That made me smile! The image of that shirt will stay with me for awhile!

There should be pianos in more train stations. This really made me smile. I needed that.

During the Christmas holidays in Boston, South Station, the main train station has entertainment every noontime. I worked right across the street and was able to see most of the events.

I really enjoyed that too Taxi..what talent!

People are so dang weird though..almost all of them acted like they were stone cold deaf. It's not like he had a tip jar on top of the piano.
The lack of any sort of enthusiasm just gripes me. Loosen up people..you'll have more fun

It's actually a pretty neat program:

Play Me, I’m Yours | Street Pianos

they have 'em all over the globe.

There are a few downtown, but we haven't made it around to see if anyone is playing them. Hard enough to get Shrek to spend an hour at the Farmers Market.

it's worth noting too, not everyone is gonna be as amazing. The Henri guy is in a touring band, equally as awesome to listen to.
