Baby it's cold out there...

...and it's getting colder

Our friends over at Owley Patrol posted two perfect songs for this exact moment.

Till There Was Ringo

If you think too hard you'll hurt your brain thinking about how famous The Beatles were.

Poor Pete Best

Forward Thinking

An interesting story from the other day about how some pet owners have made plans for the care of their animal in case of the owners death.

Owners encouraged to care for pets' future in estate planning

"A Los Altos group, 2nd Chance 4 Pets, says that an estimated 2 or 3 percent of the 8 million to 12 million companion animals that go into animal shelters each year are there because their owners have died or can no longer care for them"

Time Travel

Shit, I love this band.

I'm proclaiming that my favorite record of 2008 is Beach House's Devotion, it makes me fucking shiver everytime I listen to it.

I still can't get enough of their first record that came out in 2006, in fact I consider that record one of my top favorites for 2007. It's like Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, it never falls off the charts. (BTW, listening to Devotion has seriously put a dent in the amount of atttention that has been directed towards the Mac's Rumours/Tusk era the past two months, more on that in another post)

This post is already in the future so no need to time travel back here in twelve months.

You love their first single Gila, how warm is that organ sound, how hot is that guitar lead, how blown is your mind.

BFF - Tom & Jerry

"Scientists at Tokyo University say they were able to successfully switch off a mouse's instinct to cower at the smell or presence of cats — showing that fear is genetically hardwired and not learned through experience, as commonly believed."

Night Lights

I guess this would come in handy if the power goes off...but I have to say this sounds like bad news to me.

South Koreans clone cats that glow in the dark

"South Korean scientists tinkering with fluorescence protein genes say they have bred white Turkish Angora cats to glow red under ultraviolet light"

Get Detective Sprinkles on this case...

The secret double life of Sergeant Podge is baffling his owners.
By day he is a sleepy, home-loving moggy. But by night he has more distant horizons.
Owner Liz Bullard has no idea where he goes. All she knows is that he needs a lift home.
