      Southern Culture on the Skids

      The Chapel Hill, NC trio Southern Culture On The Skids has been spreading the rock and roll gospel since 1983. Rick Miller – guitar/vox, Mary Huff – bass/vox and Dave Hartman – drums, play a greasy mix of surf, rockabilly, R&B and country fried garage with a side of psych. It's a musical gumbo Miller calls, "Americana from the wrong side of the tracks." For over 30 years, the band have toured everywhere from the NC Prison System to Mt. Fuji, Japan, delivering what Rolling Stone calls "a hell raising rock and roll party."
      Since 1983, when they formed in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, SCOTS have played their unique hybrid of Americana, surf, R&B, rockabilly, and swamp pop (the band describes their sound as "toe sucking geek rock – kinda weird, but it feels good when you're doing it"), all the while driving fans into ecstatic, sweat-drenched paroxysms of joy. Assisted by his cohorts in chaos – drummer Dave Hartman and bassist/singer/heartbreaker Mary Huff – Miller and crew have been prolific and ubiquitous for over twenty years.
      New for 2015, Southern Culture On The Skids and Fred Schneider of the B-52's announced their first-ever collaborative 12" remix EP, Party At My Trouse on YepRoc records! This 12" nugget of colored vinyl, also available as a digital download, features remixes by THE UPTOWN EXPLOSION (Alap Momin and Jon Spencer) and DJ King Smoothie.
      SCOTS have done almost everything in their 30-year career, except this – a 12" Dance Mix single with Fred Schneider. One hot week in August Fred, Rick, Mary and Dave met up at The Kudzu Ranch in rural NC to record an ode to butt shakin' – "PARTY AT MY TROUSE" B/W the slinky chaser "HEY MARY" which was released for Record Store Day 2014 as a 7" single. Millions of fans missed out on the 2014 limited edition, so by popular demand the band and Fred decided to extend the boogie into the night with a 12" EP featuring 5 brand new booty-shakin', southern-fried, jukin' remixes!
      In 2013 Southern Culture on the Skids re-recorded and updated every SCOTS original song from 1994's classic Ditch Diggin' and released Dig This on CD/LP/digital through the band's own Kudzu Records.
      Singer/guitarist, Rick Miller recalls the inspiration, "We have a drainage ditch that runs by the Kudzu Ranch that had been left unattended for so long it was not doing its job. I decided to dig a new ditch or at least upgrade the old ditch. I was dragging tree limbs, shoveling the muck, looking for turtles and watching for snakes and humming the riff to "Ditch Diggin'." That is when it dawned on me that it had been almost 20 years since we recorded the album of the same name, and all those songs could use an upgrade to 2013 specs just like this ditch I am sweating over right now, but instead of a shovel – I'd use a guitar. Easier on the back!"
      From their 1985 debut Voodoo Beach Party, to the international smash, 1998's Dirt Track Date (featuring the hit single "Camel Walk"), and on to the shake-a-butt dance party of Party At My Trouse Southern Culture on the Skids have continued to throw what Rolling Stone dubbed "a hell raising rock and roll party." Their 2005 live outing, Doublewide and Live!, captured all of this on tape, dirty, rough, wild and above all fun!! 2010 saw the band's first self-release, The Kudzu Ranch, plus the reissue of their classic 1991 album, Too Much Pork For Just One Fork. In 2011 the band released the out of print 1996 Santo Swings EP digitally for the first time ever on Cinco de Mayo. And in fall 2011 Zombified, Southern Culture On The Skids' tribute to the horror and exploitation movies that populated Southern theaters and drive-ins during the 60s and 70s, was re-released. Originally released in Australia as an eight song EP in 1998, the Zombified Extended Release is now a full LP with the addition of five new tunes.

    8. The Struts -Made Violent
      Event on 2016-05-10 20:00:00

      The Struts

      A UK-bred band full of reckless swagger and hugely catchy hooks, the Struts are returning the sweet and dirty spirit of glam to modern rock & roll. Having already taken Europe by storm with such feats as opening for the Rolling Stones before a crowd of 80,000 in Paris last year, the newly L.A.-based four-piece is now breaking through to American audiences with their exhilarating debut EP Have You Heard.

      With their glitzy-yet-scrappy aesthetic—not to mention frontman Luke Spiller’s snarling vocals and otherworldly range—the Struts might seem to have stepped straight out of the ‘70s. But as proven on lead single “Could Have Been Me” (a thrillingly anthemic track that’s racked up more than two million plays on Spotify and shot to the top ten on Modern Rock radio charts), The Struts fuel their high-powered sound with an urgency that’s entirely of the moment.

      On Have You Heard, Spiller and bandmates Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass), and Gethin Davies (drums) match their super-sharp melodies and bright and shiny guitar riffs with a lyrical sensibility both heartfelt and brash. Made in collaboration with the likes of Gregg Alexander (a producer/songwriter and former frontman of the New Radicals), the EP kicks off with “Could Have Been Me” and unleashes a surge of raw energy that never lets up. With its driving rhythm and chant-along refrain (“I wanna taste love and pain/I wanna feel pride and shame/I don’t wanna take my time/I don’t wanna waste one line”), the arena-ready track finds the Struts staking their claim for glory while inspiring every listener to do just the same.

      From there, Have You Heard slips into “Kiss This,” a breakup song that forgoes the minor-chord moping for gritty guitar and fantastically scathing lyrics ("I did all I could/So kiss this one more time ‘cause I'm gone for good"). “‘Kiss This’ was inspired by a relationship breakdown/meltdown,” says Spiller. “It’s about being cheated on, but the message is really about standing up for yourself—sort of our version of a ‘Young Hearts Run Free’-type song, but in a rock mentality.”

