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!

"A groundbreaking transnational legal action might sound like a tall order for a country of 107,000 people whose most high-profile endeavor to date has been hosting the 16th season of Survivor," but "this January, the Federated States of Micronesia, some 8,000 miles away in the Pacific Ocean, lodged a legal challenge to the [Czech Republic's] Prunerov plant on the grounds that its chronic pollution threatens the island nation's existence." The lawsuit is certainly a harbinger of The Coming Tide of Global Climate Lawsuits. EARLIER THIS YEAR: "Tiny Kivalina, Alaska, does not have a hotel, a restaurant or a movie theater. But it has a very big lawsuit that might affect the way the nation deals with climate change." SEE ALSO: "A decade ago, the coal and utility industries began to push for the construction of a new generation of coal-fired power plants. Since then, 232 plants have been proposed. The environmental justice movement has defeated 127 of them. Not a single coal-fired plant was built in 2009." Part of the reason rests with Scott Parkin, an organizer with the Rainforest Action Network. "So how did this movement pull off such decisive victories? Parkin says it's all about 'swarming'--the diversity of tactics and targets." [04.21.2010 08:00 am]
