A harmonica in Carnegie Hall – The magnificent Buddy Greene will knock your socks off

Oh, jeez, I thought, another video from the irrepressible Joe Peach, who sends me tons of stuff in which I find, from time to time, irresistibly great jewels like this video of one Buddy Greene — whom I'd never heard of before I watched the video — playing harmonica in Carnegie Hall.

It starts off the way I kind of expected it to but then — 2:38 into the video — Greene segues into a version of Rossini's "William Tell Overture" that got my rapt attention and took it to a fantastically joyful place.

A work of art indeed.

Thank you, Joe, and keep the great finds coming.

You've got a home in Pennsylvania... wait a sec, of course you do, I mean, you live there and all — I meant to say a second, spiritual home here in Podunkville.

But I'm sure you understand what I'm trying to get across.

Science grrls — "The Remarkable Beatrice Tinsley"

This post courtesy of Flautist, for the second time this week given the proverbial key to the boj city and source code by causing me to post sight unseen the YouTube video link she attached to a late Tuesday night email.

I will watch it for the first time just like you.

I must say, I'm really getting to like having her do the heavy lifting and all, while I just sit back and snuggle with Gray Cat and observe the passing parade of deer and squirrels and the early birds of spring.

Beats working.
