Abandoned car cemetery spends years rusting in spooky Belgian forest
Despite the resemblance to a grim doomsday traffic jam, these abandoned cars are in reality parked in an old junkyard on the west side of Chatillon, a small village near Ardennes, Belgium. The rusty retro vehicles have been sitting there for 70 years, plenty of time for the surrounding wilderness to almost overtake them.

A debut novel by Yelena Akhtiorskaya puts a fresh, comic spin on the age-old coming to America story. Her novel is called Panic in a Suitcase and Fresh Air book critic Maureen Corrigan has a review: 

I can’t tell you the names of my great-grandparents, left behind in Poland and Ireland, because nobody ever mentioned them.  The break was that final.  
These days of course, it’s different.  Within the space of a few hours, people can fly across oceans; through skyping and e-mail, they can electronically commute between Old World and New.  Three cheers for The March of Progress, right?  Except, if you want to make a definitive break how can you when the Old World is always calling you on the phone, texting, and crashing on your living room couch for extended visits? That’s the crucial question Yelena Akhtiorskaya mulls over in her sharply observed and very funny debut novel, Panic in a Suitcase.  Akhtiorskaya, who was born in Odessa and emigrated to the Russian immigrant enclave of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn at the age of seven, writes of the fictional Nasmertov family, whose move from Old World to New imitates her own.

Reposting because hearing that a fan at @warpedtour would steal from one of the most earnest, DIY non-profits on the road is beyond heartbreaking.
There’s no corporate bullshit with @shirtsforacure - just a crew with a love a music, selling band shirts to help cancer patients in need.

100% of the proceeds from #SFAC band t-shirts go to a cancer patient in need - pick up a shirt at sfac.merchnow.com

What Amy said.

Shirts For A Cure and Beemer are great, please help spread the word. 

This is so lame. Please help.

This is down right terrible. No faith in humanity.
