Read it in the Sunday papers …

A South Korean inventor who was fed up with drinking alone has created a robot companion that can knock back shots with him all night long. Eunchan Park began developing Robot Drinky after he spent Christmas 2012 drinking rice wine by himself. “I had no girlfriend at that time,” he said. “Drinking alone was definitely terrible.” Drinky is designed to combat that sense of solitude: It can clink glasses in a toast and nods its head as its inebriated human buddy rants away. Drinky, though, never gets drunk – the booze flows straight from its mouth down a tube and into a mason jar.

As a Neil Young fanatic I just have to say I am appalled that he chose to cover this vile song. To further irritate his rendition is absolutely abysmal!

An Israeli man requested a restraining order against God, saying that he’s fed up with the Almighty interfering in his life. David Shoshan told a court in Haifa that God “started to treat me harshly and not nicely” three years ago, and calls to the police had not put an end to the harassment. Judge Ahsan Canaan denied the request for a restraining order, saying Shoshan needed the kind of help the court could not provide. God did not present himself at the hearing.

R.E.M. with Adam Clayton & Larry Mullen Jr.:

A damn shame. This one could have been a contender. But you just can’t slip the original band’s bass player and drummer into the mix and call it your own. Well … at least not on CMI you can’t!!! (Yeah, we’re a bunch of badasses around here, deal with it!)

Johnny Cash:

I know, technically, this is a cover and should be down below battling among other contenders. The problem is this cover is perfect. The song absolutely cannot be performed any better. As such, I feel to include it in the competition would be disrespectful to the memory of the Man in Black, as well as unfair to the poor bastards below who so desperately covet the industry accolades that come with a CMI victory.
