An all-too convenient soundtrack
Sunday night I went to see An Inconvenient Truth at the Cumberland. You should go see it. It's not that depressing, I swear. Ok, it was a bit scary to see the shrinking of glaciers in the past 50 years.

I snuck out half-way for a pee, and looked around. Of all the cinemas in the city, the Cumberland has been most unchanged. The same carpeted staircases, the same grotty brown tiled bathrooms with the drains beside the toilet.

I was hit by a wave of nostalgia for all the mid-movie pee breaks of my youth in the very same bathroom, and this was intensified by the soundtrack: The theatre stereo was playing a Modern English song.

Terrible lyrics, wow, but a great song nonetheless. This time, however, the lyrics seemed like a climate change love story of the twenty-first century:

I'll stop the world and melt with you
You've seen the difference and it's getting better all the time
And there's nothing you and I won't do
I'll stop the world and melt with you
