Awesome Song Of The Day: Sia - Clap Your Hands

If this song does not make you want to dance, then you have no pulse. This song has a decidedly upbeat sound over the last album and rumor has it that it was produced by the guy from the Bird and Bee. Enjoy!

All The Shiny Young Things

I have not really been following men's fashion week this time, but since I am in need of some male hottie inspiration these days, I thought you might enjoy this too. I know they are way way way too young, but who cares?

Economics Gone Crazy: Poppy Scurge In Afghanistan


I loved reading this article from an economics point of view. In short, what is happening is that for some mysterious reason, poppy crops have been dying. They don't know why.

But, the farmers are blaming the US and Nato because they have been politically trying to disuade them from farming poppy overall.

However, the unintended consequence is that prices are skyrocketing for opium. So, in turn, it is likely that the farmers will want to keep growing the crops and will be encouraged to do so again next year.

So, potential policy take away? Grow massive amounts of poppy to drive prices down?
