Frank Zappa, the Exxon Valdez and the Deep Horizon Fiasco

I'm a fairly visual person, as those who have waded through the posts on this blog will realize. But, while wondering the world of YouTube I came across Frank Zappa's chilling synclavier work Outrage at Valdez which was used as the score for a video produced by Jacques Cousteau's son, Jean-Michael. Oddly, I find that this audio does a much better job of capturing the sinister destruction brought about by the Exxon Valdez, and now being repeated in the Gulf, than any photo. Here's the first 7 minutes of the song.
