Anderson & Roe: Ragtime alla Turca

I saw these two play live last night, and they were sensational.

This is their 2-piano, 4-hand, ragtime-esque version of Mozart's "Rondo alla Turca". It's brill.

German Wheel from "Psy"

This is my buddy Julien, doing his act on the German wheel from the play "Psy".

In the context of the play, this is a metaphor for his struggle with sex addiction. It's one of the most moving parts of the show.

It's also the sexiest thing you'll see today.

Vision Trick

This works best if you watch in full-screen.

It does not hypnotize you. It just messes with your eyes for a few seconds. But the angel in the painting on my bedroom wall got totally warped.

Yes We Can - Obama Music Video

He's been in office for one year, as of today.



-Lyrics-

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

Yes we can.

It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

Yes we can.

It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

Yes we can.

It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality.

Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.

Yes we can heal this nation.

Yes we can repair this world.

Yes we can.

We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea --

Yes. We. Can.

What English Sounds Like to Non-English Speakers

Thanks to my friend Pete for sharing!

"This Italian parody of a 60s/70s pop song is sung entirely in gibberish designed to sound like American English. If you've ever wondered what other people think Americans sound like, this is it."
