Music: Mixest: A pretty badass HTML5 take on the Pandora model

  • Know how we know Mixest is awesome? Because this song came up on the playlist. It’s seriously one of our favorite songs (your ears should be burning, Cymbals Eat Guitars).

Berlusconi suffered two broken teeth, a broken nose and a cut lip after being attacked by Massimo Tartaglia, a 42-year-old crazy guy. He won’t need surgery but he probably will get a killer story out of it. Isn’t that worth something? source
