From Citysol’s website
Solar One presents Citysol 2007, a clean-energy-powered festival that aims to inspire interest and support for local sustainability intiatives through, music, interactive art installations, games and workshops, and numerous other elements meant to both entertain and educate.
Sustainability is at bottom a cultural project before it is a technical or political one, and cities — particularly New York City — are centers of constant transformation that reflect, invent and export civilization’s most progressive dreams. We’re beginning to learn that if the American way of life is to ultimately reconcile with Mother Earth, the journey is more likely to begin on a city street.
Citysol is at once a celebration of our potential as New Yorkers to redefine our expectations of quality of life, and a tribute to the creative community’s central role in revealing that potential. It is also, of course, an opportunity to have an enormous amount of fun.

To walk out of Iraq right now would plant a seed that ultimately would lead to destabilization there, hundreds of thousands of deaths, loss of our influence in the region, would create instability throughout the Middle East throughout East Asia, throughout Europe. And sooner or later it would come to our shores, to a shopping mall near you.

From I Am Fuel
Jesse Harris is from New York City, and is probably most famous these days for being the guy who wrote much of the ubiquitous, breathy Norah Jones album Come Away With Me, and won a whole boatload of Grammy Awards (the year I was there, actually). Feel is his newest album in a string of seven, coming out July 10th on Velour Recordings.
Jesse Harris is also the man behind the entire soundtrack for Ethan Hawke’s new film The Hottest State. Jesse wrote all the songs in a continuous suite, which are then sung both by him and also artists such as The Black Keys, Bright Eyes, Willie Nelson, Cat Power, M. Ward, Emmylou Harris, and Feist.
He normally gets on our nerves, but we must admit Michael Moore kinda gave Blitzer a long overdue ass kicking here: [via Gawker]
