World On Fire: Happy birthday to istari_ala and siocled!

A merry Devil's Night, and to the coolest blue wizard I know, let me be the first LJer to say:

Happy birthday, istari_ala!

Edit, 13:50 CDT: Let me also be the last LJer to say:
Happy birthday, siocled!

Edit, 20:15 CDT: Oi! I missed one, according to tv_elf and bktheirregular!
Happy birthday, butterflykiki!

Sarah McLachlan's new video, "World On Fire" [QuickTime, 17.2Mb]

You must watch it. The message is so very poignant! IMHO it makes "We Are The World" look like the "Amazing Grace" video from Maverick. OK, not a clear example, but watch the video!
(And thank yodge, the Johnny Appleseed of detenteteunciness, for the URL.)

[14:19:02] banazir: Hey, what does Sarah Mac mean when she says "well it really cost $15"?
[14:19:22] yodge: the actual shot of her sitting and playing the guitar cost them $15.
[14:19:29] banazir: She paid for it out of pocket?
[14:19:32] banazir: Ohh, OK
[14:19:35] banazir: And the rest?
[14:19:36] yodge: the rest of the 150,000 went to the poor eople.
[14:19:49] banazir: OK, so she paid for the shoot out of pocket?
[14:20:02] yodge: nah, it was a charity thing. i think they raised the money for it.
[14:20:03] banazir: But who actually donated to the poor?
[14:20:06] banazir: Ohh, OK
[14:20:18] yodge: i mean, even her record label coulda donated it.
[14:20:20] banazir: So the video was sponsored and they raised matching donation
[14:20:22] banazir: Gotcha
[14:20:31] yodge: since it's a valid music video with lots of buzz.
[14:20:37] banazir: :nod:
[14:21:34] yodge: maybe they paid $5 for the video camera cassette, and $10 to some poor kid to edit it.
[14:21:39] yodge: and add all the graphics.
[14:21:56] yodge: it probably cost more than $15 in reality.
[14:22:11] yodge: unless the services were donated, of course.
[14:22:20] banazir: :nod:
[14:22:35] yodge: i love sarah mclachlan though.
[14:22:36] banazir: Prolly were, or at least paid for with donations aswell.
