I exclusively looked into tablets right after the new year because a number of people I knew had iPads but I didn't want to go that route. I ended up deciding that the Transformer Prime appeared to be the best of the lot but when push came to shove I didn't order it. Then a few months later another friend showed me her new iPad2 and I started looking again. When I saw that the Champagne version of the Prime was almost much cheaper than the gray one I figured I'd best not lose the opportunity to save some money and I added it to my cart and immediately checked it out.
While waiting the 7 days (free shipping) for it to be delivered I wondered if I acted hastily. Did I really need it? Would I really use it? Now that I've had it for a month I must say that it was a GREAT decision. I love this thing!
Then it upgraded itself to Ice Cream Sandwich and it became even more responsive. I've heard about problems with the wi-fi and GPS connections but mine connects just fine. I love the screen-- don't let the 'lack' of pixels scare you away. This is one slick device and I've had no eye strain while reading books on it.
Don't hesitate ordering one of these, it is truly a top-of-the-line product. In fact I just ordered the matching keyboard to go with it. I love this little device and am very happy with everything about it. Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go do some reading on it now.
Pink Floyd's eleventh studio album The Wall was released in December of 1979 and is a classic and regarded as the band's most ambitious masterwork.
This double album ranks up there with other noted classic rock double studio albums like The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, Tommy, Exile on Main Street, Quadrophenia, Blonde on Blonde, London Calling, The White Album, Physical Graffiti, Electric Ladyland and many others.
The concept for The Wall still holds up over 30 years after its initial release.
The idea came to bass player/singer Roger Waters whom was upset with himself after spitting on a fan on the last gig of the Animals tour at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.
In 1978, Roger was writing and recording demos that would become The Wall (many to appear on the Immersion Version in 2012). Meanwhile, drummer Nick Mason was off producing other acts (ranging from punk rockers The Damned to prog rocker Steve Hillage) whilst the other two principle Pink Floyd songwriters whom were guitarist/singer David Gilmour and keyboard player Rick Wright were recording their first solo albums in France which both came out in 1978.
In late 1978 the band, along with KISS/Alice Cooper/Peter Gabriel/Lou Reed producer Bob Ezrin, began demoing the songs for The Wall at Britannia Row Studios in London (these too are to appear on the Immersion Version in 2012).
The band properly began recording The Wall in April of 1979 in two studios in France (and later at studios in Los Angeles and New York) with Waters, Gilmour, Ezrin and engineer James Guthrie producing to avoid the crazy English tax laws as the band was almost bankrupt due to their agents stealing the money in a way that they still owed the British tax companies taxes.
All of the songs, save four, were written by Roger. The album's three best tracks "Young Lust", "Comfortably Numb" and "Run Like Hell" were co-written by Gilmour. Then, "The Trial" was co-written by Ezrin.
The Wall was a concept album which told the story of a character named Pink (a composite of Roger Waters and Floyd co-founder Syd Barrett).
After we begin with the bombast rock of "In the Flesh?", The Wall story begins when Pink goes through a traumatic childhood of losing his father in war ("The Thin Ice" and "Another Brick in the Wall (pt.1)"), cruel sarcastic teachers ("The Happiest Days of Our Lives", the chart-topping single "Another Brick in the Wall (pt.2)"), an overbearing mother ("Mother"), problems with adolescence ("Goodbye Blue Sky") problems with success ("Empty Spaces"), relationship troubles ("Young Lust" (wife leaves him), "One of My Turns" (snapping when the groupie comes in room and many other problems (like the wife beating in "Don't Leave Me Now") one goes through before walling himself off from the rest of the world ("Another Brick in the Wall (pt. 3)" and "Goodbye Cruel World").
The second disc starts with Pink walled off from society (starting with the classic "Hey You" and "Is There Anybody Out There?") then ponders his life in a hotel room ("Nobody Home") and thinks back to his father's death ("Vera" and "Bring the Boys Back Home"). The highlight of the album is "Comfortably Numb" which tells the tale of Pink being confronted by a doctor to take something before he could go on with the show. The song was first intended for David Gilmour's 1978 solo debut but was thankfully left off and saved for The Wall. The track is a classic and is always in the Top 10 greatest rock song/guitar solo polls! The track "The Show Must Go On" is Pink being led to the show and then as a fascist dictator Pink is performing like a madman as depicted in "In the Flesh", "Run Like Hell" and "Waiting For the Worms" before having his own trial ("Stop" and "The Trial") and is ordered to knock down his wall to start life fresh ("Outside the Wall").
