A non-horrible thing

Nothing funny here, but after a long and continuous stretch of bringing you nothing but horrible things (Timer the cheese mascot being the most glaring example), I thought I would try to present something pleasant. Now, in a world in which the sun does not set on the kingdom of Lil Wayne, I feel horribly out of step, but there’s nothing I can do about it. I can’t make myself like “I Kissed a Girl“. Currently, I am utterly obsessed with the song cycle “On Wenlock Edge” by Ralph Vaughan Williams. I’ll let the great tenor Ian Bostridge explain and give you an example:

The only example I could find of my favorite piece, “From Far from Eve and Morning”, is this, a decent reading from this fellow’s senior recital.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled day.
