It’s a man’s world

Today’s participation in the Manitou carnivalesque charades left me in a profoundly depressed mood until I saw the video, ‘It’s a man’s world‘, on youtube tonite. Here, James Brown performs with Gerald Ford (just kidding) in a rendition of Brown’s famous lament about how men really ‘rule’ basically nothing. The concert was performed with Pavarroti and James Brown together, and CP’.com linked to it this weekend, so that’s how I got to watch it.

Makes one feel good to know that these 2 opposites, Brown and Pavarroti, were able to respect each other and perform so well together. It gives one hope for man/womankind, unity in action. Wave the Peace flag, Brothers and Sisters! Just not in Carnival never again.
