A man goes to the circus. After the show he speaks to the manager and asks for a job.
"Alright, what can you do?", the manager asks.
"I can do great bird impressions", the man replies.
"Pssh, a lot of people can do that".
"Oh well", the man says and flies away."
TabBank Makes Writing Your Own Guitar Music Much Easier
While writing down lyrics and Guitar chords with a pen and paper is simple enough, TabBank makes it just as streamlined on your devices. It’s as easy as typing a text.
The app, which released today, is from designer Chris Ladd, who made the guitar lesson app ChordBank and note-taking app Better Notes. It lets you put together songs with chords, lyrics, and even tablature that you can then print out or share online in PDF form. The app also lets you import existing tabs from the web, so you can tweak them yourself, or use the app’s audio preview feature to hear how a solo is supposed to sound. Importing requires a mobile Safari extension, but once you have it installed, just head to your favorite guitar tab sites, find a song you like, and hit the Share button. The song will then appear in the app.
But if you’re a creative type, writing out your own songs is a cinch because TabBank places your most-used chords at the top of the keyboard, so you can write an entire verse in a matter of seconds. And editing and navigating tablature is fast with the app’s arrow keys. Also, you can always tap a chord or tab note to see what it sounds like while you’re editing your music.
You can download TabBank on the iOS App Store for free and use it to write your own songs. But if you want to share those songs as PDFs, print them, or import someone else’s tabs, you’ll need to upgrade to the Pro version for $7.99.
Ladd says a desktop version is also in the works for later this fall.
ATLANTA, GA -- U.S. law enforcement arrested a French man suspected of running a "dark web" drug ring after he traveled to the United States to compete in a beard-growing competition.
On Friday, authorities arrested Gal Vallerius, 38, who they suspect is the man behind the online handle "OxyMonster." Vallerius was arrested after landing in Atlanta, while he was on his way to the World Beard and Mustache Championships in Austin, Texas. Photos of Vallerius on his now-deleted Instagram account show him sporting a long red beard.
Investigators said the account registered to OxyMonster was set up as an administrator on the dark web trading site Dream Market, where buyers and sellers use the anonymous cryptocurrency bitcoin to move narcotics. In addition to being an administrator, the OxyMonster account was responsible for selling controlled prescription drugs including Oxycontin and Ritalin.
The Miami Herald reported that, according to an affidavit filed in federal court by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, a laptop computer Vallerius was carrying produced evidence he is the man behind the account. The laptop also contained links to a 500,000 bitcoin account.
"OxyMonster knowingly participated in the Dream Market conspiracy not only as a vendor, but also in a leadership and organizational role as a senior moderator and administrator," court documents state.
The Herald reported the trip was Vallerius' first to the United States. He was scheduled to compete in the "full beard, 30.1-40 cm" category.
