HOT SNAKES R.I.P

After five years the Hot Snakes have decided to disband immediately following their August festival dates in Norway and Sweden. From their inception, Hot Snakes was a sporadic cross country art project that catered wholly to the impulses of it's parts. With every practice, show and recording the band bullied time with an urgency ignited by the belief that an uncertain expiration date was inevitable. So to explain an uncomplicated situation uncomplicatedly, the band reached a point where they feel it is now time to move on.

Hot Snakes achieved far more than their expectations and exceeded beyond what they thought possible given the multitude of limitations that shaped their situation. We had a blast and savored every down stroke.

Thanks to all that celebrated the sound.

The bands final shows are as follows:
August 7th @ Troubadour - Los Angeles, CA
August 8th @ Casbah - San Diego, CA
August 9th @ Bowery Ballroom - New York, NY
August 11th @ Underworld - London, England with Ted Leo
August 12th @ Oya Fest - Oslo, Norway
August 13th @ Emmaboda Fest - Sweden

Hot Snakes are survived by three full length albums and a Peel Session EP.

Jon, this is completely unrelated to your hot snakes post. instead, it is just a comment about you.

i miss you so much jon. i hope that just because i moved away to new york (and soon to the UK!) that that doesnt mean that you fall out of our friendship, because i would hate that.

you mean more to me than you will ever know.

thanks for always being my pal, J-Bird. I will never forget jetting off in the jetta, my first ciggarette with you, just hanging out and talking to you, eating 3/4's of the chocolate i bought to cheer you up, and of course, my very last day in LA: which I got to spend with you--wouldn't have had it any other way.

Welcome to PerfectlyWhite.com,

PerfectlyWhite.com is proud to present to you the first ever at home
laser whitening treatment. We are bringing you the most popular in
office treatment at home for the fraction of the cost! One laser
treatment at a doctors office can run around $600 as shown above. This
is very exciting news for anyone who is looking into whitening their
teeth professionally in the comfort of their own home. Best of all you
can have this plasma light technology for much less! The light is yours
to keep and can be used as many times as you like! You can achieve
professional results in less than 7 days! Our method also works in
between your teeth and deep down below the enamel. This procedure will
not damage or wear away the enamel.

How does it work?

Its very simple. The Plasma light will increase the breakdown speed of
Carbamide Peroxide, in turn releasing more oxygen which speeds up the
bleaching process. The oxygen acts as a bleaching agent that whitens
your teeth safely and effectively. This is why you can pay as much as $600
to get your teeth whitened professionally.

Plasma Laser Light Technology!

Never before seen in any at home whitening kit! Just Like at a real in
office visit, all our deluxe kits have the plasma light tool to
accelerate the whitening process. No one else offers this authentic at
home tool. Its Very easy to operate and safe to use. Accelerate your
whitening by as much as 300% with this method! This means whiter teeth
in less time!

At last, you no longer have to visit your dentist for that
white bright smile you have always wanted!

Our professional dental whitening kit is the same product used by many
of the top cosmetic dentists. Why consider paying up to $600, when for a
few short minutes per day, you to can achieve the exact same results in
the comfort of your own home. Best of all, it will cost you a fraction
of the price!

products is one of the industry's strongest and most effective tooth
whitening formulas. The main active ingredient is 35% Carbamide Peroxide.
