Just removed this from my MySpace's "About me"

...And replaced it with "I don't care about MySpace anymore. My heart belongs to Facebook."

On the 130th day (131st in leap years) of the year, I share the same birth date as Sid Vicious, Bono, Fred Astaire, Young MC, Linda Evangelista, Pac Man, Homer Simpson, and Donovan.

This date is also Astronomy Day in the US.

Incidentally, my name is derived from the Italian feminine and masculine form of Caelestis, which is from a Late Latin name which meant "of the sky, heavenly." For a long time, the name Celeste has been more bestowed on boys than on girls, probably taken as a variant of Célestin. The trend was reversed first in England at the beginning of the 18th century then throughout Europe. Saint Celeste is a man, the second archbishop of Metz in the 4th century.

Moreover, the 2nd definition of my name is a musical instrument with a keyboard and metal plates struck by hammers that produce bell-like tones. In addition, one of my middle names means market in spanish while my last name is of a small drum formerly used to accompany oneself on a pipe or fife. Curiously, I work in music marketing and publicity.

Just to bring it full-circle: Donovan, with whom I share a birth date, has a daughter named Astrella Celeste. He wrote and released the only song sung in English (that I know of) named Celeste, though he doesn't say the name anywhere in the song. The Telescopes also have a song named Celeste, and although I personally find it musically superior to Donovan's version, I didn't mention it before because it's an instrumental.

Pearl Jam's AT&T-"Censored" Segment

From Listening Post dot com:

Video: Pearl Jam's AT&T-"Censored" Segment
By Eliot Van Buskirk EmailAugust 09, 2007 | 3:16:14 PMCategories: AT&T

The controversy surrounding AT&T's alleged censorship of a Pearl Jam Lollapalooza show that AT&T webcast as part of its Blue Room series continues, despite AT&T's Statement that Eddie Vedder's anti-Bush lyrics were excised from the show footage by a third-party webcasting service provider.

SavetheInternet agrees with Pearl Jam that the situation could indicate how AT&T might act if net neutrality laws are not passed, and posted the footage on YouTube.
