Astonishing cover of Tool's "46 and 2" by schoolkids, some of whom seem extremely young. The drummer looks about 12, and is utterly amazing.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Yes, OK, that's pretty damn good. Excuse me while I go chop up the drum kit and the bass. Won't be needing them any more...

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

It's entirely possible. I'm old, and I forget stuff.

Yes, I've been watching that one over and over as well. No idea where I saw it first, but it could easily have been your FB account.

Postmodern Jukebox are incredible. Thanks for calling my attention to that, I had missed it when Roy put it up.

My earworm yesterday was Tarkus. Went on for hours. I haven't thought about that album for decades. (The link is a cover by Rachel Flowers. Holy shit.)

Yes, it's quite old but I watched it half an hour ago and can't get the bloody thing out of my head. On the bright side it has made me listen to a lot of the Jam, Down in the Tube Station at Midnight is a classic.
