Sorry I haven’t updated in the past three days. I was too busy peeing my pants after watching “The Crazies.”
But lots-o-news has happened around the globe, and here are some tidbits:
1. Earthquake in Chile hit Saturday morning. It hit the Richter Scale at an 8.8 magnitude, hundreds of times stronger than Haiti.

According to NY Times, the death toll is 723 and counting. This quake also triggered what was supposed to be a major tsunami in Hawaii, but it turned out to be a lot weaker than expected. Kind of like Kristen Stewart’s acting.
2. The Olympic Closing Ceremonies was last night, and yeah, I didn’t watch it.

And judging from some of these photos, I’m kind of glad I didn’t. Those giant beavers, mounties, and moose freak me out.
3. Peter Parker is out of a job according to CNN.

Mr. Parker, photographer of the mayor and crime fighter by night, will become unemployed due to the shitty economy, and deal with the hardships that many of us are adjusting to.
According to the article, “In the near future, Parker will have to juggle paying bills and buying ‘web-fluid’ and other materials to fix his superhero costume in addition to keeping his dual identities under wraps.”
Now for: Dr. Dog
This psychedelic West-Philly band sounds reminiscent of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Band. With echoing voices, raw guitar chords and gentle harmonies, I’m sure you’ll do a double-take.
I first heard about Dr. Dog in 2007, when they released their “We All Belong” album. And now the boys are back and ready to release their sixth album, “Shame, Shame,” which drops April 6.
To dload some of their awesome tunes, go here. It’s mostly some of their old stuff and some tracks from their EP, but its still treasure’s gold.
