Great at Being Terrible: The Florence Foster Jenkins Story

See us at New York City's Carnegie Hall (really) for An Evening of Awesome: http://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2013/1/15/0700/PM/John-and-Han......

In which John discusses the strange story of Florence Foster Jenkins, who gave the worst performance in the history of Carnegie Hall in 1944, and who is famous (and beloved) for being an absolutely fearless, and awful, singer. This video is a kind of response to Hank's brilliant video about creation and fear; also discussed is the importance of finding the places where your talents meet the world's needs and my limited physical flexibility.

The bit I sing at the end is from "Love, Love, Love" by--you'll never guess--The Mountain Goats.
