BALALAIKA BALLIN'




If you've ever taken Western Civ, you know that Greeks have always had a thing for their thingies.  These contestants on a Greek talent show demonstrate that even with two hands tied behind your back and pants around your ankles you can still learn to play the piano and impress your date at the same time.

  1. LOLOL I hadn't seen this before!

    The lady judge, Eugenia Manolidou, is famous for being the most conservative, prudish celebrity in Greece. So when "naughty" contestant entries take place, the joke's always on her!

    Notice how classy and excited she's at first, thinking she's about to get a piano recital, then how bitchy she gets afterwards... I'm almost relieved they cut the "judging" part out!

  2. Definitely not the right place to post this, but I can't get my computer to work to email you! I just saw the movie "In a Better World" - the one that won the foreign language Academy Award this year. For half the movie I kept thinking that one of the kid actors could play you in your epic biopic. Check the kid out - I'm pretty sure he's a young Colby!

  4. Throw on a bowlcut, some headgear and a perma-boner and you might indeed have a young Colby K. Thanks Drew. I've been meaning to see "In A Better World".

    And Thanks Mirela and Soula. . . The video makes complete sense now given that context.
