“It’s not just a tree. it’s a movement.”
Is this for real? Seriously?!?
I don’t want to be that guy that just spews random hate and criticism – especially during this season of generosity but I’m just going to be real:

Straight up. If this tree pictured above or below is in your home, I don’t care if I’m a bad guest and you’ll never invite me to your house again but I’m going to turn over trees. For realz.

Of course, there was the U.S. version via We Are the World a year later but this original Band Aid ensemble and song is my favorite. Seeing this again reminds me how difficult it is to have ‘staying power’ as musicians and artists. It’s so easy to flame out after several years. Amongst the featured musicians, Bono [U2], Sting, and Paul McCartney seem to be the only artists that still have thriving careers.
Who was your favorite artist from the original Band Aid ensemble? Mine was… Read the rest of this entry »
