Catching up on magazines the last couple of weeks. Here's a couple of articles that caught my eye:
Jonathan Alter "He Only Saved a Billion People"
Norman Borlaug, an agronomist, is credited with saving one in seven people through a combination of soil conservation and planting techniques. This is a single person who has made a huge difference in the world.
Best Bra for Every Figure
I think this is fairly self explanatory.
Amy Lee and Shaun Morgan supposedly had a relationship. This song is said to be about their relationship, but you can tell that it was never a very clear path for them.
Call me when you're sober:
Amy Lee is the lead singer in a band called Evanescence. This song is supposed to be about her relationship with Shaun Morgan or the end of her relationship with Shaun Morgan. She broke up with him, married a therapist, and had a baby - then released this song.
But then there's always the Remedy.
When asked if he would release a song in response to "Call me when you're sober":
Morgan recently told MTV, ?People would say to me, ?Yeah, man, I know what you?re going through,? and I was like, ?No, I don?t think you do.? Your ex-girlfriend didn?t write a song about you, that millions of people have heard, saying you?re a bad guy. As soon as that happens, buddy, come up and tell me you know what I?m going through.
I was bummed out. I was really upset that she would say and do those things. In any relationship, I don?t think it?s right to say and do those things when people break up, and she obviously felt the need to go out there and make me sound like a complete a?hole. What can I do? I just refuse to lower myself to that level. But it was a painful thing and it got me down ? people coming up to me on the street and referring to that song. But I didn?t feel the need to write back and be mean.?
It's not as much listening as pondering the relationship drama. But hell, I'm a middle child. What would you expect?
