It took me about 3 hours to conjure up Emo Santa and it was was well worth every second.
Hey kids, if you're naughty this year, Santa won't leave you any presents.... cause he'll be too busy crying, alone in a dark corner, in the fetal position about how much his life sucks!
Merry Christmas To All!!!!

Here's another Music Business Seminar from youtube.com which includes some impressively experienced authorities on the subject, such as Lenny Santiago VP of A&R for Def Jam Records and Roc-A-Fella Records, who worked every step of the way for Jay-Z.

Just to fair warn you there are some pretty graphic scenes and a considerable amount of nudity(it is an R rated movie after all), but it portrays the story the way it actually happened, just check out the sources on wikipedia. Well then, you have two choices. Go check it out, or listen to everyone else talk about how awesome it was. Go watch it already :P

This site is truly a plethora for the growing guitarist complete with lessons, forums, product reviews, an online composer, and my most personal favorite the "Grove Builder" With the Grove Builder you can set up and play chord progressions that loop in order to practice soloing or drill a tedious melody line. And if you're a Bass Guitar Player check out Activebass.com
While Wholenote.com has just about all the resources one could think of, if your specifically looking to learn a new technique or skill on the guitar such as mastering modes, scales, tapping, chordal structure, sweep picking, or tremolo picking then Cyberfret.com is the place to be. Cyberfret.com has some of the most professional, but easy to understand lessons I remember when starting out. It is perfect for the beginning guitarist.
Looknohands.com - Chord House is an absolute must if you need to learn how to play a new scale up and down the neck. It has every scale, chord, and alternate tuning imaginable for guitar as well as a section for piano chords and scales.
When I just starting out(and guitar tabs weren't illegal), Musician Forums was a sub project of Mxtabs.net.... Now however it is Sputnickmusic.com which is a massive music review site. Personally I think that these forums have the most knowledgeable musicians to ask questions or search for answers out of any of the links listed here.
5. Virtual Playground
If you need drum loops this site is a must. I mean seriously check it out, how much more could you ask for?!? It has tons of drum machine emulators from the 70s-90s. If you need more, go out and buy one :P
Arguably the best guitar tablature software ever invented. And it just keeps getting better. With Guitar Pro 5 it now has a "Realistic Sound Engine" you have to hear to believe.... This isn't just some crappy midi creation program. It blows all others out of the water because it actually sounds real. What CGI has done for animation Guitar Pro does for Music.
Ever want to learn everything you could about classical guitar? Now you can and all in one convenient package.
8. Harmony Central
Now Harmony Central is a huge resource one could go on for hours about, but I would like to focus on their guitar software section. If your a serious guitar player you can seriously benefit from some of the amazing software that is out there nowadays, some of which is free. Check it out!!!
Much like Classic-guitar.com was for classical Jazzguitar.be is a jazz information rich website. Just do it already :)
10. Google.com(Specifically their pdf search)
WAIT!!!!! Now I know what you're thinking I got lazy on number 10 and used a cop out. Not True!!! Here's the deal I'm not talking about just searching google like you might do every day. I'm talking about using the "filetype:pdf" in front of a search query like "jazz" to come up with a result such as an ebook on Jazz Scale Theory. I'm not kidding you really can find useful guitar ebooks out there on guitar. Just try it, click the link and change the word guitar to whatever you want to search for!
Well That's The List! Be Sure to Drop Me a Comment with Your Favorites!

If you don't know how to open your registry editor, push the windows button+r at the same time and type in "regedt32" and click ok
It took me hours to figure out how to uninstall this annoying little utility.

Frustrated, and thinking "surely a search like 'learn how to sing' will yield something," I tried it and you'll never guess what I found. Crap, Crap, and MORE CRAP. To credit Google, there were maybe three half-way descent sites, but the 2nd and 3rd of the top ten results were links to 43things.com...
Well Google, I sure am Glad I now know that 1,566 people on 43 things want to learn how to sing. Now if I can only find a few people who already know how, and can teach me how to resonate in certain parts of my body to sing really LOUD....
Unfortunately, it's been a long time since I've been up on how Google's search algorithm works. But, based on appearances I will probably start using MSN and Yahoo a lot more, maybe even drop Google altogether if this crap keeps up. And while MSN does tend to yield lower quality sites at least they're relevant.
Time is an important commodity, Google!

In order to do the man in the mirror justice my plans must die now. For I have to live with that man long after the thrill of accomplishment is over. I will not live another day for accomplishments.
Money, Power, and Fame may build a legacy, but a legacy will never make me happy. Because at the end of the road I will still need something greater. I cannot change more than one step at a time, and I won't wait till I've passed the program with flying colors to start liking myself. I don't need a reason. Maybe everyone else does, but I refuse to be ruled a life of obsession.
I'm Through Living In A Dream World.

It looks like complete spam. The email itself is from firstname.lastname@example.org
Which from doing a quick whois search it seems that no one owns communitywork.us, which means the sender must have some how masked his real sending address. This guy needs a real job.
