If you ever want to read a snappy blog about the world of an orchestra musician, you should check out the wonderful Inside the Classics which is written by my friends Sam (that’s CrotchetyOriginal, FYI) and Sarah. ItC is a friendly and informative blog that covers both the ins and outs of the orchestra biz (in this case the Minnesota Orchestra biz), and whatever fanciful little internet things that captures their attention. Basically, Inside the Classics is just like The Willful Caboose only instead of hockey, they write about music, and instead of inane nonsense, their blog is full of smart ideas and keen observations.
Today I was visiting Inside the Classics when I was introduced to the Helsinki Complaints Choir. The Helsinki Complaints choir is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It’s a choir that sings a laundry list of complaints. I love them.
Because the song mentions hockey twice I think this clip belongs here, on my hockey blog.
The whole song has a very chipper tone in spite of the subject matter, and it is in this spirit that I would like to submit my own complaint to add to this song.
The last person who painted my house took ZERO care while painting around the windows, and as a result almost all of my windows look like this:
Many of the windows have paint like this on BOTH sides of the pane. Inside and out.
The good news is that it’s an easy fix (I bought this little scrappy razor blade thingie at Home Despot), but honestly. Is it really THAT hard to paint a window? I don’t have time for this kind of bullhonky, which is why this window still looks like this a month after moving into my new house.
Tomorrow we’ll resume our usual hockey yammering. I promise.
