    Default I was going to post a long and very angry rant.....

    ...but I was too overwhelmed, and when this happens, I have to listen to something like this. Best enjoyed with good quality headphones.

    "Reason and facts are sacrificed to opinion and myth. Demonstrable falsehoods are circulated and recycled as fact. Narrow minded opinion refuses to be subjected to thought and analysis. Too many now subject events to a prefabricated set of interpretations, usually provided by a biased media source. The myth is more comfortable than the often difficult search for truth."

    You know the comma comes after the "merry", don't you?
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    I'm not sure why but it instantly reminded me of Tero Saarinen's work - Borrowed Light.
    I saw it years ago at the Wellington Arts Festival - it was just amazing.



    Now that i've recapped, i can see why i have been reminded.

    While I like Pentatonix, I prefer Annie Lennox' slower paced version.
