Ever have one of those days where you just want to destroy everybody around you? I’m having one of those days. So it’s nice that I got an email from Karrie League containing this lovely video. It’s a little old - it showed up online the day before the Japanese quake - but it’s no less beautiful.
It’s an ad for a phone, but the important thing is that it’s a huge wooden xylophone type instrument, set up in gorgeous Japanese forest, where a rolling wooden ball plays Bach’s Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring. And then at the end it says ‘Touch Wood,’ which is much funnier in English than in Japanese, I assume. Also probably much funnier in the 80s.
Anyway, this video is what I needed today, and I thought maybe you’d like to watch it as well.
