Of eccentricity and film music

Right now I'm watching a documentary about a man called Philippe Petit. He's a French man who used to tightrope-walk across tall buildings, in particular the Twin Towers before they were destroyed in the terrorist attacks in 2001. I often admire people who are a little eccentric, and there was one thing that the guy said that I really appreciated.

It was something along the lines of:
"Yes, it's illegal, but it's not doing any harm to anyone."

Now, I'm not promoting breaking the law obviously, but everyone is so uptight these days that sometimes they seem to forget about art and expression.

Today's music is Michael Nyman. He could kill two stones with one bird.

Peace & Love
