Unknown SKA/Norse Metal type song

Someone sent me this mp3, but they got it off a radio program so I don't know who actually plays it. Having no words, it makes it all the more difficult. Who are these guys and where can I buy their album?

Also, I'm not sure which one of these links will work. I've been getting plugin related errors when making sound html code, but maybe that's just my computer.

Your significant other tells you s/he still masturbates to and fantasizes about her/his ex. S/He admits to browsing her/his facebook for pictures to fuel her/his actions.

How do you respond?

dk/dc I can't find my Serenity DVD and I desperately want to watch it. Do I rent it from iTunes and watch it in hopes of finding the copy soon, or do I just buy it on iTunes and deal with it? Or do I be a grown up and just wait until I can get to a store to buy a physical copy since I hate movies that I only have a digital copy of? (hint: i do not like being a grown up)

Do you refrain from correcting people at times to avoid seeming like a pompous ass? How wrong does someone have to get before you'll say something?

I hate it when people use the term 'modern art' incorrectly, but I know most people don't care so I keep mum (mostly). Unless the person is trying to act like a cultural hotshot.

Have you ever heard of the Choking Game? Do you know anyone who does it??? I am watching an episode of Criminal Minds about it and apparently this is a real thing that kids do.

TQC, I have exhausted all the usual "college student home for summer" retail job spots here in my town, and no one is hiring (damn high school students taking up all the jobs *brandishes cane*).  I'm also a little stupid when it comes to thinking outside the box.

What are some places to apply that aren't everyday run-of-the-mill retail spots?  I mean seriously, the more ridiculous the better, too, because I'm looking to broaden my horizons and open myself to work I wasn't aware even existed.

If you could work ANYWHERE, where would it be?

awesome sightings

What's the last thing you witnessed that was both completely unexpected and totally awesome?

The other night I was sitting outside watching the cutest little ring tail possum scampering around one of the trees in my garden. I was sitting very still so I wouldn't spook it when suddenly a beautiful red fox walked right past me.
It was amazing- the fox was only a few feet from where I was sitting- he just wandered past, sat down in my garden and then got up and quietly disappeared into the undergrowth.
I have never seen a fox close up before, it made my night :D

I have an interview at 9:30am today for a full time marketing position at a restaurant. I feel pretty prepared, but I'm really nervous. Do you have any tips for me?


I think the interview went really well. The best part was when he asked me what reservations if any I would have about working for the company and I said "Well my only concern is that I would get really fat from all the awesome food there" and he laughed a lot and then talked to me about salary. They said the next step is a writing sample which I have no problems with, and a design sample. Yay!!

New questions:

Will you tell me about the best/worst interview you have ever had?

 What happened to LJ notifying you when someone de-friends you?  That was an awesome feature! I just had a couple people de-friend me and I had no idea. I don't even know how long ago it happened, so I can't even tell after what entry, or if it was after a long period of not posting, or what. Why doesn't LJ send you a notice anymore? Anyone have a clue?

Edit: It is a paid account function!!! Mystery Solved!

So, since we figured out that answer, new question:

Why did you de-friend the last person you deleted from your friends list? If you've never taken anyone off LJ, what about Facebook? or in real life?

How do you pay your bills? Do you write checks and mail them in, make payments online, automatic bill payment from a bank acct/credit card, or pay at the location (if there is one)?

I pay everything online except rent because I can't and my husband always writes checks.

As I stated last night, I am planning to travel Europe by train for a week or so this summer. I'm going to have a backpack with my laptop and clothes, etc, in it. What would be the best backpack for this? I've been googling and searching random backpack stores, but I don't really know what I'm looking for. Or should I just use my regular laptop backpack?

Help in the Kitchen

Help me out, TCQ - I bought a big square loaf of sourdough bread at the grocery store. I needed a change of pace from plain old white bread. But now, I have no idea what to put on it.

Is sourdough better toasted or untoasted?

What are some good sandwich toppings, meats, or cheeses to use in sourdough sandwiches?

Does anyone put egg or avacado on their sandwiches and if so, how does it taste?

I'm usually a picky eater, so I'd love to get some suggestions.

For lunch, you walk into a restaurant whose theme is baked potatoes. You can get a side salad and a regular baked Idaho russet OR a baked sweet potato and any toppings your little heart desires, including but not limited to buffalo chicken, beef brisket and gravy, chili (vegetarian or with meat), broccoli, truffle oil, shaved truffles, sour cream, crumbled bacon, a variety of salad dressings, diced tomatoes, jalapenos, any kind of cheese you can think of, clam chowder, salsa, sliced grilled steak, sauteed mushrooms and shallots, onions (raw or carmelized), chives and other chopped herbs, maple syrup, pecans, etc. What are you going to get on your potato?

