White Limo - Foo Fighters. I have no idea what this song is about, and frankly I'm not sure I really care. Mr. Grohl seems to be quite upset about something or other, and is expressing this through the medium of screaming. I like the song, and the video has Lemmy in it.

I've been viewing the series "How the Universe Works" from the Discovery Channel, a basic primer in cosmology and astrophysics. Then I stumbled across this gem on YouTube:

Do view it full-screen to avoid distraction, please. It's a perfect example of human consciousness and artistry as an intermediary amidst the vivacious freedom of life and the evolving eternity of the cosmos. This is multi-scalar truth incarnate. It's all about the many kinds and levels of love. Cheers.
In case you didn't realize it, I DO have a sense of humor. How about you?

Not quite a double post, but meh...

Today has been the turn of Demis Roussos to be in favour. One of his most famous songs from 1973. Great voice, great song. And another for you.

Still listening to 'Smother' by.. 'The Wild Beasts' (they're anything but wild in my opinion).

Amazing lyrics.

I try not to spend too much time listening to A Perfect Circle, because if not that's about all I'll listen to.

That's beautiful. I've never heard it acoustic before. Do you also listen to Puscifer and Tool? I'm a bit of a Tool freak, myself. Anything James Maynard Keenan touches turns to clouds in sunlight (ethereal and beautiful).

Been listening to the latest Justice album, "Audio, Video, Disco." It's distinctly different from the dark, industrial-tinged house music of the first album. It sounds like a cross between 70's prog rock and 16-bit RPG video game music. The opening to the first track sounds like it would have fit perfectly as the beginning to a 20-minute, multi-part Rush concept song.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré
