I love Peter Hollens, his music is awesome! He has almost 4 octaves in his vocal range and a college degree in Vocal Performance. He has all of his music on YouTube, there are links to buy it all, and he pays all the necessary licenses for his covers, he's always legal and legit. Ethics are sexy! Did you know he co-founded the U of Oregon's 'On The Rocks' male a cappella group...and went on to compete with them on The Sing-Off season 2?  https://www.youtube.com/user/peterhollens/videos
 
Woohoo! Peter Hollens CD!

A capella artist +Peter Hollens's new CD came in the mail today! For those of you who haven't seen Peter's Youtube videos, I highly recommend giving them some time. One of my favourites is the one he just released, a cover of the Song of the Lonely Mountain from The Hobbit:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RI3fkqA9-IA

He was also involved in the viral Angels We Have Heard on High Christmas music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELjgFKACcdQ

If you like what you see/hear, there are multiple ways of purchasing the CD - they are listed on his website: http://www.peterhollens.com.

No, I am not being paid for this advertisement, but I'm happy to support independent artists who make awesome and unique music. I've been enjoying +Peter Hollens's videos for a long time, and it's exciting to see him successful - and pretty cool to now have a physical CD of his music. :-)

This is an interesting new take on "peak oil."

http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2016/05/03/peak-oil-date-bernstein-research_n_9825300.html

I'd heard a few years ago that they were expecting the end of the oil age around 2050 due to the exponential oil price growth that this article talks about. But it's refreshing to know that we, as a species, might be smarter than I thought, and will get rid of fossil fuels through responsible renewable resource use.

A proposed change to the ‘Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure’ issued yesterday by the United States Supreme Court allows federal judges to grant the FBI permission to hack multiple computers at once, including machines belonging to people who haven’t been suspected of a crime. It can even hack people the FBI knows to be innocent.

Sadly, now closed. Sign on door says a Korean restaurant will open in the same spot. The food is wonderful here, freshly prepared sushi husband says was excellent; my vegetable Tempura was delightful, and the place had very few customers on this Friday evening. I hope it stays afloat in this economy, its an affordable gem. The decor is nothing special, but if good food is your goal, with good service, this is the place.

I like Maplewood Community Center because unlike other health clubs, they have no contracts to sign...you join for however long you like, a year, a month, three months....or buy a 10-visit card to 'try it out' if you dislike committing too far at first. They have lots of classes, especially mornings and evenings; as an unemployed person for years now, I actually wish they had more mid-day class options. They are close to a busline that stops on the half-hour; they have childcare; and they have an onsite Subway Sandwich Shop as well as vending machines. Ample locker rooms have lockers that lock with a quarter, but when you unlock your locker, it gives you back the quarter. It has a very large parking lot that is often more than half full, so its a popular place. Its a wonderful place, clean, friendly, has a pool (not all fitness places have pools) sometimes when my mind considers moving out of our rental...I want to move closer to the Maplewood Community Center. Its multiple levels but it does have an elevator, and a wheelchair ramp. A walking track, weight machine area, all the normal things a fitness center should have. Its only lacks in my opinion is not having a sauna, and the pool is chlorine rather than other, healthier ways to keep a pool clean.

We've used this Pizza Hut at least 12 times over 4 years now, and yes, *sometimes* they get the order wrong, but always, the manager or night manager makes it up to us one way or another for the wait while we get our order re-done. It helps that we always go pick it up rather than have it delivered, so we can catch mistakes there in the store usually. Usually. Once husband got the large pizza home and it must have been newer staff and/or dinner rush cause I opened that box and immediately I could tell that pizza was underdone. Crust was firm but still white, sent husband back with it. He returned with a proper large and another identical large thrown in free, for our trouble and wait. We do have an unusual preference, meatlovers pan with no sauce. I can see how a pizza-maker could get into the habit of starting the sauce on the dough before checking to see if the order has special requests. Once I ordered a personal pan no sauce and the maker put sauce on it then noticed the order was for 'no sauce' and it was their last personal-size dough they had, so I got a medium size pizza for the price of a personal pan pizza. That was cool in the long run. Meanwhile, Pizza Hut has always been my favorite pizza place, and the food is tasty, the price is great (love the $10 sales) and they never mind when I order unusual combos like bacon and Canadian bacon. Now.....if only they had a topping option of shrimp.
