The art teacher

Ok, so I am completely and utterly obsessed with the Rufus Wainwright album, Want Two. It is the sort of recording that is so perfect, so heartwrenchingly insightful, so melodically compelling that I could listen to it over and over again and still not get sick of it. Believe me, I’ve tried. For there is nothing I would like more right now than to banish this symbol of musical genius to the cellar. But alas I am condemned to play it for eternity. Or at least until each and every word has ingrained … no, no … impaled itself into my consciousness. Whichever comes first. Soon the subtle chord changes will be as familiar as the very act of breathing; the rich harmonies as worn as the headset through which I channel them. Ah, what a voice! It tremors and cracks ever so slightly, then tremors some more – never losing pitch nor breath. It is defiant, tragic, resonant and full of emotion. It is truly an instrument in itself. Yes, indeed, his minor key refrain strikes a chord deep within, making this album one for the ages. And quite possibly beyond.

Recorded a cool, fun, funny, or inspiring video (or even better, all of the above!) that you'd love to have more people see? Well, we'd like to see it. And if we dig it, we'll turn it into a Found At E Minor (FAEM) video for our Facebook audience to enjoy. Check out this awesome recent example and submit your videos here!
