You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

This has nothing to do with religion. It’s just an amazing video by a wonderful singer — Lisa Hannigan singing “Knots” from her new album Passenger:
(via All Songs Considered)
Hemant Mehta is the chair of Foundation Beyond Belief and a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. He began writing the Friendly Atheist blog in 2006. His latest book is called The Young Atheist's Survival Guide.
That’s very joyously cool! Friendly even!
Fun video, cool song. If I had to be picky though, she’s not very good at miming.
Still, I think I may have to check out more of her work.
Personal opinion, her best work was with Damien Rice, though I know they haven’t spoken since they split but still, his album “O” was amazing.
O is a better album than Sea Sew, and probably this new one as well, but I think her solo career is off to a fine start. I don’t think she’s as much as a perfectionist as Damien (who is?) so she’s able to put fine music out at a normal pace. I have no objections.
I have her last album. One of those artists that I really like 10-20% of what they do, and cant’ stand the rest of their songs.
My favorite on her last album:
Yep, I’m with you on this. Her few good songs are *really* good, but the rest are meh at best.
I just love when one of my favorite sources of news and information shares from another one.
BEAUTIFUL! I love it! Thanks!
Loved this, thanks for sharing. Reminds me of an article I read a while back. When I was a teenager watching MTV in the 80s, videos were designed to be mini movies. The article talked about today’s videos being designed to be able to view on a phone or ipod, which this is such a good example of. Simple scene, one person filling a third of the screen.
Awww… I was kinda hoping she had covered this: http://youtu.be/EYUSB1QzPe0
Nice song. I loved Sea Sew (her first album) and I’m glad look forward to hearing the new stuff.
I feel this concept has been covered before – only with food.

Everyone should learn to play the uke. They’re awesome instruments.
That looks very Holi.
Hemant, why are you foisting this obvious Hindu propaganda on us?
