My favorite Sinead Video.

I was born in Dublin so the song resonates with me especially.

Based on the poem by W B Yeats – No Second Troy

WHY should I blame her that she filled my days
With misery, or that she would of late
Have taught to ignorant men most violent ways,
Or hurled the little streets upon the great.
Had they but courage equal to desire?
What could have made her peaceful with a mind
That nobleness made simple as a fire,
With beauty like a tightened bow, a kind
That is not natural in an age like this,
Being high and solitary and most stern?
Why, what could she have done, being what she is?
Was there another Troy for her to burn?

Britney – This Kiss

OK fine. Yes, I am a secret Britney fan. Admittedly a lot less secret now. I love the Casio VL-Tone backbeat going on.

University Students Against Homophobia – Get REAL Presents “To My Grade 7 Self”

Via Bruce Bishop

The reactions of regret as you go along in the video are deeply moving. “And you’re going to say sorry and that’s not going to mean anything because you can’t take it back.”

Get REAL is a university student-driven initiative aimed at eliminating homophobia in creative and dynamic ways. It is open to any and all who wish to stand up and speak out against discrimination.

We started in February of 2011 with the aim of running workshops in junior high and high schools, led by university students; this remains our long-term goal. We currently run awareness and advocacy campaigns at Western, as well as wider-reaching initiatives, like this video. Please share.

If you want to find out more, how to get involved, or even how to bring Get REAL to your university campus, visit us here:
