More A-Grade American PR work.

Canadian schoolchildren have been banned from a poster contest in the United States because of Canada's shaky support of the American position on Iraq.

"It's subject to change if your leaders stop hedging. Germany's in the same boat," George Knox, director of the centre, told the Winnipeg Free Press. "This is a time in history when we need to be together."

And then they wonder why so many people think that they're idiots?


The first notes in the longest and slowest piece of music in history, designed to go on for 639 years, are being played on a German church organ on Wednesday.

The three notes, which will last for a year-and-a-half, are just the start of the piece, called As Slow As Possible.

Composed by late avant-garde composer John Cage, the performance has already been going for 17 months - although all that has been heard so far is the sound of the organ's bellows being inflated.

Which is pretty cool if you ask me, unfortunately nobody ever does.
