Gods, millionaires and pure abstraction

I like posting music videos – it doesn’t require a whole lot of writing, it attracts a lot of readers and it’s always interesting to sort of match the music and the visualizations, to see if the video complements the track or is it more like a mini-film that uses the song as soundtrack (not...