Band turmoil during 1979 reached an all-time high and Roger eventually kicked Rick Wright out of the band citing Rick wasn't doing squat when in fact Roger was setting Rick up to fail from the word go. Rick was let go but stayed to finish the album and did The Wall shows in 1980/81 as a paid musician (the other three members lost money from staging the shows). Rick played on most of the album (even co-producer James Guthrie stated Rick played on more of The Wall than given credit) as does Nick whom is not on drums for half the record (Jeff Porcaro played drums on Mother, Jeff's father Joe played snare drum on Bring the Boys Back Home and there's no drums on some of the tracks).
Despite the band turmoil, The Wall became Pink Floyd's third US chart-topping album (stayed at #1 for 15 weeks), sold over 25 million in the US alone (second highest selling album of original material of all time here in the US and best selling double album ever though some configurations were on one cassette and one heavily edited 8-track cartridge), spawned the greatest rock concerts ever produced (documented on Is There Anybody Out There and many boots available) and a classic film.
As part of the 2011 Why Pink Floyd? campaign, the band re-release this masterwork with a remastered CD painstakingly done by James Guthrie (one of the original co-producers of the album and the engineer of the album) and Joel Plante. Out of the CD issues I have owned of this album, this is probably my favorite version (sure beats the lifeless EMI Europe remasters from 1994) apart from the original vinyl record. Also the booklet is excellent and does a great job replicating the original vinyl LP art apart from the change in color text of front cover writing.
The Wall is still a classic today and is highly recommended!
Girlfriend introduced me to espresso's/latte's about two years ago and I had never drank coffee or espresso before that, so my view on this might be a little skewed to some.
Have been making the trip every morning 7 days a week to the local shops at around $4/day since then. Have tried around twenty or so different places since I took up the habit, including all the major brands here in the NW. I'm also sort of particular about the taste, so I was a little aprehensive about making a home brew drip style as opposed to going to the local place. Girlfriend was sort of set on a Bunn coffee maker and just getting a creamer to go in it..poor man's latte as she calls it. Which I had tried, but didn't really like, so I searched around for a while and convinced her to try the Mr Coffee Latte Maker.
After about 4 tries at it, I seem to have it down pretty good and she says she can hardly tell the difference between what I make and what we buy at our favorite espresso shop. We use our favorite shops coffee beans though, made a huge difference in the final product. We initially tried some coffee beans from the local grocery store, upper shelf stuff and weren't impressed. As noted in other reviews, true espresso fans might be disappointed, however I find it to be pretty good replacement for the work week and we still treat ourselves once in a while to our favorite espresso shop.
For our drinks to fit in the regular 16oz coffee travel mugs, I put just enough milk in to sit right below where it says milk on the side of the pot. Then 2oz of our favorite flavoring (bought a mini measuring cup that displayed tablespoons and ounces for $2)...Irish Cream for her and Chocolate for me. Follow the directions for rest of the setup, 1 cup water, right amount of coffee and you're set in about 4.5 minutes.
For those that are wondering, I did use a digital thermometer and checked the temp of the final product which came out to be 161 degrees on the couple times I sampled. About the same as what you will get from your local shop unless you specify extra hot.
I would definitely recommend getting the Mr Coffee gold 4 cup filter as a permanent replacement to the paper ones, as recommended in another review here and can be purchesed on Amazon for under $2.
Other's have complained that cleaning the pot is kind of a pain because it can't be put in the dishwasher, however I've found it takes about a minute to wash it and is easy.
My only gripe thus far after 3 weeks is that no matter how long I wait after it's finished running it's cycle (I've waited 10-15 minutes so far), there is always one drip of coffee that comes down after I remove the pot and lands on the base, requiring to be cleaned up.
Overall I'm pretty impressed with the unit and the taste of the latte's it produces. We're both happy with our purchase.
As usual, Ann's new book is devestating to liberals and especially liberal politicians. She gives account after account in this extremely well documented and entertaining book. If you have never read any of Ann Coulter's best sellers before, you will be in for a treat. Try not to laugh yourself silly, I had to put the book aside on practically every page because I was laughing so hard.
