"I am not a ranter by any means and I have been pretty quiet about “Pinktober” and what has come to be known as “Pinkwashing” in breast cancer circles, but seeing October 13th advertised as “National No Bra Day” and as a “fun” way to support people with breast cancer has pushed me over the edge."

The singer Pink's recent performance
at the Grammy's evoked this
reaction from comedian Joe Rogan: Her performance was like Jimi Hendrix doing the star spangled banner while Michael Jackson moon walked and Susan Boyle sang back up.
The song, "Glitter in the Air," is from Pink's 2008 album "Funhouse
." Much of that album was Pink's reflections on the breakup of her marriage to motocross
star Carey Hart
. But the story between Pink and Hart doesn't end there... [more inside]

Pink is still the colour
where little girls are concerned, no matter where they grow up - some think propensity for pink is hardwired
into girls. For a stark depiction of how many pink things a five-year-old could possibly own, a Korean photographer photographed boys and girls
with their possessions arranged according to colour.

, the iconic, ephemeral, sadly recently-deceased founder and original frontman of Pink Floyd, recorded several singles and an LP (plus at least one song on their second LP) with the band before his genius was amputated by mental illness and they became an arena rock dinosaur. He also recorded two solo albums, the making of which
was almost as interesting as the gentle, crystalline, almost fractal-like music contained on them. However, as Barrett aficionados have long known, the solo sessions produced many more recordings than were eventually released. Now, though, all known Barrett material that wasn't commercially released has been assembled in a fan-made collection: Have You Got It Yet?, version 2.0
of which has just been released to the world. More download links inside. [more inside]

aka Alecia Moore, aka the hip new face of copyright infringement
. P!nk’s latest video, U + Ur Hand
, [youtube] blatantly appropriates characters created by late New Zealand artist Martin Emond
[possibly NSFW]. No permission was sought or granted, but Illicit Clothing
, which manage’s Emond’s estate, do not feel they have sufficient resources to sue Sony BMG. Nevertheless, they and Emond’s fans are justifiably livid
. It is highly unlikely that Emond, who took his own life in 2004, and whose musical tastes went in a very different direction
, would have felt any different.

Looks like Samsung
is having some interesting problems
with translation. I especially like "This elegant phone can check women's Pink Schedule & Calorie that it helps you to be a woman of sense. It has Voice Dialing funtion.(sic)" What is a Pink schedule?
