Nearly 14 years ago, witz.org was a fan of a bubblepunk group called Birdland. Even saw them play at a club called the Mason Jar in Phoenix, Arizona. Perhaps one of the worst shows ever, the all-blonde British quartet threw a hissy fit and walked off stage after a few songs.
Nevertheless, witz.org still enjoys Birdland’s self-titled debut, one of the better 10 cent cds on Amazon. Birdland did nothing after this cd, and to this day are somewhat of an early nineties-music inside joke amongst music snobs. Nevertheless, some label in the UK decided to release a remastered Birdland anthology called “Paradise” (pictured above) in late 2004.
For our money, Birdland did have one great song. Download Birdland: “Shoot You Down”.

The Cassini spacecraft’s flyby of Saturn’s moon Iapetus has revealed a bizarre geological feature in its images: a bulging ridge at its equator.
Mission scientists have started to release detailed images of the moon’s surface, which is sharply divided into a bright half and a dark half.
The ridge is around 13km (8 miles) high in some places – taller than Mount Everest, the tallest peak on Earth.
