Flight Of The Conchords songs are always strange, wonderful, sweet, sad, and maddeningly catchy. Here’s your video earworm for today….
The white stuff hit with a vengeance today.
The snow reportedly started up between midnight and 1am, by 8am we were getting 1-2″ per hour it was almost impossible for me to back out of my driveway. And Burton Street – which is by no means a low-traffic road – was nothing more than a two track each way. Even The SUV People were respecting others and leaving a good 4 or 5 car lengths between them.
Driving down the Burton Street two-track with little more visibility than say, half a block, I realized that the radio was blaring that song that goes: “IT’S THE MOST WONDER-FUL TIME OF THE YEAAAR!!!” and I was singing along just as loud as could be, slipping and sliding along without a care in the world.
Story of my life.
Sometimes something that’s “just” cool transcends its own coolness just by the sheer fact that someone had the idea and followed it through to a conclusion. This is one such time.
Without further adieu I give you “Star Wars: An Acapella Tribute To John Williams” via The Movie Watchmen blog.
Rest in peace, LeRoi Moore. You were the quiet one. Right of center stage. Inconspicuous, always in shades, lifting and supporting the dance with your saxophone.
I cannot imagine the music without your sound.
I cannot imagine dancing without you there.
I cannot believe that you’re gone. Bags packed on a plane, hopefully to heaven…
