Shell dumps hydro, wind, and solar

Shell will no longer invest in renewable technologies such as wind, solar and hydro power because they are not economic, the Anglo-Dutch oil company said today. It plans to invest more in biofuels..... pretty interesting stuff. Despite Al Gore's propaganda I predict we will see more of this. Alternative energy is just not cost effective, and when it comes down to it Americans are not going to double their electrical bills to run on solar or some other fantasy.

Nightline Vinyl

ABC's Nightline does the obligatory "They still make Vinyl Records" story - good-golly wow! even though it's Nightline's piss, I like seeing the old record pressing plant and indie record stores. Although I wish records were getting cheaper, as they increase in popularity the price keeps going up too. Scored some goodies this past weekend Denver's legendary Wax Trax Records. Hard to believe I've been going there for 24 years.....

Paul's Boutique remastered

when someone asks what the album of MY GENERATION was/is I have two answers, the first is the Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique from 1989, the second is the Stone Roses first record from 1988. For me and my circle of people these albums are the stuff of legend. I was 19 when Paul's Boutique came out and I bought it the day it came out on vinyl in New Orleans. It's too easy to rave about it today, but in the time it was released it was more than epic. I haven't heard the remaster yet, but I'm betting they loudened it up a bit. Anyway the links here are to the new site dedicated to the album. Enjoy.
