quote [ "I always felt like Earl was to the five-string banjo what Babe Ruth was to baseball. He is the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be." ]
I am at a loss for words. One of the greatest players to every pick up a banjo is now gone. You may recognize him as part of the duo that recorded The Beverly Hillbillies theme song.
So apparently Doc is still alive, thanks to Hugh E. for pointing that out.

quote [ A video blog takes over a young man's life. A continuing interactive web series where subscribers' comments can affect the story.
Episode One: I feels someone watching. ]
I normally don't go for vlogs, but this one is quirky, thoroughly addictive and built around an interesting idea.
This should appeal to the voyeurs on SE, even if there is no bewbs.

quote [ Kona has embarked upon what could be the most important bike the company ever developed. Konabiketown.com tracks the design, development, and delivery of Kona 's AfricaBike to African home health care workers. The bikes will aid home health care workers in the delivery of ARV drugs to HIV/AIDS patients in a variety of African countries. ]
Buy a bike for a good cause? That sounds like a win/win situation to me!
You can also "adopt" a bike, but riding your own is more fun.
