Landfill Harmonic Closes out the Year Nicely
So there is a town in Paraguay that apparently either is right next to a dump or it is a dump or it contains a dump. Anyway there is this dump. And instead of just busting bottles and looking for Playboys like I did when I went to the dump with my friends, these kids make musical instruments out of things. And not stupid Fat Albert ones. They make REAL instruments.
I couldn’t make a violin out of stuff I found at the dump unless the junk I found was a not-very-broken violin. In a pinch maybe I could make a drum out of a bucket, but nothing like these kids do. So if you were all sad about the way 2012 worked out, then take a look at this. It’s hopeful, happy and the kind of thing that you want other people to see. This is apparently a trailer for a movie they made about the kids. Details here.
I don’t usually watch documentaries (or things in Spanish) but I will watch this. In fact I think the only way this could be any better is if they learned to play the theme song from Sanford and Son. Check it out and Happy New Year.