      On “Put Your Money on Me” (recorded with Alexander during a road trip from Darby to the south of Spain, in a van filled with “lots of booze and lots of stories,” as Spiller puts it), the Struts let loose with hip-shaking rhythms and a soulful groove. And closing out Have You Heard is “Where Did She Go,” a lovesick but infectiously stomping epic that first came to life when Spiller was just 15. “My parents had just moved to this horrible seaside town, which wasn’t a great place to be if you’ve got long hair or you’re just an individual in any way,” he recalls. “One night I was walking home quite drunk and started singing to myself, as you do, and this melody eventually came to me. I remember thinking, ‘What kind of melody could you get a whole football stadium full of people to sing along to?’, and then going from that. I sang it to myself the whole way to keep it in my head, and then I got home and wrote it all down.”

      The founding members of the Struts, Spiller and Slack each began making music as teenagers, initially finding inspiration in groups like Oasis and the Libertines and then tracking their idols’ influences to discover the classic glam bands that would one day shape their own sound. Introduced by their mutual manager after the dissolution of their previous bands, the two had an instant creative chemistry and quickly began writing together. “When we first started, we both just wanted to make fun, happy rock songs with big choruses—the kind of thing that bands like Slade and T. Rex used to do,” says Slack. Once Elliott and Davies were added to the lineup, the four moved into a house together in Derby and soon found themselves a name. “We were in rehearsals and someone saw me strutting around as we were playing, and made the suggestion that we call ourselves the Struts,” says Spiller. “We loved that from day one—it absolutely represents what we’re about.”

      Largely on the strength of their electrifying live show, the Struts fast built up a major following and started selling out shows all across Europe. Along with landing the Stade de France gig with the Rolling Stones, the band took the stage at the 2014 Isle of Wight Festival, with Spiller decked out in a shimmering-blue cape custom-made for him by Zandra Rhodes (the legendary designer who formerly created costumes for Queen’s Freddie Mercury and Brian May). In the meantime, the Struts kept on honing their songcraft and developing new material, forging a sound that gives a nod to their glam roots and ultimately revamps the genre for a whole new era. “It’s cool to think of kids hearing this kind of music for the first time, and then going back and getting into that same rock & roll that we fell in love with,” notes Slack.

      Now at work on following up Have You Heard with a full-length album, the Struts are also in the midst of their first stateside tour, having added more dates and upgraded to bigger venues in response to their rapidly growing fanbase. As in the studio, the band aims to infuse their live performance with plenty of passion and flash. “We’re not afraid to go out there and really put on a show, get everyone in the crowd involved,” says Slack. And in that building that connection, the Struts aspire for nothing less than blissed-out transcendence. “I don’t see any other point of going to a rock show than to really get into the music and lose your inhibitions,” says Spiller. “When we’re up onstage we try to bear that in mind, to push the audience and get up close with them and challenge any self-consciousness they might be feeling. We want to do what we can so that everyone can let go and just have a great time.”

    12. Bloc Party
      Event on 2016-05-15 20:00:00
      with The Vaccines
      HYMNS is a rebirth for Bloc Party. After 16 years as a band, countless world tours and awards and four studio albums, Kele Okereke and Russell Lissack are taking it back to where it all began.As the title suggests, the fifth Bloc Party record is about faith and devotion, but it is not, Kele insists, a religious epiphany. I grew up in a religious house so Im fully aware of the imagery, but Im not Christian. Its not something I subscribe to. Instead, the concept came to him after seeing the author Hanif Kureishi, whom Kele has admired since he was at school, talk at the Southbank Centre in London. The author of My Beautiful Laundrette and Intimacy was discussing evangelical art and how unfashionable it has become. And that point stuck with me because it seemed like for me music had originated in a religious place. The first music I ever heard was hymns at school. I started to think, if I was going to make music that had a spiritual dimension, that was sacred to me and to the things that I held important, how would I do it? says Kele.The result is a record that sounds like a band growing and changing, pushing new sounds via new approaches, and resulting in more free, less constricted Bloc Party. When we started this band, we were all about being loud and spiky, and all the sounds had to confront, Kele explains. With the way I sang, the way the drums had to fill every moment, was very confrontational. After making Four, which was very abrasive, I wanted to make something more sensual, that took you in and hugged you, rather than hit you around the face. It was nice to let the atmospheres take over, to pull everything back, as opposed to it being a fight, or a dueling match.To get to the point of being able to make another album, however, the band had to navigate a tumultuous few years. They took a hiatus after their third album Intimacy, in 2009, during which time Kele focused on his solo career and DJ-ing, and Russell formed his band Pin Me Down, and joined Ash. They returned in 2012 with Four, and a subsequent world tour, during which original drummer Matt Tong stepped away. He was followed a year later by bassist Gordon Moakes.Weve had break of two years now, explains Russell. We got to a point where the lineup had to change to allow us to go forward. Kele adds, It was clear at the end of 2013 that it just wasnt working. If Matt and Gordon hadnt left, we wouldnt have carried on as Bloc Party. Its the most awesome job in the world, being in a band, being able to create music and art and it affect people. It makes me feel sad that I felt back then that it was something I was going to walk away from. I never want to feel like that again.Kele and Russell soon realised that a new album was inevitable. Bloc Party started with just Kele and I, and we used to write the songs together, and we found other people and grew from that. It feels like thats happened again, says Russell. They started writing together, just the two of them, in 2014, and were joined at various stages by the two new members who have made Bloc Party a four-piece again: bassist Justin Harris, whom the band met in his previous guise as part of the Portland indie rock band Menomena, and drummer Louise Bartle, a 21-year-old that the pair discovered on YouTube, and who blew us away. Its good to have someone bringing that energy of doing it for the first time. Its made us all excited about going forward.Their enthusiasm for this new period in the bands life is palpable. Now weve written this record and met two brilliant people, its flowering again, says Russell. Were really excited about the songs and were desperate for people to hear them and to start performing them.HYMNS marks a departure for the band sonically, too, with Kele and Russell trying sounds and approaches that they have never previously explored. You can hear the space in the record, and its space that wouldnt have been there if wed tried to write it with four of us in the room, says Kele.Its still a very live record, adds Russell. Everything has been played, though it doesnt necessarily sound like that. We both take a lot of influence from electronic music, for example, and then try to bring that into a completely different environment. Kele is astounded at the results. What Russell is doing now is completely blowing my mind. Hes using the guitar as an instrument of white noise, as well as a melodic tool. Im super-excited about getting this music in front of people.Kele says that in order to get himself into the headspace to write again, he cut himself off from the modern world. He had already left his east London home and moved to Brixton – another transformative experience, and one that allowed him the time and space for a domestic life – but in order to work on HYMNS properly, I put myself in a bubble. It there where he found the hymns of his childhood, the Florida Gospel duo The Consolers, Talk Talk's 'Spirit of Eden' and Stevie Wonders Songs in the Key of Life. The track The Good News came from that exploration. Ultimately, its about heartbreak and looking for the strength to carry on, which is a very powerful motivation for people, he says. Its about the idea that you need to keep going.The Love Within starts with a line fans may recognise from The Prayer, the first single from second album A Weekend in the City: Lord give me grace and dancing feet. It was at that point that Kele first realised the influence of religion on his work, so it made sense to revisit it. As much as I try to deny or hide it, it plays a big part in me as a songwriter. He says the song came to him when he watched Stevie Wonder perform at a festival in Alabama. He said the nature of religion wasnt about god, or allah, its about handing yourself over and making space for the divine.Only He Can Heal Me is the first song that came from Russell and Keles writing sessions for this album. Russell drew on a stuttering, 2-step-inspired sound, while Kele saw it as a choral work. I always knew that there would be a gospel choir on the track but I wanted to use the voices in a different way, giving the track a more baroque feel. Its about the idea of salvation, whether thats found in a temple, or in your lovers arms. It was the first song that gave them an indication of what HYMNS as a whole would sound like, says Russell. He felt more like a DJ than a guitarist, and it showed both of them that their maximalist inclinations could be reined in to beautiful effect.Into the Earth came later in the process. Russell describes it as easy-going, which is funny because that song is me thinking about my death, says Kele. Ive never really contemplated that in the music Ive made, but maybe its where I am in my life, where I live. Its about growing old with someone and hoping this is the path youre on for the rest of your life. Theres a line in the song, Rock n Roll has got so old, which sums up that sense of moving on and changing. Thats a reference to the person I was when we started, and I dont really want to be any more, he explains.Exes is the most minimal track on HYMNS. It is simply, says Kele, an apology, to the people Ive hurt along the way. Its for all the people Ive not been so good to as a friend or as lover. As a musician I know I can be quite selfish – I can put my way above everything else. And sometimes that can make you lose sight of what is important around you.And despite some turmoil, both Kele and Russell are happy Bloc Party has kept going. I realised that I want to do this, says Kele. I want to travel the world and I want to enjoy it all. In my mind, I wanted to prove something. In HYMNS, they have done just that.Bloc Party are Kele Okereke (vocals, guitar), Russell Lissack (guitar), Justin Harris (bass) and Louise Bartle (drums).

