***For Loud and Local submissions, you may use the upload form on the Loud and Local page (which tends to be fickle). If you would like to send an mp3, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE send it to email@example.com. Sending mp3s to my kegl email locks it up and makes me appear incompetent to my co-workers. A seemingly incompetent Angela is a cranky Angela! However, if you really want to make me happy, you can send a CD. This way, I can keep it at my desk and easily add tracks at any time!***

Kenneth Tarr refers to himself as " the world's most safe criminal." He's created fake personas to get onto reality TV and talk shows and was even called "one of the most prolific television hoaxers in US history," by the Village Voice. Kenneth Tarr was also arrested for pranking NBA, NFL, and college football coaches into thinking they were gettting some pretty sweet job offers. Newswer has more.
As you can see, this Pearl Jam fan has spent a lot of time growing his dreads! But he put them to good use! He told the band that if they would play Brain of J, he would shave his head. The band agreed and Eddie Vedder did the honors after the kid head-banged with his dreads one last time!
In 1998, Metallica had cut their hair, but hadn't yet filed suit against Napster. They had released their album of covers, Garage Inc, and were focused on selling those albums! Here's a rare look at their 1998 EPK (electronic press kit) with interviews, raw footage, photo shoots, and more. Hennemusic for the complete story.
If Walt Disney were around, this would probably become a movie. A stray puppy was stuck in a storm drain in West Dallas for at least 9 days. Animal control was called in to rescue the pup after it's mother, a white lab, was seen pacing around the area and barking. Then, another dog, they believe to be the puppy's father began patrolling the area. The puppy was taken to the Dallas Animal Services facility on Westmoreland and will be available for adoption on December 1. Those interested in adopting the puppy, if eligible, must enter a drawing (in person) in order to take it home. Today, Dallas Animal Services hopes to locate the rest of the litter, the mother, and father. More info at NBC DFW.
Update: Stormy is the name of this little pup. His two litter mates, a boy and a girl, were also rescued and will be available for adoption. More info in the video below.
The LeBeau Plantation in Arabi, LA was built in the mid-1700s. It survived the Civil War and Hurricane Katrina. It did not survive the fire allegedly started by 7 men (from Grand Prairie and Fort Worth) who got bored during their ghost hunt, got drunk and high, and burned the place to the ground.
Yep! You get the thrill of the free fall without the danger that accompanies jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. iFly in Frisco looks pretty sweet! Also, pretty terrifying! A gift certificate might make a pretty good Christmas gift!
