Amazon confirmed that First day 2022 will be in July in more than 20 countries, returning to its usual month after two years of pandemic-related changes. In 2020 Prime Day moved to October, and in 2021 it was June.

The company shared this early information on Prime Day 2022 while announcing its first quarter results on Thursday, April 28. “Prime members will be able to save on national brand and small business products across all categories,” the company said. said in a statement.

Here’s a look at what to expect on Prime Day 2022, what makes this year different, and where we expect to see the best deals.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

First day, which started eight years ago, is Amazon’s biggest shopping event for Prime members. The stellar sale includes discounts on thousands and thousands of products: tech, kitchen essentials, vacuums, apparel, beauty must-haves and more.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Although we don’t have exact dates yet, Amazon has confirmed that First day will take place in July 2022 in more than 20 countries. Historically, Prime Day has been in the middle of the month, after the July 4 holiday, and in time for back-to-school shopping for states returning to school in late July and early August.

Does Prime Day have sales on everything?

Not everything is on sale for Prime Day, but a lot is. It’s usually the day you’ll find huge discounts on the top-rated brands and products you know and love.

What do we know about Prime Day so far?

This year, First day is back to warm up our summers, launching in July in over 20 countries.

With people looking to treat themselves after a rough year, this year’s Prime Day could break records. In a May 2021 survey from Criteo, four in five US consumers (81%) said Prime Day made them want to shop.

Other retailers will also be jumping on the Prime Day bandwagon – Walmart, Best Buy, Target and GameStop all cheered with their own sales last year.

What are the offers not to be missed?

No one knows exactly which products will go on sale. But if history repeats itself, and we think it will, some of the best deals will be on Amazon devices, like the Fire 4K TV Stickand the echo dot.

The most purchased products by Yahoo readers last Prime Day? Apple AirPods, White crest stripes, and Sony WH-CH710N Noise Canceling Headphones. This year should follow suit, offering significant markdowns in all categories.

Is Prime Day only for Prime members?

Yeah. But if you’re not a Prime member, there’s still time to sign up and take advantage of the savings. Main planes cost $14.99 per month (or $139 per year), and you get a 30-day free trial when signing up.

Prime member benefits include free two-day shipping and delivery, and same-day or even two-hour shipping for eligible items and locations. It also comes with access to First video, Amazon Music (2 million songs, ad-free!), free two-day delivery on prescriptions from Amazon Pharmacy, free video games via Prime Gaming (formerly Twitch Prime)unlimited storage at full resolution with Amazon Pics and more.

You will also have exclusive access to offers. Discover all Amazon Prime 2022 advantages here.

Can I get the offers with a free trial subscription? If so, how long is the Amazon Prime free trial?

Yes, you can enjoy the benefits of Prime Day – and all the other benefits of being an Amazon Prime member – with the free trial membership. the trial subscription is 30 days.

There are a few things you can do to score big on your favorite items. The first is to familiarize yourself with the popular pages of the site that usually host the best sellers:

Jehnny Beth Shares Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” Cover https://bastard-inc.com/jehnny-beth-shares-nine-inch-nails-closer-cover/ Sat, 14 May 2022 18:40:00 +0000 https://bastard-inc.com/jehnny-beth-shares-nine-inch-nails-closer-cover/ Mohammad Halim May 14, 2022 – 11:40 am French singer and songwriter Jehnny Beth is back from her latest album 2020 Utopian ashes.

Jehnny Beth shares the cover of







French singer and songwriter Jehnny Beth is back from her latest album 2020 Utopian ashes. The artists shared today, May 14, a new rendition of “Closer” by hit metal band Nine Inch Nails. The track was originally posted in a part of Amazon Music Original Amazon Covers which celebrates the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame of 2020, but the track has now been released on all music platforms.

In the famous original track, famous singer Trent Reznor begins the song with a range of pitches. From felted in the intro to the exceptional lines swallowed by the “Help Me” in the pre-chorus. Nine Inch Nails doesn’t shy away from this track, as its raw, straightforward lines intertwine with the stunning sounds of electric guitar and pounding drums.

Beth’s rendition is a homage to the classic track in every way. Nine Inch Nails fans can even spot similarities in Beth’s album cover (which appears to be feet tied to a rose) – it’s a reference to the clip from the original, where Reznor literally gets tied up hands. The opening drum and guitar solo is almost eerie, only with a slightly higher bass than the original. Beth, however, adds her own taste to her cover in some lines. In the chorus, for example, she screams the word “animal” in “I want to fuck you like an animal,” and in the second verse she sings “you make me perfect” in a high pitch.

