ABERNETHY

JOE ABERNETHY is a singer and musician not at all interested in being famous. Or so it would seem.
I went on a search for a photograph of him online. Couldn't find one. Maybe he's shy.
He is, at the very least, Canadian. Which probably explains a lot.
From Vancouver, to be exact. Vancouver is rumored to be beautiful. Mountains and water and parks and suchlike. Also: rain. Which probably explains such Abernethy song titles as "Ancient Lake," "Flowers," and "The Weather."
Such songs with such titles (and eight other songs with other titles) can be found on the album COLLEGE GROVE, which can be found [HERE] (if you're Canadian) or [HERE] (if you're not). If you prefer to purchase digitally and are from anywhere at all, you can go [HERE].
But for one track, COLLEGE GROVE is a slow, brooding affair. It is also quite beautiful. Like Vancouver, perhaps. Though I've never been. So I wouldn't know.
Abernethy's voice is a deep and rich instrument, made even more luscious through layering. He is also a poet, citing LEONARD COHEN as an influence. Not that he sounds like Leonard Cohen. He doesn't. Maybe if you hijacked Leonard Cohen out of Manhattan and left him, helpless, in some sunny meadow, without a single drop of scotch... maybe then Abernethy would sound like Leonard Cohen. But, no, I don't think so. Not even then.
Now, I don't want you to think that Abernethy is some hippy-dippy huckster of New Age-y pastoral pop. Or that he's crafting music for Druids. Neither would be true; both would miss the mark. Yes, sure, he's interested in lakes and flowers and weather and suchlike. But he lives in Vancouver. Which is rumored to be beautiful. So what choice does the man have? None at all, I would submit. He is a victim of geography. Pity him.
Finally, remember a minute ago when I said "but for one song"? (Scan back, if you need to. I'll wait....)
Okay then, here's what I meant when I said that: Opening track "Astronaut" is anything BUT "hippy-dippy" or "New Age-y." Its brightness and bounciness would have Druids confused. More BELLE AND SEBASTIAN (or MORRISSEY, drunk on love, in a sunny meadow) than Leonard Cohen (or even Joe Abernethy), it's a corker of a tune. I'm guessing, the day Abernethy penned it, it wasn't raining. In Vancouver. Or anywhere else.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

[color=#9ad]Hi

With the increasing popularity of yahoo poker chips as a virtual currency in facebook texas holdem poker game many hackers have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned facebook poker chips. All over the internet forums are littered with posts by innocent people who have had their chips stolen. Nothing is as sorry state as logging to Facebook or MySpace to play a few games of poker only to find that someone has already been in your account and your poker chips are gone.[/color]

[url=http://www.chipshut.com][img]http://www.chipshut.com/img/facebook-poker-chips-hut.jpg[/img][/url]

[color=#9ad]Follow these tips to keep your facebook poker chips safe:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a pretending star in poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

Be careful about what you download: Regular online gamers are looking for cheats or hacks for the games they play in order to give them an advantage on their opponents. Poker is no different and there are many sites on the internet giving free downloads for facebook poker cheats and hacks for those brave enough to download and install them. But many of these so called facebook poker cheats have viruses or trojan programs. The moment you install any of these your computer is at the risk of attacks by the creator of the program. He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Hackers send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the phisher who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by scammer, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behin it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips.