    14. Hippo Campus
      Event on 2016-05-06 20:30:00
      with Riothorse Royale
      A strange thing happens when freshwater and saltwater rub up against each other. In the ocean, when left undisturbed, the two kinds of water will separate into strata that are all but indiscernible from above or belowand when a deep-sea diver is swimming upwards, thinking theyre just about to come up for air, theyll actually hit another layer of clearer, fresher water that separates them from the atmosphere. Its a beguiling effect that scientists call the halocline. For the band Hippo Campus, the idea of the halocline has taken on a profound meaning. Having just graduated high school in 2013, the four members of the band teeter in that precarious place between being a kid and being a fully independent adult; though they have been kicking their legs as hard as they can to rise above murky waters of adolescent angst, a whole new echelon of complications lingers just overhead. we rose in the morning confused by what we were mourning for some things are better left in the adolescence of youth (Opportunistic) The quartet have grasped the halocline like a mantra, using it as their handle on social media and as an inspiration for their lyrics. Its the illusion of growing up, says Hippo Campuss guitarist and co-lyricist, Nathan Stocker. Like, you dont ever, really. Its just all these things that happen that sort of signify adulthood, suddenly. And with that idea in mind, theyve figured out how to perfectly capture that mixture of longing, aimlessness, and eternal hope that consumes all young people transitioning from adolescence to adulthood on their debut EP, Bashful Creatures, and its follow-up South. We really liked high school, bassist Zach Sutton notes, laughing. As their backstory unravels, its easy to understand why: The four young men in Hippo Campus first met while attending the St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists, a rigorous charter school in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota that prepares music students for the fast track to college conservatories and it quickly positioned music at the very center of their young lives. american eyes cheery cheeks and bloodshot eyes american eyes see good on earth, and truth in lies (Violet) Music is such a vague thing. Its very subjective, its very sentimental, its very abstract, Nathan muses. So a lot of people probably dont have any sort of training to actually talk about it, you know. And so going to a conservatory, we were able to develop our tongue, I guess, so we could communicate more easily. Not necessarily when we jam, because thats all feeling. But when were trying to decipher what it all means, thats where the language can come in handy. Its a pretty mutual understanding. Nathan, Zach, and drummer Whistler Allen all participated in the schools jazz program, while Hippo Campuss lead singer, Jake Luppen, studied classical music and developed his voice by singing opera. Studying classical music allows you to adjust your voice to get multiple tones, similar to a guitar or any other physical instrument. It's like another way of singing. Jake notes. Anyone who has heard Luppen sing knows exactly what hes talking about: he approaches melodies in swooping lines, making octave jumps and sudden high notes look effortless. The playful elasticity of his voice is at the very center of Hippo Campuss bright, optimistic, and emotionally resonant sound, and his melodies play a starring role. wise me talk the same way my mother taught me i walk the same way my father told me back straight, chest out, just like a soldier back straight, chest out, just like a soldier (South) In addition to their prescient lyrics and buoyant melodies, Hippo Campus have quickly earned a reputation for their rock-solid live shows and the impressive way they can build toward enormous crests before breaking apart into glistening four-part harmonies. Even in the Twin Cities, where the band quickly trampolined from playing all-ages shows to sharing stages with the towns largest acts on the citys biggest stages, its not uncommon to overhear the exasperated question, Who are these guys and where did they come from?? In the course of just over a year, Hippo Campus have skyrocketed. In the Twin Cities, they became darlings of their local radio station, 89.3 The Current, playing the stations 10th anniversary bash at First Avenue in January. The first time they toured outside of Minnesota at SXSW, they created such a buzz that they wrapped up their week playing Suicide Saturday for none other than Conan OBrien on his show CONAN. And this summer, theyll continue a tireless touring schedule opening for big-name acts like Walk the Moon, Real Estate and My Morning Jacket and playing in front of tens of thousands of music fans at Lollapalooza. The band is still in the midst of a transition period, but now theyre not only figuring out how to make the brave leap into adulthoodtheyre dangling between being hometown heroes and becoming breakout stars. As they literally grow up in front of their audiences eyes, Bashful Creatures and South are the sound of the four young men from Hippo Campus finally coming up for air. we moved in packs together, bounded by our oldest brothers the night was ours for taking, rolling cigarettes and sneaking out we sung our songs of youth and promised that wed never lose it (Souls) There were a lot of questions when we were writing Bashful Creatures, says Jake. I think we were asking a lot of questions through the songs, and just with ourselves in general. Is this what were doing? Zach and I were in college, figuring a lot of stuff out. It was just a very formative time, and a lot of those songs represent those growing pains. There are a lot of themes in there with brotherhoodthat was a big part of us banding together and writing this music, to kind of push through this really crazy, formative time in our lives to just be like, This is what we want to do. –Andrea Swensson

  • Just Started My New Job

    I just started out on a new job this week. I am not really able to do much of it yet, because this requires a lot of training. You are dealing with a lot of poisons in fact when you are working to exterminate bugs. They took me out with guys who knew what they were doing. A big part of the job is act as a bed bug exterminator in NYC. The bed bug had been exterminated in the United States at one point in time, but they were brought back by some person who traveled to a country where they still existed and they have made a big comeback. That is apparently one of the big things I need to learn about because you have a lot of that to do in New York City. The big thing is to keep them out of the beds at a large hotel. Of course if you have a hotel, then the last thing you want is for your guests to go on the internet and tell the entire world that you have bed bugs. So these people have a huge incentive to do everything that they can to make sure that they do not have them. In fact they could have them brought in by any of their guests all of the time. You could just get some person who has stayed in another place where there were bed bugs and once you have a few of them, they can spread like a wild fire and soon they will be in every room that you have. So when they call us they want us to figure out which rooms are infected and then take action to make sure that they are eliminated as completely as they can be. It is that simple.

  • The Right Choice in Energy

    Thanks to texasenergycompanies.net I was able to discover the numerous options that residents here in Texas have for their energy needs. I was taken back by the fact that there were so many available to a resident. Where I’m from we only had one company and it seemed like that they were raising the price of energy consumption every year. That’s not cool if you ask me. We’re here trying to make a living that rarely ever involves a raise for most of us, so how are we supposed to be able to afford the rising cost of energy, gas and well..everything else!

    At least in Texas there is a choice for those of us who may not have the money to combat the rising tide of financial cost. I’m glad that I was able to shop and compare the different companies, choosing which was going to be best for my budget for the time being. I always thought there was a standard in which electricity should be charged but apparently that’s not the case considering they’re able to provide cheaper costs from different companies! I went with Reliant Energy since they were without a doubt the best that I was able to find.

    I wish that other states could have more energy options. I think that might be the case should renewable energy becomes more popular as well as cheaper to produce. It’s going to take us some time to reach the point where we can actually utilize renewable energy as one of our primary sources of energy but it’s going to arrive at the point where we don’t have a choice but to rely on it. Luckily a great deal of money and research is being placed on this bet and we’ll get there before things get too bad.

  • Cheapest Prices on Local Television Service

    I just paid for my security deposit, and the first month of rent, for my very first apartment. It feel rather liberating to be out from under my parents’ roof. I think that they kind of stifled my lifestyle to an extent, and now I should be able to explore my own personal tastes more. It should be a great period of my life. I need to get some things set up, such as utilities. Searching for local television providers led me to http://tvcompanies.net and I want to explore this site in some depth, to see if I can find a good source of information for local television providers, and the cheapest prices that are available for television services in the area.

    I would like to have a whole lot of channels on my TV, but I do not really have to have a whole lot of channels to be satisfied. I am willing to make a compromise, on the number of channels that I receive for my television service, if it will mean that I do not have to spend so much money on the service. I need to try to make a budget for my expenses, because as things stand, I must admit that I do not even know how much I can afford, on a monthly basis, to spend towards a television service.

