Since I have been posting about music, I ought to mention some songs and videos by friends of mine.
Check out Paul Brill's awesome song Don't Tell Them. I sorta like his Paris Is On song as well. Paul and I studied in Africa together in 1988.
Ted Hoagland went to high school with me (1982-1986), and his band is called The Hoagland Conspiracy. You can hear four of his songs from his band's Myspace music page. The song "Home Alive" is one of my favorites by him.
Oh here, I'll try embedding a video and see if this works:
