This is why I feel live shows are important - not just for supporting the artist - but for supporting our love of music. When you witness your favourite tunes performed live with power and energy, it revitalizes your love not only for that song or performer, but for the thrill of being a part of the community of fans. Go to shows! Treat yourself! Even if a few songs end up being performed “poorly” or not performed at all, it’s something special to join together and connect with a few humans that have influenced you in some way. So, in conclusion; Nine Inch Nails since Pemberton. I hope you all have had this experience!

Leading Retailers Pull Civet Coffee ‘Kopi Luwak’ From Shelves
Retailers around the globe have made the decision to clear their shelves of civet coffee (also known as Kopi Luwak), following pressure from WSPA supporters.
A BBC investigation broadcast in September last year, revealed the increased trend for civet coffee to be produced from civets taken from the wild and kept captive in appalling caged conditions. 
Following that investigation, WSPA launched a campaign calling for an end to caged civet coffee production - highlighting the need for transparency through independent certification and contacting a series of retailers around the world who were selling the product. 
The British company Harrods immediately demonstrated their commitment to only source ‘cage free’ civet coffee. Several other major companies such as Selfridges (UK), Simon Lévelt (Netherlands), Teknikmagasinet (Sweden) and Winther’s Kaffe (Denmark) have gone even further by completely removing the product from their shelves until a cruelty-free product can be guaranteed.
Full list of retailers committed to stop selling Kopi Luwak or to source only from cage free sources:
Canada: Doi Chaang Coffee Company, The Bean Stop
Denmark: Coolshop, Cool Stuff, Mikkeller, Randers Regnskov, Risteriet, Winther’s Kaffe
Netherlands: Brandmeester’s, Simon Lévelt, Van Hilst
Sweden: Cool Stuff, J & N, Teknikmagasinet, Roliga Prylar
UK: Harrods, Selfridges, Firebox
