One thing that was drummed into me at university was that, unlike the natural sciences, human sciences is not an exact thing. People can’t be predicted to behave in the same way under the same conditions at different times. Nor will different people behave in the same way under the same conditions as someone else.
Never mind the shadows over the nation after getting beaten by the Japanese at the rugby on Saturday. Just listen to eVOid’s Shadows and all will be right with the world.
If you’re younger than 40-ish you probably have no idea who eVoid is. Never mind – they are an 80s South African band. Their music is so evocative of Africa, South Africa in particular, that it stirs something deep within me each time I listen to it.
I grooved to eVoid on the way home today and it made the traffic bearable. This is when I don’t mind sitting in traffic because I simply don’t want the music to end. Oh, and the scary thing – I had this song on repeat! I’m weird that way!
