Hey, a Tom Curtis sighting!  Welcome, Tom! (thanks for the vid)


Maybe it's more a reflection on my personality, but I think a blog post on that video would be in order...

...it would appeal to the youth (but by the time they rise to power it will be too late for them).

Nevermind.

Along with some background information ...

I agree that the video should be promoted.  I have already shown it to my grade 10 daughter, who loved it.  She will be showing it to her class mates who are doing a project on global warming in drama.

 

One thought that occured is that it may be useful to the Chasers for their peice on Monckton.  (I'm not a Chasers fan, so I don't know how well it would work for them.)

Now this is what I call White Honkies doing Rap!!

I hate Rap. But this makes me feel young again.

Chaser vs Hungry Beast? I Like it!

How does this sound. At the next election Libs, Nationals, Labour - not a seat. Hungry Beast in Power, Chaser in Opposition. Greens on the Cross-Benches. Let the party roll.

OK, sometimes I'll type 'LOL' when I actually only smiled or chuckled. Holy crap, this actually made me laugh out loud.  "Bloody brilliant!!" as my dad used to say.

This needs to go viral...pity about the swears (I do not care in this context, but some might), but it is time we got in people's faces with this Yeah, Riccardo that line about gravity really cracked me up.

We listened to it just before bed last night, and my wife and I kept on signing the song (without waking the little ones of course), man is it ever a catchy tune, and that is saying a LOT b/c I normally hate rap.

Where is Tom Curtis, can someone give me a time stamp?

PS:  This is going out on my email list.

I believe TC is in Australia.

But I've been wrong before.

btw I vote for Daniel to write a post featuring the video.  Climate Progress did today, and I think the more blogs post it, the better.

I can if Tom Curtis doesn't want to (his baby).

Or I can do it with him (doesn't matter to me).

Albatross, like our generous host, I come from Brisbane, Australia.

 

Daniel, if you want to blog the video, go ahead.

Hi Tom,

I envy you living in Brisbane...I miss the ocean.  

I think that there has been some confusion.  I interpreted one of Daniel's posts to mean that you were featured in the video.

Sorry, Albie, for the confusion.  More properly, I meant seeing Tom posting here in the Forum.

I plan on putting a blog post together on the video tomorrow.  If there's anything pertinent that someone feels I should cover, please post it here in the interim.  Thanks!

Dan,  I'd recommend reading Joe Romms' post and the posted comments.  Seems they hit the nail on the head...vid already has 12,000 views :)  Gotta watch my potty mouth around the girls, but I keep singing those lines about gravity our loud.  OK, house cleaning awaits!

Albatross, I'm definitely not featured in any music video.  A featured role was considered in a video for broadcast to the Taliban, but the Red Cross intervened so no violations of the Geneva Convention ensued.

 

Also, I'm not a climate scientist.

Anthony has reacted - http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/05/11/what-climate-science-has-come-to-a-rap-music-video-with-expletives/ 

Maybe he doesn't get what the Chaser is.
