The Deep

When I'm reading a web page and see a link that might be interesting, I usually open it in a new (backgrounded) tab and keep reading, without really even being conscious of it. I'm sure most of you do the same. So a coupe of weeks ago I was going through a window with maybe 100 such, some waiting since April. I closed a tab, saw a youtube.com URL in the next one, shifted my eyes to a different window while it started to load — and spent the next 5½ minutes with my jaw hanging open, in total awe.

And I've been trying to write a post about it ever since. And just now, finally had the dawn-breaks-over-marble-head realization that I am never going to craft the perfect introduction that will induce everyone who reads my words to discover this astounding work for themselves. And that's okay.

Spend five minutes with The Deep. Maybe read the annotated lyrics on genius.com while you listen. But do listen. You'll be glad you did.
