Arcade Fire nails it

Phenomenal. I just read in the “Star” about the new Arcade Fire music video and went straight to my computer. It’s at Before the start, it asked me to enter the address of my childhood home, so I entered 816 Young Avenue, Halifax, Nova Scotia. It begins with a hooded man running, and suddenly, there is Young Avenue, in an aerial view and a streetscape, the street where I lived from 1958 to 1965. The music plays, the man runs, and there’s that street, there’s the house. It’s absolutely amazing. And then at the end, they ask you to do something very moving. I won’t tell you what. Just try it and fly.
