I really enjoyed seeing Colin Hay perform live in London last Friday night. You’d have to be a certain age to remember Men At Work but whether you know his music or not, he’s a captivating performer - a guitar virtuoso, his voice sounds great, and he’s just an incredibly funny and self-deprecating story teller.
After 20 years in the Marine Corps, including tours of duty in Afghanistan, Mac returned home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and a deep seated hatred toward all Muslims. That’s all he knew, all he’d ever been taught.
The best video I saw this week was this incredible fingerstyle guitar rendition of Chicago’s classic hit from 1970 “25 or 6 to 4”.
This is the best thing I watched this week. It looks like a film about technology, but it’s actually a story about people, our egos and frailty, and how we collectively navigate this brave new world.
This short video is not something you watch as much as something you experience. It’s a journey into a world none of us wants to visit, but one that’s become part of our collective reality.
I’ve been following this YouTube channel for a few years and it never ceases to amaze me.
