no 1: lazy

there's a fantastic single come out in the uk called lazy by Xpress2 featuring david byrne of talking heads fame. he is at his best on this vocal delivery. but with the single you get a quicktime video that is absolutely wonderful. the song is a powerful satire on consumption taken to its passive extreme. it is both poignant and very funny. how i'll use it i don't know but i'm sure i will. for me one of the most important challenges facing the church in the western world is how does faith relate to a consumer culture. my hunch which i'll elaborate on at a future date is that it has to contain both engagement and resistance. this little video is a humorous piece of resistance that works by being marketed and sold! anyway get hold of it and enjoy.
