New Coldplay - "Violet Hill"

Today you can go to and download their new single free. Their new album, "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends," is due out sometime in June.

I'm not sure if this song measures up to their first couple albums, but it may grow on me.

The Black Keys - "I've Got Mine

It's been a looong time since i've posted anything. Things have been busy this week, but hopefully I should get back into the swing of things.

While the jury's still out for me on their new album (I mostly like it), I'm such a sucker for the Black Keys

Raft Captain

This is one of my favorite Christopher Walken SNL skits.

But most are pretty incredible.

Lost: What??

And you thought the viewers were the only ones confused.

Well, according to Ted Turner, we've got too many people on this planet.

He makes a couple statements that aren't ludicrous necessarily because they're wrong, but because we have no clue what's going to happen in the future.

Here's a few of his statements:

--"We'll be eight degrees hotter in 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow."
Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals."
"Civilization will have broken down. The few people left will be living in a failed state — like Somalia or Sudan — and living conditions will be intolerable."
"We're too many people; that's why we have global warming."

Hey then says how everyone in the world must pledge to only have one or two kids.

Six billion people is a big number. But I do not believe that we are overpopulated.

I suppose I'm shooting myself in the foot by saying this, but the fact is that we don't have enough food for six billion people. But I think we can. And call me optimistic, but part of me insists that with each child born is a potential scientist/humanitarian/whatever that will help us come up with better technology and means of getting food to everyone.

What do you think?

Back from Dad's

Beth and I had a grand weekend at Dad and Rob's house.

After helping them move a TON of things, Beth and I now own just about the entire collection of Joan Crawford movies.
