I had mixed feeling about that whole Live8 thing. It must have been the celebrities wearing huge diamonds while they pretend to care about poverty. I'm just as lazy as the next guy so a concert that makes us all feel good about being lazy togther and pretending we all care rubs me the wrong way because I'm just as guilty as everyone else. Sarah McLachlan's World on Fire videomay or may not be an example of this. I'd like to believe she actually cares but the cynic in me doesn't buy it. I posted this a while back but thought it was worth mentioning again because I love this and hate this all at once.
