Something to brighten a up dreary Sunday

With the rain hammering down outside my window slowly giving way to damp fog, things to cheer about are most welcome. I offer you this little gem that Ali, the Internet Ferret, unearthed...



This tickled me on so many levels. I am awed by the breathtaking technical artistry, light years beyond any feeble attempt of mine to tap out a rhythm to a tune. Then there is the surreal juxtaposition of the hand dance and the deadpan expressions of the performers, and the comic effects of the occasional unexpected movements. Enjoy.

  1. Isn't it just? Apparently this is a real technique that Irish dancers use to help learn their steps. But I think the performers' faraway gazes are what really make this clip work for me.

I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
