Performance Recap: Melissa Etheridge at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater on April 29, 2010

There was laughter when the MCs jokingly introduced Justin Bieber at the P.C. Richard & Son Theater last night, but the theater roared with the applause of 200 die-hard fans when they really announced who was coming to the stage: Melissa Etheridge. Many had won tickets on the radio or through Melissa’s fan club; others had won on the P.C. Richard Theater website; and more won across our Facebook, Twitter, and blog pages. The theater is more like an intimate club: there is no seating and only about 20 rows of standing room. The artists are easily reachable. Many were impressed at just how close they got to their favorite singer.

Coby Folding Headphones are Awesome for the Office

As I’m writing this blog post at our corporate headquarters, I’m streaming Pandora radio and listening to it through blue Coby sound isolation headphones. I HAD to write about them, because they’re really great quality and only $19.99!

Before buying these headphones, I couldn’t listen to music as much as I wanted throughout the day with my Apple iPod earbuds because they got really uncomfortable in my ears after a while. I normally prefer earbuds over regular headphones because they tend to drown out more outside noise, but I thought that it was time to try out regular headphones anyway. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on headphones I’d only wear at the office and potentially … Read more...
