Sometimes music really is a weapon.
Big surprise, United Airlines messed up some luggage and refused to do anything about it. But I have to give props to this guy for taking a bad situation and making something positive out of it.

- an excellent source for free downloads and streams of original electronic music mixes of all sorts, from seasoned pros to beginning bedroom amatuers, all told numbering in the hundreds or thousands. My current brand new favorite is the very diverse and well-versed Detriot/Chicago techno stylings of DJ Rubsilent
. Recomended mix: Future Funk 23: (Direct MP3 link) (Streaming mp3 link)
But don't let me divert you - search for your favorite local DJ or browse for new ones.
