Do Anthony Green fans even recognize a Deftones song when they hear it?? I'd say not, since they're sure singing along to the second song... Awesome that Anthony covered Diamond Eyes. Deftones have always been and always will be an incredible force in music. Coincidentally I snapped these two pics a week apart at the same venu of Anthony and Chino on the same wavelength: http://instagram.com/p/Xc0buoN6xl

Can someone please tell me what kind of spider this is? Third one in a week in my daughter's room. I am hoping it is not a recluse. I don't see a fiddle. But I've already had the exterminator come and obviously it didn't work, #spider #help #brownrecluse? #spiderseason

More and more, people are using their tablets, smartphones and laptops to consume TV programming. How does this affect TV advertising and what do advertisers need to do to ensure they are still reaching their target audience? YuMe and Nielsen recently teamed up to research the impact of multi-screen use by surveying how people who own multiple devices consume their media. They looked at household reach of multi-screen devices, the effect on reach...

Do not eat here unless you want to be ill. My boyfriend had lunch there today and has been ill all day/night following. He had the Caesar wrap and the salad bar and has been sick all day since. He also mentioned that it was very busy there and the service was slow/poor.

Rating a 2 due to lack of explained rules and regulations and because of the dangerously poorly padded foam pit. My 7 year old daughter and I went on Christmas Eve to check it out. We had a great time in the trampoline area--a lot of fun! But then I made the dumb suggestion to go try out the jousting over the foam pit. We were on the beam for a while before falling in. When my daughter fell in the foam pit, she landed on her ankle, passing through the foam, hitting the bottom and instantly spraining it. I saw no adult employees there, only teenagers. No one was explaining anything. No one seemed concerned as I dragged my injured child out of the foam pit. We did manage to get an ice pack before heading to the St. Luke's Anderson emergency room conveniently just down the road. The foam pit is posted as only 3 ft deep and no head first jumping into. My daughter is only 7 and landed feet first, a slow fall into the pit and she hit the bottom and was instantly injured. She was on crutches through Christmas and new year's and still on crutches today, greatly impeding her ability to participate in all her activities. All I ask is that they sit you down before you go in and explain all the dangers and rules, like they do so well at Bounce U. The teenagers that work there are everywhere but they are just on their iPhones and don't tell you anything about each area when you are first there. I just can't believe there isn't enough padding in and under the foam pit to prevent a 7 year old from spraining her ankle during a gentle fall into the foam pit. When we got to St. Luke's Anderson intake, the lady working said we were the fifth case that week from FreeFall. I just don't see how this place can stay open long unless they change their policies and beef up the duties of their young employees attending each area. Before we went, we had been planning to have my daughter's birthday party there this spring, but we definitely will not be now. My daughter doesn't even want to go back. It's not worth the dangers and they can't make it safer since their employees enforce and explain nothing. Moreover, no one at the time or since has expressed any concern about my daughter's injury there. I did report it before we left but the young girl at the counter said they don't record injuries anyway.

I get my eyebrows waxed here and they do an excellent job. Even though it is always busy they get me in and out fast, and, most importantly, my eyebrows look great. My daughter and I have treated ourselves to pedicures there on special occasion and they're great--polished toes last a long time--definitely worth it. Everyone who works there is very friendly and professional.

Not happy. My mother was using Freedom Lawn care to mow her lawn this summer. Then a few weeks ago, they just stopped coming and her grass grew very long. Also, the last time they mowed, there were several large patches of un-mowed grass throughout her yard. She attempted to call them several times after that to find out if they were coming or if she needed to just go buy a lawn mower. So finally today, I called to see what was going on...thinking maybe they would answer calls from someone else. Sure enough, the owner returned my call right away. He mentioned something about health issues (understandable) and that he left my mom a couple messages, but, "maybe she doesn't have an iPhone, they were text message" he said. Um, no, my mom is 70. Her phone number is a land line. So I asked him what was up and if they were going to be coming back to mow her lawn and he said, "no, we can no longer provide her service." And that was it. No other explanation whatsoever. I thought the whole thing very very odd. Definitely do NOT recommend this lawn care service! We'll be buying my mom a lawn mower soon and my boyfriend and I will just be mowing her lawn this summer.
