been watching Tom Brier's ragtime piano improv videos for the past few hours. I remember some of them from years ago. what a legend
though it's sad watching these videos knowing he was in a car accident a few years ago and is not in a condition where he can play anymore..
I think the most heartwarming thing is when he, as someone who doesn't know videogames, but is very experienced in ragtime music:
- sightreads K.K. Ragtime (from Animal Crossing) for a video, comments "oh that's cute!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSjER2T8ptk
- later memorizes it, plays it on his own volition
- gets his ragtime band to play it too, even at live events, several times over the years
there's at least 5 videos of him playing it in various forms, years apart, and it's great
It's Mastodon but "toot" is "katsu" and also there's a rabbit. Please note that this instance is primarily for Aikatsu fans!
