I’ve mentioned Tim Minchin before, he’s the British-born Australian comedian who happens to be an atheist, and I keep meaning to track down more of his work. Then I get distracted and forget to do so. I was reminded of this intention on my part this evening by this entry at The Meming of Life in which Dale McGowan talks about his selfish desire to not allow Tim Minchin to die until after he has passed away himself.
He cites as justification for this irrational desire just how amazing Tim’s comedic and musical talents are. He presents the following as one of the examples of why. It’s technically a Christmas song, but today is Thanksgiving so I feel I can get away with it. It’s called White Wine in the Sun:
I was not at all prepared for the emotional reaction I had to this wonderful song. Especially not while sitting at work at the end of my shift just about to go home for the night. I tend to be rather sentimental myself and, while I don’t have the best relationship with all the members of my family, the song hits home with how thoughts of family make me feel.
I’m definitely going to have to purchase some of his CDs.
