I know I’m not the Music Guy here at F, but on January 31 there’s a lot of new albums being released. The most talked about one is Lana Del Rey’s album, but as for me I’m super excited for Leonard Cohen’s new album “Old Ideas.” Luckily, NPR is streaming Cohen’s new album on it’s website for all those Cohenites out there.
Enjoy, and Happy Thursday!
Life as an artist isn’t all the glamour it’s made out to be. While Chicago artists may have been freezing last week, they were not envying some of their Miami counterparts. The Pool Art Fair was shut down after the operator of the fair and the hotel it was situated in was arrested for operating without a hotel or special events license.
Artists were forced to pick up their art and find new accommodation.

I feel vaguely bad for watching Nature Fights, but it’s also fascinating because, well, it’s a Nature fight. So here are my pics:
Wolves vs. Bison
Shark vs. Octopus
Bat vs. Fish
Hippo vs. Hippo
And here’s some Nature Love:

While millions of Americans are checking their real-life bags this week as they travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, millions more will need to check their emotional baggage.
So check a bag, or carry someone else’s for a while.
And this is for all those who are alone this week.
Spotted horses existed at one point
The New York Times reported a few days ago that researchers had proven the existence of the “spotted horse” seen in the Lascaux cave paintings.
I hope they next prove the existence of the unicorns seen in the Lascaux cave paintings.
Can scientists make our own wondrous Unicorn-themed Jurrassic Park?
A study released on the New York Times Health Blog reports that women who consume a few drinks a week are more likely to develop breast cancer. This comes as a shock to those who were over consuming red wine as a means of preventing heart disease and obesity.
Further adding to the confusion is the proportion in which it was to be consumed, and if it was ever good for women to begin with. There are some who think it was never good for anyone.
Further studies reveal that no matter how much wine, beet, avocado, tobacco or cocaine is consumed, homo sapiens still maintain a 100% mortality rate, +/- 80 years.**
Musical Interlude II
**Though there is substantial evidence that certain behaviors will hasten the onset of mortality, including but not limited to: hard drug use, smoking, drinking too much alcohol/coffee/energy drink and driving, not looking before crossing Michigan Avenue, eating all the Halloween candy in your newsroom, experimenting with explosive technology, picking fights with humans who are 2-3 times your size, taunting wild animals with your expensive steak dinner, taunting Occupy Wall St with your expensive steak dinner, posting embarrassing photos of your significant other on Facebook, traveling to nations that are “code red”,playing William Tell with your significant other, etc.
