¿Volverás? - Juniper Moon

Apparently this song was used in a Verizon commercial.

What happened to this excellent band? Why did they break up? This article suggests that a traffic accident involving their tour van had something to do with it, but that's all I've been able to find.

Patrick the Wombat has turned 29, which is pretty old for a wombat, I guess.

I will admit that before today I had never heard of Patrick and I could not have told you with any accuracy what a wombat looked like.

More pictures of Patrick here. And his Facebook page.

It just makes me feel good to know that Patrick is out there, eating carrots and being huge.

Bonus: A wombat joey.
