Burnin’ down the house. The new prediction is that the Artic Ice Cap disappears by 2030, not 2080.

The Oil companies are about as interested in finding renewable Energy Sources as I am in appearing on the Dr. Phil Show.


If I can't be Bob Dylan, then I might like to be David Byrne

Burning Down the House restored my faith in music. Stopped me dead in my tracks the first time I head it.
All that energy on stage...could hook it up and save some coal, ya think?
