Spider eats bird

THESE amazing images of a mammoth spider devouring a bird were taken in the backyard of an Atherton property, west of Cairns.

And the images, which are being cirulated via email worldwide, are real, according to wildlife experts.























The photos, believed to have been taken earlier this week, show the spider clenching its legs around a lifeless bird trapped in a web.

Joel Shakespeare, the head spider keeper at NSW's Australian Reptile Park, told ninemsn that the spider was a Golden Orb Weaver.

See all the photos of the spider eating the bird at this link:

In Ear Parkby Department of Eagles



















Review by Ian Gittins

Department of Eagles' debut album, 2003's whimsical-yet-sharp The Cold Nose, was a quiet pleasure scarcely noticed outside of a handful of indie-electronica cognoscenti. Five years on, this eclectic follow-up deserves a wider audience.

The band is essentially a side-project of Grizzly Bear singer-songwriter Daniel Rossen, who developed its dreamy songs with cohort Fred Nicolaus. Ear Park was a nickname the pair gave to a park they used to visit in Los Angeles, and the album's mood is a pensive, sepia-tinged nostalgia, suffused with a weary melancholy and shot through with intimations of mortality.

This is a late-night record, spectral yet immediate, possessed of a sparse, urgent grace. Folktronica essays such as "No One Does It" and "Around the Bay" suggest Grandaddy or Band of Horses if their good ole' boy bonhomie were replaced by an alien shimmer. The gently knowing "Teenagers," a sleek-yet-vulnerable pop song, unfolds at some blessed point halfway between Elliott Smith's doomed confessionals and Beck's post-modern trickery, while Nicolaus and Rossen's multi-tracked, keening vocals ache with insatiable, unspecified yearning throughout. Low profile or no, In Ear Park is a triumph.

The album is available at E Music. Here is the Link

Ryan Auffenberg


Atmosphere can be defined as:
A dominant intellectual or emotional environment or attitude.
There are certain albums that when you listen to them they create a certain atmosphere. Sometimes an album is perfect for a certain atmosphere. The other night I was looking for the perfect album to listen to late at night. I did not want something that would put me to sleep but something that would just feel perfect late at night. I came across the album, Marigolds by Ryan Auffenberg. It is a folk/rock album that is perfect for those times when you want to relax and listen to some really good music. The lyrical content helps create the atmosphere. Late at night listening to the track, Dizzy Spells is an amazing experience. The piano with the violin creates a haunting sound.
The lyrics are beautiful:
"Dizzy Spells"
Hold your breath
The water's cold at first
Most don't swim
Just drink to quench their thirst
Life and love and choosing what they're worth
Streams narrow and rip tides toss and turn
Treading out to brave the swells
If you live your life for dizzy spells
Then I can't be the first to tell you
You might drown
When no one knows you
It can feel like you're cursed
By saying so
That spell you might reverse
But when they all love you
And nothing ever hurts
You'll never be
The one that they loved first
Treading out to brave the swells
If you live your life for dizzy spells
Then I can't be the first to tell you
You might drown
Though they're just passers by
Their daggers hurt
But until they've jumped in too
What are they worth
Treading out to brave the swells
If you live your life for dizzy spells
Then I can't be the first to tell you
You might drown
But don't break down
This is a great album and I highly recommend it.
