I used to walk by these guys playing every Wednesday morning on my way to work in New York. They're fucking awesome. HERE is a link to some recorded stuff. And HERE is their website. Check this sheez out for sure.
A fucking spider bite on the back of my throat! Yea, you swallow spiders in your sleep. It may not happen to everyone. It may only happen in certain circumstances. But it happens. And when it happens, you better hope that the spider's not a fighter. Fuck spiders.

So I decided to watch my favorite commercial again this afternoon and thought y'all might find it interesting. All the imagery was achieved using photron cameras that shot the scenes at 10,000 frames per second. And it appears as though they casted Luke Skywalker to get hit in the face. Pretty cool.
And if you enjoy the song, it's by the CINEMATIC ORCHESTRA.
Speechless. Notice my future wife in this video. Thanks again Scoot for finding another gem of a band. Here's there myspace too--

Check out the result here. It's too Shanty to talk about.
Do you guys remember Pat Vinditte? From Life of Reilly on Espn.com:
There's been only one other such pitcher in the past century: Greg Harris, who threw one scoreless inning for the Expos, in 1995. More than 120 years ago, three guys are believed to have done it occasionally. The best was Tony Mullane, who stood on the mound with no glove and the ball cradled in both hands so nobody would know which way he was going to pitch until his windup. I've had bosses like that.
But Venditte, a four-year letterman at Creighton, has a chance to be the best. If the Yankees bring him up—and at this pace it could happen within three years—they won't need a pitch count. Venditte can throw every day! And when manager Joe Girardi needs to call the bullpen, he can say, "Okay, get a righty and lefty throwing. In other words, get Pat." Of course, how would Girardi signal the bullpen? Touch both arms? Either way, it's a steal for the Yankees. As one scout says, "This could be an economical two-for-one."
I had no idea Creighton baseball was such a big deal. And to think, I only went to one game, and I watched it from the bed of Mander's Chevy.

BBC News The crew of the Fleur, a carbon-free yacht, was rescued by an oil tanker last week.
Carbon-neutral travel on the high seas has its perils.
“An expedition team which set sail from Plymouth on a 5,000-mile carbon emission-free trip to Greenland have been rescued by an oil tanker,” the BBC reported.
Apparently, a trio of environmentally-minded seamen had set sail from the town of Plymouth in Great Britain on April 19, aiming to make a “carbon neutral” journey to Greenland with the aid of solar power and, of course, the wind.
But the solar panels got “ripped from the yacht” amid rough weather, and the winds – reaching 68 miles per hour – were so harsh that they knocked over the boat (named the “Fleur”) several times.
The sailors issued a Mayday call late last week, and in a twist that has struck some Web commenters as the height of irony, the Overseas Yellowstone, an oil tanker loaded with 680,000 barrels of crude oil, came to their rescue roughly 400 miles off of Ireland’s west coast.
The rescued sailors have expressed “heartfelt thanks” to the tanker’s crew and will reach land in Maine in a few days.
The travails of the sailors feed into a broader debate about the merits of eco-tourism. As this blog’s editor, Tom Zeller Jr., has written in a column, there are important questions about “how to strike a balance between appreciating the natural world through firsthand experience and protecting it by staying away — and staying at home?”
“I think it’s fair to say that ’sustainable tourism’ is an oxymoron,” said Auden Schendler, executive director of sustainability at Aspen Skiing Co. in Colorado, in the column.

So Cockatoos Can Danceatoos: Experimental Evidence for Synchronization to a Musical Beat in a Nonhuman Animal
This video and those like it inspired two studies, published very recently and available at Current Biology. I'm looking at the first, titled "Experimental Evidence for Synchronization to a Musical Beat in a Nonhuman Animal" (available for download here, pdf). The paper contains the following summary:
