We’re almost there, and I’m hoping that it still comes up this year. I don’t know whether it will. I can’t predict that.”

RoadChinese University students to take HIV test: “University students in East China’s Zhejiang province are to undergo physical examinations in an effort to get an accurate picture of the HIV/AIDS infection rate among the student population. The results will help related departments work out detailed and effective measures to control and prevent the disease from spreading further, according to Zhejiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is running the program. The move comes after the Hangzhou branch of the CDC found eight HIV carriers during a spot check of 2,000 university students at three universities, a case rate of 0.4 percent.”

    wow a Caribou shoutout! I was expecting to find out he was gay, but it was just a great little interview and reminder of how incredibly beautiful his new album is (I also really loved his last one).

  2. alguien says

    once i learned that caribou’s album was partially mixed by junior boys’ jeremy greenspan, it piqued my interest. i’ll definitely download it.

    too chilling about that x factor kid and with that tory slag criticizing the asylum program in the UK, it’s all just ugly.

  3. Jordan says

    The “Never underestimate the power of your actions” story should be at the very top of this post, not buried away within it. True or not, it’s beautiful.

  4. says

    I agree with Jordan. True or not, I can think of similar situations in my life that made monumental differences. I even mentioned one to a friend once who didn’t even remember how he had helped me. But to this day it is still profound.

    John Barrowman and ‘West End Bares’?

    he’ll be the first one to bare, and probably all; he will do it at the drop of a hat.

    wish i could be there…

  6. MikeInSanJose says

    I think Reynolds will make a great Hal Jordan/GL. Any word on who’s playing Carol Ferris?

    What did they do to his suit? What’s with all the little panels and the sparkly lights? He looks like Plant Man (he’s not ugly enough to be Swamp Thing), not Green Lantern. Back in the day, the real Green Lantern (not to be confused with the Golden Age Green Lantern, the blond and handsome Alan Scott) had a costume that was just black and green with the white gloves and the emblem in the middle of his chest. Very tasteful and under-stated.

    That wasn’t good enough?

    Kids these days…

    That “Never Underestimate The Power of Your Actions” Was Profound, and will probably be mocked by the small-minded, evil little bitches on this site (Tank?).

    I happened to like it very much, and could appreciate the honest lesson it offered.

  8. Motard says

    OMG – I was just on a cruise with Willie Aames. He’s apparently been working for the cruise lines since a recent divorce or somesuch.

    And, god bless ‘im – looks at least slightly less haggard than that photo.
