Trent: “This song is a song that I really liked. It was on the album, Year Zero and it’s one of those ones that are really deep in the album; I don’t think anyone made it that far or even mention it. And at rehearsals last week, we were trying some things out and we played this song and a friend of mine was in the audience and he came up to me afterwards and he said, “You know, that’s one of my favorite songs that you ever recorded.” You know what? Thanks, man! We’re gonna try to play that as much as we can on this tour. We’re gonna send this one out to our friend Andrew.”
San Francisco Batkid is the best thing to happen this week
And maybe even the best thing ever. Who could say no to a young boy who’s celebrating beating his cancer into remission?
Downtown San Francisco, thanks to the Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area Foundation, city officials and the work of thousands of volunteers, turned into a Gotham City today, complete with villains like the Riddler and Penguin, just waiting for a tiny caped crusader to swoop in.
The San Francisco Chronicle even published a limited-edition “Batkid Saves City” issue.
Read more on young Miles’ struggle, and his eventual superheroics, over at L.A. Now and Share It Now. And if you’re so inspired, head over to the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s site and perhaps help make more dreams come true (once their site is done being swamped by bat-traffic).

Tom Hiddleston’s ass appreciation post.
No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.
