Recently, I had a small sliver of time to myself at home. This is something of a rare event since I do have a wife and kids so the likelihood of house being empty is slim. My kids went to their summer enrichment program and my wife went to Ireland for the day. So, I had the house to myself…for three hours. What’s a guy to do? Well, I worked. Boo!
Ya, I know I took leave from my military job so my wife could go to Ireland only to end up working for my teaching gig. I had some papers to look at and grade which leads me to my next point. I needed some good music to listen to while working. I figured listening to brutal Thrash or Death metal wouldn’t enhance my criticism of the written word; I needed something a bit more tame and soothing. I remembered a while back I made an Opeth mix of my favorite “slower” songs from them which brings me to my next point – the Video of the Week.
On that CD is a song called A Fair Judgement…a killer Opeth song and turns out it was pretty cool for grading papers along with the other “slow” songs on that CD. Need I say more? Instead of doing this for the song of the week, I figured I would use it for the video because this live clip is so well-recorded and worth watching. Here is a live clip of that song from Opeth’s Lamentations DVD. Have a great Week!
