Astrid Young and brother Neil
Farm Aid - Date ?
Astrid Young, Neil Young's sister, is working on a new album and is looking for a little love & support. We can get down with that concept.
From a quite unique project called Sell a Band, here's Astrid's pitch:
My album, iNtegratron, has been in the works for a couple of years.
During that time i have been writing, collaborating and recording with some of my dearest and most favorite artists/writers/musicians/producers/engineers/studios all over the world. most of the project has been funded by me out of my own pocket - however, i have one major handicap i am afflicted with, which prevents me from finishing this myself - i have a serious hearing impairment, and on this project in particular i need to hand over the mixing and mastering reins to others.
i have assembled an awesome team of mixers and editors, the likes of Ed Stasium (The Ramones, Smithereens, Tea Party, etc.), Bill Kennedy (Nine Inch Nails, Econoline Crush), Rob Sanzo (VoiVod, Treble Charger), John X (U2, The Rolling Stones) to do my mixing for me. along with the wonderful cast of musicians who played with me on this project, these mixers will be the foundation of my sound: these are people i have worked with extensively in the past, who know me and my sound, who share my vision, and for whom i have the utmost respect and reverence! Of course, they need to be paid, so this is what i am raising funds for.
So, if you can help out Astrid with her recording project, we're sure she'd appreciate it. And her brother would probably too. ;)

Video highlights of Neil Young Honored As MusiCares Person Of The Year
Brilliant Wilco cover of the Neil Young penned Buffalo Springfield "wall of sound" epic Broken Arrow. Recorded on February 23, 2010 at Hamilton Place, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This is a more complete version.
"I like politics and I'm into cars too. I tinker on no less than three air cooled VW sedans. I have a '65, '68 and my nephew and I are putting together a Baja Bug - '67 on a '64 chassis. I crank 40 years of Neil in the old garage! Fork In The Road is a double CD / DVD. We put it in the DVD player in the shop and enjoy high resolution sound without getting greasy fingerprints on vinyl records."
From NPR: 2 Huge Icebergs Let Loose Off Antarctica's Coast - A massive iceberg struck Antarctica, dislodging another giant block of ice from a glacier, Australian and French scientists said Friday. Glaciologist Neil Young said the long iceberg is the size of Luxembourg that collided with the floating Mertz Glacier and shaved off a new iceberg. The new iceberg is 98 miles long and 24 miles wide holding the equivalent of a 5th of the worlds annual water usage.
IPCC errors are "trivial mistakes".
