I just added myself to the invite list on www.letmestayforaday.com. The idea behind the website is that Ramon is attempting to travel around the world for free. He is currently in Vancouver and will be exploring the rest of Canada during the coming months. (Now don't be jealous... He thought up the idea first so he's the one who get to travel the world for free.)
One of my favourite albums of all time is Daisies of the Galaxy by the Eels. Check it out if you have the chance. Or else just check out the preview of the new Eels album.
Now that we're on the subject of favourites I'll mention one of my favourite movies, Waking Life. A lot of people wrote off this movie as preachy and / or pretentious but it contains some really thought provoking ideas, (not to mention some amazing visuals). Sit down and watch this movie with an open mind. Let the ideas wash over you as if you are the dreamer and the movie is your very own lucid dream.
Ben Cohen, (co-founder of Ben and Jerry's Ice-cream), created an anti-war television advertisement, featuring hip-hop artist Russell Simmons. All the major network news outlets rejected the commercial. For more information read the article Ben wrote for Alternet, or see the commercial here.
