Tim Minchin's animated movie: Storm

by Salman Hameed

I have to admit that living in Northampton/Amherst area, I have been stuck in numerous new-agey conversations at gatherings and at coffee shops. Alternative healing practices are certainly quite popular here - and one can get their chakras right at a number of local places. It is sad to say that I've had conversations here about energy healings, mind-shifts, quantum-related babble, and of course astrology and psychics. And this happens to be a college town! So yes, some of my conversations about these topics have indeed taken an awkward turn in the past. So here is a nice short film (about 10 minutes) that speaks for all us who have been stuck in such conversations (tip Zakir Thaver). It is a bit over the top - but then it does have a good excuse. And the music and the words make up for the rest.

 Enjoy!

I think this can be a Hampshire animation class project...

Great stuff. This is some atheism I could sit down and drink a few pints with.
