Did you know that James Taylor and Carly Simon have a son?

Ben Taylor - My Wicked Way
Track taken from Ben's Lady Magic EP:
Nothing I can do
I've always gargled with salt water, but apparently this remedy works when antibiotics do not, and is excellent for those weird sore throats that don't seem to go away after 4 weeks (the ones that possibly lead to chronic fatigue syndrome).
Any reliable birth control option that doesn't require pumping your body with synthetic hormones resulting in a permanently grotty mood, lowered libido and health problems later on, gets a big thumbs up from me. (more...)
The annual seal hunt is now just a few days away. In the next few weeks, hundreds of thousands of baby seals will be clubbed or shot -- an annual harp seal slaughter endorsed by the Canadian government. Scores of baby seals, some as young as three weeks old, will be beaten or shot and left to die. Many will be skinned alive... (more...)
One of the most surprisingly wonderful things that happened to me yesterday was Field Music - a band I unexpectedly watched play last night just before Menomena's highly anticipated set. (more...)
The Games Factory 2 lets you add images, as simple or complex as you can make them, do some simple animation tweaks to them, and then assign them as moving characters, backgrounds, foregrounds, etc. It looks like a super simple way to make your own video games.
Finally, a way to have my stick figure skateboarders show the Evil Ninja Turtles who's the boss once and for all!
Treehouses that are used as full-time dwellings are a real rarity.
When Kendall Thurston, a 35-year-old cabinet maker from New York visited his parents in central Florida, he couldn't resist building a treehouse in a giant oak tree there, 40 feet up on the banks of the Suwannee River. During the late Spring floods, the river surrounds his home and he has to reach it by boat.
Years and years ago I promised myself I'd have one of these one day, as soon as I was old enough to buy one. And I'm already thirty. I don't even have a drivers license yet. Seriously - at this rate if I don't start planning towards this dream right away I'll be 60 before I get one, and the thing will be so vintage by then it won't even run anymore.
Check out the styling on this beauty. If she was mine I'd call her Bibi Battlecruiser. She has the classic curves of the Isetta - and everyone who knows me well knows that the Isetta is my favourite car of all time, so this little beauty is really doing a number on me. I so badly just want one, an empty but running shell that I can convert and make my own. I reckon this dream is fantastic enough to inspire me to finally overcome my fear of driving and get the license.
I only hope I feel the same way tomorrow.
