Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

Igudesman & Joo

Classical – not classic – humor

Since our home computer connection is mere dialup rather than broadband, I haven’t much gotten into heavy broadband-eating websites with lots of pictures and video. However, Tadpole’s bass teacher introduced him to these two utterly hilarious classical musicians whose work is available at YouTube – so immensely funny that Tadpole was willing to spend big chunks of time downloading the videos. Igudesman & Joo are a violinist and pianist who combine classical music talent with a warped sense of humor.

While much of the humor in I&J’s repertoire is about classical music, it’s readily understandable even to those not familiar with Bach, Beethoven, or any of those old guys.

Seeing these videos makes me want to ask: When are these guys going on tour, and will Albuquerque be on the tour schedule?
