Gene, of Ween (not to be confused with Dean), is a fairly prolific photographer.

And through this NPR interview of the duo, I learned that the name of the band is a combination of "wus" (as in wussy) and "peen" (as in, uh.. peenis).

If you've had problems finding podcasts for the shows you enjoy on NPR, check out the independent site Public Radio Podcasts which has RSS feeds for a lotta lotta good stuff. You can even subscribe to feeds for individual reporters, like Mexico City Correspondent Jason Beaubien, who grew up in the same small town as I (though he is quite a bit older).

As the end of the year approaches, I'm sure you've seen your fair share of dumb "top ten" lists predicting everything from flying cars to a republican administration in 2012 (if we even make it that far).. how about taking a look at the flip side, instead?

The top ten worst predictions of 2008, according to Foreign Policy. The first one is a good for a guffaw:
“If [Hillary Clinton] gets a race against John Edwards and Barack Obama, she’s going to be the nominee. Gore is the only threat to her, then. … Barack Obama is not going to beat Hillary Clinton in a single Democratic primary. I’ll predict that right now.” —William Kristol, Fox News Sunday, Dec. 17, 2006


Another Katydid, I swear, she really did

Funny, that the pink katydid just came up recently, as I came across this just now: The “dying” leaf-mimic katydid.


Trapped - Mental Illness in American's Prisons
Michael considered fate at 16:10   |   Permalink   |   Post a Comment
Our prisons are not only over-run (The prison population in the USA exceeds 2 million, higher than that officially reported by any other country, as a percentage of total population) but they are over-run by the mentally-ill, as well:
A 2006 report by the U.S. Department of Justice shows that the number of Americans with mental illnesses incarcerated in the nation’s prisons and jails is disproportionately high. Almost 555,000 people with mental illness are incarcerated while fewer than 55,000 are being treated in designated mental health hospitals.
Watch the (somewhat disturbing) brief video here.
