The Wall, for the most part, has always been an indoor show. However, for the past year Waters and his crew have been hashing out all the details and perfecting the concert to transfer over to an outdoor show, focusing specifically on American baseball stadiums.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Roger Waters admits there were some big venues he didn’t get the chance to play last time around. But with The Wall tour returning to America in 2012, Waters has bigger and better plans in mind.

“We want to base the tour around Saturday nights in baseball stadiums. As we speak, I’m at my office working on an outdoor version of the show.”

The best part about it? Fenway Park is hot on his radar!

“We’re going to be projecting over 140 yards. So now it’s going to be 1,500 pixels wide. We’ve done light tests and Fenway Park and Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium just to see what the ambient light is like. And it’s fine. It works. We’ve taken part of the Wall and the projectors into those three places.”

When the 2012 tour ends next summer, Waters would have been on the road for nearly 20 years, and has expressed some concern about his future.

“They’re trying to get me back to Europe next year. But I think I’ll be completely cooked by the end of July next year. I’m not sure I want to go out and do the greatest hits again. Which just sucks. What I love to do is theater in a rock & roll context. I think if I did any more in the future, it might well be smaller.”

Roger Waters playing at Fenway Park would be an amazing performance. A nice change of scenery from the baseball team that normally plays there.

Converse Selling Beastie Boys Sneakers

Pictured for the first time... The boy born with eight arms and legs shows off new body after pioneering surgery

By Daniel Miller

Beaming with delight little Deepak Paswaan shows off his normal body for the first time since undergoing surgery to remove the legs and arms of his underdeveloped twin growing out of his chest. 

For years, Deepak, 7, from Bihar, India, had to suffer taunts and bullying from other children over the appalling disfigurement.

Some taunted him as a 'devil' and a 'freak' while others even viewed him as a god.

Hindu pilgrims used to visit his home to worship him as an incarnation of the god Vishnu, who is often depicted with more than four limbs.

Last year his family for help to get the unwanted limbs removed and give Deepak the chance of a normal life

And Deepak's world was turned upside down when leading surgeons from Bangalore's Fortis Hospital agreed to operate for free.

The pioneering surgery, which was carried out last year, would normally cost around £50,000, a sum his impoverished family could never have dreamed of affording.
Happily the gruelling four-hour operation was a complete success.

Now fully-healed and looking like a healthy, normal seven-year-old, cricket-mad Deepak has been given a new lease of life.

He said: 'I can run faster than my two elder brothers - before I could never keep up. I really like my new body. It's much more fun. I am very happy.'

Footage from the sensational four-hour surgery will be shown on Channel 5 on Thursday night in Eight-Limbed Boy: Extraordinary People, at 9pm.

President Obama on the Passing of Steve Jobs: "He changed the way each of us sees the world."

The White House Blog

Following the loss of visionary Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, President Obama released this statement:
Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.
By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity.  By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun.  And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last.  Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.

The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve’s wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him.

RIP Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Thanks, Steve.
Posting designs like this one makes me paranoid, because I can’t shake the feeling that it’s not original. I enjoyed the process regardless, but please let me know if somebody else beat me to the idea!

Thanks, Steve.
