State of Delaware doesn't have enough money to clean up snow

Hope it doesn't snow anymore this season!

"As Delaware digs out of about a foot and a half of snow, state officials realized Monday they don't have enough money budgeted to pay for the cleanup.

The state has $3.2 million in its snow removal account. But it costs between $3.5 million and $4 million for every 8 inches of snow that falls, Delaware Department of Transportation Secretary Carolann Wicks said."

Maui staring and barking

This pretty much sums up Maui at his best.

First he stares you down. When that doesn't work, he starts barking.

Jawbox "Savory" on Jimmy Fallon

Here is Jawbox's reunion performance of "Savory" on Jimmy Fallon. I gotta say this is a really strong effort. They definitely picked the right song and their energy is awesome.

Cool to see a punk rock band get some mainstream props without it being a cheesy cash-in or going-through-the-motions affair. They did this to promote the reissue of "For Your Own Special Sweetheart."

These subsequent Web-only exclusive performances (from the rehearsal I believe?) are a little less powerful, but still quite good.
