YOUR 15 MINUTES: Photo Op for Mother Nature

We interupt this program to bring you, what many consider to be, an amazing photograph.

What you're looking at are roads and cleared land caused by loggers and their trucks and machinery in southern Sweden. The pattern they've caused in the destruction has come to illustrate the very thing they have destroyed.
It was an entry in a photo contest about "convergence" on Timothy McSweeney's Internet Tendency, an offshoot of the well-known literary quarterly.

According to McSweeney's: "It was taken by a Swede named Jocke Berglund, and it won him a Wildlife Photographer of the Year award from London's Natural History Museum."

We're not often serious here at Celebrity Hijinx, but when it comes to Mother Nature, we don't fuck around. Xine totally recycles (at least she does when she visits) and I totally buy food from the farmer's market when I can (and not because there's a justin timberlake look-a-like that sells the best cucumbers).

Be good to the planet.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled program.
