  1. Outside

    Outside is a concept album first released 26 September 1995 by David Bowie on Virgin Records. His nineteenth studio album, it has been called "risky" but successful. The album was Bowie's "highly anticipated" reunion with Brian Eno, whom Bowie had worked with most famously on his Berlin Trilogy. Subtitled "the Ritual Art-Murder of Baby Grace Blue: A non-linear Gothic Drama Hyper-Cycle," Outside centres around the characters of a dystopian world on the eve of the 21st century. The album put Bowie back into the mainstream scene of rock music with its singles "The Hearts Filthy Lesson", "Strangers When We Meet", and "Hallo Spaceboy".

  5. Robbie Abell:

    The questions he was asking were not the normal questions a normal person would be asking. If something is suspicious, it’s our discretion, we are the gatekeeper. Federal investigators say that in the week before he murdered dozens people and wounded more than 50 others at the Pulse nighclub in Orlando, Mateen visited another gun shop, where he purchased a pistol and a.223 SIG Sauer semiautomatic rifle. Authorities are still trying to determine the motives behind the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history. The Justice Department released the full transcript of Mateen’s 911 call on the night of the massacre Monday. In his 50-second call to police he claimed responsibility for the terror attack and pledged allegiance to Islamic State’s leader. The summary shows that Mateen told negotiators he had a vehicle outside that has some bombs. Just to let you know. You people are gon na get it, and I'm gon na ignite it if they try to do anything stupid. Mateen claimed he had an explosive vest similar to the kind used by terrorists in France, referencing the November terror attack in Paris. In the next few days, you're going to see more of this type of action going on, Mateen said. He also reportedly told hostages that he would put suicide vests on them. No explosives were ever found on Mateen inside the club or in any vehicles outside. Mateen was armed with two guns during the rampage. Despite claims by the administration and law enforcement officials that ISIS did not direct Mateen to carry out the attack, Defense Secretary Ash Carter on Monday used the massacre as an example of why the terror group must be defeated.
