If I said that 70,000 to 80,000 emergency room visits per year were attributable to one weapon, you'd say we need to consider whether this weapon should be illegal, right?
Well...this 'weapon' is actually treated more like a kids toy. It's your typical BB gun or air rifle. And every year, a lot of them for Christmas, they are given to children who may be even too young to attend Kindergarten.
And recently an 18 year old from Ovid was shot and killed by an air rifle.
Coachella 2012 is going to be another blockbuster year for the festival. Firstly, their lineup has sparked so much interest that it killed their website, Coachella.com.
Secondly, They're doing something different. They're going to be doing the same lineup for TWO weekends instead of one. So tickets might be much easier to come by this year relative to last year when they sold out in a week.
Rick Santorum is riding high. His showing at the Iowa Caucasus brought him nearly neck in neck with frontrunner Mitt Romney. The popularity helped him to raise $1 million in campaign financing in a single day soon afterwards.
Overall, his work to become the Republican nominee for president is going very well and could yield results.
But no matter how it goes, he'll always have his 'santorum' problem.
Gay rights advocates disapproved of some comments he made concerning gay marriage so they sought to link his name with something...unfortunate.
Odd, she also seems to have the body most men want too!
Seriously though, Yahoo did a poll of women and found that most women want to have a body like Jennifer Aniston's. Oddly, no one seemed to want Angelina Jolie's body. That would make more sense since she stole the hell out of Aniston's Dreamboat, aka Brad Pitt.
Marietta has excellent taste in music even if it veers into the weird side of things sometimes. Here's one of the tools she uses to stay up on the latest music:
Do any of you guys use last.fm? I dearly hope so. But for those of you who don’t, let me tell you a bit about it. Last.fm is like a facebook/Pandora combo for music. It’s one of my favorite websites and I’m completely obsessed with it. Last.fm keeps track of whatever you listen to on your computer or mobile device and puts it on your profile. Just like facebook, you can have friends on last.fm and you see their statistics, such what artists they listen to the most and what songs they’ve listened to recently. From the music you listen to, last.fm will also recommend you new artists. And similar to Pandora, you can make various radio stations based off an artist or genre, or even a friend’s music library. You favorite bands have their own last.fm pages which will show you how many people listen to them and their most popular songs. Events are also listed on the website, including concerts and music festivals closest to you.
That was probably a terrible summary… the obvious solution is for you to go to http://www.last.fm/home and check it out for yourself. If you do wind up making yourself a last.fm account or if you already have one, you can look up alegria7adriann and see what you think of my music.
Well. I hope that is at least somewhat interesting. If not, here’s a song I’ve been obsessing over. It’s kinda weird, but I like weird.
*SPAN'S NOTE* This song is AWESOME. Marietta has picked a solid recommend. Again.
Why is Marietta the Intern so into Of Mice And Men? I have no idea. But she attempts to explain in this blog post:
When I came into the station the other day I was greeted by a wonderful surprise! The single for one of my favorite new bands had arrived! The CD was just sitting there, with the words “Of Monsters and Men – ‘Little Talks’” printed on it. I was absolutely ecstatic! I asked Span about it right away and he told me he’d listened to it, but wasn’t really wild about it. Needless to say, I wasn’t thrilled with that response. Thus this blog post! I want you to love Of Monsters and Men because they are absolutely amazing! And who knows, they could be on air soon, you never know!
