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. :-)

A cappella 'Song of Durin?! The divine voice of Peter Hollens caresses the lyrics: "The light of sun and star and moon, in shining lamps of crystal hewn, undimmed by cloud or shade of night, they shone forever fair..."
"The darkness dwells in Durin's halls; the shadow lies upon his tomb in Moria, in Khazad-dûm."

Since 2009, Colorado has had the single most effective anti-abortion program in the country. In its first four years (for which we now have full data), it reduced abortions by 42%, and teen pregnancies by 40%. And there is nothing particularly startling about the success, because it was done by the most obvious means possible: give contraception to women who want it but can't get access to it, namely teenagers and people who can't afford it. 

"Startlingly," this turns out to work quite well, quite inexpensively, and make basically everyone happy. ("Startlingly" is in quotes because I suspect that if I asked someone who knew nothing about American politics, "what would you do to decrease the rate of unwanted pregnancies?," they would probably guess pretty much exactly what Colorado did, and be not at all startled that it worked) 

(This is not actually a horribly new story, there are just some more numbers out. We've known that this has been working well for quite some time.)
A program to offer long-acting birth control, like free IUDs and implants, has helped reduce teenage pregnancies by 40 percent and abortions by 42 percent.

Mostly a cappella, 'Home' includes hand & foot-stomp percussion
Intricate a cappella: Peter Hollens typically performs the voice and beatbox parts of a song, recording 60 to as many as 120 tracks, creating works of depth and complexity.

You people need to get off of Obama's ass. He's the best president we've had in a long time. Don't believe anything corporate media like Fox News says. Remember, they are the same ones that put racist images towards Muslims in the minds of Americans and make what Israel is doing to Palestine look like "keeping peace". They are the ones who spread lies about anonymous calling us terrorists, threatening and evil. They are the ones who make bad presidents like George Bush look good and Obama look bad. By placing blame on Obama with idea that originated from corporate media, you are no better than the brainwashed people that you are apparently trying to "awaken". Spread the truth, not lies. Remember why we hacked Fox News live. Because they lie. Not to mention, Obama vetoed the Republican congress when trying to lower taxes on the rich and leaving poor and middle class citizens to struggle with the same amount of taxes. All they want is to lower taxes for themselves. And Obama said no. So who is really to blame. You are to blame for believing this nonsense. And the NWO will most likely NOT come into effect until either Jeb Bush, Hilary Clinton, or Donald Trump becomes president. So basically don't vote for them, that is how you delay the NWO.
Sincerely,
Truth

Please share this with as many people as you can. People, including 90% of anonymous (sadly), are brainwashed and need to wake up. Do your own research. Don't believe the Corporate Criminals. Thank you for taking your time to read this message.

The two best presidents we have had since I was born are Clinton and Obama. They both have their faults but they both care.

That said, I have friends who are still fighting in some war. Not sure which two wars Obama ended, he should have ended the war in the Middle East... not likely to ever happen, no matter which president tries, but we can hope?

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.
