Tim Minchin is well-known in the skeptical world. An Aussie musician/singer/comedian he applies his knowledge to his music and brings forth some wonderful songs.

In his 9 minute beat poem Storm, he is able to distil a million tiring conversations and can show us all why some people get that throbbing vein in their temple when someone starts to hold forth in a social gathering. Watch and listen to the poem, please.

This poem is being turned into an animated film and will be available later this year. Storm the movie looks to be a great short film. If you’d rather, follow it on Twitter and Facebook.

Enjoy.
