Fresca is nasty, sweet tea works better for me. Or coffee. And, alas, the ITiots have youtube blocked.

If I think of it, I may turn on the computer at home to watch. Or you could tell me about it?

Anyone familiar with this? I'd never seen it before. GAWD! I love YouTube

Wow, no helmets on some of those guys. Weak helmets some of the rest.

I love the ladder climbing. I used to race up (and down) steps as a youngster. I set a longstanding record at my high school for calculated horsepower in a stair race. Only broken by my nephew who is now a pro baseball player. :mrgreen:

Remix of an old Reagan ad, I snorted Fresca all over my monitor.

Some amazing, non-traditional string players. At least not Western traditional. First, from China:

Abdurehim Heyit — Uyghur Dutar Master.
Abdurehim Heyit, two strings of fury.
Envar sings a traditional Uyghur song and accompanies himself on the Dutar.

I was not familiar with the Uyghur from China and Mongolia, but they are a group that contains both eastern and western bloodlines coming from ancient Islamic invaders. Some areas have blonde-haired, blue-eyed residents as well. The music is not traditional Chinese in structure. I find it very fascinating.

Can't recall if I posted this one before, but it is a street performer with an unusual guitar style, playing a song that has some classical construction to it. I love it.

This is guitar insanity. You can skip the first 3-4 minutes to get to the meat.

Agree...totally insane. I don't think anyone can top that. It would be interesting to play that in slow mo to see how many of the notes he hit correctly.

I was thinking the same thing. For the speed talking world record, you must not make any mistakes.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

Came across this web site and found it fascinating. You can start as many of these windows as you like to blend the various sounds. Somehow or other, it all comes together. It sounds like wind chimes to me...what do you think it sounds like?

Hey all. Haven't been posting here for a while. Life has gotten very hectic for me, including other knee surgery, almost one year after my car accident. Plus my @work account seems to be borked. Anyway, here is a great video of a talented kid. His instrument selection however . . .

Nice work on that squeeze box. Every year, the town of Cotati, CA (right next door to us) hosts the annual accordion festival. It is indeed a strange collection of people. This kid should be performing...hell, I'd pay to see him. http://www.cotatifest.com/ One of my favorite groups of the past was "Polkacide" a group of punk-"rockers" complete with a chain of sausages hanging out of one of the guy's lederhosen. You can't make this stuff up: http://www.polkacide.com/home.html
