Playing for and Paying for Change

Change Is Gonna Come

Playing for Change

It has been a very rainy and dreary month of June here in Massachusetts. That trend continues today -- but with the promise of sunshine later this week. If you're experiencing a similar dreary Sunday (or even if you aren't) why not consider a good movie or some great music?

I posted a story on the incredibly inspiring project called "Playing for Change" about six months ago. The creators have now produced a CD that includes performances from around the world from both well-known professionals and equally talented but less well-known street performers.

Do yourself a favor and check it out. By the way, the video takes a while to load. You may want to pause it right after starting and then hit the play button after about a minute to avoid stops and starts.

If it you're more in the mood for a movie, how about giving "Food, Inc." a try? It's a documentary about factory food. I realize that summer and the last thing you probably want is to feel guilty about those grilled hamburgers and ribs you're planning to consume on the 4th of July, but watching this film just may inspire you to celebrate a healthy and sustainable Independence Day.

Go easy on the buttered popcorn.(GW)
