Incredibly bold, challenging, uneven, cool and one hundred percent interesting – this is Neil Young’s newest work, Le Noise. By now, you may have heard a little something about how different it is, how spare. Well, it is an experimental album if ever there was one. There is no band per-se, so we’re talking just Neil…

As you take a minute to order a drink in between acts you can see the pit is filled to capacity and the crowd’s excitement is unbearable. The anticipation of the South African born Los Angeles adopted band is looming until the roar of “No Jesus Christ” appeases the masses. Instantly, rock fans start jumping and thrashing about in the pit.


Are you trying to make sense of the torn-asunder puzzle of the 21st century world? Are you looking for a way to represent the confusion, fear, and moral uncertainty of an America under the War on Terrorism? The reality is, there is no way to represent such complexity in its totality. Occasionally, it seems the best course is an attempt at manifesting, or reflecting, the world in which we live. It can be more satisfying and comforting; it can be more intellectually honest and cathartic. Personally, and currently, I have been going back to Modernism. I have been going back to T.S. Eliot.


Another 9/11 is upon us and here we are again, forced to reflect on what it meant to us and what it continues to mean for the future of this country. When someone mentions 9/11, it always means 9/11/01, a day cemented in time; a day that has lost all meaning outside of the events that occurred nine years ago and will probably always remain that way. We were a band of brothers on that day – I had never seen such unity as was displayed by the New Yorkers, and the rest of America followed suit. It is a day to remember, a day to reflect, a day to honor those fallen and those that became heroes on that Tuesday morning.


All week, we’ve been focusing on the scourge that is human trafficking. We’ve told you what it is and talked to people who are out there trying to change the world by eradicating modern day slavery. But as Paul mentioned in the conversation with Faceless International, if all we’ve done is enlighten you then we’ve failed. For a today’s installment of The Six, we’re going to tell you where to go from here.


Human Trafficking is a crime against humanity. It involves an act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them. It is a form of present day slavery and it affects more than 27 million people around the world. It’s hard to see a staggering number like that and fathom how many people that really is, so if you take the population of the entire state of Texas and then add the population of the entire state of Nevada, you would have about 27 million people.


Though down to the very last dates on the North American leg of the 21st Century Breakdown World Tour (and well over a year after the release of their last album), Green Day undoubtedly performed at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater with no less energy and gusto than they could have possibly exerted when the tour
