In other news, federal agents have arrested and charged a woman for sending death threats to the parents of a child killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting.

The U.S. Department of Justice announced the charges Wednesday. Its statement said 57-year-old Lucy Richards of Tampa made the threats because she thought the December 2012 shootings in Newton, Connecticut, were a hoax.

The child's parents now live in South Florida.

Meanwhile, two kids have been charged with starting the fires that destroyed over 1,500 homes and businesses and killed 14 people in the Gatlinburg, Tennessee area.

Finally, one of the men charged with plotting to bomb Somali immigrants in Kansas was also in possession of "250 still images and two videos of child pornography/child erotica" according to federal prosecutors.

Someone mentioned Miami Vice last night, so here you go. Noir Deco's entire self-titled album is amazing, but it's also very hard to find.

    Remind me again how these people AREN’T deplorable?

    I hear quite a bit of NIN in that track.

    Goodness, there are some simply charming people out there.

    “A Cruise With Crockett” sounds like a sample from the theme from Miami Vice thrown into a blender with a sample from “Crockett’s Theme.” Not bad and understandable for anyone with a synth—Jan Hammer was a Great Big Deal in the mid-’80s—just far too long for my tastes.

      …far too long for my tastes.

      I’ll refrain from posting the hour-long mixtapes I often listen to.

        Just an opinion, not a complaint.

        To be fair, I can’t think of many 5+ minute songs that aren’t too long, even some I like (“I’ve Seen All Good People” runs near enough 7 minutes, for example).
