Live Earth

I crawled out to the kitchen this morning, turned on the coffeemaker, and heard unusual music coming from the family room. I poked my head around the corner, and there was Mom watching Live Earth. It's all over my cable system, from HD Universal to Bravo to various NBC outposts like MSNBC and CNBC.

I was impressed with Nunatak, the scientists-rockers who played a (surprisingly-good) song in an outdoor setting in Antarctica. It's a five-piece band: guitar, bass, sax, fiddle and drums. I kept thinking that it had to be awfully cold, since they were all bundled up except for their fingers. And how do you play a saxophone when your lips want to stick to the mouthpiece?
