Thanks to Paul for providing the link to this. This is an incredible action by Sarah McLachlan and her supporters. Watch the video, as it contains figures for what it would have cost to do the video and what impact that money is making on the communities in the world that need the funding.
I found this very cool music video that integrates exercise with music. The in-line skating routine is amazing!

I was stumbling around MySpace this morning and found this musician, Michael Tillman. He is a Dallas-based musician and plays guitar, and according to his site, “His cross-genre repertoire includes standard classical pieces, flamenco and jazz influenced composition and songs from various countries of South America and Europe.” If you visit his MySpace page you can listen to some of his music. Things like this need to be shared 🙂
I’m listening to PSB’s new song, “I’m with Stupid” from their new album, Fundamental. It’s the usual PSB style and sound, but the words are kind of funny, especially when you read (listen to) them knowing that it’s a song “dedicated” to English Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W. Bush. You can listen to the song here (you’ll need to go the minute 19 for the song).
One part of the song goes,
Before we ever met
I thought like everybody did
you were just a moron
a billion-dollar kid
You flew up all the way
like a hawk chasing a dove
I never thought that I would be
a sacrifice in love
Hmmm… I’m not sure 🙂
