A La Carte (11/25)

The Final Nail?
It is probably a bit too early for this, but we can hope. “If you own any shares in alternative energy companies I should start dumping them NOW. The conspiracy behind the Anthropogenic Global Warming myth (aka AGW; aka ManBearPig) has been suddenly, brutally and quite deliciously exposed after a hacker broke into the computers at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka CRU) and released 61 megabytes of confidential files onto the internet.”
Picture Show: Breach
“In the Spring of 2009, the photographer Richard Mosse traveled to Iraq, where he captured arresting images of U.S. soldiers working and living in what used to be palaces of Saddam Hussein. These visions of western soldiers at rest in imperial palaces are both intensely jarring and oddly playful, and they underscore the seemingly ineffable experience of downtime during a military occupation. The transformation of an imperial palace into a site of temporary housing also speaks to the notion that our histories are constantly being rewritten—architecturally, sociologically, globally, and locally.”

Deal of the Day
I’m keeping an eye on Amazon (and other sites) this week just because of all the deals. Today at Amazon you can get a LG Blu-ray player for under $100. That’s hard to beat! “Get superior audio performance and full HD 1080p output with the LG BD270 Blu-ray Disc Player. This Blu-ray player not only plays DVD discs, but Blu-ray Discs as well and it features an HDMI with Cinema mode and 7.1 channels with Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD, and dts-HD.”
