A few moments ago, I finished taping a blogging heads segement with Charli Carpenter. Among other things, we talked about the United Nations’ new outreach efforts to Hollywood.  Sure enough, the UN’s Creative Communtiy Outreach Inititiative just put together this highlight reel of television and movie scenes that incorporate the UN into its story line. 

I think next up, the UN should engage musicians for lyrical references.  Eddie Cochran wrote his lyric in the Dag Hammerskjold era (and when Vampire Weekend was but a twinkle in their grandparents’ eyes.)  They might want to keep their distance from Lou Reed, though.  And Dave Mustaine.  Actually, stay very far away from him!
