Words Are a Small Portion of Meaning

Well, I have four more airplane flights behind me and I’m presently doing my best to relax now that I’m home again. My notebook that I purchased early this year supports Dolby five channel surround, and I finally got around to digging out my speakers and trying it out tonight. Me like.

So the testing out of the sound involved playing a whole bunch of stuff, which included a favorite pair of videos. I’ve probably mentioned this before on this blog, but these two covers of U2’s “One” are a not-so-subtle example of how words are truly the smaller portion of meaning in a text. It’s a story about a man and a woman… no… wait… it’s a song about a race relations in America…

The effect works best if you watch them in the order I list them.
