Let It Go

"Is this a programme for children?" my mother asked.

"It's Christmas Day," I said, "Everything is for children."

We watched Frozen together. Well, I watched it and she dozed. You've got to love it. If my grand daughters are going to grow up surrounded by corporate product then this is the sort of product I'd like the corporations to be turning out. Mostly it's mainstream Disney, but with a couple of twists that subvert the time-honoured narrative- and, of course, the heart of it is the song. That's what will last. That's what we take away with us.

George Michael RIP

Talking about songs that make a difference, I've just played the video for George Michael's Outside. What a great way that was of hitting back...

Jesus saves... all...
