Today I beg of you but also demand you check out the lists of the British mastermind himself Andy Biddulph and the staff's relative new guy Anthony Sorendino - Andy has loud on lock while Anthony is more of a wonderful mixed scene bag.

If you like Kevin Devine, you should check out this piece on PropertyofZack -- seriously, that's the pitch.
One thing is, thereís a part of me that thinks Iím not radical enough. That Iím actually worse than someone who is politically ignorant because I have been exposed to all of these things, but I havenít fully gotten into some extreme way of living. I think itís been really torturous for some women that Iíve been in relationships with because Iíve had these bouts of ďwe donít do enoughĒ for picking the cause. Itís this really vague thing. What Iíve come to realize as Iíve gotten older is that thereís an invisible council in my head. If I am not taking care of myself, no matter what...

Today an appeals court in Washington struck down the FCC's net neutrality rules. A good summary of what this means can be found on Gigaom by Jeff Roberts.
The upshot of Tuesdayís ruling is that it could open the door for internet giants like Verizon and Time Warner to cut deals with large content providers ó say Disney or Netflix ó to ensure that their web content was delivered faster and more reliably than other sites. This could not only restrict consumer choice but also provide a threat to smaller websites that do not have the resources to pay for any ďexpress lanesĒ that the broadband providers but choose to create.

Erik Nielson and Charis E. Kubrin, writing for The New York Times, have published an article that looks at a New Jersey Supreme Court case that will determine if rap lyrics can be used as evidence of a crime.
