    I like the beat and the words but I find it impossible to dance to.

    Do you have a piano to offer?

    Tim Minchin rocks!!

    Just FYI, part of the humour here is that he’s not doing his usual style. Which is sparkling brilliant piano playing and song writing.

    Orac,

    I continually look forward to your next post as a means to enlighten, educate, and entertain myself, and I feel almost a sadness that my first post to your page comes as a means of this video…. but, I have to congratulate you on the video find.

    If you asked for someone to sum up every YFDoW, this would be it.

    Keep up the good work, masses of readers depend on your voice of reason as a means to combat the ignorant. This video aside, you may never know the impact that you have, you just have to know that you have made one.

    swayJenkins.

    Agree with Cath, Tim Minchin so rocks! Saw him at the 2006 Melbourne Comedy Festival charity gala and he was the highlight of the evening. *makes note to book tickets for next local Minchin gig ASAP*

    I admire anyone who can pen a song like “If I didn’t have you”, and not wake up to see all your belongings tipped into the front garden. (And I admire his wife more, for apparently seeing the song’s underlying meaning!)

    The Minchin does indeed rock.

    And his new show includes a 9 minute beat poem attacking, among other things, homeopathy. Saw him at the Edinburgh festival and it was simply great :)
