These guys play at the Children’s Fair every year. Their music isn’t CD worthy, but they play with gusto. Forget all that… get a load of their shoes. Fantastic.
Liz, fellow angle and rock star human being, shared this with a few of us today at the office. This is one of the coolest, most inspiring, videos I’ve seen. Ever. If this doesn’t make you feel good about being alive, living on this planet, and getting to share the human experience every day, I don’t know what will. Take a listen and then head to the Playing For Change website to check out other videos and support this fantastic movement/cause.
We, meaning Karen, Mary, Martin, and I, just got back last night from a mini vacation in Vancouver, Victoria, and Vancouver Island, Canada. We had a splendid time. Our first stop last Saturday (after driving up to pick up M & M at Sea-Tac) was Vancouver, B.C. We really only had a day there so our mission was to do a couple of things in the city we thought might be good. The first of those was a stop at the Granville Market on Granville Island. We found a great coffee place to buy chai for Mary and Karen, a cappuccino for Martin, and an upside down dopio con pana for yours truly. Very tasty. So tasty in fact that I went back for another.
We totally enjoyed the market. Great street musicians, flower vendors, shops all around… very cool.
