Diamond Dave

I laughed really, really hard the other night at 5 AM, in bed...shattering the quiet of an entire sleeping neighborhood...listening to this played on some talk radio show... the isolated vocals of David Lee Roths during the recording of the song "Runnin' with the Devil"

I brake for Morrisilly

"It looked like the gig of a lifetime for a Morrissey fan, touring America with the man they call Moz. But our writer lasted barely a day – and still doesn’t know what went wrong"

Far Away Mae

"How many lives did little tabby Gracie Mae use up when she crawled into her owner's suitcase, went through an airport X-ray machine, got loaded onto a plane, thrown onto a baggage belt and mistakenly picked up by a stranger far from home?"

Dog's Best Friend

Dog and cat's friendship continues after death

"...Oscar the dog and his best friend, Arthur the cat, were inseparable in life.

So, when 17-year-old moggy Arthur died, Oscar was left inconsolable. Their owners, Robert and Mavis Bell, buried Arthur in the garden.

But Oscar's love for his friend would not die – and during the night, he pulled the cat from his grave, carried him inside, laid him in the basket they used to share and gently cleaned him up.
Mr Bell found the pair curled up together in the basket. He said: 'Oscar had watched me bury Arthur. They had been inseparable.'

Arthur is now buried in a secure grave in the garden at the Bells' home in Wigan and Oscar has a new playmate kitten called Limpet."

Rise Above

I've spent the last few weeks obsessing about The Dirty Projectors record "Rise Above", which is their re-imagination of the 1981 Black Flag classic "Damaged". It might be all the pretty harmonizing or the Edwyn Collins'ish of singer Dave Longstreth voice but whatever it is, it's working.

Listen first to the Black Flag version and then hear the Dirty Projectors translation.

Non Fiction

"Every Kid in the Universe Wants a Psychic Alien Cat Friend"

From Gawker Media's excellent new Sci-Fi site io9

"Recently, we talked about animal uplift stories, where non-human creatures gain human-like intelligence. Well, there's a subclass of that genre: the smart cat book"

Cats Without Us

This book sounds pretty fascinating..."The World Without Us" by Alan Weisman

"Let us try a creative experiment," Alan Weisman proposes on page three: If humans disappeared from earth, what would happen? To your home, for example. To our cities, farms, and oceans. To the animals that remain. Or to the billion tons of plastic we'd leave behind."

From an interview with the author at The Washington Post

So I assume our pets are toast?
The creatures we have domesticated to the point of dependence would fall prey to predators. Chickens I'm not too confident about. Dogs will eventually lose to competition by coyotes, wolves, other canids. Our cats? You put a cat outside, they start to hunt. Very clever. The cat is here to stay.

According to the 2007-2008 National Pet Owners Survey done by the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association.

Thirty-nine percent of Americans own dogs and 34 percent own cats, but the average dog owner has 1.7 dogs while the average cat owner has 3.4 cats

The average cat owner has had cats for 19 years

78 percent sleep on a family member's bed at night and 68 percent receive gifts.

The top benefit of having a cat, reported by 93 percent of cat owners, is "companionship, love and company." Sixty-four percent of owners said their cat is like a child or family member. And 60 percent said an important benefit is "relaxation/relieves stress."
