounds that get stronger as we progress then it's over.

Chad Vangaalen with Peace On The Rise is next. Hollow male vocal plodding along behind bad production and simplistic instruments. Predictable Indie song.

Track 12 is Not Enough from J Mascis. Another great singer songwriter in your ears vocal over acoustic guitar and other singers. Very folky very nice.

Rebound from Sebadoh. Raccous opening (very refreshing) gives way to lone singer over classic sounding 3 piece band. Cruises along w/nice California garage band sound. Track is over way too soon.

Next up Orbits playing You Gotta Lose. Equally cool opening up beat band
and intense singer. Punky sound great song.

Track 15 is He Gets Me High by Dum Dum Girls. I love the Dum Dum Girls. Similar great Pop/punky sound to their songs this is no exception. Slightly distorted sound great smart song.

Handsome Furs bring us Repatriated. Strong New Wave sound and 80's vocal. Pulsing dance beat behind much more. Cruises along nicely, echoes of the 80's it's all good on this great song.

The Twilight Singers are next with On The Corner. Very good rock song, superior intro, strong sound, cool vocal. Band and singer grow and stretch as the song expands, keeps getting bigger this is a brilliant song. Even has cool fade to end.

Number 18 is Papercuts with Do You Really Wanna Know. Dreamy hollow vocal over straining band. Song soars and cruises stays the same, pretty good Dream Pop.

Mister Heavenly is the band Bronx Sniper is the song. Pretty cool strong rock band sound after trick quiet opening. Great vocal rowdy band very deliberate and calculated sound that rocks. Love it.

Track 20 is Male Bonding with Bones. Any rapid playing guitar fade in to a song is a good start. Weird Motorhead lyrical flashback (It's all the same to me) as the singer starts however the dreamy vocal over frantic distorted guitar and simple drums soon take over. At 6 and half minutes song starts to age, these guys maintain a beat and rock on through. Like it.

Avi Buffalo with How Come? is next. Cool thumping bass behind new female vocal and messy music. Actually stays interesting and sounds pretty good. Initially I thought they were Pomplamoose (from Hyundai Christmas TV ad) they are not. Nice song.

Especially Me from Low is next. Song opens with a well used line (Cry me a river) quickly goes it's own way with very nice female vocal over strengthening band in the back ground. Very cool 5 and half minutes of superior vocal and band. This is a very well produced quality song.

Last track is Daniel Martin Moore with O My Soul. We close with initially mellow male vocal over controlled acoustic guitar, song quickly becomes stronger and better. High quality singer songwriter number to end a very high quality mp3 download from Amazon.

This 23 track free sampler starts well and never looks back. A superior collection of very talented musicians. Every track adds something to the sampler. Production is mostly very good, content is superior, overall this is a great sampler. A neat mix of mostly Indie, Alternative and Folk sometimes on the same song.

I strongly suggest you download now, recent Amazon samplers have quickly become for sale or been withdrawn. I cannot imagine this collection will be free for long and I'd be surprised if you delete many tracks.

BestDealUSA: iPhone/iPod External Battery Backup (1900mAh) for $6.50

Hurricane Irene: 'God's Warning' -Michele Bachmann

Hurricane Irene
'God's Warning' - Michele Bachmann

Uploaded by on Aug 29, 2011


As Hurricane Irene ravaged the East Coast this weekend, Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann said the storm and last week's earthquake were God's way of trying to get politicians in Washington to deal with soaring federal deficits.

"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending," Bachmann said in Sarasota on Sunday, according to the St. Petersburg Times.

On Monday, Bachmann's campaign spokesperson Alice Stewart said the Minnesota congresswoman was just joking.
