My sons, also known as Unorganized Hancock, are featured on this month’s installment of the Today River Valley TV show. We don’t have television, so we can’t see it. Then again, our entire family is accustomed to never seeing anything to do with any form of entertainment, because we’re always in it.
The way I see it, my sons are continuing my tradition of never participating in anything as part of the audience. I’m a thoroughly broken human person, unable to enjoy myself by sitting in an audience. I never had any idea how to act when I wasn’t facing the wrong way in a room full of people. I wanted to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral. I always forget to applaud, too, because during my musical career, I wasn’t supposed to applaud, and the audience didn’t want to, so I never heard enough clapping in order to learn where it’s supposed to go.
My kids do hear applause now and then. They deserve it. I thought the quote from the Today River Valley page was accurate:
An unusual and talented musical duo from Rumford has Youtube success but hopes for real world recognition too
The Unorganized Hancock YouTube page recently passed 75,000 hits, which puts them in the running as one of the most notable bands in Maine, at least YouTube-wise. They don’t perform live as often as they’d like to, which was brought up by the interviewer. He thought they were some form of wonderful, and wondered aloud why they aren’t also some form of famous already.
Beats me. I like them.
