A couple weeks ago I profiled Andy Rehfeldt, a musician who changes the instrumentation on pop hits only keeping the original vocal. He’s done it again and I prefer this version of ‘Paparazzi’ to the original.


Caddyshack is a 1980 American comedy cult classic directed by Harold Ramis. It stars Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield, Ted Knight, Michael O’Keefe and a career defining performance from Bill Murray. The plot: An exclusive golf course has to deal with a brash new member and a destructive dancing gopher. Doesn’t sound like much of a story line for one of the all time great comedies but eighties films are awesome so whatever. Please enjoy the genius of Bill Murray as he sets off for a side-splitting round of fairway foolishness. Eat, Drink and Be Murray!

“A flute without holes, is not a flute. A donut without a hole, is a Danish.”

The day is designed to “inspire awareness and appreciation” for the Earth’s environment. The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 and the campaign was founded by Gaylord Nelson, a US Democratic senator. This year, Earth Day 2010 will coincide with the World People’s Conference on Climate Change, to be held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and with the International Year of Biodiversity.

We also have a new Google doodle for the search engine to celebrate. That’s how you know it’s for real. With this year’s Google doodle, it’s designed to help remind everyone that the Earth is a very special part of us that we need to take care of. IF you are observant enough you will see six parrots in the doodle that apparently means something like, “Go take a shower hippies!” Okay, that was a joke, calm down and go do something useful like the recycling.
