I’ve been a huge fan of Tim Minchin’s for some time now, but I somehow managed to miss this song. It’s his response to this review, which is as idiotic and unpleasant a piece of journalistic wank as one can imagine.
This is poetry, people. Hilarious, biting, and entirely appropriate. (Yes, I do think the dominance of fatuous critics over the cultural discourse needs to be challenged, and you don’t do that by being nice. You do it by being cleverer and funnier than they are.)
Thanks to Sebastian for letting me know about this song. Who knows how much longer I would have taken to find it? Now I can’t imagine my life without it.
