Go ahead, enlarge the window. You may want to turn down the sound. The banjo music is a little loud.
Always just out of reach, but keep on trying. I liked this little video.

Are you more apt to buy a company’s product if they make you laugh? This one’s cute and they get additional traffic from blogs like this one for free. That’s worth something.

The Concours de Castells in Tarragona, Spain is a human tower-building competition. It is a long tradition in the region, castells began at the end of the 18th century. The sport has rules, techniques, and team responsibilities to guard safety and success. The pinya or base is made of a few hundred people that can catch anyone who falls. The tower itself has a variety of different formations. The top three levels are the pom de dalt, made up of children in helmets. This 2010 video by Mike Randolph shows why safety and teamwork are so important.
Strange and interesting sports. I’d be a spectator.

Jonathan Winters passed away last Thursday at the age of 87. Funny, funny man, and an extraordinary comedian. I somehow missed that news. Here is a video of an appearance on the Jack Paar show in April of 1964. (That was before Johnny Carson) , (Who was before Jay Leno) for you young folks.
Jonathan Winters was at his best simply improvising, as he does here with a stick. What a quick (and bizarre) mind. Our world was richer for his humor.

Meticulously filled and tuned wine glasses beautifully played. Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.”
