Not Doing much today, going to a show tonight
so there is only two post today

Today Show[11/29]
How to Tie a Tie

We’ve seen enough “business casual” pass through this office to know one thing: not enough guys know how to tie their ties properly (or if they do, they only know the first knot they ever learned). Well, we can’t accept this lazy and sloppy behavior any more! It’s time for some fashion boot camp. Now drop and give me twenty!

Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday is supposed to be the biggest online shopping day of the year (at least, that’s what the retailers want us to believe). This clip was unearthed from MFNN (Mahalo Fake News Network) yesterday, and it shows the massive effect that Cyber Monday had on the Internet economy. Or… not.

Today Show[11/28]:
How to Play Guitar for Newbies

After months of playing Guitar Hero (II and III), we assumed that graduating to an actual guitar wouldn’t be too difficult, right? Unfortunately, it’s harder than video games make it look. While learning the chords and basics isn’t too difficult for even the least musically inclined of students, creating a decent sounding song can take years. But hey… that’s why we call it “For Newbies!”

Finals Week

When we think of the month of December, holidays are usually what comes to mind. However, for the segment of the population still in high school or college, it means another far more dreaded activity: final exams. On today’s show we give you some tips for surviving finals week and cramming that brain of yours full of knowledge (but whether or not you retain that info after holiday break is a totally different matter).

Breaking Culture News

Hawthorne Heights Guitarist Dies Of Unknown Causes a day after there Detroit Gig

this is a tought one to report today aqfter i read this on the myspace page message board and with a lot of follow up reporting via web sites in DC and Dayton, OH

but this is very sad and shocking

This From

Hawthorne Heights guitarist Casey Calvert, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene on Saturday after police were called to the band's tour bus outside Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club around 2:30 p.m. and found him unconscious. The Washington Post reported that Calvert's death came one day after he and his bandmates boarded the bus to begin their Wintour 2007 outing, which kicked off Friday night in Detroit. Police are awaiting results of an autopsy.

On the group's Web site, fellow band members announced the death of their "quirky and awesome best friend," who they said had "passed away in his sleep."

"Today is probably the worst day ever," the group wrote. "It's with our deepest regrets that we have to write this. Casey Calvert passed away in his sleep last night. We found out this afternoon before sound-check. We've spent the entire day trying to come to grips with this and figure out as much as possible. At this time we're not sure what exactly happened. Just last night he was joking around with everyone before he went to bed. We can say with absolute certainty that he was not doing anything illegal. Please, out of respect to Casey and his family, don't contribute or succumb to any gossip you may hear. We don't want his memory to be tainted in the least. Casey was our best friend. He was quirky and awesome and there will truly be no others like him! His loss is unexplainable. As soon as we know more we will let you know. Sincerely, Hawthorne Heights: Eron, JT, Micah and Matt."

the show they play in detroit was the Majestic Theater on Friday night in the detroit midtown area and acccording to reports this was the first gig of there winter tour.

so this is kind of shocking to say the least.

beleave it or not i was at the stick area myself seeing the hard Lessions at the stick at the same buliding, now since i am not a fan of the band or a fan of emo music itself, i did not go.

now i know it this is devploeing
