Monday Bagpipe Report

After a long weekend working the theater racket, I decided to toil from home today. As a result, I finally had the pleasure of hearing Southeast Portland's bagpiping unicyclist (or is he a unicycling bagpiper?) as he pedaled and skirled past my window. I had heard rumors that he was roaming the neighborhood. Thanks to the Google, I was able to find both a picture of him and an ad for his services: "Fill that void in your life with the sound of Bagpipes coming from a unicycle" says the ad copy for the talented Brian Kidd's entertainment services. Lord sakes, I even found a video on YouTube:

I don't know when that video was shot, but Mr. Kidd appears to have grown steadier in the three key aspects of his art -- riding, blowing and fingering (and please keep your witty innuendo to yourself). Consider this my post-election return to commenting on culture and life in Portland.
