This opener for “The Simpsons” was directed by the British Street artist, Banksy.

The Bird

October 10, 2010

In April, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig caused the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history. Five months later, a cement plug has sealed BP’s gushing well, but people will be feeling the effects from the incident for years to come. Inspired by the event, Sacramento rockers One Eyed Rhyno have recorded their song, ‘The Bird,’ which addresses the deadly wildlife conditions.

Pretty blistering guitar solo here.

Watching as precipitation records fall with one 500 year event after another,

I’d been thinking about using a snip of this song in an upcoming video about increasing weather extremes, but till today, I’d never heard Edie Brickell’s version.

Oil has stopped gushing. Now we’re assessing the damage.
Divers assess undersea life in the Gulf.
