More than 75 artists came together in Hollywood yesterday to aid Haitian earthquake recovery efforts by recording a new version of "We Are the World," originally recorded in 1985 to aid African famine relief. Aside from producer Quincy Jones, no one involved in the recording of the original version returned for the new one, though it was recorded in the same studio. Read more about it here.

Oscar nominees reax

I had to go out on a plowing and salting job early this morning, and may have to go out on another this afternoon, so I slept through the Oscar nominations. I know! I've glanced at the full list of nominees, and it would seem that I've only seen one of the nominated films. That is, only one film nominated in any category. I didn't see many movies last year. I'll take a closer look later and see if I have anything to say about any of the nominees.
