Darth Abdullah

This is great... The head of Saudi Arabia did an official visit to England yesterday... And when he showed up at Buckingham Palace, the official band played The Imperial March from Star Wars... For those who don't know, that's the theme for the bda guys...

Smartest dog in the world?

This dog, Jackson, was caught in a house fire. He needed to figure out how to survive. So what did he do? Jumped in the bathtub, pulled the curtain closed and used the drain to help him breath and get fresh air. How many humans would be able to figure that out? - Miracle: Dog Uses Bath Drain To Breathe Amid Fire

Radiohead is no doubt the coolest band ever...

I've always loved Radiohead's music, but this is the best... Not only did they just complete an album, but they announced that it's releasing in 10 days... The aren't signed with a record label (nor do they need to be) and they've decided to give a big middle finger to the whole record industry... How are they doing that? Easy... They're letting you choose what you want to pay for their new album (in download version)... It it worth $15 to you? Pay $15... Only worth $5? Pay $5... Not sure what its worth? Pay nothing, listen to it, then come back and pay later (or don't pay anything if you don't like it)... It's a pretty amazing move by an amazing band and hopefully other bands will follow suit (I could see someone like Pearl Jam doing this as well)... Not available thru iTunes or anywhere except their own website... This is huge!

9/11 is Over

Great opinion piece on the New York Times website by Thomas Friedman, who wrote that book The World is Not Flat... He basically says, while 9/11 will always be with us, we need to stop being stupid about how we respond to it and make sure we get the country back on track... We need the next President to be the president of 9/12, not 9/11...
