Cory Wong has officially announced his debut full-length album, Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band, due out September 22. The album announcement is paired with Kickstarter pre-order information, a sneak-peak at the tracklisting, album art, song previews, as well as a new date at LA’s Teragram Ballroom with TAUK on October 14. The Minneapolis-based musician has put in his time as a versatile composer, arranger, producer, and collaborator, working on shows like NBC’s “The Voice,” playing alongside Ben Rector, Gene Simmons, Questlove, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Bootsy Collins, Blake Shelton, and most recently joining with the fast-rising funk band Vulfpeck as a touring and session guitarist. Fans of Vulfpeck are already familiar with Cory Wong, whether or not they know it. Featured on more than seven of the ten tracks on 2016’s The Beautiful Game, Cory has contributed more than any other collaborator in Vulf history.Getting To Know Cory Wong: Vulfpeck’s Secret Weapon & Stratocaster MasterThe record was composed and produced with a massive all-star cast of featured musicians, including Antwaun Stanley (on two songs!), Cody Fry, Steve Goold, Ian Allison, Michael Bland, Sonny T, Kevin Gastonguay, Darnell Davis, and the Hornheads horn section. Check out the announcement video below: Cory Wong’s remarkable synthesis of the MPLS SOUND with his own brand of funky multimedia and unique visual aesthetic has reached its apex with this forthcoming release, which finds his Stratocaster chops spotlighted amongst the expert production, both video and audio. Produced in Minneapolis, the album tracks were recorded simultaneously with the footage that goes on to form the remarkable centerpiece of the Cory Wong visual experience.Each song’s unique video, hand-crafted in Final Cut Pro, lends a vibrant third dimension to the album’s worlds, finding the musicians floating amongst clouds or against geometric backgrounds, spinning and re-sizing in time with the music. “When we do the sessions, nobody really knows what it’s gonna look like in the end,” Wong says of this brave new approach to production, which found legendary musicians tracking their parts live against a custom-crafted multi-green-screen, multi-camera setup. “It’s not a normal session thing!” The Kickstarter pre-order for Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band launches today, with the album set to release in full on September 22. Supporters of the Kickstarter can pledge to receive exclusive rewards, like t-shirts, signed CDs, and tickets to the PIZZA PARTY Cory and the band are throwing in Minneapolis. Higher reward tiers include offers of overdubs and tracking by Cory Wong on a supporter’s music, private guitar lessons, and at the highest level, one of the actual guitars used to record the album.Head to the Kickstarter page to see all of the new song previews!Catch Cory Wong & his green screen band opening for TAUK at Los Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom on October 14, in Minneapolis for his PIZZA PARTY release show on October 21, and at Chicago’s famous Tonic Room on October 28.See below for Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band‘s album art and track listing:Cory Wong and the Green Screen Band /// Track Listing1.

