First Shoebox moment, and it's a pretty good one.

    Our high school band had an orientation-type meeting tonight (yes, yes, it's late, I know; I don't like to talk about that), and after all the official speaking was done I was standing around with various of my friends.  One of them, who's coming back to band this year and is a bass player, was talking about which songs the jazz band should use as competition pieces. 
    His first choice was Benny Goodman's Sing, Sing, Sing, and at the mention of Benny Goodman my Shoebox senses were already tingling.  He then proceeded to go on for several minutes recreating the song. 
    Yep.  He doodle oo-ed a Benny Goodman song. 
    We're all sort of used to it, so nobody understood why I was laughing so hard.  ^__^

haha awesome!
Band seems to yield many a shoebox moments... at least for me.
but my band directors are crazy, so there you go.
Haha, the LOVE. I wished I'd been there, then we'd been two freaks laughing their heads off.

But seriously I don't think anyone but Sirius would doodle-oodle a song this long. HAIL THE BRILLIANCE AND GOD THAT IS SIRIUS BLACK (in leather pants and dog collar)
