In a nod to the recent solstice and the rituals for celebrating and observing it, here’s Spinal Tap’s Stonehenge.
[For the Spinal Tap (the band whose amps go up to 11) uninitiated, here’s something you need to know in order to appreciate the last part of this clip. In an earlier scene, when the sketch of the stage prop that is lowered onto the stage was given to the fabrication team, the dimensions were written by someone who apparently believed that one tick (‘) means an inch and two ticks (“) means a foot. Isn’t that right?]
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
