Mark's YouTube Roundup

•••



Last night my daughter and I saw the North Carolina Symphony on their "Blue Skies Red Earth" tour. It was good; I especially enjoyed the Piedmont blues part, and a capella gospel singing, and narrator David Holt's encore piece on the resonator guitar. The weirdest part of the evening was when a bluegrass quartet was doing Froggy ... I mean, Foggy Mountain Breakdown and the whole orchestra kicked in on the second chorus. After the show, we headed to Pizza Hut for some pizza. It was the lamest excuse for pizza ... tasted like cinnamon sugar.

The other day, bike riding, two geese landed on the Tuckaseegee right along side me as I pedaled along the River Road. Synchronicity or geese showing off? Been playing basketball, and had a mountain bike ride along Cane Creek yesterday.

OK, here are the videos.

1. I know it's a big hit and you may have already seen it, but it's good. "Mixed Nuts" by Happyslip -- Filipina family comedy

2. Over at the elephant blog (http://elephant-blog.blogspot.com/) Adrian Belew has been reminiscing about David Bowie. Check out this footage from 1978.

3. From Blue Gal (http://bgalrstate.blogspot.com), a couple of good ones.

a) Screaming Blue Messiahs - I wanna be a Flintstone

b) Hillary Clinton asking for help choosing her campaign song (and a response)

4. Even though it's not YouTube, it's funny in a geeky sort of way: the "Identifying Wood Remix"
