They call it Dark Earth Hour.
No, it's not a really cool, really short Death Metal festival.
The Green Party O' Michigan (sounds Irish) is asking folks to unplug for one hour, from 9-10 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month.
How horrific. Rock 'N' Roll requires electricity.
Seriously, (still) I thought the first-annual Earth Hour last year was a crock. One hour without power. Ooooh. What a sacrifice!
What we need to do is concentrate, every day, on promoting energy efficiency and new technology and new power sources, like wind and solar (even nuclear, not a misprint) to meet our energy needs.
In the meantime, here's a recipe for a solar amplifier. Better than going acoustic, unless you're talking about the fine volumes of VH1's Metal Mania Stripped. Definitely worth checking out.
