I wanted to share

topic posted Fri, November 23, 2012 - 10:39 AM by  Rob the acco...

Ok, Ok, I know this is off topic, but I feel that there are some folks here who, although I see them just once a year (if I am lucky), are good friends.

And it's always nice to share good news with friends... so here it is: My youngest daughter is engaged to a great guy!

If you are in love, or have ever been in love, check out how my future son-in-law Eric proposed to my daughter Nina.

Eric wrote a song and got my daughter's musical theater friends to help out.. many who are or who were in musicals on Broadway.

Ooooh! ooooh! I just figured out how to make this post on topic: The accordion I'm playing at the end is not the accordion I bring to Burning Man.

    Moderator hat on:

    This is an on-topic post based on the use of the accordion. Accordions rock, and are as much a part of Burningman as the fire tuba.

    Moderator hat off.

        You do know that David Silverman - the fire tuba guy - was also the director of The Simpson's Movie don't you.

          I knew that he had some kind of connection with the Simpson's, but didn't know what the connection was.

          The fiery tuba is such a cool idea. Such an iconic image.

            Actually there's a fire tuba and a fire sousaphone; I saw the fire tuba at the Gateway Burn this last year, lighting the effigy.. What I want to see is a fire trumpet, with a virtuoso like Herb Alpert playing "Taste of Honey":


            I still think that would be the perfect place for that song is the playa.

              " Herb Alpert playing "Taste of Honey":"

              I played that in my high school talent show at Art & Design!

              Da-dum, da-da-dum, da-da daaaaah, de-dum,dum!

              I'm glad no one suggested a fire accordion... since an accordion is made of lacquer, wood, plastic, bees wax and leather with little metal reeds, it would go up in smoke in a New York minute.