We all know household chores can be a drag. What if you had a little help from your virtual assistant? Amazon’s Alexa can help you with some of your routine tasks, making your life a little easier.

How can Alexa help with cleaning?

Technology and innovation make it easier than ever to get a little help with housekeeping.

If you’re looking for help with your cleaning, Alexa can be a great option. Not only does it have access to some of the most popular cleaning skills, but it can also control some of your favorite smart home devices.

With Alexa, you can start a timer to stay on track as you go through your pile of dirty laundry or ask her for helpful hints and tips on how to clean specific surfaces around your home.

Whether you’re taking care of the kitchen, bathroom, or any other room in your home, Alexa can help with your cleaning routine.

1. Set up a cleaning schedule

If you’re the type of person who likes to have a plan for everything, Alexa can help. Just tell the assistant to add an item to your to-do list and Alexa keeps track of it for you. You can also ask him to create a cleaning schedule for you.

This is particularly useful if you have a lot of rooms to clean or want to make sure that you perform a deep cleaning regularly.

There are many Alexa Skills that can help you clean. From giving step-by-step instructions for basic cleaning tasks to providing reminders when it’s time to clean your appliances, Alexa can be a big help.

USE VIDEO OF THE DAY

2. Set reminders and timers

If you’re the type of person who likes to have reminders at your fingertips, Alexa can help, too. You can ask it to set a timer for everything from laundry to dinner prep, and the assistant tells you when it’s time to move on to your next task.

It’s also easy to ask Alexa to set reminders for tasks you need to do on a regular basis. It’s great for remembering things like taking out the trash or changing your sheets regularly.

Timing yourself while you clean can also help you stay on track and be more efficient. This is especially true if you’re trying to beat your own personal best on a given task.

What’s worse than starting a cleaning project only to find you’re out of supplies? With Alexa, you can avoid this problem by adding items to your shopping list as you think about them.

Just tell Alexa to add something to your list and the Assistant makes sure it’s there when you’re ready to shop. This is especially useful for things like laundry detergent or cleaning supplies that you don’t usually keep around.

4. Enable Alexa Skills for Cleaning

If you want to get even more out of Alexa, try enabling some cleaning-focused skills. There are many different options, and most of them are designed to help you with specific tasks or areas of your home.

From cleaning a specific spot to decluttering your home, you’re sure to find a skill that can help. And if you’re not sure where to start, you can always ask Alexa for some recommendations.

5. Play some music to get you in the cleaning mood

Studies have shown that listening to music while you work can make it easier to focus and be more productive. And if you’re doing a task that can get quite mundane, like cleaning, it can also make the time pass more quickly.

Luckily, Alexa can help, too. Just ask to play music and Alexa will start streaming songs from Amazon Music, Pandora or Spotify. It can be a great way to stay on task and get your cleaning done faster.

6. Incorporate cleaning fun with Alexa

Many people have a love-hate relationship with cleaning and would rather do just about anything else. If you’re in that camp, Alexa can help liven things up a bit.

Ask to play games, read a book, or even tell each other jokes so you don’t get too bored scrubbing the floors. And if you have an Echo Show, you can even ask Alexa to play helpful cleaning videos on YouTube.

If you’re looking for extra motivation to keep your house tidy, Alexa can even read some motivational quotes or play inspirational podcasts. There are many different options, so you’re sure to find something you like.

You can even tell Alexa to plant a tree for you. It’s a great way to stay motivated for cleaning and help the environment at the same time.

7. Control your smart home devices while you clean

Smart devices can be a big help when it comes to cleaning. There are plenty of ways to make your life easier, from robotic vacuum cleaners to automatic sprinklers.

And with Alexa, you can control many of these devices with just your voice. So if you need to start the dishwasher or turn on the robot vacuum, just ask Alexa to do it for you. It’s a great way to multitask and get your cleaning done faster.

Just make sure your devices are compatible with Alexa before you start to avoid any surprises.

8. Get help from a cleaning service

If you really aren’t in the mood to clean, there’s no shame in calling in a professional. With Alexa, you can easily check out the best cleaning services in your area and find someone to take care of them for you.

Just ask Alexa to search for “cleaning services near me” or “cleaners in my area,” and the assistant will bring up a list of results. It’s a great way to save time and get things done quickly.

Alexa can also book a dry cleaning service or a carpet cleaning service for you if you need it. With the right skill enabled, you can easily schedule dry cleaning pickup and drop off without even having to pick up the phone.

The future is now, so don’t forget to take advantage of all the great things Alexa can do for you. There are plenty of Alexa commands you can use to make cleaning easier, so start exploring and see what best suits your needs.

