Lazy Sunday Listening

I’d argue that Music Videos mirrored the Romantic Period’s idea of “Program Music”. Composers would indicate a purely instrumental work represented some sort of story –  a trip to see the torment of Hell, or perhaps something more mundane  in the travels of a sponsor.

Anyway, I’m starting a small series in “Interesting Music Videos” this week with Jeremy. It’s one of many highly controversial videos, and one of a few that adds more than a little depth to the song – at least, letting you know what a seemingly random string of words is about.

Feeling Kinda Metal Today…

Fate’s Interesting News Bits v.11

Death Valley Rocks - I remember talking about this in Science class… Now, no more fun with endless hours of speculation…

Movies Suck - “Worst Summer Since 1997″ of movie sales. Why? Rehashed garbage. Guardians of the Galaxy / Lego, did make up some ground though.

That “Other” Shooting - No real coverage for this guy in the media, probably because of where it happened. But… there’s actual evidence and he wasn’t fresh off robbing a store. Can we pick our cases for outrage a bit better?

Second Cold War - EU v. Russia, aided by a lukewarm foreign policy in the States. I really hope I don’t end up seeing World War III.

8TB Hard drive - That’s a lotta movies… Or about 4 1/2 days of high-def pr0n…
