» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

 » Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!

Simply put, this 24-hour concert series, organized by Live 8 producer Kevin Wall, former US vice-president and climate crusader Al Gore, and the Alliance for Climate Protection, is directed at "inspiring behavioral changes" to combat global warming.

Taking place on 07/07/07, the series is comprised of festivals spread across seven continents that will bring together more than 100 music artists and 2 billion people in hopes of triggering a global movement to solve the climate crisis. Events will take place at Giants Stadium in New York, USA; Wembley Stadium in London, UK; Aussie Stadium in Sydney, Australia; Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Maropeng at the Cradle of Humankind in Johannesburg, South Africa; Makuhari Messe in Tokyo, Japan; the Steps of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai, China; and HSH Nordbank Arena in Hamburg, Germany, and will be broadcast live by MSN.

Leading up to the series people anywhere in the world can bid on festival tickets, travel packages, and other special pre-event items at the eBay Live Earth auction. For post-event items like signed memorabilia from the concerts, check back to the eBay auction site after Thursday, July 12. Funds from the eBay auctions will go to benefit The Alliance for Climate Protection, so don't be shy about shelling out some cash!

And before you hop online and make plans to fly to some far-flung location, be sure to calculate your personal carbon footprint and find out how to cut down on your climate-changing habits.
