Two 'cellos are better than one.

Oddly enough, my public musical debut was playing 'cello, in a high school performance of John Cage's 4'33".

Lipograms are where it's at.

Living in he pas, but only mosly.

I am a wee bit tired of making up ridiculous anagrams.

I am not sure why this photo came up while I was doing an image-search for "Luigi Bob Drake," but I suppose that it is an electronic instrument, and the different colored buttons control different parameters, and the candles ranked along the left side are like Theremin antennae.  I could be wrong; stupider things have happened.

This is one pretty graphic, but don't forget, you can prove anything with facts...
