Two old videos and one new one.  Let me know what you think of them.

1) A new video on YouTube of a live performance by Jack Johnson, “Bubble Toes”

2) A great performance by Dame Judi Dench, of the Stephen Sondheim song Send In The Clowns”, from the 1973 musical “A Little Night Music”.  Dench performed the song in the London stage production.

You can read the very interesting history of the song here.

3) Laurel and Hardy

One of my favorite comedy teams was Stan Laurel, English, and Oliver Hardy, American.  They were popular in the 1930’s and 40’s.  I am not quite that old, and became a fan watching there movies on TV.
