Stars

Stars just released its new album "In Our Bedroom After the War." "The Night Starts Here is my favorite song, but it sounds like a cover of a Duran Duran song from the 1980s...I'll do some research to find out.

Thomas Friedman for president...

I watched Tim Russert interview Thomas Friedman last night. I think he should run for office. He is currently working on a book about the "Green Revolution" in America which should be finished by next summer (Green is the New Red White and Blue). He basically likes the direction the US is moving in becoming more environmentally friendly, but does not think we have truly entered a "Green Revolution" yet. After all, Exxon, BP, Shell, and all of the other big oil companies are now "environmentally friendly." He wonders why...during a revolution, there are always losers. His columns are also now available free of charge at the NY Times website.

Mika



Lebanese-born British singer Mika just released his first album, Life in Cartoon Motion. He takes the best elements of Freddie Mercury, the Scissor Sisters, and Elton John and mixes them together to create his own unique style. Check out "Grace Kelly" and "Any Other World."

Paris, Je t'aime


On May 4th, a French film from 2006 is finally debuting here in the US. The film is a series of short love stories each taking place in different parts of Paris. The soundtrack is good too.

A French CNN

This month the French government started a 24-hour news channel called France 24. The news channel gives a "French" view of world events the way BBC gives a British view, CNN gives an American view, and Al-Jazeera gives an Arab view. The channel is scheduled to be broadcast in French, English, and Arabic in France, the Middle East, Africa, and the East coast of the US. I haven't found it listed by Cablevision yet, but you can read the news online.

I'm back from Spain and Morocco

I'm back from my trip to Morocco and Spain. Here's a picture of Celeste, her friend Ayesha, and me in Sevilla. It was great to see Celeste and I'm so happy she was able to rearrange her schedule to be in Sevilla at the same time as me.
