awww man


I am so sad: "The Pavarotti of the Plains" Don Walser died today. He put on such a great show and I feel lucky to have had the chance to see him perform live a few years ago. I realize that, you know, it was yodelling and all, but I loved him! It was good yodelling. And no, I'm not drunk.

again it gets quieter.
