    Check it out -- my 15 seconds of fame compliments of KTTC news in Rochester. It helped having their anchor be our gest vocalist for the local holiday concert.

    And yeah, that big penquin-shaped blob standing up with the trumpet is yours truly. Ever since Manny told me "you've lost weight" I've been getting fatter ever since.

    Thanks, Manny!

    No comments on the posture either, please.....

    Now...did any of my Rochesterite friends happen to record us doing Russian Christmas Music? Because I wish they had...we flat out nailed that piece, and I wish I could have just sat back and listened.....

    Actually, I don't use the pinky ring. I think it's a trick of the camera, probably had my finger resting ON the ring, but never IN it.

    As for the shirt...well....XXL is a commodity....

    Finally, the Zellmeister live and in person! I am glad to see the real you and no longer having "Moe" in my mind's eye. Great to "meet" you!

    The curse of modern technology - the anchorman was louder than the trumpet....................

    I don't like to use it becuase I feel it restricts the mobility of my ring-finger. Besides, it makes it harder to succumb to the temptation to squeeze the horn if I don't have the finger in there. A personal thing, I suppose....
