“Santeria” - Sublime The most interesting thing about the “two-year experiment to increase his creativity” story that MTV After-School Specials use to explain away the heroin habit that cost Brad Nowell his life is not the fact that it is most likely bullshit, but that it is hardly a cautionary tale. Suggesting that 40oz. to Freedom - a wildly inconsistent collection...
Oil reaches Louisiana shores - The Big Picture →
I am generally not a violent individual, but on my way to work this morning I caught myself daydreaming about what I would do if I was given 10 minutes alone with Lamar McKay or any of the other top BP (or Halliburton or Transocean) brass to which we have all had the displeasure of becoming acquainted over the last month.

“Nothing Compares 2 U” - Sinead O’Connor I once got banned for life from a bar in Philadelphia for playing this on the jukebox. And singing along. And dumping my beer on the bartender when she objected. And flipping over a table when the bouncer asked me to leave. And spitting on the front door on my way out.
Oil is dangerous? You don't say!
The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival just blew through town and, as per usual, it was incredible. The Levon Helm Band easily won the first weekend, Jeff Beck took top honors for the second, and in between musical acts of all shapes and sizes more or less totally rocked it. Far too often, however, I found that the music acted as little more than a faint sonic backdrop for my quest to consume...
