Got someting to complain about? SING about it!

There's never been a better time to complain than now - heaps of snow, followed by rain, followed by below zero temps, followed by impossible-to-navigate ice mountains. I can't stand it!

Well here's a creative way to let loose on all my complaints- a complaint choir.

There's even a movie in the making...

I really like the idea of how singing creates a shared outlet for frustrations, even among strangers. Some common themes emerge: we need a better place to live; we want fairness; and things are too expensive. It must be great to get those things out in the open. And why not sing it?