I appreciated the Nov. 15 letter, “Parties must work together in Nisky,” by Louis Moskowitz. He hit it right on the head when he stated parties must work together.Communities the size of Niskayuna, Rotterdam, Glenville, the village of Scotia and the county of Schenectady should not have to deal with petty partisan politics. We all know what needs to be done in these locales, and our representatives should be striving together to make this happen. There are good people who have run for office and want to run for office, only to be jaundiced due to the partisan line. Let the people decide what is important for them. Those who have been elected should actually do the peoples’ bidding.Richard Moran Sr.ScotiaThe writer is a retired police officer, village of Scotia trustee, village and town justice.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady teens accused of Scotia auto theft, chase; Ended in Clifton Park crash, Saratoga Sheriff…EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion
Kevin O’Neill was content with his debut but wouldn’t stand for his team’s imperfections.The new head coach of USC men’s basketball made that message loud and clear after earning his first win with the Trojans on Tuesday against UC Riverside. The Trojans’ lead was never threatened, but spurts of sloppy play in the second half marred an otherwise easy victory.Transfer penalty · Marcus Johnson must sit out against LMU since he played in an exhibition game for UConn before transferring to USC. – Nathaniel Gonzalez | Daily Trojan“For the most part we played solid enough basketball to win by 10 points, but we’ve got to play better as time goes on,” O’Neill said after the game.USC (1-0) will try to clear up those issues when it hosts Loyola Marymount (1-3) Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Galen Center.The Trojans are still expected to be short-handed with several players sidelined by injuries and eligibility issues. Redshirt junior forward Alex Stepheson is battling a knee injury and redshirt senior forward Marcus Johnson must sit out Saturday’s game to fulfill an NCAA requirement for playing an exhibition at Connecticut before transferring to USC.Sophomore forward Leonard Washington and redshirt senior guard Mike Gerrity will not be available until the end of the semester.Sophomore guard Percy “Romeo” Miller will be available to USC after missing the opener because of an NCAA eligibility issue.Miller’s return could help extend the bench for a team that saw four players play 33 minutes or more in its opener.“I doubt any of these guys have played these kinds of minutes in their life,” O’Neill said.The Lions are coming off a season full of turmoil and disappointment with only three wins. Coach Max Good took over for Bill Bayno midway through the season after Bayno had been on an extended medical leave.But with their four leading scorers returning and four games under their belt already, the Lions may have experience on their side. LMU has kept all three of its losses close, losing by an average of less than four points.Oregon transfer forward Drew Viney has stood out for the Lions with his early season play. The freshman from Villa Park, Calif., scored 30 points against UC Irvine and 22 points against Montana.USC has had an overwhelming advantage in its series against LMU, holding a 41-5 all-time record against the Lions. The Trojans hold an eight-game winning streak in the series and have not lost since 1996.

However, the grand prize up for grabs was an all-expenses paid trip for 2 to Trinidad for the finals.The lucky winner of the grand prize, Savitri Basdeo, expressed her excitement about going to Trinidad to watch the Guyana Amazon Warriors compete in the finals this Saturday 12th October.“I saw the promotion on social media and decided to look for the Peanuts with the CPL logo when I was shopping in the supermarket one afternoon. When I got home, after unpacking my grocery I sat my bed with my phone looking for the code to enter on the site. I thought that was that.”Basdeo stated she initially missed the call but received a second call and the representative from Sunshine Snacks in Trinidad announced to her she had won the grand prize, which she thought was a prank.She said she was not expecting to win the grand prize but was ‘extra excited and very appreciative’ because it has always been a wish of hers, as a cricket fan, to go and experience the finals in Trinidad.It is even more special for her because she never traveled to Trinidad.Jeranzee Marques, country manager of Sunshine Snacks, who handed over the prize to the winner, stated he would like to thank all the participants and he was extremely happy Sunshine Snack was able to make a long wish possible for someone.

