Apparently its illegal to be American now…
Via The UK Daily Mail:
A 22-year-old Florida rocker was arrested and charged with breaching the peace after his inspired performance of the Star Spangled Banner on the Fourth of July drew a crowd of nearly 200 people.
Lane Pittman was shredding with a guitar and amp to the delight of holiday revelers when officers from the Neptune Beach Police Department asked him to move from the street to the sidewalk.
Pittman complied and then launched into his rendition of the National Anthem before transitioning into a version of Ted Nugent’s Stranglehold, as seen in a video shot on July 4 around 3pm.
As members of the crowd applauded and chanted, officers approached Pittman and had a brief conversation with the guitarist before leading him away, leaving friends to deal with his equipment.
Pittman was handcuffed, taken to the police station, given a notice to appear and charged with misdemeanor breach of the peace, according to News4Jax.
According to Pittman, officers said they considered charging him with inciting a riot and keeping him in jail overnight.
He said: ‘That blows my mind, because it was peaceful up until the time they arrested me.
‘I don’t think I ever played that song as good in my life as I did on that day. Read More…
Inciting a riot? Really?!?!? Where?
So much for land of the free…

So VH1 has a series called, The Complete History Of Heavy Metal. The first episode featured the godfather of heavy metal himself, the master of the riff, Tony Iommi, It’s narrated by Iommi, animated by Paul Blow and discusses the industrial accident that saw the Black Sabbath guitarist lose the tips of his fingers, and launch the sound that would become synonymous with the genre.
It has been quite a while since I wrote a cigar review. I had wanted to really do it consistently, but only managed to do two and that’s about it — so goes pretty much anything I want to do blog related.
For the last few weeks I’ve had a pretty interesting cigar sitting in my humidor that I picked up at my local Cigar Lounge, Royal Havana. Tonight I decided to spark that smoke up and as I was getting ready to open up its interesting packaging I decided, hey why not blog about it.
So here we go.
Purchased from Royal Havana Cigars in Willoughby, OH.
The first thing you notice about this cigar is the fact that its wrapped in a tobacco leaf. Well aren’t all cigars wrapped in a tobacco leaf you might say, yes they all are – but not in the same way that this cigar is.
All cigars are wrapped in a tobacco leaf that holds the filler tobacco leaves within a cigar, then they are usually individually wrapped in cellophane. The Leaf by Oscar, however, tosses out the cellophane and instead uses another tobacco leaf.
At first glance this makes for what you think is one damn ugly looking cigar. Once you remove that outer layer however, you reveal the beauty that lays inside.
A dark and shiny maduro wrapper glistening with oils and very few visible veins.
The pre-burn aroma on this cigar is light with an earthy, leathery smell. My untrained nose thought it got a hint of saltiness that made me thing of the seaside.
I used the built-in punch on my Vector torch lighter to put a “figure eight” hole in it. The pre-light cold draw was light and hay-like.
It lit up very easy, which surprised me a little bit with how oily this stick was. The first few puffs were a little overwhelming in their spiciness, but that was just at the very beginning. This is a strong cigar with its maduro wrapper, but its by no means a cigar that will knock you on your ass in its strength. Once I got into the first third I noticed a dark-chocolate type aftertaste that was very pleasant as well as a slight saltiness. I don’t know if its due to the oils, but this cigar burns fairly quickly, fairly even though as well.
Once into the end of the first third towards the start of the second third the dark chocolate notes really picked up and I also noticed coffee flavors. While I was pairing this cigar with a hopped up Citra IPA, I think it would be better suited with coffee or a nice imperial stout.
Into the final third, the cigar the saltiness was still there, but it also started to get a little sweet as well. The dark chocolate and coffee notes make me really wish now that I had paired it up with a nice stout the flavors that this cigar gives really calls for it.
In conclusion, this cigar is by far one of the darkest darkest cigars I’ve ever smoked, but by no means is an in your-face super strong powerhouse. It was smooth and creamy at the end with some salted chocolate notes in the middle. A medium-to-full smoke throughout. While the packaging may be a little on the gimmicky side, it is very cool none-the-less. While I wouldn’t go out of my way to hunt this stick down, its a damn good smoke that next time I enjoy I’m absolutely going to pair with a nice chocolate stout.
Damn was she hot, actually still is hot today too.
The look on that kids face is like Christmas morning x20.
A Minnesota sheriff’s deputy was charged yesterday with two counts of animal cruelty after beating his K-9 partner while attending a training and certification event.
Brett Arthur Berry, 48, has been charged with assaulting a public safety dog and animal cruelty — both which are sadly only misdemeanors. Surveillance video from Black Bear Casino Resort, the site of the training event, was used to determine probable cause.
Via The Star Tribune…
Earlier in the evening, security officers said, they had been called to the Cobalt Lounge to ask an individual, later identified as Berry, to leave the premises. According to a description of events provided by Carlton County Sheriff Chief Deputy Brian Belich, Berry was followed from the lounge and back to his hotel room by security officers taking video.
After about five minutes, Berry came out of his room with a dog — his K-9 partner.
Berry walked the dog out of the hotel to the casino parking lot, where he was observed scolding the dog and becoming upset.
Video “then shows the individual pick up his dog by the collar and throw it to the ground,” according to the Carlton County Sheriff’s Office. That’s when the dog bolted from Berry and tried to run back into the casino. The dog made it only past the first set of doors, however, and became trapped in the vestibule.
Berry allegedly caught up to the dog and struck it several times.
Berry was not arrested. He was charged with two misdemeanors after the security video was turned over to the Carlton County Attorney’s Office, Belich said. Read More…
