MUSIC

 » 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.

MUSIC

 » 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!

Run on renewable energy and built on the principle of Do It Yourself, the Camp for Climate Action is an English activist/retreat centered around "low-impact living, debates, learning skills, and high-impact direct action" aimed at raising awareness of and curbing contributions to climate change. The event is operated by consensus, rather than by a staff or crew, and is set up to provide more than 80 workshops on sustainable living topics ranging from home composting to young people's rights.

Last year the event took place on a field in Yorkshire for 10 days, but the 2007 event, running from August 14th to the 21st, will be held at London's Heathrow Airport. The location of the 2007 camp is a direct response to aviation's direct impact on global warming. Although this year's event will continue to utilize direct action en mass in an attempt to "disrupt the activities of the airport and the aviation industry, in the interests of public safety, there will be no attempt to blockade runways."

Organizers (or, citing their somewhat anarchist bent, perhaps just the person updating the website) recommend bringing the usual camping items - tent, sleeping bag, personal hygiene items, recycled toiletpaper, bottle opener, bug repellent, solar lights - and leaving your vehicle (and, sadly, your dog) at home.

For those North Americans interested in participating but unwilling (it would sort of defeat the purpose, especially this year) to fly to Europe, there will be two camps in the United States during the same dates, one west of Portland, Oregon, at the mouth of the Columbia River, and the other in the progressive Appalachian college town of Asheville, North Carolina.