    That is probably the first thing I should figure out. But since, I am already on this site, I suppose I won’t do any harm to look into the providers in the area. I am curious to learn how many providers are located in this area, or provide service to this area. However you want to phrase it. I would like to have a number of options to choose from, because that tends to ensure that you get a fair price.

  • Working on My Dad’s Place

    Of course Dad is getting ready to move down to Florida. He has decided that he has had enough of the Winter up here and he is going to be moving to some little beach town in the central part of Florida, along the Gulf Coast not too far from the North side of Tampa Bay. I am going to buy his house, but first I am going to do some work on it. The big thing is to find a good price on roof replacement in Brooklyn NY. Dad had to do that about a quarter of century ago and as he reminded me this is the sort of roof that is only guaranteed for that period of time. After it has been up there for that period of time you have to replace it with a new one and if you do not, then you may well wish that you had.

    At any rate we are going to eventually do the entire house over, but I am starting with the master bathroom. The plan is to rip out the tub and put in a walk in shower that fills up about half of the space that the tub took. We will knock down the wall and give Sheila the space for all of her stuff. In fact I figure that I may as well plan on putting my stuff in the other bathroom. It is like that, she has a huge amount of different things that she has in their own very special place and the best thing for every person involved is if no one else ever moves any of her stuff. She is not too difficult about most things, but she likes you to leave her stuff where she thinks that it is supposed to be.

  • The Best Way to Get Drains Cleaned

    It seems unlikely that anyone has ever owned a home, but never faced the problem of a clogged drain. Sometimes these clogs are able to be fixed with products that can be bought at Wal-Mart or the local grocery store, but often times these are not enough and they can be dangerous to use. Instead sometimes it is necessary to bring in a professional to get things under control. Hiring a contractor to do drain cleaning in Mt.Vernon NY is not as easy as one might assume though, because it is hard to know whether to trust the service or not.

    Fortunately drain cleaning is at least slightly more straightforward than many other contracting jobs, as most people have a general idea of the concepts behind it. However, that does not make it easy to tell if the job is being done perfect or simply good enough to get by. Cleaning a clogged drain does not simply mean getting it to the point where some water can pass, it should be fully cleaned in order to avoid future problems. If this is not done properly for any reason, then the results can be very disappointing. Of course it is also important to trust the workers in using chemicals that are safe and reliable, rather than resorting to something that could possibly cause more damage than good.

    In the end, the money is being invested to get the plumbing and sewer system working fully. Saving a few bucks here or there, but getting lower quality service is definitely not recommended. It is important to shop around and make sure any quoted prices are reasonable, but sticking with a reputable and experienced company is worth it in the long run. There is no reason to settle for something subpar when a little patience can get great results.

  • The Keys to Finding a Roofing Contractor

    Most people do not have much experience with hiring contractors and some of the details can be easily overlooked, which can make the first time potentially risky. This is especially true when it comes to jobs involving roofing, as improper installs or repairs can be hugely troublesome down the road. Ultimately if a worker takes shortcuts or uses the wrong materials, work done on a roof can make the situation worse than it was in the start. It can be even harder to find a reliable work in big cities, which is why finding a roofing contractor in NYC is no trivial task.

    It starts with looking at the past reputation for a worker, as obviously someone with a spotty history filled with customer complaints should be avoided. People may be picky and overreact at times, but if many customers are unsatisfied there is likely a reason for it. When it comes to important jobs you do not want to risk becoming another person filing complaints and feeling ripped off. On the other hand, finding a contractor with a pristine reputation that is highly recommended by past customers can be a godsend. After all, the hard work that went into building that reputation can be easily ruined if a job is done poorly, so there is great motivation to continue making customers happy.

    Ultimately though, beyond trying to avoid someone that is unreliable or untrustworthy can sometimes come down to a little bit of luck. Once a great contractor is found they should be held on to for future jobs, but there are other factors that can matter too. Obviously budget is a huge concern because if an estimate is pushing your financial limits then any further complications or expenditures can be disastrous. In addition to this availability is also important because projects can be time sensitive in many cases.

  • Satellite Television Options in Mountains

    Seattle DIRECTV ® Choice Ultimate PackageI recently bought a house that is located in the mountains, that is supposed to serve as a vacation home for my family. It is a nice house, and it is in a very beautiful part of the state. I particularly love coming up to this neck of the woods, during Autumn, when the leaves are starting to change. I feel that the leaves here are the most beautiful I have seen, when they are changing colors. Anyway, I am setting up the new house, and I want to look into direct tv as an option for entertainment in the house.

    I thought, at first, that I would just set the house up, and not worry about getting any sort of television plan However, after consulting my children on the matter, they protested a whole lot. They thought that we definitely needed to have television. My youngest child was especially insistent on the matter. I did not really want to give in, because I feel like the mountains should be a good place to get away from technology, and the modern world.

    However, I can understand their desire for television. To be honest, I would be kind of loathe to go without it myself, even if I do think it would be good for my kids to get away from the television, from time to time. However, I am going to need to find a very cheap package. I do not want to spend a lot of money on a television service that I am only going to use when my family is on vacation. In general, I would like to pay less than 30 dollars per month, and if that means that we only get a limited number of channels, then that is what my children are going to have to live with.

  • Best Direct TV Deals in Arizona

    Description The DirecTV logo.pngI think that I am about ready to switch television providers. I have been dealing with the same crap from my current provider for too long, and to be honest, I am just fed up with it. They have very poor customer service, and that is just the beginning of the issues that I have with them. I would like to find a new provider, and I am going to search for information related to arizona direct tv packages and deals. I would like to switch to a satellite provider, but I probably won’t be able to do that, unless I am going to get what I consider to be a good deal.

