RE: When new ageism and palaeontology collide

I wonder if this is tongue-in-cheek.

Enya. As implied by the post, Enya is a musician. And as you are a European,

Linkin Park) but I do not listen to Björk.)

Newage = New Age. Sewage? Really? (sewage = possible production of sewing 
products? SOH-aj rather than SOO-aj)
