Watching this conjures up memories of awamori, umibudo, goya champuru, taco rice, and stewed pig’s feet while listening to the laid back twangs and beats of the shinsen and taiko, accompanied by hauntingly beautiful vocals of a dialect that I love to listen to, yet do not understand.
TMBG are cool because they explain seemingly complex scientific things through song.
One of my favorite TMBG songs describes fusion on the Sun:
“The Sun is a mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace
where hydrogen is built into helium at a temperature of millions of degrees
The Sun is hot, the Sun is not a place where we could live,
But here on Earth there’d be no life without the life it gives.”

The Police are reunited! link
I have always felt cheated that I wasn’t able to go to a Police show, but now I might be able to listen to their music live and in person.
I feel the same way about Bob Marley and the Wailers, but maybe it’s for the best. Bob is immortal.
I don’t think the Police will be disappointing, but then again I didn’t think that the Star Wars Prequels would be anything less than awesome. If things don’t pan out, I can ignore the new stuff and just keep on listening to their older recordings.
I only wish I could do that with Star Wars, but my copies of episode 4-6 show Greedo drawing his blaster first and all of the other “enhanced” bollocks that George Lucas appended onto his original works.
On a side note, isn’t “bollocks” a great word. We should all use it a bit more often than we do.
