In other awesome performance news, the Individual World Poetry Slam 2009 looms ever nearer on the horizon. We’d insert some sweet flow here, but it’s a little too early in the a.m. to be embarrassing ourselves. [InBerkeley [2]]

Something completely unrelated to music: UC Berkeley’s Phoebe A. Hearst Museum wants to return a collection of Japanese remains from World War II to their country of origin. Only problem is, the bones might not be Japanese. Minor detail, right? [SFGate [3]]

You know that fire? The one blazing away just a jaunt and a half to the south? Turns out Mt. Wilson, home to an observatory where UC Berkeley and other schools are invested in “multimillion-dollar astronomy projects,” is in significant danger of going up in flames. Not that this is more important than people’s lives, or anything. Our narcissism [4] (read: douchebaggery) isn’t quite that advanced. [LA Times [5]]
