Ending 2008 on a High Note

Posted at 8:36 PM on December 30, 2008 by John Birge (2 Comments)

And I mean a really high note. Behold two slightly unbearable (okay, actually totally excruciating) minutes, but hey, it's New Year's Eve.

First, some cautionary notes:
1. Don't try this at home; it could be dangerous.
2. Don't play this around dogs; they could become dangerous.
3. Beware the dangers of testosterone poisoning.
4. Remember the advice of the late, great jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard: "Don't make the mistake I made of not taking care of myself. Please, keep your chops cool and don't overblow."

Happy New Year!
