Auschwitz Memorial Shuts Down Congressman Who Used The Gas Chamber To Film An Ad For The U.S. Military

You know those Sarah McLachlan commercials that guilt you into donating money by showing depressing pictures of dogs?

Well, Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins is using a similar formula to promote the U.S. military industrial complex — with the world’s most infamous death camp as an emotional backdrop.

Higgins got skewered by the Auschwitz Memorial on Monday for shooting a sobering video inside the building’s gas chamber and using the tragedy as a platform for the war on Islamic terrorism.

The congressman turned his Auschwitz visit into an ad for giving the military more money to, as he put it in a Fourth of July Facebook post, “hunt [radical Islamic suspects] down. Hunt them, identify them, and kill them. Kill them all. For the sake of all that is good and righteous. Kill them all.”

Um… which side is he supposed to represent in this Auschwitz equation again?

Higgins was understandably moved by his visit to the death camp site, and documented the harrowing setting as he spoke into his phone: (more…)

Not only is Sarah’s Monsters super emotional, but the animated short to go along with it is just too cute for words.

Sarah herself had nothing but positive things to say about her choice to go with a more child-like styling, saying:

“For my single Monsters I chose to go with an animated video because the kids really love this song and I wanted to keep it in that whimsical childlike world so animation seemed like the best approach”

We couldn’t agree more!

Sarah’s new album is available now, and you can get your very own copy HERE!

We love a charitable cause, especially when it brings together such a cool group of people, including Sarah McLachlan, St. Vincent, Jason Mraz, Whoopi Goldberg, and Rosie O’Donnell.

Sarah McLachlan Talks About Her Divorce

Sarah McLachlan Talks About Her Divorce

Sarah McLachlan Divorce Talk

Sarah McLachlan‘s okay now, but when she got divorced back in 2008 it was a whole different, devastating deal.

Now that she’s able to see it in a different light, she’s been able to be really unfiltered about it too:

“Yeah, the marriage part didn’t quite work out. Apparently that’s a bit of an epidemic, so I just make light of it. Coming to terms with the fact that my marriage was a failure was devastating and very difficult. I blamed myself for a lot of things. It took me a very long time to get over it.

“I have amazing friends, great family and two kids, so I just got out of bed everyday and kept moving forward. I’m not one to sit and wallow — I would rather figure out a way around so I can move past it and be at peace with things. I don’t like bad feelings gnawing away at me.

“So I’ve certainly done a lot of growing up in the past couple of years, recognizing bad traits in myself and others.”

Well, this is definitely proof that time really does make a difference in how a person gets through sadness. It’s wonderful to see that she’s moved past that dark period of her life and has been able to keep everything together.

Splits can be painful, but never painful enough to give up hope! Time is powerful!

R.I.P. Lilith Fair

R.I.P. Lilith Fair

sarah-mclachlan-says-lilith-fair-is-over

Sad! But we suppose it had its time!

Sarah McLachlan announced today that after attempting to revive Lilith Fair last year to bad ticket sales, she will no longer be running the female-fronted music festival!

She explains:

“Bringing the same thing back last year really didn’t make any sense, in retrospect, without due diligence being done on how women have changed. In 12 years, women have changed a lot. Their expectations have changed, the way they view the world has changed, and that was not taken into consideration, which I blame myself for.”

Inneresting points!

However, fear not, female music lady fans, she DOES hope to update the venue sometime in the future by “carrying forth the ideas from Lilith and maybe doing something new and different.”

Nice! We DO like the sound of that, and are looking forward to how this re-imagining will manifest itself!

Sounds cool!

Sarah McLachlan won’t stop touring after Lilith Fair as she’s announced a brand new tour for November called “Sarah and Friends.”

The first set of the show will feature Sarah sitting in on songs with her guest performers and the second set will have Sarah singing her greatest hits and new songs from her latest album Laws of Illusion.

There will also be an interactive element to the tour with the audience getting the opportunity to submit questions when they arrive and Sarah will choose randomly which ones to answer throughout the show!

Love it!

Are You Bored, Sarah McLachlan?

Are You Bored, Sarah McLachlan?

sarahwenn2937176.jpg

Or did the less than impressive turnout at Lilith Fair this summer force you to look into new avenues of expression?

If that’s the case, we think you’ve made a serious wrong turn!

Sources are reporting that Sarah McLachlan will be a guest-star on a crossover event between The CW shows Life Unexpected and One More Season, Really? Tree Hill.

Sarah will be playing herself and performing her new single, Forgiveness, while some of the characters of the two shows will interact in a way that makes sense.

We’ll pass. OTH was so ten years ago and we can’t help but sit through this Life Unexpected show half hoping that Joey Potter is going to roll up in a black Jeep Wrangler with Max Evans to break up Liz and Jack.

Or, you know, something like that.

Will U be tuning in for Sarah’s BIG guest spot?

Lilith is going Down Under!

The 2010 Lilith Fair will continue in Australia this October as a Taste of Lilith with shows in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Sarah McLachlan, Dixie Chicks spin-off the Court Yard Hounds and Kate Miller-Heidke and the Verses will perform.

Ticket prices are still high though at $149 and $222 in Australia.

Pretty steep, Sarah! Especially considering that’s why many people didn’t show up to the concerts in the US!
