Word clouds 2

EDIT: I found it fitting to add a word cloud composed of the most occurring words in the Wikipedia article on Belgium. Enjoy below.

Jukebox Friday: Hooverphonic - Out Of Sight

Highlights from the music video for Hooverphonic's "Out Of Sight" include the world's fastest snail, some impressive use of slow and reverse motion, and the world's tiniest grand piano. Also, for my Norwegian readers, look for the guitarist who looks exactly like Åge Aleksandersen.

Like its sister single "Jackie Cane", "Out Of Sight" is from The Magnificent Tree (2000), Hooverphonic's international breakthrough album. Now you have another reason to buy it.
