Bear with me, this one is hard to type because I am laughing so hard.
First, watch this lovely video that Stephanie found in her Facebook feed and Tweeted just for me.
This? Who cares what he’s playing. THIS IS SHEER GENIUS, folks.
Now, why this particularly tickles my funnybone: when I was a wee lad, we’re talking 3-4 years old, one of my favorite shows on television was The Lawrence Welk Show. But not for the reason you might think, not any of them. Not that one. Nope, not that one either. I don’t even know if my parents know why I was so fascinated with that crappy show.
It was the trombones, man. Specifically, the trombone slides. I was absolutely enthralled by this magical instrument that made music by changing its length.
So, take that factoid, factor in me already being in a nostalgic mood because I was hunting down another bit of music from my childhood, add a dash of mental fatigue from too many stressful days at work, and run it together with the video above.
GENIUS, I SAY!
