Dueling Banjos!

Deliverance & More:  There is a wedding in Abq Jew's future!  No, not his own - that happened a long time ago, in a land far away - you know, New York in the 1970s.

Here's a picture of the happy couple:

Dr Jessica Robin Schnur & Mr Dov Israel Yellin

This means, among other things, that, for the next few weeks, Abq Jew's blog-posting time may be somewhat limited.  Also his banjo-playing time.  Also his plain old time.

To help you get through this Abq Jew-limited time, Abq Jew has rediscovered, after years of not thinking about it at all, this truly ... awesome! ... animation of Squirrel and Penguin playing that old favorite, Dueling Banjos.  Really - Abq Jew had thought this gem was lost forever.

Click here to play!

The great thing about this animation of Dueling Banjos is that you can watch it again and again and again.  It just gets better and better.  It'll certainly keep you going until Abq Jew returns from the East Coast whence he came and wherce said wedding is to take place.

But just in case you need something more: here is comedian Martin Mull's famous 1973 ... interpretation ... of Dueling Banjos, Dueling Tubas.  From the Warner Bros record promo.

Who played banjo and guitar in the 1972 movie Deliverance?  Why, them was none other than the now famous Eric Weissberg and Steve Mandell, two good old country boys from the southern part of ... Brooklyn.  You know the type - real Jewish rednecks.

Yes, Abq Jew is aware that Squirrel and Penguin are unstoppable.  You're welcome!
