One Last Bloggerpalooza Note…



Before the sweet memories of our recent blogger meetup fades from our memory, I want to share a moment from the golden days of television comedy. This was prompted by a recognition by one of the bloggers that my ape costume was a little tribute to the Nairobi Trio. One of the other bloggers wondered aloud, “Who is the Nairobi Trio?”

So, for JayinVA…this is the Nairobi Trio!

RTG, this confirms what I've long suspected: you have lost your fucking mind. :-)

Thank you, Nadege. Their creator (Ernie Kovacs) left us too soon.

Thank you Janey for your assessment of my psychoses. I hope to be fitted for a strait jacket any day now. :)

Thank Helena for your comment. I hope you enjoyed their show.

this is news to me as well; it is always lovely to learn new music.

Thanks for your comment, Spo. the tune itself is "Solfeggio" composed by a harpist, Robert Maxwell. He's better known for writing the songs, "Ebb Tide" and "Shangi-La". (As per Wikipedia.)

Ernie was a true comedic genius, a tv pioneer and sparked a lot of what you see on tv today-both types of comedy and actual comedians/comediennes working today....ok, just the "good" stuff you see.
Google his Gorilla Swan Lake ballet sometime.... lolz
