Better to Turn off the Lights than to Light A Single Candle or Something Like That

I like this idea – Earth Hour is asking people all over the world to turn off the lights for an hour at/on 8pm March 29, 2008. I was a great fan of the Blackout a few years back and will take any opportunity to try it again (as long as it only lasts a couple days and I can get coffee from Derek’s gas stove).

I have no real understanding of how the event will work- it’s not 8 pm all over the world at the same time, right? But I’ll be there, baby, in the dark, and I hope to hear at least all of my own time zone go “Woooooooooooooooooo!” like school kids when the lights go out. I also hope to hear one loud and cranky voice holler, “Alright! Enough of that! Quiet! Quiet Down!”

Here’s a faintly relevent song.

Bonnie Prince Billy – I See A Darkness
