Mother Mare: Up and Coming Artists from L.A.

Mother Mare is a dynamic duo that consists of two talented people Robyn Maya the lead singer and guitarist and Julio Quijano the back up singer, guitarist and mixer. These two lovely people here sing straight from their soul in hopes of tugging at your heart. So that way you could connect with there music just like they are.  The best way to describe their music is if M83& MGMT had a baby it would sound something like this.

For Julio here this isn’t his first time ever playing in a band or even being in a crowd he previously toured around LA with a band named Watch for Horses. They were even featured on KROQ “Locals only” section. So it’s important to add he has an idea of how to make it in the music industry.

One of the things that makes this band much different from the others to him is that, he has as much creative freedom as he wants he even stated”When I meet Robyn I realized that I’m going back to what I originally wanted to do”.

Seeing these two perform on stage is almost a show on its own without the music seeing them be so intuned with there music.You’d never guess that they’re just starting off. These two talented musicians crossed path at college while taking a music class together, and taking what knowledge they learned there and implanting it to there liking. But even before they decided to get a formal education when they were both children they loved to toy around with music and exposing themselves as much as they could.

Robyn on the hand always envisioned herself being solo. Working with someone else is a nice change of pace for her compared to working solo b/c, now she has a shoulder to lean on for creative help. She relies her the help of Julio as well to let know what she thinks would be good or not. Julio went on to say this about working with her “This is something really special and unique we have this chemistry”.

The kind of rock that they are is the type that you would. Put some headphones on and just drift away in. It’s relaxing and hearing this could just help you unwind after a stressful day. It helps you escape the realities of the world. When you listen to music you want to connect with yourself more. Most defiantly  Mother Mare will definitely help you do that.

It doesn’t take to much to know that they put a lot of emotions into there music. Just being there and seeing the rawness of it live gave me that connection to the music. Almost as if I understand completely how they felt. The way they present themselves while playing with an indie style that you don’t really get to see too often. While Robyn blows you away with an authentic voice.

The inspiration they got from there name Mother Mare comes from all sorts of places. One being there obsession with space. With the word being the dark spots on the moon. They relate to more b/c they deem themselves to be night people as well. As well as the sea because of the flow of there music. Robyn stated “We resemble deep outer space and the deep ocean too.”

Much of the there inspiration is a kind of splurge of the moment kind of thing “Every song is a different process”. “It just kind of happens you don’t try to make it happen you just, play around with some things”. “It’s all very flowy” said by Robyn.

As of right now they have nothing lined up for the future show wise. But follow them to stay up-to-date on social media on Instagram/Twitter @MotherMareMusic

Tesla Price Drop

Ever wanted to buy a Tesla but couldn’t because of its high end price? Well todays that day! They have recently dropped the base price for it’s model. The 75&75D have both been cut by $5,000 and $3,000 while the model S an X has been cut by $2,000. So Tesla is now that the affordable price of $69,500 so now would be the best time to buy one.

Cutting prices wouldn’t be the only thing that’s they’re doing. Such as Glass Roofs, Power LiftGate, High-Speed charger. So Tesla isn’t slowing down anytime soon. It’s seems like they’re trying to make it more affordable for the common man, making it more easier to attain one. With the model X it’s going to come with an 20inch with a 500$ upgrade for the second row console. With all these price drops and modifications the Model S is going to be discontinued. It’s going to be starting at 66,000$ while they last.

But not everything is getting a price cut, matter of fact some are getting more expensive. So it’s a very give take. The Model 100D is sky rocketing by 5,000. While Model s is 1,000 due to it being discontinuing. Even though the Model X is going to have some upgrades it’s getting a price increase with of 9,500.

Even though the S&X are changing in price there will be no significant changes to either.


Here’s the lineup in case you’re in the market for one:

Model S:

75:69,000

75D:74,00

90D:87,500

100D:97,500 beginning April 24

P100DL:140,000 beginning April 24

Model X:

75D:82,000

90D:93,500

100D:99,500 beginning April 24

P100DL:145,000 beginning  April 24

Target Goes Full Nintendo

Are you a fan of Mario Kart? Are you an avid shopper of Target? Well do I got some news for you! Target has just announced they will be turning over 650 stores across the US into a giant Mario race track.

The reasoning behind this awesome idea, is to help promote Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which will be out for the Switch on April 28th. They’re going to be calling the carts “Super Target Karts” and they’re going to have a Mario, Luigi, and Peach. Sorry for those Donkey Kong and Bowser fans. The minute a shopper walks in they will be greeted by flashing lights and the Super Mario Bros theme song, as  they walk by the start line in the store.

If you’re not interested in racing across the store, you can go outside and see how the big red balls change. Much like when Pokemon Go was a hit with the giant poke balls outside, they will be turning them into Mario and Luigi heads.

Now before you get all excited like all good things it won’t last. This wonderful thing is only going to be at Targets with a supermarket, so keep your eyes out! This is going to be around for a few weeks so hopefully the kids or adults won’t cause that much mayhem around the store. So target employees can rest a little.

So if you have no interest in any of this stay out of the market department. Or you’ll get hit but a red shell!

Legion Renewed for a Second Season

Did you really have any doubt this would happen? Fans of the show more than likely saw this coming from a mile away.  It’s become without a doubt one of FX most successful shows.

