I haven't defended the world through breakdancing since Micheal Jackson's Moonwalker. But here is a slightly more tounge in cheek fun game by the Chemical Brothers called GALVANIZE. Good fun.

The Dumbest rules in sports? You can't help but disagree with some of them, but most are fine improvements!


Your radio is broke.

PAYOLA is in the headlines again, and this time it's SONY caught paying off radio stations to play their flacid hits. I'm hoping internet radio and podcasting will help bring an end to this and a start to the quality of music we hear on college and pirate radio stations (which, to my suprise, play very little "Yo-ho-ho" music.)

Anyhow, check out this EXCELLENT article by SALON that first educated me to the ins and outs of pay-for-play on the radio.

It begins...
"Does radio seem bad these days? Do all the hits sound the same, all the stars seem like cookie cutouts of one another?

It's because they do, and they are.

Why? Listeners may not realize it, but radio today is largely bought by the record companies. Most rock and Top 40 stations get paid to play the songs they spin by the companies that manufacture the records.

But it's not payola -- exactly. Here's how it works...."


If you think PAYOLA doesn't affect indie stations.... think again...

Hey there... haven't had much to say lately, so here's another link to the fabulous POSTSECRET - the anonymous place people send postcards with their secret on it.

So long Mr Scott! And in the words of one clever farker "I'll bet the funeral is completed in about a quarter of the originally allotted time!"

Rule 178: When volunteering to "help out" at the church picnic, be sure to ask what job they have in mind for you. You may find you are doing something humiliating.

Man, since the internet, I learned that there are people out there who make it their personal quest to do stuff just to do it. With that in mind: The Wood-Pod.
