Key influences are not a surprise, as listeners may hear strands of Crosby Stills Nash and Young, the Nazz, and the Beatles. The playing is full of youthful energy and the band manages to balance out hard rockers with attractive folk-rock power ballads. Raspberries has a slight psychedelic hangover, as it begins with a phased drum intro and showcases some wigged out guitar playing. Good News, a song that begins with a telephone conversation, eventually segues into some pretty country-rock harmonies. The third track of the original lp is the real highlight of this very solid collection. The American Dream stood out from the local crowd with their strong, exciting songwriting and 3 guitar lineup.

However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one.
Todd Rundgren produced this lost Philadelphia band’s only album back in off the Ampex record label. The American Dream’s album blends power pop, lite psychedelia, blazing hard rockers, folk-rock and roots music effectively throughout its 12 songs (almost 50 minutes of good music!).
If you are American, SSC endorses voting in this presidential election. Andrew Gelman, Nate Silver, and Aaron Edlin calculate the chance that a single vote will determine the election ie break a tie in a state that breaks an Electoral College tie. It ranges from about one in ten million if you live in a swing state to one in a billion if you live in a very safe state. The average American has a one in sixty million chance of determining the election results.
The paper was from the election, which was a pro-Obama landslide; since this election is closer the chance of determining it may be even higher. But Presidents do shift budgetary priorities a lot. Neither of these are pure costs — Obamacare buys us more health care, and military presence in Iraq buys us [mumble] — but if you think these are less or more efficient ways to spend money than other possible uses, then they represent ways that having one President might be better than another.
In order to add signal rather than noise to the election results, we have to be better than the average voter.

The Bob Cesca Show is a funny, fast-paced political podcast that doesn’t take itself too seriously. I recorded the show in my car, parked at the intersection of Piner Rd and Coffey Ln, a few blocks from the devastation shown in the attached photo. The audio and show format are different due to recording on an iPhone without all of our usual fun noises, etc.

He wanted to see Enrique naked. Soon after, the men wake up to find a dead chicken on their car. Those in the Hustler store audience love it. At first glance, the reading seems fairly conventional — except for the fact that James Buchanan is not a man, she is a heterosexual mother of two, whose husband watches her read from the back of the room. They know Buchanan is a woman, just as they know that most gay-romance novels are written by women like her.
Which leads us to the other oddity on display at the Hustler store this night. The audience of some 20 is mostly female. In fact, most readers of gay-romance novels are — like most readers of straight-romance novels — women who devour page stories of men falling in and out of love with each other, all the while having abundant, glorious and oh-so-graphic sex.
With an eager audience urging them on, Buchanan and other female authors are reinventing the ages-old romance novel to accommodate — and accentuate — gay love. To read widely in this genre is to delve into the minds and hearts of male cops, detectives, private investigators, spies, assassins, pirates, sharpshooters and military officers who let nothing stand in the way of love.

Electrochemical[ edit ] Electrochemical biosensors are normally based on enzymatic catalysis of a reaction that produces or consumes electrons such enzymes are rightly called redox enzymes. The sensor substrate usually contains three electrodes ; a reference electrode , a working electrode and a counter electrode. The target analyte is involved in the reaction that takes place on the active electrode surface, and the reaction may cause either electron transfer across the double layer producing a current or can contribute to the double layer potential producing a voltage.
Kershaw is a world-renowned historian whose expertise is the Third Reich. The purpose of the biography is to provide a background and source-based account of Hitler’s life and career, described by him as “a study of Hitler’s power”.
They just hate gun owners. There are two blatant lies here, and I want to address both. But first, did you notice that not-so-subtle positive re-enforcement of the common stereotype liberals have of gun owners? Blatant lie 1 is the statement that no one in Washington is proposing national confiscation of firearms. In fact, let me just leave this here: Back when that interview was recorded, civilian disarmament fever was in its ascendancy.
The gun control activists could do no wrong, and just about any law they wanted to pass would have been A-OK with the American public. In the last couple decades, that reality has been turned on its head. But make no mistake, while the word may be absent the meaning is very much there. People with more guns tend to kill more people—with guns.

What do you think about Jethro Tull? It’s true that Jethro Tull are also one of those bands which are massive in a way, and yet hardly anyone you meet on the street will even know who they are like Yes, or Crimson, or, well, almost any Prog band – I guess that’s what’s called a “cult” band – they have a limited following, but boy, that limited following is a devoted following. It’s also funny how many people I’ve met who have heard of Jethro Tull who seem to share your views on them – a good band who did too much.
I don’t think they did enough, personally. Still, I’ve always thought that when it comes to art or music , it’s better for some people to love it rather than everyone to like it. For one thing, there’s always a Tull album that reflects the listening mood I’m in, thanx to the diversity of each album. I am one to listen to lyrics also, and Ian Anderson’s lyrics are some of the most intelligent and thought-provoking I’ve heard. I know quite a few people that either hate, or love, Jethro Tull.
And only a handful that just like them. Tull are just one of those groups you have to love or hate. And No, they can’t be loved by everyone. They don’t do that MOR stuff everyone loves to hear.
