videos: bizarre anti gay marriage video, TED music talk, The Newsroom opening credits

– I saw this bizarre anti gay marriage video, and was like: …wait, what? The organization that created it looks real and not a satire, which was my first thought.

To be fair, there’s approximately one reasonable argument made in the middle: a wedding photographer in New Mexico was fined for refusing to photograph a same-sex wedding in 2006 (even though gay marriage wasn’t and isn’t legal in New Mexico!), and that does bother me some. But the first 1:20 of the video is: super super crazy.

(having watched The Newsroom, I realize that this is the best form of the argument against same-sex marriage, but it is funny and I ain’t no journalist…)

– Speaking of The Newsroom, do yourself a favor and watch the opening credits a few hundred times in a row, like I’m doing. Now I want to play this music when I walk into the office every morning to get me going 🙂

– Another good (but longer) video: TED talk by Benjamin Zander about (classical) music and passion.

  1. I’m a huge fan of Thomas Newman. I’ve got hefty sections of the Finding Nemo and Wall-E soundtracks on my “stuff” playlist. 🙂
