Happy Memorial Day.

Let us take some time today to appreciate what our troops are doing overseas, what they've done to protect us here in the U.S. and around the world. It is sad when people take their work for granted, but we here appreciate what they've done. Thank you.

and Switchfoot also appreciated it. Here's what the Switchfoot boys said via Twitter today:

- Friends, today is significant. Take time to reflect on the huge sacrifices that have been made and continue to be made for our freedom.

Tim Foreman also noted yesterday that:

- My padres just won their ninth straight! -tim



Also, in case you've been wondering about that Past Magazine campaign (see banner at the top of our page), here's an excerpt from an email they sent out recently:

When we launched the campaign, we had no idea what to expect. We knew some readers had offered to help, but we braced for the worst. The response has been phenomenal. Readers, press and even advertisers showed remarkable support. We've been amazed, humbled and inspired.

So far we have raised $148,000! That was the minimum that we needed to keep us going into the summer; we never expected to hit this goal so quickly. Thank you! We have the most amazing readers in the world, and we now know—in a very real way—that we hold this thing called Paste in trust for you and will work diligently to honor that.

We still have a ways to go. Most of our debt will be paid out of revenues when the economy starts to rebound and advertisers return, but we need $300,000 to take care of bills that spiraled up during the ad slump. We're halfway to that goal and more confident than ever that Paste will make it.

If you're one of the thousands that have donated, you have our deepest gratitude. This crazy campaign is working. If you haven't donated solely because you thought the effort was futile, it is not. And just check out those amazing songs that are yours for whatever you want to donate.

^That's incredible. Thanks everyone for donating! =)


Here's a sweet video from Youtube that I found, and enjoyed thoroughly:

Alright, that's it for now. Have a great day!
