Hello everyone, I hope you all had a great Canada Day weekend if you are Canadian and a great 4th of July if you are American. I posted an interview with Wisconsin-based thrash metalband Lazarus A.D. which you can read here. I also have more interviews coming soon as well so look out for those. Here is today’s news, I’m going to try to keep these regular during the summer. We will see what happens.

Man Dies While Not Wearing Helmet While Driving Motorcycle In Protest Of Helmet Law

A man died in New York on Sunday while he and five-hundred-fifty of motorcyclists protested against the state law of mandatory helmet wearing on the two-wheeled vehicles. The police say that the fifty-five year old Philip A. Contos hit is braes and that the motorcycle he was driving fishtailed. Thus sending him over the handles of the 1983 Harley and hitting his head on the pavement. He was pronounced dead at the hospital, although I doubt they needed to check his vitals to see that. Jack Keller of the NYPD told ABC News 9 in Syracuse: "The medical expert we discussed the case with who pronounced him deceased stated that he would've no doubt survived the accident had he been wearing a helmet." The protest ride was organized by American Bikers Aimed Toward Education (ABATE) which is a group of enthusiasts who lobby for motorcycle awareness, as well as freedom. ABATE’s Onondaga chapter sponsored the helmet protest ride for the past eleven years every 4th of July weekend. The Syracuse chapter president Christinea Rathun told ABC News 9: "ABATE is very saddened and still shocked about the fact that we've lost another rider in Philip and that our hearts go out to him and our prayers as well." New York is one of the twenty states that requires helmet wearing when driving motorcycles. Jim Hedlund, a member of the Governors Highway Safety Association, told Associated Press that wearing a helmet that meets federal standards will reduce the chance of fatality in an accident by more than forty percent. ABATE still believes that motorcyclists should have the choice about how they ride and says on their New York website: Mandatory helmet laws do nothing to prevent accidents. The decision on when to wear a helmet while operating a motorcycle should remain with each responsible adult rider."

That’s it for today, one piece of news. This is only because of how much other crap I have for you guys tonight. First we have the newest Rage Quit from Rooster Teeth, in which Michael plays God of War 3. Next is a new FreddieW that is based around Katamari Damacy. Toby Turner came out with another tune sung with the word hot and for the 4th of July, he did the Star Spangled Banner. The fourth video I have for you is the newest Epic Meal Time as the guys make a candy pizza, got to love gay bacon. FPSRussia has come out with a new gun video, as he shows us the M240. The next two videos are from The Game Station as we see the finale, and possible second season, of the Game Genie and the latest Iron Gamer, in which we see Dance Central being played. The next video is a parody of Friday by Rebecca Black called Sunday, this song drove me nuts and I really hate it so I thought maybe you should have to watch it too! The second last video I have for you comes from Alki Stevens as he invents the new act called cone-ing. The last video I have for you is the latest Get Her Number video as they try to pick up girls using rap lyrics
