** To drive the point home, she closes the video by intercutting ''Rent''s "La Vie Boheme"- in which characters loudly celebrate how hip and avant-garde they are- with Larry Kramer's enraged "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN9fjecqxLM We are in the middle of a plague]]" rant from the documentary ''How To Survive a Plague.''

* The Loose Canon episode on 9/11. Unsurprisingly, Lindsay delves into some pretty heavy territory regarding a terror attack that claimed 3000 lives and set up many other wide-reaching and destructive events in the years following. It's made worse by the fact that Lindsay is a New Yorker herself and recently experienced a release of suppressed emotions she didn't even know she held back when visiting a museum about 9/11.

It's not entirely mournful, but the tragedy of the attack definitely shows.
