You should know HAIM by now. And if you don’t, you’re about to fall in love. They are three of the most badass chicks making music today, and they just happen to be sisters. HAIM began developing a huge following in 2012, and 2013 is shaping up to be an even bigger year for the band. They have just released their most recent single “Falling,” and with it you can rest assured that their forthcoming EP is going to be awesome.
Check out “Falling” below.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was a guest on the Chris Wallace’s FOX show were he stated “that more research on video games is not needed because the link to violent behavior is obvious, Pelosi pushed back: “the evidence… says that in Japan, for example,… they have the most violent games than the rest and the lowest mortality from guns.”
Pelosi may be referring to an oft-cited study by Max Fisher of the Washington Post which compared per capita video game spending to gun murders in 10 different countries. Japan did indeed have a very low rate of gun deaths, but the really striking examples were South Korea and the Netherlands, where video game spending far outpaced the other countries yet gun murders remained well under 0.5 per 100,000 people. By comparison, U.S. video game spending was below the average, but our gun murders were over 3 per 100,000, statistical light years from any other country in the study.
It is nice to see someone look at all the evidence before just blasting media without looking into everything.

HBO’s Game of Thrones: Season 3 will debut the last of March. One of the better adult fantasy stories that I have seen. Definitely not kid friendly, but even if you have not read the books, but love the fantasy genre, you will more than likely love this series. Thanks to ICv2 for the update and trailer through YouTube:
