In January 1961, on a cold snowy evening in Greenwich Village, a twenty-year-old Bob Dylan, fresh out of Minnesota, began his professional career in earnest playing at a hole-in-the-wall coffee house. A few months later, the British lawyer Peter Benenson and some friends in London launched the campaign that became Amnesty International. It was a coincidence. Yet from the start, Dylan’s artistic work and Amnesty’s political work drew on a common sensibility that ultimately changed the world. For half a century, Amnesty has pressed to secure the fundamental human rights of the persecuted and imprisoned across the globe. Over that same half century, Dylan’s art has explored and expressed the anguish and hope of the modern human condition. Chimes of Freedom is dedicated to people worldwide who are unjustly imprisoned or threatened for the peaceful expression of their beliefs.Good cause, yes? You've also got the option of purchasing single tracks, or the entire album, which is priced at a reasonable $24.99. And that's great. But can we talk a second about Miley and how *good* she actually is at the whole music thing when she tries, and she's not all glitter and black leather and heaving and grinding and tongue-lolling? I mean, this is a chick that we might actually be able to take seriously one day, especially if she keeps churning out music (OK, mostly covers) like this one here. /> See, this is the musical side of Miley that I just love. LOVE. This is Miley's take on Bob Dylan's Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, and frankly, it's f-cking wonderful. I could listen to her version of this song AT LEAST another three times before I got sick of it. The project, as noted in the CD's title, celebrates Amnesty International, and all purchases are directly donated to AI: In January 1961, on a cold snowy evening in Green...

Still not sure what Zantrex-3 is? It's more or less a caffeine pill laced with fancy-sounding herbs. It's kind of like living on a diet of Vivarin and green tea, and probably not much else. Wanna hear the potential side-effects of taking Zantrex-3? Well, shoot, OK!:
Zantrex-3 has several potential cardiovascular side effects. Specifically, this supplement may increase heart rate and cause irregular heartbeats or palpitations. Additionally, an increase in blood pressure may result. If you have a medical history of cardiovascular disease, you should not take this supplement because of the stimulant effects of caffeine. In general, people taking this supplement should reduce or limit their intake of caffeinated beverages to avoid potential side effects.
The caffeine in Zantrex-3 may lead to gastrointestinal problems, such as nausea and vomiting, decreased appetite, diarrhea and general stomach discomfort. Such side effects may subside, but do not ignore these symptoms if they persist; for example, continued diarrhea can lead to dehydration. Seek medical attention if any of these effects persist.
Caffeine can act as a mild diuretic, so Zantrex-3 may increase frequency of urine output. Consequently, individuals with a medical history of kidney disease or renal problems should consult a physician before taking this supplement.
The high amount of caffeine present in this substance may produce effects that involve nervousness with jitters, sleep problems and irritability. Changes in mood may occur as well as increased feelings of anxiety or panic. Individuals with anxiety or mood disorders should check with a physician before taking Zantrex-3.
Well all that just sounds awesome, doesn't it? Irritability, excessive peeing, nausea, vomiting, general stomach discomfort. Honestly, Snooki may as well go ahead and get pregnant, since she's so used to the symptoms, right? You know what's scarier than a Snooki all amped up on glorified caffeine pills? Pregnant Snooki all amped up on glorified caffeine pills.
I shudder at the thought. Please, Zantrex-3, let's maybe find out down the road that excessive use of your product results in the possibility of sterilization, OK? At least in this case? />
Wow. Wowwowwow. So bad. Snooki: so bad. If you didn't watch the video, I'll spare you the gory details and just say that Snooki is so excited, and she just can't hide it, over Zantrex-3's fat-burning pills. Because yes, though she said in the past that her weight loss was all natural and had nothing to do with anything aside from good old-fashioned eating better, cutting out booze, exercising, and drinking tons of water, she's finally come clean and fulfilled her contract with endorsed Zantrex-3 with open arms.
Still not sure what Zantrex-3 is...
