Remember Bush-Cheney Does anyone remember George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? They were president and vice president a mere eight years ago. Does anyone out there remember the way things were at the end of their duo? It was terrible...

Mass Shootings And Gun Control The largest mass shooting in U.S. history occurred December 29,1890, when 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee in South Dakota were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection.” The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms...

Families Need Representation When one party dominates the Michigan administration and legislature, half of Michigan families are not represented on the important issues that face our state. When a policy affects the non-voting K-12 students, they too are left out, especially when it comes to graduation requirements...

Raise The Minimum Wage I wanted to offer a different perspective on the issue of raising the minimum wage. The argument that raising the minimum wage will result in job loss is a bogus scare tactic. The need for labor will not change, just the cost of it, which will be passed on to the consumer, as it always has...

Make Cherryland Respect Renewable Cherryland Electric is about to change their net metering policy. In a nutshell, they want to buy the electricity from those of us who produce clean renewable electric at a rate far below the rate they buy electricity from other sources. They believe very few people have an interest in renewable energy...

Settled Science Climate change science is based on the accumulated evidence gained from studying the greenhouse effect for 200 years. The greenhouse effect keeps our planet 50 degrees warmer due to heat-trapping gases in our atmosphere. Basic principles of physics and chemistry dictate that Earth will warm as concentrations of greenhouse gases increase...

Eels offer up a new album Tomorrow Morning

Kristi Kates - May 31st, 2010
Eels Offer Up New Album Tomorrow Morning
Eels are dropping their newest album this August, and will preface the album’s release with a world tour set to kick off on August 3. Eels frontman E (aka Mark Oliver Everett) says that the new set, Tomorrow Morning, will complete an album trilogy that began with 2009’s Hombre Lobo and January 2010’s End Times, and will be released on the Eels’ own E Works Records label. The tour itself will begin in Santa Ana, California, and will continue through a series of Japanese, Australian, UK, and European dates before returning to the U.S. in September for stops in Philly (9/22), Toronto (9/29), and Detroit’s own Crofoot on September 30...
Pulp frontman turned solo artist Jarvis Cocker has just dropped an album in support of the UK’s National Trust, which preserves natural and historic places across the nation. The album, dubbed simply National Trust: The Album, is available now as a free download from www.nationaltrust.org.uk, and consists of “tranquil sounds” recorded at various nature locations as run by the trust, including what Cocker calls “a holiday for the ears” mix of water, clocks ticking, and ducks. Cocker also enthuses that the album enables the listener to virtually visit over a dozen National Trust properties in half an hour, which he hopes will inspire them to visit - and help save - the sites themselves...
Rogue Wave, whose latest album, the critically-acclaimed Permalight was released earlier this spring, are set to hop on the tour bus this summer for a mid-season tour. Kicking off in Nevada on July 14, the trek will include two weeks’ worth of live dates, plus a stop at this year’s Lollapalooza Fest in Chicago. Additional shows for the band will take place in Denver (7/17), at Detroit’s Magic Stick (7/20), in Pittsburgh (7/21), Baltimore (7/29), and at Cleveland’s Grog Shop (8/3); while on tour, the band will shoot a new music video for Permalight’s current single, Solitary Gun...
And for you music and baseball fans currently reveling in the return of baseball season, you’ll be happy to hear that John Fogerty - whose song “Centerfield” has been an anthem at baseball games - will become the only musician ever inducted into the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame on June 29. Lifelong baseball fan Fogerty is set to perform that very same song at the induction ceremony, and to celebrate, he’s also releasing a remastered version of the Centerfield album that will include a couple of rare B-side singles...
