>> Favorite Radio Show
Dave: For some weird reason, the David Lee Roth morning radio show (now defunct). DLR replaced Howard Stern's time slot at KROQ after "the king of all media" made the jump to satellite radio. I'm not sure, but I don't think that David Lee Roth had too many credentials other than the fact that he was a wacky personality that used to tear shit up in the 80's as the frontman of Van Halen, but for some reason KROQ thought it would be a great idea to give him a daily weekday show at 6 in the morning.
Don't get me wrong, this show totally sucked ass in a major way. I used to show up to Battles practice and bitch about how lame the show was that morning. I used to want to call in to the show to tell him how much I thought he was the shit when he was in Van Halen and how much he totally sucks now. His jokes were wicked lame, his stories made absolutely no sense, his whole staff sucked, and he would play really lame music while he talked over it. I totally hated this show, it was like listening to a car crash every morning. It only lasted for a couple months, and as the show got older and people kept calling in and doggin' DLR, the higher-ups at KROQ started to take more stuff away from him, he could no longer play that lame music while he talked; they took away his staff and replaced it with a super-dry Australian guy that had absolutely no chemistry and nothing in common with DLR. Towards the end he was a defeated man; he was fired and the show was taken off the air.
However, almost a year and a half has gone by, and, in retrospect, I now realize that David Lee Roth was really trying to push some boundaries, and as much as his show may have sucked, he really managed to, for better or worse, strike a chord with me. I started to feel bad for him towards the end of the show, I felt how he realized that there could be something better than your average "Mike and the Mad Dog" type shit and he strived for something outside of the box, and the higher-ups cut him back down to size. Thus, DLR is my, in recent memory favorite radio show, he was a man that stood up for mankind and held a mirror up to those fat corporate cats sitting in their cushy office chairs in their safe well-constructed glass boxes that they work within and in a way, said, I dare you to challenge the state of this dystopian society that we've created for ourselves. DLR was, to your average plumber in New Jersey, unsuccessful in his attempt at being a radio show host, but to the artist that dwells within all of us, he was a beacon of light.

"Discovery News reports that scientists have identified a region of the brain which appears to control morality and discovered that a powerful magnetic field can scramble the moral center of the brain, impairing volunteers' notion of right and wrong. 'You think of morality as being a really high-level behavior,' says Liane Young, a scientist at MIT and co-author of the article. 'To be able to apply (a magnetic field) to a specific brain region and change people's moral judgments is really astonishing.'"

Kabul Nightlife: Thriving in Between Suicide BombsBy Tim McGirk Tuesday, Apr. 13, 2010
Nightlife may seem like a luxury no one can afford in Kabul. The Afghan capital is hit by suicide bombers with depressing regularity, and on some nights expatriates receive word from their embassies that a suicide team is plotting to attack a "foreign guest house" — and these are the truly chilling words — "in your neighborhood." On those occasions, you sleep with your clothes on and shoes beside the bed, after having mapped out an escape route over the wall into your (hopefully friendly) neighbor's garden.(See a TIME video on the nightlife in Baghdad.)
But on most nights, Kabul's expatriates go out and partake in the manic craziness of the city's bar and restaurant scene in houses reminiscent of America's Prohibition-era speakeasies, behind 20-ft.-tall blast walls and an outer perimeter of armed Afghan security guards. "It's like dancing at the edge of a volcano," explains Anne Seidel, a German architect working for the U.N. in Kabul. The expatriates are a boisterous crowd of young and usually single diplomats, aid workers, journalists, spies and mercenaries — or, as they like to call themselves, "contractors." Most of them earn $100,000 salaries and have money to burn. They tend to be adventurous, but the security constraints of their jobs often leave them cloistered in claustrophobic boredom — following suicide attacks, most foreigners are confined to their fort-like compounds.
When the dust settles, Kabul has hordes of war-zone entrepreneurs who are only too happy to help lighten the wallets of expatriates while providing opportunities to blow off steam. And that has given the Afghan capital a greater variety of restaurants than Delhi, Karachi or Tehran, cities 10 times its size. Kabul offers Thai cuisine as well as Turkish, Balkan, Italian, French and Persian, plus several steakhouses, a martini bar with a DJ and a Mexican cantina with high-stakes poker games. The city boasts dozens of Chinese restaurants, but a few were shut down several years ago when authorities realized that the owners were offering the services of hookers along with the Kung Pao chicken. Tiger prawns, pork loins and French wines are flown in from Dubai. The T-bone steaks come frozen from Australia.
It takes a special entrepreneurial mentality to look at a city under sporadic siege by jihadists and see a golden opportunity for supplying exotic food and illegal booze. Some restaurateurs have even migrated to Kabul from past wars in the Balkans or East Timor; they missed the wartime camaraderie — and the whopping profits. Some provide echoes of Bertolt Brecht's archetypal war profiteer, the indomitable Mother Courage, who drove a cart through an artillery barrage to make a profit off the sale of 50 stale loaves of bread. A female Thai restaurant owner says she gives a dagger to each of her waitresses to scare off kidnappers in the bazaar — do-it-yourself security at its best.

