The Latest

Each man must please himself, and nature has placed her approbation on this by supplying the greatest pleasure men ever know as a reward for doing good work. I hate this fast-growing tendency to chain men to machines in big factories and deprive them of all joy in their efforts — the plan will lead to cheap men and cheap products. I set my face against it and plead for the dignity and health of the open air, and the olden time.

Listen Closely As This California Forest Falls Eerily Quiet Over 10 Years

"Does the sound of the forest change over time?

Bernie Krause knows.

The expert bio-acoustician has spent decades recording natural sounds all over the world, including one particular section of forest between Napa and Sonoma valleys.

Over a ten year stretch, from 2004 to 2014, he’s noticed a major change in the biophony of the section of forest where he records.

Listen in to hear the startling changes.”

If you know anything about the adorable child actor turned fundamentalist lunatic, you likely realize that his reasons for wanting you to celebrate Halloween have nothing to do with the actual holiday and everything to do with promoting revisionist history, fundy- style.
