Our capacity to think, except in the service of what we are dangerously deluded in supposing is our self-interest and in conformity with common sense, is pitifully limited: our capacity even to see, hear, touch, taste and smell is so shrouded in veils of mystification that an intensive discipline of unlearning is necessary for anyone before one can begin to experience the world afresh, with innocence, truth and live. – R.D. Laing

This is the most amazing song I have ever heard. Hear the original here and then listen to the cover by Pink Stainless Tail.[audio:http://www.archive.org/download/leda032_838/01_pink_stainless_tail_free_software_song_vbr.mp3]
If you need to search for media, use the Worldcat search first. It will tell you if a library has the thing you are looking for nearby. Then you can always do an ILL (Inter-Library Loan) to obtain the material.
