Hozier – Someone New

Hozier - Someone New

A unique and intelligent singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who cites James Joyce’s Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man, Leonard Cohen, John Lee Hooker, and community choral singing among his influences, Hozier (his stage and performing name) was born Andrew Hozier-Byrne on March 17, 1990 (which just so happened to be St. Patrick’s Day) in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland. The son of a local blues musician, he literally grew up with the blues being played all around him.

He joined his first band when he was 15, gravitating toward R&B, soul, gospel, and, of course, blues. Hozier started studying for a degree in music at Trinity College Dublin, where he was involved with the Trinity Orchestra, but dropped out in his first year to record demos for Universal Music.

From 2009 to 2012, he sang with Anúna, an Irish choral group, and toured internationally. He released a solo EP, Take Me to Church, in 2013, and when a video for the powerful title track, which directly addresses gay discrimination in Russia, went viral on YouTube and Reddit, Hozier found himself with an international audience. A second EP, From Eden, appeared in the spring of 2014 and in September of that year, Columbia released his eponymous debut album.

Weirdest New Obama Taxes

Weirdest New Obama Taxes

Weirdest New Obama Taxes Proposed Include Flavored Vodka, Golf Courses

President Barack Obama has plenty of taxes in his budget proposal, with his plan to achieve $1.8 trillion in revenue featuring some truly weird ideas.

Not necessarily good, or bad. Just weird in the sense that you’d never expect or hear about them, unlike the public sequestration or fiscal cliff debates.

President Obama wants to establish a “Buffett Rule” of a 30 percent minimum tax rate for people making over $1 million in a year. That he’s made clear.

Far less clear? Some of the other means of increasing revenue included in his 246-page budget. Here’s a look at the five weirdest Obama taxes …

  1. Flavored Vodka. Distilled spirits currently get a tax break if they include flavors. No idea why, but under Obama’s new budget, they won’t anymore.
  2. Golf Courses. Buying land for the purpose of conserving or preserving “recreational amenities,” golf among them, is currently a tax deduction. No longer.
  3. Cigarettes. Current taxed at just under $1.01 per pack federally, Obama (who himself smokes at times) suggests raising that to $1.95 per pack.
  4. Corporate Jets. Also known as the Dead Horse Tax, because Obama has been beating this one hard for years. Just kidding … mostly.
  5. Businesses Can’t Deduct Punitive Damages. You can no longer claim a loss on money you have to pay if someone sues you and you lose.

This all assumes Obama’s budget passes, which in the GOP-controlled House is far from certain. But it gives you an idea of some of his fiscal ideas.

How will Obama’s second term go?

Very well, we’re on the right track!
Better than the last four years at least
Terrible, we’re doomed!
