In Better News… Hotline for Reporting Crimes Committed by “Illegal Aliens” Gets Trolled

From Gizmodo

Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security launched a new hotline to “assist victims of crimes committed by criminal aliens.” The resulting “fuck you!” from average Americans was swift and hilarious.

Less than a day into its pitiful existence, the VOICE hotline has been rendered unusable by tipsters claiming to have seen criminal aliens of the extraterrestrial kind. I called four times. Twice all operators were unavailable. The other two attempts resulted in a busy signal. Other concerned citizens seeking to report a mothership streaking across the sky were told the line was closed despite calling during normal business hours.

(I really need a video of excessive laughter to post here. Any suggestions?)

Self Care – Recipe! African Peanut Soup

This isn’t my recipe, but it’s one I’ve made multiple times. And guess what?

Yup, you read that right.

It’s vegan.

Though I hope you aren’t allergic to peanuts. If you are, stay away from this one…

Sorry for the lack of pictures on this one, though. If I manage to get time to make it again, I’ll add pictures to the post.

So… without further ado… African Peanut Soup.

Self Care – Nick and the Grooves Play Don’t Talk

Nick Edelstein is actually a family friend, and one of my all-time favorite guitarists. I even got to play with him at a number of shows. The following song is one of my absolute favorites by him. It also, incidentally, features drums written and played by my brother Aaron.

The guitar solo is one of those that builds… it starts slow and easy, and becomes stronger and stronger until it shreds. It starts at 4:00 and ends at 5:59. It’s so damn good…
