Even weirder, I got a fat envelope in the mail today with the return address "Bill Mason, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor." It was stuff with eight pages of material touting all the wonderful things he's done in office. The return address was his home in Seven Hills. I was wondering at whose expense this material was mailed and why.
Thanks for pointing that out. It was an incorrect preposition — should have been "with" not "as." I made the fix.
They returned all the tiles to the park but I can't tell you where because it was so crowded and I didn't go looking for them. But they are there.
The Clear Channel press release used the word “new” five times (including the headline), calling itself a "new rock alternative." That Black Keys track was just about the newest thing it played in its first hour, coming from the band’s most recent album, El Camino, released this past December.
The rest of the station’s first hour playlist featured U2’s “Mysterious ways” (1991), Stone Temple Pilots’ “Wicked Garden” (1992), Smashing Pumpkins’ “Cherub Rock” (1993), and Live’s “I Alone” (1994). It also included tracks only a little more than a decade old like Alien Ant Farm’s “Smooth Criminal,” Rage Against the Machine’s “Sleep Now in the Fire,” Fuel’s “Hemorrhage,” and POD’s Alive.” Newer tracks included Fun’s “We Are Young” and Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know,” currently being played to death at Top 40 radio and so a little hard to dub “alternative.”
The station’s press release also touted the “best new rock alternative music” it’ll be playing: “The Black Keys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Linkin Park, Nirvana, and Green Day. It added that the playlist will also include “artists such as Muse, Jimmy Eat World, Young The Giant, Harvey Danger, Gotye, Imagine Dragons and Airborne Toxic Event,” the majority of them newer (although Harvey Danger and Jimmy Eat World will both soon be celebrating their 20th anniversaries) but also mostly affiliated with what remains of major labels – hence hardly “alternative.”
The decision to go to law school (even while he was playing) didn't work out so badly for Dick Ambrose. Long after his playing days are over, he's got an actual career.
Certainly, if it was the case that the girl was the iPad was distracting, she should have been asked quietly by a security guard to move, rather than smashing her iPad. I think too many bands are just heedless and don't think about the consequences of what they do – as this band didn't two years ago on the Warped tour when they were pitching cans of energy drink into the crowd and cut open a girl's head. I heard the music was pretty bad, but i wasn't there.
Nice! What is that Vera Lynn thing about?
