Tim Minchin is this week's Rational Hero from "Do Ya Think? Blog" headquarters. More information is available from his Wiki entry and many of his songs are can be enjoyed on his youtube channel. I'm still kicking myself for not seeing Tim Minchin when he visited Seattle a few months ago. After all, if this Australian can come and visit me from halfway around the world, it seems that the least I can do is drive across town and pony up twenty bucks to see him. If he comes to your town, please promise me blog-fans that you won't make the same mistake. And Tim, if you return, I promise you I won't make the same error twice. Tim has a theater and music background, and the man with the wild hair, wilder eyes, and even wilder performance, is a well-know skeptic and atheist. Highly critical of the Catholic Church and quack-science of any sort, his performances are getting the word out in a very entertaining way. Below, I have selected a short piano piece and a fabulous beat poem that are powerful commentaries about so-called "alternative" medicine. Thank you Tim!
