That's juts silly.

Barbara said...

Now THAT's awesome.

DJP said...

Barbara gets it.

Which is not to say that Mike is necessarily wrong. Well, spelling, yes; but sense, not necessarily.

Silly in an awesome way!

Mike:

Pffffttt!

DJP said...

Now kids, get along. Don't make me sit between you.

In other news: see, that other blog's still doing it. I wrote the guy. This post is now linked to a post titled "Biblical Economics." Yeah, that's related.

Mesa Mike said...

No, Dan is right. It's both awesome AND silly.

Except for my spelling mistake. That was just silly.

You wanna know another awesome and silly thing? How 'bout a surf guitar version of Peter and the Wolf?

You could almost call that yodeling, no?

It brings back memories of college marching band. An ambitious senior created an arrangement of Flight of the Bumblebee for the football field. They pulled all the woodwinds up front in 30 degree weather with snow falling in Toledo. As a flute player with no lyre, I had to memorize the whole thing. It was...interesting, to say the least.

Wow.

I love it.

Light years better than vuvuzelas buzzing in my ears.

OTOH, Mrs. P. thinks the LOTR/vuvuzela thing is the best MM I ever posted.

Herding Grasshoppers said...

Well aren't you just trying to stir the pot, Daniel!

"Play nice", indeed. ;D

Hi Dan:

Off topic, but just wanted to give a shout that Al Mohler will be on Hugh Hewitt's show within the next 1/2 hour or so. If I had Tweet ability, I would have Twittered it. It is 5:23 in CA

I remember when opera singers were considered part of highbrow entertainment. I'm not sure that bringing them down to Victor Borge type of entertainment level really will increase interest in opera.

Not to say that it wasn't entertaining.
