Its a shrimp creole instead of a gumbo, but still a tasty idea:

Brooklyn, NY — Lettuce releases the bonus track “Star Children,” previously only available on the rare Japanese version of their 2008 album Rage!. Because of the limited release, “Star Children” has only been heard by the most devoted Lettuce fans. Lettuce’s Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff had this to say about the release:
“The track was named “Star Children” to pay tribute to some of the great Funkateers like Bernie Worrell, Bootsy Collins, and George Clinton. Neal Evans absolutely crushes the Modular Synthesizer. This is a free track from everyone here at Lettuce, so turn it up Loud, Blast Off, and Enjoy the Ride.”
Lettuce has enjoyed a booming Spring 2013, consisting of main stage plays at Buku, Summer Camp, & Purple Hatter’s Ball Music Festivals, as well as sold-out club plays in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Denver, New York City, and New Orleans (Annual Royal Family Ball). The band will continue to build momentum leading into an electrifying summer, highlighted by their return to the legendary Fuji Rock festival in Japan, as well its primetime slots at Electric Forest, All Good, and the Catskill Chill music festivals.
Five Reasons to Vote Out Louisiana Rep Steve Scalise
1. Well that’s a solid argument.
2. Solid arguments are this guy’s thing, eh?
3. American by birth? Nope.
- Just because Steve Scalise got his citizenship through birth doesn’t mean he believes others should.
4. You should fight for your country….unless you’re gay.
5. Well, violence isn’t that bad, amirite?
“On Sunday, Netflix agreed to pay Comcast an undisclosed amount to ensure that its videos stream smoothly to Comcast customers. But fans of Francis Underwood’s manipulations on House of Cards might want to temper their celebrations.
This is more than a deal between two giant companies: It will affect everyone who uses the Internet. And as with so many things involving Comcast, consumers will end up paying for it in the end.”
"Let’s be clear. The Comcast-Netflix agreement is not the outcome of a free market. This is Comcast having Netflix over a barrel, and backing off only when it became clear that this sort of trickery could potentially derail its mega-merger with Time Warner Cable."
"This is a critical moment for our country. If Comcast acquires Time Warner Cable, it will control 55 percent of the U.S. market’s pay-TV/Internet bundled customers. It will be the only provider of this advanced communications package to nearly four out of every 10 U.S. homes. With this much control over the platform we all use to communicate and share with the outside world, the new normal will be whatever Comcast wants it to be.
Our country used to guard against the consolidation of this much market power, but in recent years policymakers have forgotten the lessons of history. We need to put the “public” back into public policy and some teeth back into our antitrust enforcement.
The average Internet user is at the mercy of companies like Comcast and Verizon, which won’t hesitate to degrade their services as a negotiating ploy. We need a watchdog in Washington who will demand transparency and who has the authority to stop discrimination and anti-competitive behavior.”