A smarter way to clean with Amazon Alexa

It’s the little things that can make a big difference when trying to keep your home clean. With Alexa by your side, you don’t have to worry about forgetting things or wasting time looking for supplies.

Just ask Alexa what you need, and Amazon’s powerful assistant helps make your cleaning projects easier than ever. And with fun games and music at your fingertips, your home will be spotless in no time.

MADISON, Wis.— With Mother’s Day in mind, two Madison-area musicians have created something truly meaningful: a new song called “I Got It From My Mom.”

Two months ago, singer-songwriter King Shekinah found a unique way to honor his own mother: Theresa Kennedy.

“When I listen to the song, I’m like, ‘Oh, I hope all the moms enjoy this.’ And then it’s like, ‘Oh wait, this is, this is for me.’ But really, I just hope all the moms are really blessed with it,” Kennedy said of her daughter’s captivating musical present.

King poured into the lyrics a message straight from her heart to pay tribute to all moms and the gifts they give their children.

“Whether inherited, whether as a physical attribute or a learned characteristic, like these, these come from an amazing woman who taught us to be that way,” King said.

Declan Killeen-Toomey collaborated on the ballad and used his rock fiddle skills to harmonize in the piece.

“I really hope that all moms in the world, not just mine, not just us, but all moms can find love in this song,” the 11-year-old said.

This effort made her mother, Siobhan Killeen-Toomey, “so proud”.

“Seeing the final product and hearing it definitely brings tears to my eyes,” said Sibohan Killeen-Toomey.

Because King’s song means so much to so many people.

“You know, biological mothers and even a lot of adoptive mothers, mothers who might otherwise feel a bit of pain on Mother’s Day, that they might not be able to have biological children, but they can always be very proud to have passed on a lot of characteristics and traits that are infinitely more important than hair color and eye color to their own children. And I think that really comes out strong,” said Sibohan Killen- Toomey.

Max Jewer called the quick two-hour recording session a “Mother’s Day mixing miracle”. He is a producer at Clutch Sound Studios.

“Most studio sessions don’t go that well. And most people don’t have that good of a sense of what they’re trying to get out of it,” Jewer said.

But King did – and that’s why wedding videographer Brad Weier shot a music video for the performers, all to go along with the free downloadable song.

“It’s coming out on Mother’s Day like all the major streaming platforms like iTunes Apple Music, Amazon Music, like all that stuff, so hopefully people can also download it that way and listen to it too,” King said. .

Hear the piece performed in a live premiere on Mother’s Day, 2-5 p.m. at Bailey’s Run in New Glarus. Watch the video clip, hereor here.

As we now find ourselves in May, the final month before we embark on the summer movie season, you may also find that there are plenty of great movies to check out on the Amazon Prime streaming service. From festival films that are just coming out to older classics that still hold up, we’ve sorted them all to give you the best of the best for you to check out.

A Quiet Place Part II

Director: Jean Krasinski

Writers: John Krasinski, Bryan Woods, Scott Beck

Cast: Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds

A sequel we didn’t know we needed until we got it, A Quiet Place Part II picked up where its predecessor left off, though it expanded in intriguing new narrative directions. It also showed a commitment to both stopping long takes and precise editing that made it as tense, if not more so, than the original film. In addition to seeing the return of Emily Blunt and Millicent Simmonds as a resourceful mother-daughter duo surviving a tough world, he also brought an ever-incredible Cillian Murphy as a new character who has shown that he remains one of the most powerful screen presences today. All actors are universally solid, delivering engaged and emotional performances even in the most constrained scenes. It might not have the same impact in your home, though it’s still worth watching in any setting.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

Emergency

Director: Carey Williams

Writer: KD Davila

Cast: RJ Cyler, Donald Elise Watkins, Sebastian Chacon

The stressful but ultimately spectacular film Emergency was one of the best films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is finally getting a wide release. An extension on the director Carey Williams‘ 2018 short film of the same name, it focuses on the Kunle friends (Donald Elise Watkins) and Sean (RJ Cyler) who find themselves caught in an unexpected crisis when they discover that a white girl they don’t know has drunkenly walked into their home where she passed out. Fearing that if they call the police they will be accused of being black men, they left with their roommate Carlos (Sebastien Chacon) to drive her to the hospital themselves. The result is a continuous night of disaster that walks a fine line between cringe and mayhem, creating an unrelenting experience that aims to make you uncomfortable. What keeps it together are the three friends trying to do the right thing in a world with no good options, forcing you to support them through gritted teeth with every new challenge they face.