    I do not know how much it is going to cost to get a satellite television package. It is something that I am interested in though, because I am pretty sure that I would get more than twice as many channels as I currently have, if I were to go through satellite television, as opposed to my current service. I do not have many channels right now, but I think that I would be able to get hundreds of channels through satellite. At least, that is the impression that I get from all of the commercials that I have seen on television over the past few months.

    I am not even sure if there is a Direct TV office that is located nearby to my house. There has to be one somewhat close to me, and it would probably be a good idea to try to find where they are located, or at the least, find the telephone number of that office. I would like to talk to someone in purpose soon, to try to find out how much it is going to cost to get started out with Direct TV.

  • Looking for a New Energy Provider in Texas

    Red Energy has received our electricity providers award in Victoria ...When I moved to Texas a month ago, I took care of all the major things that one must attend to when planning a move. I forwarded my mail. I turned off my old utilities and made arrangements for them to be turned on in my new location. One thing I didn’t expect was the ability to select my own energy provider. Where I come from, there is only one choice, and if you don’t pay you don’t get power. I went to http://energyproviderstexas.com to see what my options were.

    When I got to the site there were so many different companies listed. I had no idea that there were that many energy providers in the area. I looked around for a bit to try and understand what my options were. For once, I finally had a say in who I selected. I was able to look at my specific city to help understand which providers would be available in my area. This really helped, because I was unfamiliar with this new place and didn’t know where to start. I found several different companies in my area, and selected the one with the best rates.

    Another great thing I learned was that there are green energy providers in my area. I’m really interested in helping the environment and doing the best I can to save the planet. By selecting a provider that feels the same way about the environment that I do, I feel like I’m doing some good in the world. For now I’m going to stick with brown energy, because my home is not set up for green energy. Once I’ve been established for a while, I’ll be looking into my options as far as renewable energy is concerned. In addition to helping the environment, I think I may be eligible for tax savings as well.

    3. I have this Math problem in which requires me to find the possible values for r:

      The volume of a torus is give by the formula V=2 * π^2 * r^2 * R where r and R are the radii shown and r is equal or less than R.
      A metal ring in the shape of a torus has a volume of 100 cubic centimeters. Choose three possible values of r, and find the corresponding values of R.

      I don’t know how to find the possible values of r. Many of the numbers I have randomly tried give the result that r is greater than R, which is incorrect. Could you please make it clear for me in this problem?

      Thank you very much!

      Answer by Scarlet Manuka
      Like most problems, it helps if you think about things a little bit before rushing in.

      π² is roughly 10, so if we want V = 100 = 2π² r² R, we’re going to need r² R to be around 5 or so. So you can’t choose e.g. r = 2 cm, since then you’d be looking at R around 1.25; you need smaller values of r.

      Now, to actually finding R: we already said 100 = 2π² r² R, and it’s pretty easy see that we can rearrange that to give R = 100 / (2π² r²) = 50 / (π² r²).

      So choose some values of r:
      r = 1 cm => R = 50 / π² = 5.07 cm (3sf)
      r = 0.5 cm => R = 50 / (π² (0.5)²) = 20.3 cm (3sf)
      r = 1.5 cm => R = 50 / (π² (1.5)²) = 2.25 cm (3sf)

      With a little thought you should be able to see that the value you choose for r must be less than the cube root of 50 / π², i.e. 1.717 cm (4sf), in order to have R > r. Any positive number less than this will be fine.

  • We All Have the Power to Choose

    My uncle always had a funny saying when it comes to power companies. He says that we have the powertochoose what companies we give our money. He felt that we never had to pay a company for their service. If we didn’t like what they were offering, we could always find someone else who will give better service. His words still hold up today, as I had an experience where these words were true. My old power company was one that I used for a long time, but I didn’t like their service anymore.

    In my opinion, the company became greedy, and as a result of that, they lost many customers. They raised their prices to impossible levels, offered less for the amount you pay, and didn’t make any improvements to the service. To me, their service wasn’t worth paying for anymore, so I did exactly what my uncle would have done. I left the company and started looking for another to take its place.

    The great thing about power companies is that there is always more than one. If one company exists, you can bet that there will always be another that is offering competitive prices to lure customers away from the competition. This made it easier to find a replacement power company. The Internet makes a good companion when searching for new companies. I was able to find out about different companies on various websites, and I chose one in my area.

    My uncle would be proud of me if he were here to see me switch from one power company to another. I don’t have to deal with the service from my old company anymore. Maybe in the future they’ll get their act together and start offering customers better service like they used to have. Until that day, I’ll happily stay with my new company.

  • Looking for Ways to Save Money While Traveling

    Most people are able to go on vacation at least once a year. If a person has the circumstances, they may go more than that. For the most part, people love to plan their vacation. They love to read about new and interesting places to visit. They love to think about how relaxing and fun their vacation will be. They also like to plan all of the practical things. They will think about how they will travel. Will they book airplane tickets, bus tickets or hire some other kind of transportation services? Will they stay with friends and family or will they book a hotel? These are just some of the details that a person will need to think about before they actually head out on their vacation.

    Lots of people have been able to find really good deals searching the Internet for airline tickets. Normally, a person will be able to find less expensive tickets on a Tuesday or Wednesday. It is usually less expensive to travel during certain times of the year, especially if a person can avoid the holiday season. There are some credit card companies that offer free airline tickets or a certain amount of miles that can be used to get a discounted ticket. The Internet can help a person to find inexpensive train and bus tickets as well. It is good to check the transportation company several times to find out if there are any discounts being offered or if certain days of the week or certain months are less expensive.

    The same idea can be applied to hotels. There are some websites that will tell a person about all of the deals hotels are offering. Sometimes it is a good idea to go directly to the website of the hotel that you wish to stay in. They may be able to offer a better rate. If a person wants to save money when they travel, they are going to need a little bit of flexibility and they are going to have to be willing to do a little bit of looking around online.

