Today's TONYblog 1 Thing

You see the poor man's kazoo. I see instrument for bringing "What Do You Do with a Drunken Sailor?" to the masses.

Have you been making music with various parts of your body for years now? Are you particularly proud of the things you can do with "Yankee Doodle"? But do the people around you seem to not really get it? Instead of smiles and dates are you greeted with pained grimaces? Almost as if they barely tolerate you? Or worse, they actively dislike you? All artists are ahead of their time, Mozart, but today the planet is really in your wheelhouse and the stars are in your hen house and the Sun and the Moon are smiling on the house of representatives because it's Make Music New York day! Bring your wax comb and empty raisin box!

WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!! It appears that I was hasty in my appraisal of the situation. Sorry, sailor. This is a citywide free music fest involving music made by other people. Although you just know there's a hippie noisemaking circle somewhere that you can drag your jug basin to. Just follow the corn nuts.

That was a fun day.
You can see the CBS2 TV News report about the Make Music NY day, as well as the Street Film documentary about day (and a report from the point of view of one of the participating musicians, too...) -

Looking forward to next year :)
