Oh, and if you haven’t been to the front page in a while – we have a whole slew of fantastic T-Shirts for sale in the Rise Shop – click on the annoying blinky button down on your left – or go here. If you see a design you like, and wish it came on a different shirt (or other item) just drop us a line {jquinn -at- rise-ind.com) and I can whip one right up for you. How’s that for service?

I stuck some new things over in the Flickr page – photos from the super-fantastic Super Furry Animals and Caribou show at the Avalon last night, and the photos from our first Turkey dinner cooking experience, with much Katamari playing. Click on Flickr over there on the sidebar to see all them pretty pictures.

Over at UTI, is a fantastic post on What it feels like to be an atheist. Yes, it is like that. Makes we want to write a bit about the topic as well, particulary in the face of the coming holiday season.

Ok. So this film has been linked around quite a bit this week – I have seen it at TMN and at Coudal, but if you have not seen it yet you really have to take a look. Its a camera, strapped to a Ferrari 275 GTB, running through the middle of Paris at 4am at speeds up to 140 mph. No permit, no road closures, amazingly no accidents, but looks like he scared the hell out of a lot of pedestrians, drivers, and birds. The sound is great too.

TMN has a great article discussing New Urbanist plans to rebuild New Orleans – do we really need a nostalgia fueled village where a diverse city once stood?

“New Urbanism works great in very specific circumstances—upper-middle-class subdivisions, seaside resorts, downtown commercial centers—but it is less applicable to large, mixed-income communities, let alone working-class places like the Mississippi coast.”
