Edge plays acoustically - Bono calls it a "buskar" version. U2 debuts a new song, Every Breaking Wave, and Bono talks the band through the chords in the middle. It was the last song dropped from 'No Line on the Horizon' and is rumored to be on U2's next album, Songs of AscentPride is played for the first time in 2010. Bono sings an unknown song/snippet before MLK. He sings several snippets that refer to the rainy weather in Helsinki.

Lions eating giraffes

I think Giraffes rule. They are the most beautiful animals, there size and temperament make them vital part of the jungle's landscape:


Still, giraffes are a part of the food chain. And what's at the top of that chain? Lions. Hungry Lions. Lions who like to eat giraffes. Check out these pictures of lions feeding below and you'll see what I mean. It's carnage.

First up is the prey being stalked. Note the nosy oryx neighbours in the foreground...and background... hey wait are they helping the lioness out? I guess when its either you or the giraffe..


That was in Nambia. Lions are the giraffe's main predators, and giraffes are particularly vulnerable to attack when lying down, drinking or feeding from the ground. Unlike females, male giraffes tend to live alone, which also makes them more open to predation. What's the lesson here? Don't wear a giraffe suit at your local watering hole. Or this might happen:


Above and below images are from Kruger National Park in South Africa.


Sometimes the pride will have a traditional Sunday roast where even the baby cubs get in on the feasting:




And here's a picture of a takedown of a giraffe in a car park. I have no idea of the context....



Want more of nature at its finest? Here's some lucky lions feeding on some zebra and other critters

Weekend that was: Hurricane Dimitri

Weekend that was: Hurricane Dimitri

  • Friday - Learnt the hard way that Tuatara Ardennes beer is 6.5 per cent
  • Saturday - Had guests and wee Dimitiri for a pot luck dinner. The magic of kid's toys....
  • Sunday - Saw Inception and learnt some blues licks like Sunshine of Your Love, thanks Steve!

Sharks: Fearless man eaters or misunderstood monsters?

Is there something stuck in my tooth?

Sharks! You love, I love em and surfers and seals hate them. Tiger sharks, hammer heads and great whites - all known as kings of the ocean. Fearless man eaters or misunderstood monsters? Here's a few pictures of sharks eating and munching their way few the ocean's bounty - as to their true nature, I'll let you decide.....


Here's a Great White Shark greedily trying to shove ALL the fish down his gullet. Do fish have gullets? I have no idea. Perhaps you could ask this crocodile if he noticed while he was munching on a shark..


The above shark was the man eater that was filmed in the extremely popular documentary Jaws which was directed by the well known animal rights activist, Steven Speilberg. Jaws famously ate Spielberg's boat, which cause his camera operator to quip the now legendary line, "we're gonna need a bigger boat!"

Sadly, a shark attack victim - surfers are often mistaken for seals and attacked.
Here's some sharks doing what they do best: eating baby seals. And who would blame them? Baby seals are delicious!! I eat one everyday!



And if you ever go to a beach wearing a bikini and have pretty damn fine rack you better watch out for the Tiger Shark. These sharks are true predators, taking any chance they can get to feed on their prey....
