Rewind Festival

Forget the Olympics there’s something far more interesting happening near London this summer. OMD, Grandmaster Flash, Kool & The Gang, The Bangles, Mark Almond, Adam Ant, Rick Astley and Jimmy Summerville are just some of the acts performing August 17-19 2012 at the Rewind Festival. The 80s event takes place at Temple Island Meadows, Remenham Farm, Remenham, Henley-on-Thames, Oxon, RG9 3DB. There’s only one problem: it’s sold out! At least we will get some good concert footage on YouTube! Anyone who has an extra ticket and wants to take me a long feel free to let me know.

“The biggest 80s festival in the world!” –

Sunday Sounds: Solar Electricity and OMD

The Sun

It was sunny and warm in New York the past two days. I hiked at Tallman Park and then walked the Pier at Piermont which shoot outs about half way into the Hudson River. I’m one of the few people happy to see our economy tank hard beacuse it’s pushing green tech. The song “Electricity” by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark was recorded in 1978 but every one should put it on their iPod, walk outside and stare at some trees and give it a listen:

Our one source of energy
The ultimate discovery
Electric blue for me
Never more to be free
Nuclear and HEP
Carbon fuels from the sea
Wasted electricity

Our one source of energy
All we need to live today
A gift for man to throw away
The chance to change
has nearly gone
The alternative is only one
The final source of energy
Solar electricity

E . . .

This song ties into a new job I hope to be starting soon. It’s time to sign up and help nature. We are not going to make it into outer space so soon so we need this air here breathable. By the way there is one very easy thing you can do today to help the environment: click here
