Crazy Thing Happened at the Symphony

After watching the following youtube recording I suppose they should start adding to the list of concertmaster responsibilities: "take over for the conductor under any circumstance - including the stabbing of hands via errant batonage." Indeed this concertmaster was well prepared to safely guide the ocean liner of strings, winds, percussion and brass to a resounding fine. He must have been a boy scout in his early years.

Hand Over the Figgy Pudding or the Frog Gets It!

Every Christmas season I relish in the family traditions which have survived the test of time. One particular tradition I enjoy is watching the Muppet's Christmas Carol. I don't know what it is that makes this movie so special to me but the feeling is unmistakable every time I watch it: gratitude. Gratitude for the blessings of a loving family, a warm home and friends kind and dear. Charles Dicken's character Bob Cratchet and Tiny Tim are da men. Their lives are full of gratitude, always seeing the good in everyone around them. This beautiful Christmas message echoes the selfless life of the Savior of the world who intimately knows each one of us. He sees the potential in all of us as children of God; may we be believing in the same.

And this duo can scat!

Is It A Cookie?!?

What do you get when you mix someone as awesome as Kermit the Frog with someone just as awesome, even Cookie Monster? Simply the best clip on Earth, so take a look :)

Rump Roast?

I am a commercial enthusiast. For the past several days, I have had a particular commercial on my mind. The cinematography is absolutely fabulous and the music selection rocks my eastern European roots. In addition, the one liner ending is unbeatable. Thank you PBS.
