MUSIC

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

MUSIC

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

» A strategy for developing nations that "calls for the establishment of Hong Kong-like 'charter cities', special zones within developing countries with better rules and institutions." SEE ALSO: "Former astronaut Franklin Chang-Diaz explains how a new rocket engine from his Ad Astra Rocket Company could make space travel faster, cheaper, and safer, and why we need space-based nuclear power." REWIND: "The idea that robot soldiers would inevitably replace human troops pops up repeatedly in newspapers of the 1930s. The emergence of humanoid robots, however primitive, lent themselves to people thinking about the human toll of the first World War and how it might be avoided in future wars." [09.29.2009 03:00 pm]

ELSEWHERE: "During a bizarre hearing [in Burlington County, NJ], a Superior Court judge dismissed animal-cruelty charges against a Moorestown police officer accused of sticking his penis into the mouths of five calves in rural Southampton in 2006, claiming a grand jury couldn't infer whether the cows had been 'tormented' or 'puzzled' by the situation or even irritated that they'd been duped out of a meal." NOT RELATED: Katt Williams: Pimpadelic, a new DVD being relased on October 13th, features "exclusive never before seen concert footage and an incredible rare, sit down, in-depth interview with the comedian himself. Extra features include an additional bonus concert footage that had long been considered lost." [09.29.2009 02:00 pm]
