Tech N9ne & Krizz Kaliko Bless NPR's "Tiny Concert" Concert Series: Watch

Tech N9ne has quietly become a rich man by championing a tax-free independent model, comparable to indie legends such as JT the Bigga Figga and Andre Nickatina. Tech’s music has become exponentially more experimental over time, but his loyal fanbase has stayed the course with him for the most part. Early this morning NPR released a four-song set Tech N9ne and long-time musical partner Krizz Kaliko performing their very own Tiny Desk session as part the running series curated by host Bob Boilen.

The impetus is always on the invited guest to perform some level banter between songs. The ten crude Tech N9ne & Kaliko Krizz kept things sensible for the NPR crowd who by definition leans towards a liberal-bias, almost unwittingly. The point being, Tech N9ne was accused  devil worshipping, and liberal-leaning individuals are generally conscientious in speech and outward appearance. 

Tech & Kaliko’s rapport is like an act defusion: two men, not competition with each other’s thoughts but honing in on the syllabus with great precision. The duo demonstrated this synergy on the final number “Speedom (Worldwide Choppers 2),” a record close in spirit to the counterculture classic Easy Rider starring Peter Fonda & Dennis Hopper.

Former Library Director Pleads Guilty For Stealing $89K To Play “Game Of War”

According to various reports, a former library director from Utah pled guilty to stealing $89,000 from the library where he worked at to purchase items for the popular mobile game “Game War.” The man, named Adam Winger, was sentenced to 30 days in jail, community service and ordered to pay most the stolen cash.

On Tuesday, Winger pled guilty to theft and forgery during an appearance at the Utah First District Court on Tuesday. Apparently the 38-year-old man stole North Logan City credit cards meant for funding the public library’s expenses to purchase hundreds gift cards for himself, according to police. He then used those pre-bought gift cards to purchase items in “Game War.”

Winger agreed to pay $78,000 in restitution back in June, but if he did not pay the debt by a date that was to be set by the court, Winger will have to repay the full $89,000.

If you’re wondering what he used the money for, the game allows users to spend real cash on purchasing materials, power-ups, and upgrades as well as in-game gold packs that cost anywhere from $5 to $100.

Winger had been the director the North Logan City Library for about the past three years, before being fired obviously.
