The homie sent over the new single and video from Los Angeles based electronic pop duo Moxi. It’s called "Back to Me" and is all about interconnectedness, healing and finding one’s own true self. I dig the cinematic soundscapes and soaring vocals.
Franklin D. Roosevelt knew that one of the simplest, most obvious and most important ways of gaining good will was by remembering names and making people feel important – yet how many of us do it?
Half the time we are introduced to a stranger, we chat a few minutes and can’t even remember his or her name by the time we say goodbye.

Memorial for the town of Lidice in the Czech Republic, where a high-ranking Nazi officer was killed and Hitler personally ordered the murder of everybody in the town and most of the children were taken away to concentration camps.
“The only adult man from Lidice actually in Czechoslovakia who survived this atrocity was František Saidl (1887–1961), the former deputy-mayor of Lidice who had been arrested at the end of 1938 because on 19 December 1938 he accidentally killed his son Eduard Saidl. He was imprisoned for four years and had no idea about this massacre. He found out when he returned home on 23 December 1942. Upon discovering the massacre, he was so distraught he turned himself in to SS officers in the nearby town of Kladno, confessed to being from Lidice, and even said he approved of the assassination of Heydrich. Despite confirming his identity, the SS officers simply laughed at him and turned him away, and he went on to survive the war.”
EMT with the FDNY here. It happens all the time – especially in Manhattan. There’s your classic hit and splatter, which sounds like what happened here. Then there’s your “space case” which is where they get wedged in between the subway car and the platform. Usually it’s because they dropped something on the tracks, jumped down, and didn’t realize how high the platform actually is. So they try to get up on the platform, and they can’t, and the train winds up coming and depending on how big the space is will either cut them in half or wedge them between the car and platform. Then, you have your “screw driver” which is the same as the space case, except the top half of the body stays in the same direction, and the waist/legs twist around and around as the subway car pulls the body down the side of the platform. This is actually a scenario that is practiced jointly between EMS and Fire at the academy – they have a fake subway track at the FDNY Academy on Randall’s Island that they mimic this with.
I’m 30 and started smoking when i was 12. By the time i was 15 I was a full fledged pack a day smoker. Over the years I have witnessed many people fall prey to the habit.
You start by smoking here and there, maybe you don’t inhale at first, maybe you just like to blow it out your nose or smoke it like a cigar. It’s only on certain occasions.
If you are fiddling with cigarettes, you likely have friends that are smoking, also. so you are hanging out, maybe having a few beers, and you see them smoking and decide to be social with them, and also have a cig, but alas, you have none. So you bum a few off a friend for the night. you kind of like it. it just feels good to have one with some drinks or just when you’re talking and laughing. Soon you do this every time you get together for a drink/movie/whatever. It’s not a big deal, it’s just once in a blue moon.
