Get a load of this. This is a video of Finnish rock and roll band the Leningrad Cowboys, singing “Sweet Home Alabama with … the Soviet Red Army Choir, the former Soviet Union’s former official army band. Does it get any crazier than this?
Paul Watson has been called a bandit and an angel. Whatever your opinion on the guy, you must admit that he has some balls, that he uses for an altruistic cause. Here‘s an interesting article on Sea Shepherd, the organization Paul Watson started, because he was dissatisfied with (according to him) Greenpeace’s meek approach to saving the environment. Check Paul Watson’s resume.
It sure sounds romantic: to boldly sail the seven seas on a continuing mission to seek out new injustice and new uncivilized behavior and boldly do what nobody else will do about it. As a modern day pirate!
You don’t need to be a catholic or even a believer to be happy with the Vatican this week.
The original Seven Deadly Sins (sloth, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, wrath and pride) were a bit outdated, so they we’re updated to Seven Deadly Sins 2.0: genetic modification, carrying out experiments on humans, polluting the environment, causing social injustice, causing poverty, becoming obscenely wealthy and taking drugs.

The video below seems unreal, but it looks too well produced to be a spoof. Does anyone know if this is real, and if so, why MTV would make a video like this? The ‘evil’ men in the video sure look and sound like white Americans!
A philosophical animation about what evil is or could mean. Very nice, naive style of design and rendering, somewhere in between motion graphics and animation.
A documentary and a cartoon about Net Neutrality, check ‘m out.
This song, by folk singer John McCutcheon is totally made up of Bushisms. When so many Bushisms are combined in a way like this, it’s almost hard to believe that it’s real. My personal alltime favorite is definitely “I know the human being and fish can coexist peacefully.” This sentence so weird, that it’s almost transcendental, like something a really old Zen monk would say, after having lived in a cave for twenty years, in solitary celibacy. Perhaps George Junior is so much more smart than all of us, that his words are simply not understood by us.
It’s recommended to either listen to the audio or watch the video, but not do it simultaneously, because audio and video do not directly relate
Thank to Jeff…
