Sky Blue Sky

So not only did I see the cover for the new Wilco album for the first time today (and for the record, I think its just okay, but that's how I felt about A Ghost is Born's cover when I first saw it), several tracks have leaked somehow.

Shameless Complacency has three of them up. I guess I'll link them too.

Either Way (mp3)
Walken (mp3)
You Are My Face (mp3)

Is it revolutionary? No, not really. But its good, and I like what they're doing. I think they're starting to act their age, and that's okay.

Personally, I'm eager to see what Impossible Germany sounds like, since I remember it being one of my favorites live. I also wish they'd record Is That the Thanks I Get?

I know how I'm saving the planet...

Only a British Scientist would suggest something like this. Want to reduce CO2 emissions? Simply breathe less.

"If we merely cut out one breath in three, we could decrease the amount of CO2 entering the atmosphere each year by a staggering 0.63 gigatonnes. That's the same effect as saving five million acres of land (an area the size of Wales) from deforestation."

What do you suppose this man looks like?

Yeah, that's him on the right. And I have a new hero.