People making travel plans may unwittingly heed a strange rule of thumb — southern routes rule. In a new experiment, volunteers chose paths that dipped south over routes of the same distance that arched northward, perhaps because northern routes intuitively seem uphill and thus more difficult, researchers suggest.
sciencenewsVolunteers also estimated that it would take considerably longer to drive between the same pairs of U.S. cities if traveling from south to north, as opposed to north to south, says psychologist and study director Tad Brunyé of the U.S. Army Research, Development, and Engineering Command in Natick, Mass., and Tufts University in Medford, Mass. For journeys that averaged 798 miles, time estimates for north-going jaunts averaged one hour and 39 minutes more than south-going trips, he and his colleagues report in an upcoming Memory & Cognition.

Two on a big ocean
Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore met while studying philosophy in college. The two agreed that upon graduating they would sell their collective possessions and leave behind their lives in Denver. They planned to buy a small sailboat and spend the next year living aboard and traveling exclusively under sail. For years this dream was carefully nurtured while preparations were made. Learning to sail and selecting a boat is difficult to accomplish from a landlocked state. Their nautical self-education consisted of a steady diet of how-to books and videos.They were motivated by stories shared by sailors like Joshua Slocum, or Lin and Larry Pardey. On a sailboat minimalism transcends efficiency. There are no schedules, no agendas, or the many concerns that come with modern life. A sailor cares only for the direction of the wind and the condition of the water. Riley and Moore did not want their perception of the world to be shaped by spreadsheets, or facts gleaned in classrooms. They wanted a life of experience unmediated by people or things, a life of intimate participation with their environment. Cell phones, television, household appliances, the conveniences of modern life were traded for simplicity and contentment. A return to evenings spent indulging in the profound silence of the remotest regions, far from the yellowy glow of civilization.
Voyaging along the North Atlantic coastline for seven months at an average speed of five miles an hour lends itself to reordering one’s priorities. The long way is the beautiful one. The hard way is the most rewarding. Two years after completing their 2500 nautical mile voyage, Riley and Moore’s experience has led them to seek out a new endeavor. Their music bears the mark of months spent alone with the sea and each other. It is tinged with the sweet affection of new lovers. It bears the uncluttered aesthetic of time spent in remote and uninhabited regions. Their music is a modest attempt to translate an old truth rediscovered. Their album will be released by Fat Possum in January 2011.

SEATTLE – Some members of the 12th Man ended up in jail over the weekend when Hoquiam Police decided to use last Saturday's playoff game as a way to round up some suspects.
Police figured a lot of people would be home watching the game on TV, so they decided to knock on the doors of those with outstanding warrants.
Twenty-three people were booked into jail. They also missed the end of the game.
