Saw this clip from David Letterman where Steve Carrell guest starred and played a tune on his fife from his Fife and Drum Corps days years ago. Seems I need to get out my fife and get in touch our local Old Guard Fifer Don Francisco for some lessons!
This is a blog reflecting the various views, interests, and quirky things that I would like to share.
Welcome to my rantings.

"I was in a fife and drum corps," he told David Letterman. "My father carried a musket, my brother was a drummer, and I was a fifer ... I did it for a few years -- and had no girlfriends during that time."
After this revelation, he pulled out a fife, "essentially, an 18th century flute" that would lead soldiers into battle. Though he hadn't played in 30 years, he gave the audience quite the scrappy performance.
Then the host further embarrassed Carell by unveiling his 1984 college graduation photo, which featured the actor sporting a not-so-stylish mustache. "You look older in this picture than you do now! How is that possible?" asked Letterman. Good question.
