I’m currently playing the spy-themed video game Splinter Cell: Conviction. A big part of the game is hiding from the bad guys. While you are hidden you can listen to their chatter to one another. A line you keep hearing from them is “We’ve got trouble!” after which I will always exclaim to myself “Right here in River City!”. I think this is one of those “new lows” you hear so much about.
This is what makes Jordan Morris so great. And just one more reason for why I donated to Maximum Fun.
Another skinny boy, mournfully crooning a sad song…
I’ve long been a huge fan of Mr. Cullum and was extremely excited to hear that his latest album, “The Pursuit”, was getting a vinyl release. I had been saying for some time that his music would sound absolutely incredible on vinyl, especially when you consider that he makes music the old fashioned way: on analogue systems.
Exclusive to the vinyl edition of the album were two bonus tracks, “I Get Along Without You Very Well”, and “Perfectly Lonely”. I hadn’t actually listened to the album from start-to-finish on vinyl until the other day which meant I hadn’t heard the bonus tracks until then, and my goodness am I glad I did! “I Get Along Without You Very Well” is fine, but “Perfectly Lonely” is absolutely incredible. The writing. The performance. The production. It’s quickly becoming my favourite Jamie Cullum song.
But unless you owned the vinyl, you were never going to hear it. Until now that is. Thanks to your dear friend Adam who was kind enough to make a needledrop to share this incredible song with you.
But seriously, if you haven’t yet picked up a copy of The Pursuit, do yourself a favour and do so. Be it the CD, the Vinyl (“Music is Through” is absolutely staggering on the vinyl release), or on iTunes. You won’t be disapointed. Well, unless of course you don’t actually like music.
Thriller spent all 52 weeks of 1983 in the Top Ten of the Pop album chart, 37 weeks of which were spent at number 1. It also became the first album in history to start a year at number 1 and end the same year at number 1.
Velvet Empire was a Canadian pop music group that was formed through the second edition of the Global TV show Popstars, entitled “Boy Meets Girl.” The group was formed in the spring of 2002. The winners of the 10-month competition, intended to form a pop group comprising both male and female members, were Alex Price, Justin Humes, Janelle Belgrave, Lacey Block and Ryan Hamilton. The new group called itself Velvet Empire and released its self-titled debut album and debut single, “Frontin’ On Me,” in 2002. Despite the single receiving much radio and video play, the album’s sales were not up to expectations. As a result, the group disbanded by 2003.
This song has sort of been a running joke amongst me and a few friends. Though joke is perhaps not the right word, as that implies we don’t actually like the song.
We don’t like the song. We (BLEEP)ing love it.
So much better than any of the Canadian Idol bullshit.
If I ruled the world, Every man would see the world was his friend. Yeah There’d be happiness that no man could end, no my friend, not if i ruled the world. Every hand would be held up high, There’d be sunshine in everyones sky. If the day ever dawned, will I rule the world.
In this article, I show examples of Facebook’s data leaks. I compare these leaks to Facebook’s privacy promises, and I point out that Facebook has been on notice of this problem for at least eight months. I conclude with specific suggestions for Facebook to fix this problem and prevent its reoccurrence.
Personally I have understood since day one that anything on the internet isn’t really private despite what anyone says, and so I’m not that concerned.
Having said that: this is appalling. Facebook needs to pick up the slack and fix this. Not next week. Not after they roll out the 7th interface re-design of the month. But right now.
Absolutely fascinating real-time drama in a Metafilter thread where a member asked for help convincing a Russian friend not to take a “job” in a likely front for prostitution in NY. Read through and I guarantee you will be tearing up at the conclusion.
This is the real reason we need social media. Not for updates on my dinner, or movies I hated. But saving lives.
