Darwin: Change over time

University of Illinois graduate student Mike Rosulek created a this series of Shepard Fairey Obama poster parodies.

Mike is selling t-shirts & posters on Zazzle featuring the Darwin images and he’s donating all the proceeds to the National Center for Science Education (NCSE).

I'm getting all warm and fuzzy

The anticipation for the new GD album is KILLING ME! Rolling Stone just wrote an article that has me dancing around the kitchen. I can't wait to see this creation this summer on tour....Oh release a song, will you! Then again, if it's green day style, they'll have to be very creative with the editing and that's usually a nightmare. Go HERE to read the article.

Don't buy Dole Pineapple!

So I'm reading a promo flyer sent to food industry professionals, and I find this little blurb:

"May 10- Mother's Day, the Biggest Restaurant Day of the Year. Cash in on everybody's favorite person."

Cash in? Cash in? F-U! from this moment on, I will never buy Dole pineapple, and let everyone I know their stance that mom's shouldn't be celebrated but used.

Green Day 2009

I would almost sell my children but they are big fans too! I'm so excited!!!! Can't you just feel it???

The Ice Champion...the video!

Allison had her first Figure Skating competition today. She competed in Pre Alpha solo and Pre Alpha Compulsories. We were very nervous, because we just spent a week at the beach, but she was very well prepared and took First Place in both events!!!

Here's a very rough version of the event, with the professional copy to come in a few weeks. Enjoy!