In the ratings and with the critics this show is loved. With such a strong fanbase almost mirroring what HBO did for West World late last year. Similarly both of the two shows rely heavily on fan theories and complex narrative that require all of your attention. However Legion has a rich history of lore that can be digged up by picking up and reading one of its comics. The show follows a mutant by the name of David Haller who’s the son of Professor Xavier the leader of the X-Men, and how David is lead to believe he has schizophrenia. But soon realizes the voices in his head our powers and he must learn to channel them. It’s also important to add that this is the first show that Fox and Marvel have teamed up in.

Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television said in a statement that he is proud of where the show is headed.  As well as what Marvel and FX have accomplished. This isn’t the only show that Marvel and Fox have teamed up on, there working on another one directly connected with the X-Men universe as well. It follows the story of a parent and two young mutants on the run from an dangerous government with intentions to harm them.

One of the main problems that Legion tends to have is the editing for the story. Many people throughout the show many people find themselves confused on the pacing of it. Noah Hawley is being accused of of sacrificing substance for style. But he has confirmed that the plot will be better understood by the end of the season.

Legion airs every wednesday nights at 10 p.m

Watch Nuclear Explosions on YouTube

Ever wondered how scary and or beautiful a nuclear bomb would look like? Well look no further because Youtube now has some declassified nuke testings! The United States conducted around 216 atmospheric test from 1945 and 1992, most taking place in Nevada and in the Pacific. These classified videos have now been declassified for everyone to watch in its horrific glory.

 

Greg Spriggs, a nuclear weapons physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Lab, and his college Jim Moye, a film expert, are looking to preserve these tapes. They’ve estimated to have found around 6,500 out of 10,000 tapes, but have only looked over  around 4,200 and analyzed around 500. But today the laboratory has declassified around 64 videos that are on Youtube.

 

Springs strongly believes that its going to take him another two years to scan all the tapes. Declassifying them will take even longer, since they need the military’s approval to do so. In doing so they hope that releasing these videos will lead to further knowledge on nuclear explosions and lead to greater achievements. Springs stated “By looking at these films, we found a lot of different pieces of information that had not been analyzed back in the 50’s, and we’re discovering new things about these detonations that have never been seen before.”

 

The reason for having all of these nuclear footage mostly dates back to the cold war era. When tensions between the United States and the USSR were at all time high. It was a competition to see how could build the biggest and baddest nuclear missile faster. Throughout the course of all this around 72,000 nuclear missile were made.

Russia Preps it’s First Manned Lunar Moon Landing

So Russia is finally getting into the space game once again after being quiet for some time.Russia’s space agency Roscomos is taking its first steps in achieving its first manned lunar landing. They’ve started to recruit people to be potential cosmonauts. They’re looking for about six to eight people who have worked in engineering or aviation or any experience with the space industry. Roscomos is going to be putting all trainees through many stages such as psychological, physical, and medical. All of these test will go on until only four remain. Those who are around will be part of landing the first manned lunar on the moon. Russia has even named the spacecraft Federatsiya, which has a year to be launched in 2031.

 

“There will be no discrimination based on skin color or gender” said by the executive director. Applications will be open for the next four months as well, so if you want to go space sign up now. Now to pilot such an advance ship there only looking for the best.  To fly it you must be at least 35 with a minimum height of 4’11 and a max of 6’2, also can’t weigh over 199 pounds. The pilot must have some knowledge in IT skills and have a engineering degree or ploit training in aviation or space industry.

 

With such a high demand in fitness all the men must be able to perform a cross country ski for 5km.  There going to undergo intense training and including gynecological exams for the women. To insure everyone is in top physical shape.

 

Russia currently has about 30 cosmonauts, but about 14 who has not been to space. With the oldest being 58 years old Gennady Padalka. Who holds the world record for total time spent in space. You can only apply online or in person in Star City astronaut training centre outside moscow

New York City V.S. Verizon

The City of New York is suing Verizon for failure of providing Fios service to every household. They have sued for not completing certain requirements such as fiber to pass all residents in the city by mid 2014, as well not completing certain installments according to officials.

To no one’s surprise Verizon isn’t to happy about all of this. A spokesperson talking to Technica claims that they have met the terms and agreement to it’s fullest capacity. They are calling on to the Mayor to help them b/c certain landlords restrict them from installing fiber internet in their homes. They have proposed to invest an extra billion dollars to New York city to help appease everyone, but it’s only made things more complicated.

Verizon’s main focus revolve around the way they interpret the term “Pass”. They claim that there was never a firm definition of the words usage in 2008. But NYC government is using a completely different meaning with the word “Pass” that was being used 9 years ago. Verizon believed it to be meant running fiber network routes for older phone lines. Not a literal effort for everyone in the city. To run fiber they need a much faster router that’s capable of it. But the lawsuit in 2008 states that fiber would be available for everyone in a statement “past all of the residence locations in the city”. So it’s coming down to the fine print. As well people interpreting it.

Verizon does have a few stronger arguments against the city. One of the strongest being landlords not letting allowing them install fiber. As well as the city failing to provide a “Competitively-Neutral” letter to give to landlords. When they are denied the right to install Fiber internet.  Also due to the high number of people who want Fios, but can’t get it b/c of their location. However there is some evidence that suggest maybe they aren’t telling the full story.  NYC has attacked them in the past focusing them to bulk up service or even exclusive agreements. Currently the lawsuit is anyone’s game and could go in either way.