Dear TQC,

For a wedding shower gift I got gift certificates to the salon my future sister in law works at. I got one for a mani, pedi, and my hair cut and colored. I am so thankful for these things and I am going on Saturday to get my hair done. I don't get married till June 12th, so I was going to wait to get my nails done till June 11th. The mani is not for acrylics, and I was going to get acrylics for my wedding because they are so much more fun (I have tiny nails and they are brittle and I hate them). Acrylics cost $27 MORE at this place, which I think is disgusting because normally I pay $30 for them at my regular place. Should I pay the difference? I don't want to have teeny tiny nails for my wedding.

What is with this place having such high prices for something that I normally pay $30 and looks amazing?

I'm on a super strict diet. One of my protein options is egg whites. I hate the thought of separating a ton of eggs only to throw away the yolks, so I bought liquid egg whites. I haven't tried them yet.

Have you ever eaten liquid egg whites? Are they gross?

If you think that I should just separate eggs instead of buying the expensive liquid egg whites, what are some possible alternative uses for the yolks?

What's the best way of quitting a job without 2 weeks notice. Its not like this is a great job, so I'm not too worried about it... and they're planning on "letting me go" next month because I'm not getting/making enough people sign up for credit cards (I refuse to pester people after they say the word "no"). Its retail, and I've never really quit a job before without giving 2 weeks notice.

Do I just call our HR lady and say "oh hay, BTW I'm quitting, byes"... should I talk to her today and say "I'm not going to make it in after today because I don't like the policies of the store"... Or what? I guess I'm asking the most professional way to do this without sounding like a COMPLETE jerk (I already understand I'm being a jerk for not giving 2 weeks). I'd rather do it over the phone, but that's because I hate doing this thing face to face (I'm a wimp).

Will you help me decide what to do?
Will you tell me how you have quit your job without giving 2 weeks (if you have, of course)?

How many hours without sleep will you still go to work on?
I've been awake since yesterday at 8am and I have yet to sleep. I work another overnight tonight and wont be attempting to sleep until 9am tomorrow morning. Working overnights fucks me up! boo.

social networking.

what is your opinion of the current omnipresence/popularity of social networking sites like facebook and twitter, and myspace a few years ago?

a lot of little kids have twitters and facebook profiles now, not just teens and young adults, and social networking is now a prominent part of news channels trying to allow their viewers to interact, like CNN, etc.). 

would you agree that, generally, it speaks to a vanity or self-importance in our generation, that people feel the need to have their say about everything?  why do you think so many people are interested in posting about what they're doing and how they're feeling at all times?

ETA: what kind of a long-term effect do you think the prevalence of these platforms will have on people/our society? (i.e. shorter attention spans, bigger entitlement complexes)

 Hey TQC. So my boyfriend's friends just flaked out on him (they had planned to go to a local casino for his birthday, and the thing had been planned for a month now). Obviously he has lame-ass friends. How does he go about making new ones? How did you meet your current group of friends? He doesn't work, but he does go to school, and I'm sure there's hobby groups or something he could join as well. I'm just looking for personal stories here, really. 

Any awful flaky friend stories you feel like sharing tonight? 

Alternatively, what amazing methods of payback should we carry out for this act of butt-headery? Srs and non-srs answers welcome!

Hi all,

I'm in the process of buying a car (maybe) and I eyed a 2008 Suzuki Swift

The payments are 105 bi-weekly, which I can afford but I'm having trouble finding a good insurance company because:

A) I'm 20
B) I'm Male
C) I rear-ended someone three years ago :(

So I was getting outrageous quotes such as $11,000 a year! That's 1/3 of my gross annual income! The cheapest quote I got however was $200 a month. I can afford it because I have a good job but I still thought it was too much for this point in my life. I need a car, but not that bad.

So I got over my car buying obsession and told the dealership that I can't afford the insurance and they offered to pay half of the first year insurance. So I'll be paying a little over 300 a month of a car payment plus insurance which I think is good. But I wanted to ask if you think it's a good idea? I also wanted to ask if any of you drive or have driven Suzuki cars and what was your experience with them?

PS: I test drove it and took it to a mechanic (who is a friend of mine) and he said that the car is in excellent shape and has no leaks or any kind of damages/bad parts.

So today while I was taking a break at work, a 'deaf' man came up to me and another customer and gave us this yellow slip of paper with the sign language alphebet on the back, and requesting one dollar donations. I felt sorry for him and gave him two bucks. My supervisor told him he had to leave, and I felt bad for him.

So, when I told my co workers about it(Complaining about how my supervisor acted) they told me that he was a scam artist. He had been playing the deaf game for years, and shiz. So, he scammed two bucks out of me. :/

Maybe he needed the money?
Anyhow, my question is, has anything like this happened to you? Please enlighten me so I don't feel like a freaking idiot anymore.

1. so like while we're talking about graduation money I'll ask this question that my mom asked me before

So, a lot of my friends are graduating college and some of them have sent graduation announcements or whatever out to people, including me and my parents. They're basically asking for $$ right?

2. Also, when you drive, do you ever use your brights? and if so, do you turn them off when other people drive past you or are in front of you?

3. Also a car thing- do you know what the game "playing London" is about?
