Check out the New WTC in the downtown Manhattan Skyline. The 100th floor was just completed and by the end of May it will officially be taller than the Empire State--the tallest building in New York. And in just one year's time it will be the tallest structure in North America, restoring that glorious title of grandeur to the place where it rightfully belongs: The Big Apple.

Governors Ball--New York City's premiere summer music festival--heads into its second year this June with some notable improvements. For starters, the location has moved from Governors Island to the more accessible Randall's Island Park. This will create much smoother transportation to and from the venue and will also provide an unrivaled view of the Manhattan skyline. Furthermore, this year's lineup boasts some of the biggest names in music today--artists like Beck, Passion Pit, Modest Mouse and Fiona Apple among many others--will perform over 2 unforgettable days without any overlapping sets. This is almost unheard of, as most festivals involve the dreaded process of having to decide between bands you love playing concurrently. Governors Ball has eliminated this annoying tradition so that you can see every band you paid to see. On top of that, they have also extended the sales of advance tickets for two more days so you can save $20 by ordering yours between now and this Friday (4/20). Last year's GB was one of the most entertaining events of the summer and 2012's is shaping up to be even better. Don't miss out.

This was the first 2-5-6-3 triple play in over 130 years of baseball. It happened on a controversial attempted bunt in the 9th inning of a game between the Dodgers and the Padres. The ump appears to signal a dead ball, but the catcher plays it to third and three outs quickly ensue. Was it legit? Watch and judge for yourself:

Here's a funny recent skit courtesy of Saturday Night Live. I would have watched it, but I was busy hiking in Brentwood. I took Beverly all the way to Santa Monica and then swung north for a few exits on the 405 in order to cut over to Sunset. You definitely want to avoid San Vicente that time of day.

Recently on the Revolting Blog, you may remember, we published a self-aware post regarding the traffic surge associated with pictures of scantily clad women. To illustrate this point, we of course accompanied said piece with numerous pictures of scantily clad women. This was a little more than 2 weeks ago and it has already gone on to become, by far, the most popular single post in this proud blog's history. Mission accomplished, I guess. Except that I feel cheap and slutty for what I have done. Now, in order to restore my sense of rich, prudeness, I present to you more pictures of beautiful boobs...Except this time, I shall accompany these artful renderings of the fine female form with an impassioned call to action for environmentalists everywhere. Lovers of chestiness and clean air unite! (Note: This should include the entire human population)
The significance of reducing our dependence on oil is three-fold: Environmental, Economic and
Political. Of course, if we were to stop burning fossil fuels at the alarming rate of today,
we would begin to see a reverse in the accumulation of Greenhouse Gases in our atmosphere,
hence insuring that we all had cleaner air to breath, which in turn, would help reverse
the horrifying, exponential rise in cancer that has defined the past 40 years.
