    Very sad news about the passing of Nelson Mandela. Thoughts and Prayers for his family and the people of South Africa.

    As a vocalist, I cannot even describe to you how much I appreciate this. I'm joining with a group in a Flash Mob this season and I can tell you that coordinating voices and percussion in this manner is incredibly difficult. To do it in a manner that remains on the original pitch is even more daunting. Of course, they recorded in studio and that presents a whole other set of interesting. But really, just so beautiful! Thank you SO MUCH for sharing. I'll be passing this beauty along to be shared with others.

    I find at times this Off-Topic thread is somewhat confusing to me. There are quite several topics discussing at the same time within this thread. I need to trace the first post of a particular topic and look for relevant responses before I can see what's going on or even attempt to post a response. Sorry, I am slow.

    I can't stand Little Drummer Boy for some reason, lol..the bahrumbabumps or something, but that's some talent there.

    I'd like to share a Christmas song, if that's ok? This is a very neat version of of O' Come O Come Emmanuel:

    The video isn't real. Its from a tv show called Reno 911.

    Agree. Very selective presentation of history on all channels at all times at the moment.

    Don't necklace me for pointing that out, ok!

    Thank you, JiveHippo! It makes all this media almost obsolete as you always have to bear in mind: could be fake.

    What about this (the shitty sound makes it even more authentic):



    Probably a modern legend, according to this source.

    „If you believe in freedom of speech, you believe in freedom of speech for views you don't like. Goebbels was in favor of freedom of speech for views he liked. So was Stalin. If you're in favor of freedom of speech, that means you're in favor of freedom of speech precisely for views you despise.”

    I find I have the same problem with truncated (on the right side) videos. I found that I could double left click anywhere other than a place that would shut it down on the video as it was a problem before, on the 'old' Vbulletin version of Basenotes.

    Here's a holiday giggle for Next Gen fans.

    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light-years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. ..Carl Sagan
