SOCIAL ANGST is more than just a blog, it is an invitation to aid in the building of wealth through the shared task of information distribution and discussion. It is a call to engage – engage in society, engage with your peers, engage in your political system, engage in spreading the wealth that is information, and engage in multiplying that wealth through discussion – so that collectively we may become more socially aware, more socially responsible, more socially vocal and ultimately more socially valuable.

We Are The World 25 For Haiti

I've been under a rock for the last several weeks and as I emerged today, I finally got a chance to check out the video for We Are The World 25.  The remake of the Jackson/Jones/Richie classic has been updated to feature some of today's most well known musicians and is quite different from the original.  Featuring a hip hop inspired rap verse and an autotunes appearance or two, the song captures the state of present day music.  Not that everyone is happy about that (Jeff Winbush over at The Daily Voice isn't much of a fan).

I, on the other hand, quite like the new rendition.  Winbush is right in his assessment that the modern day spin of the song lack the musicality of the original.  However, I find the production to be quite impressive.  To find cohesion in the juxtaposition of such a wide variety of voices and musical genres is simply amazing.

Anywho, since I'm playing catch up, I'm sure you've seen the video already.  However, for those of you who are just as late as I am, please check out the video for yourself below.
