Sipp pointed this out to me:
It is very popular, but the Postmodern Jukebox youtube channel is very cool. Lots of good music there.
Puddles Pity Party is an interesting act.
Although I don’t follow celebrity news much.
Wants you to live with less stuff! That’s pretty cheeky for the old boy:

A huge ice fishing contest on Gull Lake in Minnesota:
Looks like a lot of fun, eh?
Oh my God you could not get met out there! I went ice fishing once as a kid, what a miserable experience.

The article, and I do suggest reading the whole thing, covers the lawsuit against Apple, Google and others for conspiring to keep wages in Silicon Valley down. An excerpt:
What’s galling about the emails is that they come from executives who, on any other day, praise the wonders of the free market, competition, and its ability to set fair prices. Yet in private, when it comes to their own companies, they avoid competing for staff and pursue policies that artificially distort the market to ensure that their most valuable assets — the people who actually create the products that generate Apple and Google’s returns — get paid as little as possible.
At the same time the executives of these large politically connected firms are suppressing wages, they are also lobbying for more immigration.

Feminists rushed to the stores to buy the shoes Davis wore during her famous filibuster. I’d like the shoes she was wearing when she met her sugar daddy.
Yeah, I know… Ann Coulter, but it is still funny.
Via the Instapundit, we find this gem at The Other McCain:
Do you see what I mean about “credulous certainty”? If you begin with the assumption that the researchers have accurately measured something meaningful — West Virginia, land of opportunity! — and then start blabbering that “the researchers found” this, that and the other correlation, you’re likely to end up making all kinds of foolish arguments, as Matthew O’Brien eagerly does:
The American Dream is alive in Denmark and Finland and Sweden. And in San Jose and Salt Lake City and Pittsburgh. But it’s dead in Atlanta and Raleigh and Charlotte. And in Indianapolis and Detroit and Jacksonville. Fixing that isn’t just about redistribution. It’s about building denser cities, so the poor aren’t so segregated. About good schools that you don’t have to live in the right (and expensive) neighborhood to attend. And about ending a destructive drug war that imprisons and blights the job prospects of far too many non-violent offenders — further shrinking the pool of “marriageable” men.
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
You have no clue, O’Brien. “Building denser cities” in rural South Georgia? “Ending a destructive drug war” in Eutaw, Alabama? The American Dream “alive” in Pittsburgh but “dead” in Charlotte? You’re attempting to “solve” a problem you haven’t even begun to understand, and in the process making yourself a public nuisance.
