Let’s hope so. I haven’t been blogging much lately as I’m incredibly busy in my relatively new gig as Interactive Director at Live Earth. Live Earth India is less than three weeks away. Needless to say, it’s great to hear some of the sentiment coming out of the Governors’ Global Climate Summit today in Beverly Hills. As symbolic as it may seem, the key is to keep pumping the message and the desire to aggressively curtail the climate crisis.
Not finding this too funny. Perhaps it will be on November 5th.
Google did a nice blog post today and mashed up some voter registration [mobiletools as well. Project Vote Smart developed a comprehensive API to access information for your own election/vote related mashup can be had And if you’re a sucker for celebrities and whitespace, Google’s got 5 minutes:
After being somewhat underwhelmed by Radiohead from outside Lollapalooza earlier this month, I was completely blown away last night at the Hollywood Bowl. I had looked forward to seeing Radiohead at the Bowl all year as it is my favorite venue — the open [dry] air element lends itself to pristine sound and with the elaborate light/visual show put on by Radiohead’s crew, sitting in the Bowl felt not unlike floating in outer space. Jonny Greenwood is one of the greatest guitarists of our time. I’m saying this now, because, it’s not just his tone and creativity, but his ability to rip away in multiple directions and also disappear into the atmosphere of a song or play straight acoustic. Kind of like Jimmy Page. And while I like to make fun of Thom Yorke for mumbling and moaning incessantly, he was very effective and very sharp utilizing his voice as a melodic instrument. And the guy is no hack at guitar/piano either.
I snuck some short video clips with my crappy digital [still] — it’s worth sharing the handful of 15-second clips combined in the video below to give you an idea of the light show. The sound is horrible on the camera, although it was pristine at the show… and yes, the video may be nauseating, but, hey, you’ve been warned. Further below, the setlist and a few more videos from the end of the show of 1-2 minutes each.
