Twang / Tañido


While enjoying lunch at Meson Salvador the other day, we commented on the music videos that were playing. It was a Reggaeton channel, which I actually like, but then Sergio and David (two members of the greatest staff), decided it would be funny to switch to a "twerking" channel. It was not funny. So, Sergio then suggested to David that he switch to a more traditional "American" channel. He did a little dance and asked me what it was. I said, "Country Western?" And that's what we got. But it was very old Country Western. So I told them both about Bluegrass music. David found the "Bluegrass Gospel" channel. We allowed that for about 3-1/2 seconds and then he found some good old (1940s) genuine Bluegrass. Sergio danced for joy. San Geraldo yee-hawed. And I have the video to prove it.

Mientras disfrutamos de un almuerzo en Meson Salvador el otro día, comentamos los videos musicales que estaban tocando. Era un canal de Reggaeton, que me gusta, pero luego Sergio y David, decidieron que sería gracioso cambiar a un canal de "perrear." (No era graciosa.) Por lo tanto, Sergio le sugirió a David que cambiara a un canal "americano" más tradicional. Hizo un pequeño baile y me preguntó qué era. Le dije: "¿Country Western?" Y eso es lo que conseguimos. Pero era muy viejo Country Western. Así que les dije a ambos acerca de la música Bluegrass. David encontró el canal "Bluegrass Gospel". Lo permitimos por 3-1/2 segundos y luego encontró un buen viejo, genuino Bluegrass. Sergio bailó de alegría. San Geraldo gritó "yee-haw"! Y tengo el video para demostrarlo.

  1. Wow, that caused me to watch Donny and Marie Osmond's clip from their show, with Roy Clark and Charo. Oh my.

      Wow, NOTHING could cause me to watch Donnie and Marie! Sorry I did that to you.

      Sergio goes spear fishing in his free time. So maybe he always feels like he's moving through water. But, really, he's a fascinating guy. Picks up languages like nothing. Charming. Extremely funny.

  3. Sergio's a natural! Either that, or he's seen "Oklahoma" once too often!

      Sergio seems to pick up anything very easily. (And I thought he had no shame until I asked him to let me share a video of him twerking.)

  4. Fabulous! Once, that would have had me dancing and prancing around the room, but these days, dancing and prancing would result in wobbling and falling. So my toeses did the prancing for me. I think they enjoyed it too!

  5. The opening notes remind me of the Beverly Hillbillies TV show.

      No surprise. These are the guys who did the Beverly Hillbillies theme song -- and Petticoat Junction, too. They did guest appearances! (They didn't deliver their spoken lines as well as they delivered their songs.)
