Local Travel gaining momentum

Posted by deborahmclaren on May 7, 2010

For many reasons. I just read an Alternet piece that considers the impact of rising petrol on air travel. Read it yourself:

WILL PEAK OIL TURN FLYING INTO SOMETHING ONLY RICH PEOPLE CAN AFFORD?
By Sam Kornell, Miller-McCune.com
Expert physicist: 'At $150 dollars a barrel, the air
industry is barely viable. At $200 a barrel, it's going to
[be] something that only rich people do.'

Where the hell is Matt? Dancing Badly Around the World

Posted by deborahmclaren on May 5, 2010

An Aussie video head without a job finds a way to travel the world by dancing very badly. On his website you can learn about Matt and some of the people he dances badly with. I love the one from South Africa!  Here’s a sample from “About” Matt:

Matt has a little piece of extra cartilage sticking out on the rim of one ear and a little hole in the same place on the other ear. Since saying so on this page, he’s been informed that the extra piece of cartilage is called a Darwinian Tubercle. Matt thinks this is pretty much the greatest name for anything ever.