  • Beautiful Trees That Needed Pruned

    I purchased a gorgeous house a few months ago. As soon as my wife and I saw it, we knew it was perfect. I really liked the architecture of the house, and my wife fell in love with the grounds, mainly because there were so many trees on the property. Neither of us had ever had property like this, so it was a dream come true. The house needed no work at all, but I knew that we would need to hire a Queens tree services company to help us with the trees.

    The real estate agent had disclosed that the trees had not been professionally treated at all, so it was the first thing on my list when we bought the house. I wanted to make sure that the trees were all healthy, and I knew that they would need pruned too. They already gave the house character, but I knew that they could look so much better than what they did. Since we were new to the area, I had to rely on the Internet to find the right company to come out and take care of the trees my wife had fallen so hard for.

    It did not take long to find the company we decided to use. I really liked the way they came across online, and I felt comfortable with them even before I contacted them. When I told them what I needed, they sent someone over to give a free estimate. He looked at all of the trees that were on the property so he could explain what needed to be done with all of them, then he gave us a quote on the price it would cost. The company pruned all of the trees, and the property looks so much better. We are going to have them regularly do this because it just looks so much better!

  • Shopping from Home Instead of at the Mall

    Not long ago, a few coworkers and I started talking about how close Christmas is approaching. It just seemed like Christmas 2014 was just over, and now this Christmas is not even two months away now. That got us talking about shopping and Black Friday, something that most of us did. One of the supervisors told us that she did a search for huge Black Friday online deals 2015 to see if she could get a sneak peek at some of the deals coming our way, and she found something even better.

    What is better than incredible deals on Black Friday? How about a site that lets you know when a new Black Friday ad has come out! In addition to that, they even have some pretty amazing coupon offers where people can save even more money on some already low prices. I wasn’t the only person wanting to know which website she had seen all of this information on, and several of us asked her for the site address. She emailed it to all of us, and I went there that night to see just how awesome of a site it really is.

    I was pretty amazed at just how nice it is. The stores that they look at for the Black Friday deals are major ones that I try to hit on every Black Friday. I don’t have a lot on my list this year because I am making some more expensive single item purchases, and it looked like I would be able to save a decent amount of money on what I could see already on this site. That was without even seeing the Black Friday offers that I knew would be coming. I have a feeling that this year, I am going to be shopping from my house instead of at the mall.

    I have never really paid attention to Cyber Monday in the past because I thought that it had to do with just electronics. I feel sort of silly for that now, but I know that I cannot be the only person who has thought this in the past. When I found out that it just means purchasing items electronically instead of going into a brick and mortar store though, I thought it was something I could really get into. I am prepared for it this year, and the best deals for Cyber Monday 2015 are sure to be mine thanks to a website that I found not long ago.

    I was looking for some sales, and that is when I came across the site that has all of the information for this coming Cyber Monday. Even though it is not here for well over a month, that doesn’t mean I cannot start getting prepared for it. This site that I found has a list of all the stores that participated last year, but only if they had deals that would knock their socks off. They even showed what some of these deals were, and I could not believe that the prices had gone as low as they had on some things.

    The nicest thing about this site for me i that I was able to sign up for email alerts. Instead of having to wait until the Monday after Thanksgiving to find out which stores are having some incredible sales, I will be emailed a notification every time that one of the stores puts out anything about a Cyber Monday sale. The people who run this website only send out emails that are worthy of being sent, so the deals are going to be amazing when I get an email from them. I cannot wait to get my first one!

  • There is Help to Keep Your Home from Being Foreclosed on

    I was pretty happy to buy my very first house. I had a nice amount of money saved from years at work, and I used that for a down payment. I spent many weekends with a real estate agent, who is also a good friend of mine, to look for the perfect place. So, when I found myself becoming one of many people facing foreclosures in NYC this year, it was disappointing. But with time, I found that there is help.

    I really wanted a home that was at the high end of what I could afford. My friend, the agent, tried many times to steer me away from that, but I did not listen. She explained that while I would certainly be approved for a loan for the higher dollar amount, I also needed to think about what would happen if I lost my job or came into some other type of trouble that made it hard for me to keep up with the monthly mortgage payment. I had been working just fine without any problems for the last 10 years, so I didn’t listen to her advice.

    About six months after I moved in, I got into a car accident. I spent two months in the hospital. I was suddenly two months behind on my monthly payments. When I left the hospital, I then had the struggle of keep up with paying for my house, plus medical bills and everything else I needed to pay for. I kept thinking I could make up for lost time money-wise, but that did not happen, no matter how hard I worked. I was already working 10-12 hours per day, so there was simply no more room for a second job either.

    My friend explained that rather than face foreclosure, I should put my home up for short sale. This means that I would not earn extra money on the home sale, and the home would need to be sold for a little less than I paid for it. This would keep me from having my credit damaged. I told her that I would do it, and it worked.

    Redesign a Van Fleet for Dish NetworkWith so few choices available to American consumers for cable services, we have to typically take whatever we might be offered. When I was presented with Dish Cable as a provider I quickly jumped on the chance because I had only been a customer of Time Warner and Comcast in the past with poor results as a customer of both of them. Dish, however, was offering a new way of receiving my television entertainment so I decided that they could only be better than either of those other companies who are known nationwide as two of the most terrible companies around.

    It’s sort of wild that a company could become known as such considering they have so many customers. It makes you wonder exactly how they have so many customers when they are seemingly universally disliked by tens of thousands of people who are seemingly customers not by choice but because of the limited number of options that they have. Yet somehow they still manage to become the primary, if not the only, provider in many areas. How and why is this happening? Is there anything that we can do about the clear monpoly that they have managed to create for themselves?

