I Love the Sun!

Today, as an exercise, we will contrast Peter Merholz's ruminations on Konfabulator with the lyrics to Ghostface Killah's feelings about the Sun, as expressed in "The Sun", from Bulletproof Wallets.

Ghostface: "Look at the sun so pretty today, it's so bright, it's so smashing".

Peterme: "As the description says, 'Simulates the motion of the sun across your desktop.' That's all it does. And I love it."

Ghostface: "He'll sit right there, even if you pull your gun out; He can never run out, when the lights go out; It's Japan's turn now, the earth has spun around; I see Yellow and Green, it's a beautiful thing; The sky's blue, 'cos the sun hit the water like 'BING!'"

Peterme: "I've muted the bulk of my screen to better highlight the Sun, and I drew a red line that shows its course over a day."

Ghostface: "The way the world look when you around; Prisoners get out, look up, run at you and then kiss the ground; You my favourite, I wish we had three more of you; I adore you, plus I even go to the store for you"

Peterme: "I keep the sun permanently above everything else, but with a lot of transparency so I can see through it to my other stuff. I love having this bit of the 'real world' impose itself over my electronic domain."

Ghostface: "You make people eyes glow; You got the weather channel bugging and you stubborn when it snow."

I think we can all agree, the Sun is a super star! Bonus points to anyone who can put Peter's "I keep the sun permanently above everything else, but with a lot of transparency so I can see through it to my other stuff." to a beat. It already sounds like something the Wu-Tang would say.
