there are so many reasons why this kicks ass: but one of the better ones is how very serious classics (like sting's every breath you take and especially europe's final countdown) go from very serious intros straight into jaunty swinging ragtime CANDYYYYY BABAYYY!!!!

Ragtime Final Countdown is basically the perfect music for tying girls to railroad tracks

Random memory: I once got really drunk in a pub with a live jazz pianist, it was a fitting and awesome soundtrack for drinking. I now have the urge to get slaughtered to ragtime 80s hits.

[I would really love to have him program one of those orchestrions or player pianos at the Musee Mechanique.]

This guy is so good I was almost able to ignore the cameraman's wheezy breathing.
kennydra - 2009-07-31
question: did the wheezy breathing continue even after the video stopped?

Desidiosus - 2009-07-31
No, I only smoke a pack a day. The wheezing on the video is a two pack a day wheeze. Mine's much less phlegmy.

So the tripod smokes two packs a day? Interesting.

The last is my favorite. I clapped my hands like a tard when he started in with that "turn around..." hook.

Needs a ragtimey singer.

I think this guy plays at Disneyland, I heard a similarly bitching medley of Pirates of the Caribbean/Grim Grinning Ghosts/Zip-a-dee-doo-dah that was absolutely breathtaking.

One of the guys they have at Epcot in Disneyworld is just great. They had plastic hammers on his upright so it'd sound really honky tonk. I don't know if he was playing Disney stuff but he did a tear-ass Tiger Rag at my request. I don't think anyone else knew the song (it is Florida after all) but they all sat the hell up when he started playing it.

I like this a lot more than I thought I would. Like, would buy a CD of it, probably.

Five stars specifically for the vest!

This virile gentleman, in the prime of his aristocracy, has delighted my station veritably. I should slide this escop a crisp finny and let him to my daughter's wedding reception!
Man Who Fights Like Woman - 2009-08-06
I enjoyed this.

ok i admit if i saw this guy busking on the street I would probably give him a couple quarters because he looks like he practiced real hard.
pastorofmuppets - 2009-08-07
I bet he bought that house and that flip camera with busked quarters.

thank god I'm not high.

4 stars for the ability, 1 star bonus for the vest, which i liked even before I saw citrus's comment.
engrish muffin - 2009-08-20
oh my god. I think I'm in love. I'd like my body to be his keyboard.

oops, stars
