One

A favorite song of mine is "One" by U2. I'd been hearing about a version of the song with U2 and Mary J. Blige and I went ahead and bought it from iTunes. I have to say it is a hell of a cover of a beautiful song. Mary J. Blige, though I am admittedly unfamiliar with most of her work, has a fabulous voice. She sings parts of the song with such conviction and power it just makes me want to listen to it over and over again.

Anyway - if you like U2 and you like that song, treat yourself to listening to Mary J's version.

Register those alternate Domain names stupid!

Well if we needed proof that the Writer's Guild of America members ARE worth their weight in gold, the move on their part ot set up a parody website of the AMPTP's websiteproves it. Simply put - it is hilarious!

AMPTP did not register/acquire the .com version of their domain name. Since the fella who owned it was willing to sell, the writers bought it (or leased it - not sure) and set up a site that looks exactly like the official site...but with brilliant satirical content.

Here's the story: WRITERS SPOOF SITE; WHAT DOES THE AMPTP KNOW ABOUT THE INTERNET AFTER ALL?

So check out the real site: http://www.amptp.org
And the fake site: http://www.amptp.com
