Comedian turned political activist says he has ‘gone as far as we can’ with his YouTube show and wants to spend some time ‘learning’.

Russell Brand says he is stopping his YouTube show The Trews and taking a break from Facebook and Twitter to spend some time “learning”.

“I think we’ve gone as far as we can with the Trews for now,” he said in in a video titled “Final Episode Of The Trews – Goodbye, Good Luck”.

“I’m not going to be doing the Trews, I’m not going to be on Twitter, or Facebook, I’m going to be learning because I know real change is coming and I want to be part of that, said Brand in a piece to camera.

The Trews saw Brand regularly weigh in on current affairs, with some posts attracting millions of views. His interview with Ed Miliband during the election attracted more than 1.3m views and widespread media coverage, though many questioned whether the move eventually helped or undermined the Labour leader’s campaign.

Brand said his decision to stop the show was driven in part by what he sees as the cyclical nature of news reporting and the response he got from the media to the show.

“Media behaves in a very sort of predicable and formulaic manner,” he said. “If you speak out about that process you become the recipient the target of such incredible condemnation it’s in a way overwhelming and in others completely understandable.”

However, Brand’s hiatus may also have something to do with his planned “Trews World Tour” which takes in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand this autumn.

And anyone hoping Brand wil take a lengthy break on social media may be disappointed as he signed off the video post saying that he would be “back soon”.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Eton Radio
The Must Have Emergency Tool!

Etón FR160B Microlink Self-Powered (Hand Crank Power) AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger (Black)
by Eton

AM (520-1710 KHz) & FM (87-108MHz) NOAA weatherband USB cell phone charger (USB cable not included) 3.5 mm headphone Accessories: owner"s manual, warranty card

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

Capitalism: A Love StoryCapitalism: A Love Story. On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
