"Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" on a Glass Harp

If you're wondering how they're gonna handle that crazy breakdown in the middle, spoiler alert: NAILED IT. Do you think as a glass harpist you ever cut yourself? Does the blood then act as the lubricant and you don't have to worry about rewetting your fingers so suddenly you become like a super-fast glass harpist? Like the Twista of glass harpists? Is harpist a word? [via]

That was so amazing that I actually started clapping at the end. Then realised I was on my own, in my bedroom.

I am so frustrated, because now I know what that song is called but I also know that I will forget in like a day, just like the other 9 million times I've learned.

Sandra Bullock plays a mean glass harp in Miss Congeniality.

Plays audio for fiancé
Me: I will give you one million dollars if you can guess what instrument that was.
Fiancé: Water glasses.
Me: What the hell?? How could you possibly know that?
Fiancé: Well the bells would be a normal thing so it had to be water glasses.
Me: Fine, then how many people do you think we're playing?
Fiancé: Seventeen.
Me: What's your real guess?
Fiancé: Two.
Me: I don't even like you.

Yes, harpist is a word - it's someone who doesn't care for the Irish.

Something deep inside me wanted to hate this with all my grinch but. I couldn't.

For me, the Nutcracker Ballet practically IS Christmas for me, so this just made my whole month. Also, the water glasses are awesome. I love the Hairpin, because it brings me incredible stuff like this.

They didn't do the crazy end part. Loved it but WAS WAITING FOR THAT.

My friend often said life is lack of passion till he met a cutest girl Angel on --CasualLoving dot c'0m--. It's where for men and women looking for intimate encounters.

It's a first and safe place for people who wanna to start a short-term relationship....no bounds or limits in front of true love.
