A Sucker For This Sort of Thing

I almost never watch videos in people's blog posts. I think it's some sort of emotional or mental block from back in the day when I had a 5 year old Gateway computer and a dial up connection and spent an hour watching a 10 minute interview between Katie Holmes and Joshua Jackson. She was Katie Holmes back then, long may she wave.

Whatever the reason now it takes a lot to get me to hit that Play button. SueBob included a video of some Christmas music in a post recently and I couldn't resist. It's a capella. I know, I watched Gilmore Girls, we're supposed to be petrified of the a capella. Blame my upbringing, I'm a sucker for it, and these gentlemen from Indiana University manage to do some fun things with classic holiday tunes and then top it all off by making fun of the genre in which they are reveling. It may not be quite as funny to you if you didn't pass your formative musical years in the 80s but I still think you'll like it.

Go on, press play, don't be scared.

    I'm glad you're not scared anymore; we're going to post a video of Punkin' Pie fluting "up on the housetop" sometime in the next few days!

    Does this mean you haven't been watching all those videos that I work my fingers to the bone to find?

    I think I feel the need to rend a garment or something.

    For a long time my computer just refused to play and load those videos. Changed the router and all was well again. I parbly missed some good stuff.

    I'm using the "nickname" feature to make comments on Blogger blogs, have you noticed?

    By the way, you might like the two videos I just posted.

  5. I love college acapella. I missed my calling at UNH... I should have dated my way through the New Hampshire Gentleman.

  6. Oh, y'all are misinterpreting, I'm still scared but proper motivation will get me to press Play. I'll certainly check out the fluting. And since you asked, Gerry, I'll check out what you're serving.

    Gerry, I have noticed that you've been using the nickname feature. That's a great idea, you can sign in with your Wordpress account now, too, or so I'm told.

    Contrary, uh....yeah. Well, I did watch Larry the Cable Guy! But mostly I just read the info and skip the video. I went to my iPod and listened to the Piggy Pudding clip when you posted that video. Sorry.

    JRH, and here I thought the world was missing your singing voice!
