DAILY WARDEN TRACK: I'm dropping some beats on you today from one of the biggest names in the world of electronic music, DEADMAU5.  The Toronto writer / producer / performer is currently working on a brand new studio album, which is due later this year, and according to his official website, won't be back on tour 'til August (in Europe).  The tune today is from his 2010 album "4x4=12," and was the third single released from it.  The track sounds amazing when it's cranked, so do that after you click "play" for the massive club hit "SOFI NEEDS A LADDER" (feat. Miss Sofi).

MASSIVE POT BUST BEFORE 420: Tomorrow, Sunday, is April 20th, 4/20.  "420" is the counter-culture code for "Marijuana-Friendly," or smoke time.  Edmonton Police Service made the biggest Weed bust in the force's history on Thursday with almost 450 pounds of Ganja, and lots of other stuff, get the buzz here.  Look, if you're going to be participating in 420 festivities tomorrow, please don't be a loudmouth; those are exactly the people who give the Herb a bad rap.  The Cannabis Culture is changing with the positive moves in Colorado & Washington state recently, so please, whatever you do, be respectful with your Kaya celebrations.

ENERGY DRINK BANNED IN AUSTRALIA: A lot of people love their coffee, or cigarettes, or energy drinks, or whatever.  But an energy drink has been banned in Australia because it gives you a boost "down under," literally.  The drink is marketed as a "natural" sexual performance enhancer, but was found to actually contain the E.D. drug Vardenafil (brand name Levitra)!  Read the full story here.
