Happy Earth Week!

I was 8 years old on the very first Earth Day, and while I don't remember if we did anything special in my 3rd grade class that day, I do know that the whole ecology movement (as we called it back then) was at the forefront of my kid-conscienceness.. I remember being very moved by that public service announcement with the "Crying Indian," Iron Eyes Cody. And I was a firm believer in not throwing trash on the ground. "Ever Litter Bit Hurts," as the saying went. For some reason, I was convinced that old people were the problem, and that they were ruining our planet because they didn't care about the future of kids like me. I recall writing a letter to the old man who lived across the street from us, warning him to stop his wicked polluting ways! It's not that I'd ever actually seen him littering or anything, he was just the only old person who lived close enough for me to do my little personal "literature drop" on my own. (I wasn't allowed to cross busy streets by myself.) Ever since then I wondered what he thought of my unsigned letter, which I had placed on the edge of his sidewalk, and secured with a rock.  I sure hope it didn't blow away. I'd hate to think it ended up as just another piece of litter! Watch this old public service announcement. Maybe you'll be inspired to start your own ecology movement!

The problem with holiday sweaters--and it's not that they're ugly
Holiday sweaters--oh we love to mock them! Ugly holiday sweater parties have become so mainstream that I feel they are no longer ironic. But that's not what I'm going to gripe about. My problem is that ugly holiday sweaters are now becoming...

1. U2- Songs of Innocence: One of my favorite English poets is, William Blake. Jim Morrison of the Doors was so inspired by Blake's poetry, he used one of Blake's lines, "the doors of perception," to name the Doors….the Doors! So, this U2 album,...

World's Worst iPod: Carl Douglas "Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting"

Jeff the Promo Guy's Top 2014 Picks
2014 had a ton of great new album releases, and I easily came up with more than 10 to reference. I would have loved to include The Fray, Angus & Julia Stone, Bleachers, Alt-J, and George Ezra… but they just didn't make it on my Top 10 list. Here...