23 January 2012 Saving electricity and using it efficiently is the responsibility of all South Africans, Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba said at the launch of the 49m 2012 Plan in Emalahleni, Mpumalanga province on Sunday. The 49m campaign, an Eskom initiative endorsed by the government and business partners, was launched by Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe last year. It is the country’s biggest energy saving movement, seeking to address the issue of the country’s constrained power system. Gigaba urged South Africans to use electricity wisely in order to secure a sustainable future for the country. “What we are trying to do with this campaign is to explain why electricity is important, why saving it is important, and how people can do that,” he said. Gigaba stressed that electricity was vital for the country’s economic and social development. Households and new human settlements required electricity as well as developing industries. “It is also important to save electricity for the future. We need to learn to use electricity efficiently for a sustainable future.” People also needed to understand the benefits of using electricity more wisely, which include more money in their pockets due to reduced electricity bills, he added. Eskom Chairman Zola Tsotsi explained that the idea behind 49m, based on 49-million, the population of the country, was that “each and every one of us has a responsibility to ensure that we exercise some saving in the supply and use of electricity so that there is a greater amount available to the country.” Tsotsi added that it was significant that the campaign started in Emalahleni which was a major player in power production and was home to a number of power stations. He said he was impressed with the positive response the campaign had received from Emalahleni residents. “They understand the full impact of what we are talking about. I believe they will be very involved in the campaign and that we will have their full cooperation.” Source: BuaNews

Fighting with no fuel in the tank,” the German said.Victory against Tottenham came six years after Dortmund was beaten by Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.Klopp is now European champion for the first time.“I am so happy for my family,” he said. “They suffer every year when we go to a final, the last game of the season.”The penultimate game saw Klopp miss out on ending Liverpool’s 29-year English title drought by a point to Manchester City in the Premier League title race. ‘Rebel attack’ no cause for concern-PNP, AFP Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:13Neymar: ‘I couldn’t look at a football’ after the World Cup01:56Indonesia’s footless goalkeeper kicks home powerful message02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next PDEA chief backs Robredo in revealing ‘discoveries’ on drug war Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah celebrates their victory after winning during the Champions League final soccer match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, Saturday, June 1, 2019. (AP Photo/Manu Fernandez)MADRID — No tears of pain this time, just redemption for Mohamed Salah.Only 108 seconds were needed to banish the Champions League final heartbreak of a year ago.ADVERTISEMENT After two losing finals since triumphing in 2005, Liverpool finally rose to third in the all-time list of European champions behind 13-time winner Real Madrid and AC Milan on seven titles.Few fans — even from Liverpool — will want to watch just how it was achieved.Both sides had gone three weeks without playing. It showed.The sharpness was deficient, as was the ability to string passes together.“When we look back on tonight we aren’t going to think it was a sluggish game,” Liverpool-born defender Trent Alexander-Arnold said. “We are going to think we have just won the European Cup.”Tottenham will have only regrets as its luck run out after a season of comebacks and great escapes in the competition with a squad that had no additions.“A little bit unlucky,” said Mauricio Pochettino, who remains without a trophy in management. “To start a Champions League final from the start 1-0 it’s a tough situation, it changed completely the plan.”Lucas Moura’s goal in Barcelona in December carried Tottenham into the round of 16. The Brazilian’s hat trick last month then completed a turnaround against Ajax. The reward in Madrid was a watching brief from the bench for two thirds of the game.Instead, Harry Kane was thrust into the starting lineup despite 53 days without a game since limping off with an ankle injury in the quarterfinal first leg against Manchester City.The striker was largely anonymous as Tottenham, which finished 26 points behind Premier League runner-up Liverpool in fourth place, couldn’t even get a shot on target until the 73rd minute. “I have sacrificed a lot for my career,” Salah said. “To come from a village, to go to Cairo, and to be an Egyptian at this level is unbelievable for me.”On a hot and humid night in Madrid, Tottenham came to life only in the final 20 minutes of its first European Cup final.But Liverpool completed the job in the 87th minute thanks to one of its semifinal saviors.Divock Origi had to accept a place back on the bench despite producing two goals while deputizing for the injured Salah last month. But the substitute had the final big say in the Spanish capital, rifling a left-footed shot inside the far post.“Every single player fought hard today,” Origi said. “So it’s just special.”ADVERTISEMENT DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew “We are doing good stuff,” Klopp said on the field amid the celebrations in Madrid. “People are always saying, ‘Why didn’t you win anything?’”They can’t anymore at Liverpool. Once Salah dispatched his early penalty against Tottenham, Liverpool was on the path to a sixth European title with a 2-0 victory on Saturday.And a year after defeat in the final to Real Madrid, Juergen Klopp has his first title after four years as Liverpool manager.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsA shoulder injury forced Salah out of the Kiev showpiece last year.This time it was Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko’s arm that gifted Liverpool the early penalty opening — blocking Sadio Mane’s shot after 21 seconds — and Salah converted from the spot after a video review check.
