Lunedi Lunacy

Until this weekend I had never heard of Takeo Ishii, the Japanese yodeler – but then not being a fan of Japanese yodelling I guess really there is no reason that I should.   It appears that Takeo was a great favourite on those pseud0-beer fest variety programmes much beloved on German and Austrian TV in the 1980s-90s.

More recently (2011) he has released this rather intriguing salute to chickens?????

And his most current hit has the mandatory video:

You can’t really make these things up can you?

On this day in 1820: The first 86 African American immigrants sponsored by the American Colonization Society depart New York to start a settlement in present-day Liberia.

  1. The chicken song could become a gangnam-style cult. I hope you know Australian diva Mary Schneider and her ‘yodelling the classics’? A camp gem.
