Smoke Break: Midnight Oil: "Dreamworld"

Given all the commercial real estate snake oil and foreclosures filling the news lately, this song and video from Midnight Oil, about the "dream world" of over-development, pie in the sky investments, came to mind. The Oils were one of my favorite bands back in the day, and still manage to do a gig every now and then today. Singer Peter Garrett followed through with his environmental activism and actually got himself elected to the Australian Senate (in spite of his dancing in this video), followed by appointment two years ago as Australian Minister for the Environment, Heritage and the Arts.

Anyway, this song is from the brilliant 1988 "Diesel and Dust" album. Turn it up LOUD and enjoy the snow.
