This is important. Stop big cat hunting. This literally is making me cry.

I am deeply saddened and shocked over the current legislation that is now in place against the LGBT community here in Russia. In my opinion, it is inhumane and it is isolating. Some people have demanded that because of this legislation, I must not come here to Russia. But many, many more people asked me to come and I listened to them. I love coming here.
I want to show them and the world that I care and that I don’t believe in isolating people. Music is a very powerful thing. It brings people together irrespective of their age, their race, their sexuality, or their religion. It does not discriminate. Look around you tonight. You see men, women, young and old, gay and straight. Thousands of happy Russian people enjoying the music. We’re all here together in harmony, and harmony is what makes a happy family and a strong society."
Who got nominated for Grammy Awards? See which acts are up for honors at the 56th annual show, airing Jan. 26 on CBS.
Answer: Most of the wrong people. Quite frankly I’m more interested in the People’s Choice Awards at this point.
If I were certain artists I would raise absolute and utter hell at the Album of the Year nominations…
The Twitter Mandela Hall Of Shame
DON”T LET THESE PEOPLE LIE TO YOU!!!!!!
Not Frantz Fanon, my hat’s off to you. Amazing!
Congratulations are in order, children. Big ups to Jane Chardiet who shot this cover for Pharmakon’s ‘Abandon’! Pitchfork named it one of the best album covers of 2013! Congrats, boo!!!! follow her genius here!
There are many people in America who have no moral right to quote Nelson Mandela, and ride this sudden wave of interest about him…
If you have ever been supporting George W. Bush and his War in Iraq - especially, if you have voted for Bush in 2004 - you are entitled to share Mandela’s memes ONLY with a public admission that you were wrong…
The best way to honor Mandela’s Legacy would be to listen to wise men in the USA AND around the World BEFORE they die…
"Why is the United States behaving so arrogantly?" he asked. "All that (Mr. Bush) wants is Iraqi oil," he said.
He accused Mr. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair of undermining the United Nations and U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who is from Ghana.
"Is it because the secretary-general of the United Nations is now a black man? They never did that when secretary-generals were white," he said.
He said Mr. Bush was “trying to bring about carnage” and appealed to the American people to vote him out of office and demonstrate against his policies.
X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has dropped a mysterious hint on Twitter today…
… I’m not embarrassed to say I’m emotional about this because I know I’m not alone…
Ancient Human DNA Suggests Twisted Roots at Base of Human Family Tree
Scientists have sequenced DNA from the 400,000-year-old remains of an early human found in the Sima de Los Huesos cave in Spain. It not only shatters the record for the oldest human DNA sequence ever obtained, but is also forcing scientists to question what we thought we knew about human origins.
Traditionally, scientists have compared the measurements and proportions of these skeletons in order to place our ancestors along the human family tree and evolutionary timeline. The skeleton up top, from the Spanish cave, is classified as Homo heidelbergensis, a group of human relatives from Europe who, according to the bones, are thought to be the ancestors of Neanderthals.
But new and powerful DNA sequencing technology has given us the ability to stitch together sequences from older and more degraded DNA samples than we ever thought possible (I wrote about a 700,000-year-old horse sequence earlier this year for WIRED). The sequences in the Los Huesos DNA don’t agree with the old bone story.
The sequence shows that this 400,000-year-old DNA is most related to Denisovans, a group of early humans previously only found in Siberia (AKA “not near Spain”). It was also related to Neanderthals, which fits with the old idea, but suggests that there was a lot of interbreeding and migration going on in these groups, even before modern Homo sapiens had left Africa.
The genomic revolution is changing a lot about science, and the study of human origins is one of the fastest evolving (pun intended). This new info has confused the hell out of scientists, frankly, and there’s a lot of work to be done.
The roots of our family tree tell a twisted and gnarled tale, written in fragmented sentences, but modern technology is beginning to bring those lost words to light. Hopefully they aren’t jibberish.
If you were thinking about moving to California or anywhere on the West Coast… don’t.

Wendell is hands down the greatest homeless fashion designer who ever lived. He makes almost all his clothes from things he finds. I hadn’t seen him in awhile, so I was quite thrilled to walk up on him Tuesday, doing this to a Gandhi statue.