    They are pushing out the competition in many areas if not out right buying them out. As customers we deserve to have more choices made to us instead of being bullied into picking one company that can pretty much charge whatever they want. No company this disliked should be free to continue doing business without at least some sort of investigation into their practices. If they are simply too large to be doing this much business especially with a service that impacts our economy so deeply, then it’s clear that some federal agency needs to be stepping in to ensure that no shady business practices are being conducted.

  • Working out What I Can Afford

    I got this place here, it is about five or six blocks away from the campus and if the weather is good I just walk to class. I did not even bother to bring my car, in fact I sold it to my cousin who just got his license. I would like to have a car to do stuff in, but when you do the math it does not make that much sense. I have to worry about paying for rent and food, what sort of high speed internet plans are within our budget and most of all I have to worry about whether or not the other guy is going to be dependable. If you have some person to split the expenses it is all a lot easier to afford obviously. If your internet costs fifty dollars or thirty dollars, you want to pay half of it and you obviously want to pay half every month. People I know who have been through these situations have taught me that you really have to pick the right person to be your room mate.

    I would have liked to have found a room actually. It is one less thing for you to worry about. If the other guy does not show up with his half of the rent or his half of the other expenses you can not really do too much about it. That guy has due process. He might not know it, but he can make you bend over backwards to throw him out of the place. Of course if your name is on the lease you are the one with the most rights and if your name is not on the lease, then you can just pack up your stuff and walk out with very little to worry about.

  • The Most Affordable Internet in My Area

    I spent a lot of time looking for affordable internet access in my area. Most of the companies in my area offer service that is too expensive for me. I live on a fixed income as it is, and I can’t afford to spend a lot just to use the Internet. Until I got Internet service at home, I was using the public library to browse the Internet. This worked for a while, but I was limited in the time that I could spend in the library. Eventually I had to go home, where Internet access was unavailable. Each time that I went to the library, I used some of my time to look for other service providers in my area that could give me service for less than what the competition was offering. During my searches, I learned that there are a lot more Internet providers in my area than most people know about. We usually see only a select number of companies advertising on local television stations or newspapers. Blog this!

  • Best Deals for Reliable and Fast Internet

    I will be moving to the house that I just purchased, with my family, in the near future. I need to get an internet plan that is going to be right for all of us, and will not cost too much money. I do not know what to go with, but I found this link, http://www.internetproviders.us/internet-providers/, that lists a bunch of internet service providers, and I have been looking at that for awhile, in order to try to get some ideas. I do not want to have to spend a whole lot of money for Internet, but I have kind of a big family, and that means that if I do not get a connection that is pretty fast, then all of the bandwidth will get used up by the multiple connections in the house.

  • Wondering How Well This Works

    I guess I have told you about how obsessed Anna Lee is about her looks. She is a gorgeous girl, in fact she does a bit of modeling and is looking for her big break. She works out like crazy and the results are awesome to behold, I mean this girl can really rock a pair of yoga pants. Some girls should not be allowed to wear those sorts of pants, but she looks awesome in anything. Her face is not the same. I think it is beautiful, but she wants to get a nose job. Fillers for nose job was something I suggested if she was really determined. Of course I am not literally sure about this and it is not exactly what she wants. Blog this!

  • Restoring an Old Home in New York

    I would like to restore the house that my grandfather built, because it has been in the family a long time, and it is really starting to show its age. I think that it is unfortunate that the house was ever let to get into this state of disrepair. But I want to fix it up, and so I am going to find a company that does work in exterior restoration in NYC. First thing I need to do, after finding such a company, is to try to figure out how much the restoration is going to cost. I am pretty sure that it is going to be expensive, but I am lucky enough to have put aside a sizable amount of money for precisely the purpose of restoring the house. I remember taking trips to the house, when my grandparents still lived in it, as a young child. Blog this!

  • Finding a Proper Repairman to Do Work

    There is little doubt that hiring contractors for repairs can be a stressful and annoying process. It is definitely unfair and at the very least pushes the boundaries of ethics, but many contractors try to take advantage of dangerous or uninformed customers. They boast low prices in estimates, but then the quality of work, schedule, and final cost are all at risk of causing major problems. At the end of the day it is better to stick with a reputable contractor even if the initial estimate may be a little bit higher. For example, boiler repair in Bergen County NJ may require a lot of research and effort to find the right person to fix it.

    Many people can claim to be qualified for jobs like these, but false promises of experience and skill will do no good for anyone. In fact, these situations are usually worse than hiring someone who at least admits their lack of experience. The false confidence will lead to problems staying on schedule and getting work done properly, which can complicate issues down the road and end up making the project even more expensive than it started.

    Of course finding someone with a reputation can prevent a customer from getting outright scammed or misled, since most notable contractors will want to avoid ruining their reputation by doing a customer wrong. However there can still be issues that should be considered beforehand. Obviously budgeting is a major thing since financial limitations are sometimes unavoidable, but availability and reliability can matter too. For example, some projects may be time sensitive and issues with overbooking or timing conflicts are always very difficult to handle. In the end it may take some extra time to find the right contractor, but it will be worth it in the end when other hassles and headaches are avoided.

  • Jack and I Are off This Week

    Jack and I drove up to Wyoming this morning. Actually he drove. I crawled in the back of his king cab and went to sleep. It took us about three hours to get up here. We got there around half past nine in the evening and it was pretty cool, especially compared to how hot it was when we left Kansas in the afternoon. We are up here looking at Cody Wyoming real estate. In essence the boss needs a place where we can start up an operation to service some of shale oil exploration and drilling work up here. I do not know much about that stuff or oil field services, but there is a lot of that stuff going on in this part of the country and we have contracts to help them out. Blog this!
