(Beware rude lyrics!)
Okay, so I may well be years behind the rest of the world, but this last weekend I discovered Tim Minchin, comedy singer-songwriter. He is the new Tom Lehrer! Smart, irreverent-to-blasphemous (he's got a serious beef with religion) and a fabulous wordsmith.
Oh man do I like Smart. Smart With Ginger Dreadlocks and Eyeliner* is a combination too cute to resist.
And as a follow-up to Madeline Moore's post on Leonard Cohen over at Lust Bites, here's Tim Minchin singing Hallelujah - which once you get past the moronic audience noises is just beautiful.
*Ash in Wildwood had ginger dreads, and I could just roll Ash in chocolate nibbles and eat him whole.
