Tell a friend history of zero

history of zero

Oh, what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, what’ll you do now, my darling young one?
I’m a-goin’ back out ‘fore the rain starts a-fallin’,
I’ll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest,
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty,
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters,
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison,
Where the executioner’s face is always well hidden,
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten,
Where black is the color, where none is the number,
And I’ll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it,
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it,
Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’,
But I’ll know my song well before I start singin’,
And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard,
It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall.

Tell a friend Halloween costumes for your iPod

iAttire iPod costumes

It’s hard to imagine anyone burning $39.99 on something this useless, but I suppose the same could be said for a fattening restaurant meal. Apparently it’s not a gag.

But is this thing for real? I don’t remember "the Book of Jobs" in the Bible:

“But now bring me a man who plays music. And when the man played music, the groove came upon them.”

— 2 Jobs 3:15

Tell a friend Sudanese hip hop artist Emmanuel Jal

Emmanuel Jal

Before he became a hip hop artist, Emmanuel Jal had been a child soldier and a "Lost Boy" in Sudan. He now advocates for peace and works with the Campaign to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers. You can listen to Terry Gross’s interview with him on NPR’s Fresh Air. The interview includes excerpts of his music, which is both haunting and uplifting.
