Crappy Song Reprise

The song that my colleague Chad Bauman made in response to my own song Viva la Library had its number of views reset due to some sort of glitch. Friendly competition aside, I feel back that his once astounding number of views has vanished into the ether. And so I thought I would share it again. Below is Viva La Library again – not that it is likely that any blog readers missed it when I shared it previously. What should I write songs about in 2014?

    The first song is obviously referring to scientific data I assume.

    Definitely not a history class. I’m taking a course on ancient Greek history this semester and professor has us reading Plutarch, Xenophon, Plato, and Arrian as five out of seven of our main history sources. All good publishers though such as Oxford’s Classics and Penguin Classics.

    By the way, I did find the reference to Plato’s opposition to homosexuality. It is in A.E. Taylor’s commentary on the Laws in his book “Plato: The Man and His Work”. “…if we can only establish the right social tradition in such matters, which is that ‘homo-sexual’ relations of all kinds must be reprobated as unnatural and that the normal sexual appetite is to find no gratification outside the bounds of lawful matrimony” (486).

    This is in response to an ethical dilemma faced by Plato if leisurely work will lead to leisure in sexual moralities. Plato does not think that this will have that result if we look to that.
