'Pompeii' by Michelle Shocked

While I'm on this museum exhibit kick, there is also an engaging exhibit on Pompeii at the National Gallery of Art in Washington. It's not really archaeometric, but this moment sealed in time was due to a volcanic eruption, so that's inherently geoarchaeological, isn't it?

You can see a video clip of the exhibit.

Anyway, a singer-songwriter whom I really admire is Michelle Shocked. I almost posted her video-song Anchorage (I love skateboard punk rockers) on my earthquake blog a couple of weeks ago when that city was somewhat threatened by Redoubt Volcano. And I love her song Come a Long Way. She has a new album coming out in May, and a song called Pompeii. Here's the video (by the way, any political views explicitly or implicitly expressed in this blog do not represent the opinions of anyone other than me):
