A few things

1. Marvin Gaye, a capella, to show you that you live in a world of beauty.

2. Wow!

3. This morning as Charlie (age 7) was getting ready for a routine day at school he said, out of the blue, "You know, I think it's true. The universe really does have a balance of dark and light." There's cute, there's precocious, and then there's unnerving.

4. The other day I was picking the kids up from school and saw a minivan parked out front with two bumper stickers. "McCain" and "Work Harder, Millions on welfare are counting on you!" The driver was inside sleeping at 3:30 pm on a Monday. He must have weighed 320 pounds.

5. If you don't regularly spend time at cakewrecks.blogspot.com and fivethirtyeight.com, well, I just don't know what to say to you.

Marvin Gaye. Just, wow.

Pretty amazing. The comments indicate that what we're hearing is actually the isolated vocal track from the single, and it's synched on to the visual of a performance that actually had full instrumentals. But I feel like this only makes it more haunting and cool.
