a little music please



Thank goodness, folks are finally getting into how cool Pandora is. Created by musician wonks, Pandora is an internet radio station that learns what kinda music you like. Here's a little sample of Pandora at work.

I recently downloaded a little music, so I put together a playlist of mp3 files via amazon. I checked out their new service offering drm free mp3 downloads and it was easy, and yes Virginia, you really did get drm free mp3 files, which were easy to upload to your iPod if you wanted to you. Anyway, here's some music for you.

New Stuff to Watch



Got a few new episodes of The Office to check out. Not sure if I have a favorite yet. All good. In the music section, we added a few Terry Garland videos and should also have a new Everlast music video for you later today (Here it is). For movies - check out John Carpenter's The Thing or a delightfully bizarre film, Coffee and Cigarettes. Got more on the way too. Busy busy busy.

NOTLD Released 40 Years Ago



On December 5, 1968 - The Night of The Living Dead was released in theaters. The Night of The Living Dead was the work of director George Romero, Duane Jones who starred as Ben, Judith O'Dea as Barbra, Keith Wayne as Tom, and Karl Hardman as Harry Cooper. The low budget classic did pretty well in the theaters and remains a terrific film 40 years later. You can watch the Zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead for free, or better still - we offer a high quality DVD iso download for just $10. Easy as pie to make your own DVD.

Enjoy a brewski today - 75 years ago, on December 5, 1933 Prohibition ended. Wow, it is hard to think of a time when it was illegal to have a beer or a glass of wine or, oh my - a vodka tonic, a cosmo or a a little Sambuca in your expresso. But I think it really happened. And it ended 75 years ago today. To honor this event - here's a few links related to the subject of alcohol. Beer, Wine, Alcohol, drunk, drinking, moonshine, or moon shine. Staff picks - Aunt Bea's Medicine Man - the episode where Aunt Bea gets tiddly, a little lit, tipsy, etc etc. Also - Granny's Spring Tonic, where Granny makes her first spring batch of hooch from the still at the cement pond. Plus - Drinking & Eating PSA, too weird to explain... and the Terry Garland song, The Bible and Jim Beam. Cheers, prohibition ended today 75 years ago - December 5, 1933.
