Gotta Watch: Booze smasher; ice music; from the vault

Liquor store meltdown – Smashing stuff isn't just for rock stars and two-year-olds. An angry woman acts on her impulse to smash through liquor bottles after a heated conversation with the store clerk. According to the store owners, she was told she couldn't use the store's restroom.

"The ice is alive" – Terje Isungset is the first known person to create music from ice. He somehow turns giant blocks of ice into various instruments to play. The only drawback: it melts while you play.

From the vault – We've been digging through the CNN archives to share some of our most memorable video from over the years. Today, we bring you video from the most pivotal moment during the Elian Gonzalez case from 2000. The removal of the boy ended a seven-month international custody battle that heated relations between the U.S. and Cuba. You can read more about the case here

    ive smashed up a few liquor stores in my day. Usually only whenever they went up on the price of kentucky deluxe. its one of the easiest things to get away with, not usually a big deal. cops dont mind if you smash up a liquor store.

      I don't think it's up to the police. The owner MIGHT press charges, which MIGHT just end up in court. Ya think!

      @sillywings

      "The rest of her days"...really? For breaking $1600 worth of liquor bottles?

      I hardly think that is a 25-to-life kinda crime. Had you paid attention to the video, you'd have heard she could face up to a year in jail.

      Well how much you want to bet that even if she has to p ay for it, she is using tax payer money (government assistance).

      @Red Yankee

      You come up with that all by yourself or did your Grand Dragon KKK papa help you out? I'm just as willing to bet she isn't on any kind of public assistance, you red piece of trash.

    If you can go out of your way to smash some bottles, then you can obviously hold it.

    I could have told you the woman's skin color before even watching the video.
    Ignorant and arrogant..........one and all.

      What's ignorant and arrogant is this statement...To hear a crime described and automatically think skin color..shameful!

    A part of me is eagerly awaiting the impending societal collapse, if only to sit back and watch these types of people flounder. 🙂

    It's hilarious, and at the same time equally sad, that the color of this woman's skin seems more important to most of the commenters here than the crime.

    How shallow-minded you people are. Shame, shame.
