SSR I Am America! And So Can You!

“A great read! I laughed, I cried, I lost 15 pounds! I cannot recommend this book highly enough.”- StepAMERICA!hen Colbert. Clearly Stephen Colbert hosts the funniest talk show on Comedy Central, but many people don’t know he published I oboem America (and so can you!) Just from the title you can guess that I am going to give this book the highest rating I can: The Oboe. Not only is this book Stephen’s personal opinions as well as commentaries, it’s everything the quote said. I really did lose 15 pounds! Another reason this book would be so highly rated and promoted by me, are the interactive quizzes that follow the chapters, and IT EVEN COMES WITH STICKERS!!!! On a more serious note however this book does pose questions about today’s economy and has helped me understand many events of the political and economic world. Thanks for Caring 😀

Musical Instruments Part 10!? The Bassoon!

Today I’m going to discuss probably the hardest woodwind instrument (except maybe the oboe) to play. It’s called the bassoonbassoon however in many foreign European countries it’s name is actually the FAGGOT (I mean this with no disrespect to the gay community) Since I know little to nothing about the bassoon except the fact that it’s one of the very few double reed instruments, I will have to consult google.com: ” The bassoon is a woodwind instrument in the double reed family that typically plays music written in the bass and tenor registers, and occasionally higher. Appearing in its modern form in the 19th century, the bassoon figures prominently in orchestral, concert band, and chamber music literature.” I could have repeated that in my own words, but most likely I would have said the same thing. Anyway the bassoon is commonly famous for its pleasant reedy quality that creates a rich warm sound. Thanks for Caring! (Check out this video:    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gXh83hNnWw)
