It's been a crazy month. Crazy. I'm off to Ireland. Back May 7. See ya then. In the meantime, say hello to David.

Raine Maida & Co. return with their first album in three years. They've hit a period of distinct mediocrity for the last decade, but here's hoping this one's a step back to what they do well. I like the rock feel of this track, so I'm optimistic about the rest of the album. Didn't really care for the video but give it a watch.
This is pretty awesome, especially considering it was done with a couple projectors and with no post production or digital correction. Created by the evil Portuguese twins Oskar & Gaspar!

Stories like this shine small rays of hope on an otherwise despairingly gloomy future for humanity. Ever wonder why there are no feel-good stories about people at the top of the food chain?

The poem by John Magee, from an old television sign-off video.
And since we're on the topic of poetry, this is my favorite narration of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven", voiced by Christopher Lee.
I'm not really a fan of everyone having video cameras on their cell phones. It all just seems a bit excessive and overly voyeuristic. When you see footage like this, however, you think that maybe it's a good idea. I don't really know where I stand. What I do know, however, is that there are a lot of good police officers out there who really need to stand up to their asshole coworkers because these shitty cops are giving you all a bad name. Warning: very disturbing footage inside.
Sorry, been away longer than expected. Expect consistent updates for the next couple weeks before I'm on the road again.
The latest furor in the media has been the F-35 issue. I think I've given my stance on this topic many times before but here's Mr. Murphy's opinion. I wholeheartedly agree with every word.
