Dev is a singer from California who has turned out a a good deal of quality, pounding, sexed up club hits.
Her single "In The Dark" (above) was released this April and is still being pumped through radio in its original and remixed forms, the latter featuring Kanye West (below).
For the longest time I thought she was saying, “I’m only talkin to you if you wanna suck my C,” until I realized she was saying “surf my seas.” Whoops
Outside of “In The Dark,” Dev is probably best known as the girl that sings the chorus on "Like A G6" by Far East Movement featuring The Cataracs and herself.
"Dark" was also the second single off Dev’s The Night the Sun Came Up—the first was the equally friction-inspiring (though not as sleek) “Bass Down Low,” featuring The Cataracs (who also produced Dev’s album), that came out in December of last year.
Despite a pledge not to take money from lobbyists, President Obama has relied on prominent supporters who are active in the lobbying industry to raise millions of dollars for his re-election bid.
At least 15 of Mr. Obama’s “bundlers” — supporters who contribute their own money to his campaign and solicit it from others — are involved in lobbying for Washington consulting shops or private companies. They have raised more than $5 million so far for the campaign.
Because the bundlers are not registered as lobbyists with the Senate, the Obama campaign has managed to avoid running afoul of its self-imposed ban on taking money from lobbyists.
Lichtblau goes on to point out that Obama has been assisted financially by Sally Susman, an exec at pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, and David L. Cohen, “who oversees lobbying efforts for Comcast.” Both Susman and Cohen have reportedly raised over $500,000 apiece for the campaign.
Also made note of is the fact that no Republican candidate has even tried to distance himself from accepting money from federal lobbyists. So, while Republicans and the president are still basically doing the same thing, at least Obama has the decency to pretend he’s playing it straight—not that it really matters when you have a NYT article written about your implicit support from big business….
Explanation: What created the Waterfall Nebula? No one knows. The structure seen in the region of NGC 1999 in the Great Orion Molecular Cloud complex is one of the more mysterious structures yet found on the sky. Designated HH-222, the elongated gaseous stream stretches about ten light years and emits an unusual array of colors. One hypothesis is that the gas filament results from the wind from a young star impacting a nearby molecular cloud. That would not explain, however, why the Waterfall and fainter streams all appear to converge on a bright but unusual non thermal radio source located toward the upper left of the curving structure. Another hypothesis is that the unusual radio source originates from a binary system containing a hot white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole, and that the Waterfall is just a jet from this energetic system. Such systems, though, are typically strong X-rays emitters, and no X-rays have been detected. For now, this case remains unsolved. Perhaps well-chosen future observations and clever deductive reasoning will unlock the true origin of this enigmatic wisp in the future.
Janko Nilović (born 20 May 1941) is a Montenegrin pianist, poet and composer, who has lived in France since 1960.
He is one of those musicians who devote themselves to music fanatically, which resulted in a great number of published works, but most of them are on library labels not available for sale. His opus stretches from classical, jazz and funk to pop, psyche and easy listening.
Nilović, poet as well as musician, creates poetic musical images by bending the edges of styles, cross-pollinating them. Janko recorded many albums for the MONTPARNASSE 2000 library label which specializes in music for Radio and T.V., musical illustrators and Film Music clubs.
If you know anything about Nilovic, you known producer No I.D. sampled he and Dave Sucky’s song “In The Space” in order to craft the beat for Jay-Z’s “Death of Auto-Tune” hit. “Space” is off the album Psyc’ Impressions, 1970.
Nilovic’s work spans several decades and has seen the composer/pianist create music in many styles. He is interestingly—probably aptly—described by Cosmic Sounds London on this page, under Introduction.
Feminist author Naomi Wolf was arrested at a a protest in New York City outside an event hosted by the Huffington Post, at which New York governor Andrew Cuomo was being given the “game changer of the year” award. Cuomo, a Democrat, opposes a “millionaires tax.” Read the article at The Guardian.
Wolf is known for her nonfiction bestseller The Beauty Myth, published in 1991.
ZANESVILLE, Ohio (AP) – Schools closed and motorists were warned to stay in their vehicles as officers with assault rifles patrolled a rural area in eastern Ohio Wednesday, a day after police killed dozens of escaped animals from a wild-animal preserve, where the owner was found dead.
It was unclear how many animals remained on the property when he died, but he had said in a bankruptcy filing in May 2010 that he owned four tigers, a lion, eight bears and 12 wolves. The U.S. Department of Agriculture had revoked his license to exhibit animals after animal-welfare activists campaigned for him to stop letting people wrestle with another one of his bears.
There are clear similarities between Klarwein and American artist Alex Grey, whose website says that he is “best known for his paintings which portray multiple dimensions of reality, interweaving biological anatomy with psychic and spiritual energies.”
Grey, known in part for his strong association with the band Tool, founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM), a church and nonprofit organization located in Wappingers Falls, NY, with wife Allyson.
Before CoSM, however, Klarwein had the Aleph Sanctuary, a chapel originally operating as “a portable 3 x 3 x 3 metre cubic temple made out of various metals and wood and panelled with 68 original paintings of various sizes.” Built between 1963 and 1970, the Aleph was later dismantled to remove its original paintings. It was rebuilt in 1992 “using aluminium diatrans and plexiglass panels lit by rows of fluorescent tubes.”
