I KNEW it! Obama administration starts with pack of LIES!
So the AP says the music that the quartet played at the inauguration was canned, i.e. pre-recorded. IS THERE NO END TO GOVERNMENT DECEPTION?!?
I knew it. Deep down in my bones. Being a former cellist the first thing I said when I saw the quartet playing at the inauguration was "it's too damned cold to be playing stringed instruments outside." Even if your fingers don't go numb there's no way to keep the dang things in tune.
I once played an outdoor gig in 50 degree weather and could barely knuckle through Johnny B. Goode on the bass, so I knew something was amiss.
But hey, I figured, it's Yo-Yo Ma, he's the most famous cellist of his day. He can do it. He probably has high-tech outdoor climate control technology, keeping his performance area at optimal temperature and humidity levels at all times.
Turns out they used the same technology the Pussy Cat Dolls use in concert, a freakin' record player.
Damn, just when I was finally becoming undisillusioned.
