>Fellow blogger Phila keeps two traditions over his blog, Bouphonia. One is Friday Hope Blogging, in which he lists articles from all over the world, little things that are going right. (The phrase “Why don’t the newspapers write about the good news?” is an old conservative complaint, but I think they mainly wanted to hear good news about Christian white people.) Phila’s Friday Hope Blogging is one of the coolest things on the internet, and I highly recommend a visit there on a regular basis.
The other tradition at Bouphonia is Sunday Music Blogging, and in Phila’s honor I submit here my own favorite-of-the-week. The music is a Hammond-organ jazz rendition of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (and believe me, it’s awesome by itself.) Then somebody put it together with a couple of dance clips from 30’s movies, and the result is just breathtaking. Enjoy!
