Video of the week -- they are big, but we are many

"Links-2-3-4 (Left-2-3-4)" by Rammstein.

Sie wollen mein Herz am rechten Fleck, doch
Seh' ich dann nach unten weg
Da schlägt es links

"They want my heart on the right side, but
When I look down
It beats left"

(This band is sometimes accused of being right-wing.)

A note: today is the fifth anniversary of this blog.

One of the best blogs on the 'net, IMHO. I always learn something when I come here.

Congratulations on your 5th.

And thanks, again, for the vid. I'm sending it to my son who, when in Jr. High, wrote an entire newspaper from the point of view of an ant, called the Ant Hill Gazette.

SK: Thanks!

Rammstein is a great band -- miles from the usual rock clichés.

The Ant Hill Gazette sounds interesting. Does he have a blog? Maybe he should consider posting some of it.

Happy anniversary!

By the way, are you into other German metal bands, such as Megaherz, Das Ich, Unheilig, or Asp?

So, the big ant is the 1% of who control 40% of the wealth?

Mendip & Ahab: Thanks! I actually haven't heard of those specific bands. If they're anything like Rammstein I may check them out, though.

Bacopa: The big insects are beetles or something. I don't think the symbolism is meant to be that specific. It's open to interpretation, but the general sense is pretty obvious.
