Especially since it's only your first or second post and you don't say anything about what it is. I'm not clicking on that.

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

LOL,
That was a deceiving title.
"And This Is How You Make A Fully-Functioning Violin Out Of Human Hair"
The violin was not made of hair, only the strings. I didn't hear any hair strings tuned up to the E and A strings. :-)
It was a heck of a dramatic way of cutting a guys super long hair down to a shave.
Thanks for the link. Don't worry guys it's just a link to an article on Huffingtonpost dot com. :)

Sorry if the link makes you nervous. It's to a story, with a video, about violin strings made of human hair. What's bizarre about it is that the strings are made and strung onto an electric violin while the hair is still attached to its owner, and then the violin is played that way, as well. It's more performance art than a musical performance. You can get to the story by going to Huffington Post, then going to the Entertaniment page, then to the Arts page, then to On Our Radar.

It's perfectly safe to open, folk's.
Quite interesting actually. Has anyone tested human hair for bow's yet. I'd like to see how that holds up compared to horse hair.

Thanks. No offense meant. I'm always cautious when clicking on links. My hair is long enough but I think I'll pass on tuning it to a violin lol.
