I noted a previous admiration for Matt Harding of "Where the Hell is Matt" fame in an earlier "Shared Video Joy" blog post.
I smile and cry and giggle over his videos, which I think demonstrates "Shared Joy" at it's best.
Yep, he has another video out - you can view the 2012 Where the Hell is Matt shared dance joy on his website (along with the previous year's videos) or on the teeny version in this post (thank you YouTube and Blogger):
I've also recently become smitten with The Piano Guys.
Someone had "pinned" one of their videos on Pinterest and I was charmed and tracked the video back to The Piano Guys YouTube site. I found I was already familiar with one of the members. I had some Jon Schmidt music, having been introduced via a favored podcast (apologies, I can't remember if it was "Sticks and String" or "Cast On").
These 5 gents are "The Piano Guys": Jon Schmidt, Steven Nelson, Paul Anderson, Tel Stewart, and Al Van Der Beek. (All visible and displaying their talents in the 2nd video I embedded below.)
Clever, funny, extremely talented, and with some terrific arrangements, I watched all the videos I could find and happily bought the music.
This one is probably my favorite. I've listened to it dozens of times, shared out the videos via Pinterest, Twitter, and now here on my blog: "The Cello Song".
This one cleverly shows how a piano is a percussion instrument beyond the expected keyboard use but they also use it as a string instrument: "What Makes You Beautiful".
Love the sense of Humor AND the music: "Me and My Cello - Happy Together".
I'll stop now, but I suggest you go explore their music and videos. More smiles, heart, and musical charm can be found in "Paradise (Peponi) African Style", "The Charlie Brown Medley", "Cello Wars" and "Bourne Vivaldi".
Ok, ok, I'm stopping with the Piano Guys linking. Can't help it - soooo much good music!
Two more links:
Trekkies - go have a gander at "Star Trek Continues" and at who is doing the continue-ing.
And lastly, More Simon's Cat videos are up.
I'm gonna go knit/walk on the treadmill for bit whilst you explore YouTube -n-such.
Have a good evening.
