KEN STRINGFELLOW: I have to say, I"m more turned on by the sun, or peeling paint on an old tractor, or a beautiful smile than most bands...I try and look at life as a whole for my inspiration, and work from there.

Speaking of beer, drinks are not exactly dirt cheap at Off Broadway, but they are pretty reasonable for a respected St. Louis sport wristbands music venue. Stag and Pabst Blue Ribbon beers are $3 most nights, nicer beers might be a little more, and mixed drinks are usually closer to $5. Occasionally, they will offer a special, such as dollar PBRs, but it"s not routine.

AB: Well, I can"t speak for Justin, although I probably could. But my influences range from Prince to Depeche Mode. I"m a huge fan of Georgio Moroder, who did a lot of the electronic dance music in the late seventies and eighties. He did the soundtrack to Scarface, a lot of Donna Summer music . . . I really like that instrumental, dance music, but I also really like classical music: Bach, Beethoven, Bosner.

You can have feathers jutting out from the mask or hanging down from it. You can use ribbons decorated with sequins for additional decorative style. There are unlimited ways that you can decorate the mask. There are several websites that can give you helpful fits but the most important thing is to release your inner artist and go for it.
Private and foreign investors are being encouraged to enter the scrap motor vehicle business to fuel competition in China"s huge market, officials at the Ministry of Commerce said on Friday.
The newly amended rules on the recycling of junk vehicles, approved by the State Council last month, remove barriers to private and foreign capital, Vice-Minister of Commerce Wang Bingnan said at a news conference of the State Council Information Office.
"In practice, the number of recycling enterprises was strictly controlled, with some areas having only one, which created a monopoly and restricted private capital," Wang said, noting that the new rules eliminate the limits.
China had around 327 million motor vehicles at the end of last year, including 240 million automobiles, according to the traffic management bureau of the Ministry of Public Security.
Zheng Shuwei, director of the Department of Market System Development at the Ministry of Commerce, said at the news conference that the vehicle scrapping rate is 4 to 6 percent of the total number of vehicles annually.
"This means we have a vast market for the recycling of scrapped motor vehicles," Zheng said, adding that recycling will also help enhance the market for new and secondhand vehicles and improve the auto sector overall.
The amendment to the rules also removes provisions that require the five major components of a motor vehicle－engine, steering system, transmission, axles and chassis, or frame－to be melted down.
Instead, it encourages them to be remanufactured, thereby improving the vehicle"s salvage value. Wang said that as part of the nation"s development of a circular economy, scrap vehicles can be sold to remanufacturing companies.
Meanwhile, recycling enterprises must comply with the environmental protection standards regarding storage, equipment and norms for dismantling to ensure green development, he said.
