Clip 1 Dramatic Tarsier.

Over the years my offspring have sent me some wonderful YouTube clips.  They've uplifted me when I was fed up, shocked me when I was complacent, informed me when I was ignorant, entertained me when I was relaxed (I'm never bored), and made me laugh so hard I've cried and my face has hurt.

This week as I'm flat out at school, painting and giving art ed presentations, I've decided to share some of the best and/or funniest with you.  Already done Tommy Emmanuel,  Matt Koval Matt Harding and Jimmy Nail/ Mark Knopfler.

Here is a tarsier seeing a butterfly for the first time.  For the best impact, have your sound on before you play it.

    Is that thing for real or a puppet. The camera work makes it hard to tell

  2. It's really real :-)

    ROFL!!! That's both very sweet, and hilarious!! He looks like a little furry alien!

  4. I remember a comedian called Marty Feldman who had eyes like that!

  5. Ah, Marty. I like him best in Mel Brooks's 'Young Frankenstein'.
