TA’s Kikar of Darkness: Don’t Worry, It’s “Earth Hour”

Earth Day? Feh! Tel Aviv’s a busy city. Just ask the voice of the city:

“Mah…hishtagatem?? We can’t be expected to take a whole day off in honor of the environment!”
“What’s that? An hour at night? Will there be music? And will the amps be powered by TA-City’s best spinning classes? OK, then.”

This conversation never took place. At least, we have no documentation thereof. But we do have a video post from Tel Aviv Man-on-the-Rehov Benji Lovitt, of WhatWarZone.com, who captured some of the magic of Earth Hour for those of us who couldn’t make it there in person.

Random trivia note that I think is interesting: the band playing is Knesiat Hasechel which translates to “Church of the Mind.” Of course, this brings to mind “Church of the Poisoned Mind,” by Boy-George-fronted 80s band Culture Club. Which of course, reminds us of the song “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me,” in which Boy George famously wore a shirt with what Hebrew non-phrase on it??

That’s right people, I never waste an educational opportunity. First one to correctly guess gets…their name in lights on this blog. And by lights, I mean boldface. I do not mess around with the incentives…