Europa report

Director: Sebastien Cordero

Writer: Philippe Gelatt

Cast: Sharlto Copley, Embeth Davidtz, Daniel Wu

A Sci-Fi Movie That Doesn’t Get Enough Credit, 2013 Europa report is a quietly minimalist masterpiece that uses found footage to capture a troubled journey through space. It’s considered one of the most realistic and grounded films about exploring the cosmos and it’s easy to see why as it takes us into the details of the experience. It follows a crew on an ill-fated mission to discover life on Europa, a moon of Jupiter, and all the unexpected challenges they encounter. Director Sebastien Cordero injects the entire film with a true sense of humanity that strips the show in favor of a more stripped-down sense of storytelling. As we follow the scrappy crew’s attempts to survive unimaginable circumstances and complete their mission, you feel every setback in your very soul as you hold out hope that they will make it out alive. It strips away all excess to prioritize the claustrophobia and dread of what it would really be like to go into the great unknown of space.


Field of Dreams (1989)

Director: Phil AldenRobinson

Writers: WP Kinsella, Phil Alden Robinson

Cast: Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones, Ray Liotta

One of the most classic baseball movies of all time, field of dreams is also a fantastic story about a family who stumbles upon something beautiful that still brings tears to tears all these decades later. It features Kevin Costner as an unlucky farmer who builds a baseball diamond on his family land that ends up attracting the ghosts of the game’s legend to play there. It becomes a reflection on life and what it means to accomplish something even when everything seems to be fading. There are so many iconic scenes, but there’s one that always stands out: the speech of the legendary James Earl Jones. Playing reclusive fiction writer Terrence Mann, he’s drawn into the field where he talks about how people will come to see the game play out in the humble peripheries. It’s by her presence and rich voice that you know the film is truly something special.


office space

Director/screenwriter: mike judges

Cast: Ron Livingston, Jennifer Aniston, David Herman

The 1999 comedy from the acclaimed writer-director Mike Judge, office space is a film that proved it could make the leap into live-action without losing its keen sense of wit and sardonic observations. Based on his cartoon short “Milton”, it’s become a cult classic as it approaches what it’s like to work hard work with such authenticity that it’s still endlessly quotable. A box office bomb upon release, it has endured as appreciation for its vision has only grown in the decades since its release. The source of a million memes you’ve probably seen, it’s always worth going back to see for yourself in full. While he’s still so much more than just little glimpses that have been repackaged, the way he’s been held in such high regard is a testament to how his humor continues to hit home.


road to perdition

Director: Sam Mendes

Writers: Max Allan Collins, Richard Piers Rayner, David Self

Cast: Tom Hanks, Tyler Hoechlin, Paul Newman

A beautifully shot but eternally dark film, road to perdition is one of those works that has only gotten better with age for all it has managed to do. The film is centered on a sinister tom hank like Michael Sullivan, a brutal Irish mob enforcer who keeps what he does from his children. He soon finds himself caught in a conflict that threatens his family and leaves him on the run with his son, Michael Sullivan Jr. (Tyler Hoechlin). It’s a tense, turbulent film full of violence that unflinchingly shows the dark path the elder Michael has taken while clinging to the prospect of a future for his son freed from this life. It is meticulously constructed and continues to build, making for an experience as magnificent as it is macabre. It also has an amazing Paul Newman in his final live-action role as the leader of the crowd, a character he gracefully inhabits until a final scene that’s up there as one of his finest moments in a career that is full.


Mandarin

Director: Sean Baker

Writers: Sean Baker, Chris Bergoch

Cast: Kitana Kiki Rodriguez, Mya Taylor, James Ransone

A kinetic kaleidoscope of a movie that finds joy in the vibrant colors of the simplest streets, Mandarin is proof that you can create great art with just about anything. Yes, it’s the movie everyone always refers to as being shot on an iPhone, but it’s also so much more than that. It’s a story of survival, music and friendship that rips your heart out without you even realizing it until it’s already gone. Oh, and it’s also incredibly hilarious. Taking place on Christmas Eve in Hollywood, it puts us firmly in the shoes of friends Sin-Dee Rella (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez) and Alexandra (Mya Taylor). Sin-Dee has just come out of a 28-day stint in prison and finds out from Alexandra that her pimp boyfriend Chester (James Ranson) cheated on her. It all sets off a journey as the two try to reach him and end the relationship while engaging in many shenanigans. Both Rodriguez and Taylor are exceptional, capturing a bond more deeply felt than most relationships on film. As they close in on a tough tear through the city, you too are drawn in by the feeling of love for the characters and how beautifully realized they are in every scene. It’s a film that only gets better each time you see it, making it an experience that’s always worth revisiting.
