These boys are sooo bad, aren't they? but they're all handsome, as Sins says, just like all mudcat men; yes, they are. :)

Carol, as Jack Benny says, I don't know if I play the accordion, as I haven't had enough of a chance yet. I am fantasizing about collecting musical instruments, and I love experimenting with them. I do play a certain amount of guitar, and I'll have a mountain dulcimer soon, and I have assorted whistles and bamboo transverse flutes. I wouldn't be averse to adopting an accordion, either. :)

I'ne seen and heard folks play the accordion, and it's not bad. But...do accordions talk to each other?? I mean, do they trade notes (so to speak) on what different players feel like? Or who has too much squeeze? Or the best case with the best lining? What goes through their little velveteen reedy minds?

Bierce is dead. The accordion lives on.

But we don't know that Bierce is dead. He just disappeared. No body was ever found. He may have discovered the secret to eternal life somewhere in that Mexican desert. Probably not, but I'd rather hold out for that possibility than to admit that the accordion won.

Scientists out at the Idaho National Laboratory are working on a classified project with accordions. From what can be gathered (and that's a lot, 'cause the CIA is running it, but it might not be as accurate as their assessment of WMDs in Iraq) they are locking two of those huge, concert-sized accordions in a dark cabinet and while they breed bombarding the cabinet with tippy-top secret rho-neutrinos.

The baby button-boxes which are born or hatched or the result of cell division or however accordions reproduce will be dropped into terrorist strongholds worldwide. The babies will immediately seek 1) warmth and 2) darkness, crawling into the cellars and caves where terrorists are hiding and snuggling up to them as they sleep. When the terrorist awakens because of, shall we say?, certain plumbing pressures, he/she will see the button box, which glows in the dark because of being irradiated with rho-neutrinos during conception. The button box will let out a squeak and try to snuggle closer to the terrorist, who will grab an AK-47 or something and cut loose at the button-box, shooting the other 35 terrorists who share her or his cave or basement. Then the terrorist will shoot themself when they find what they've done.

At least, that's the general idea.

Oh, no button boxes will be hurt in the deployment of this plan, which is code-named Operation Squeezy, as they will be given the same armor that the Coalition troops enjoy.

It is not necessary to irradiate accordions with rho-neutrinos to make them glow in the dark. The "mother of toilet-seat" accoutrements with which so many accordions are well endowed are very efficient photon storage units. An accordion played in direct sunlight or under bright stage lights (Yes, some demented souls play their accordions in public!) will absorb enough light energy to continue glowing and sparkling well into the evening.

This phenomenon often induces a trance-like state among accordion players as they gaze at the sparkling trim and play "Roll Out the Barrel" for hours at a time.

Now, now--there is plenty of room in the folk music world for a well-played (no smart-ass remarks, please) accordion. Texas is absolutely chock-full of Germans, Czechs, Mexicans, and Cajuns and they all make excellent use of the accordion (I prefer Cajun myself but what the Hell, it's a big state . . . ).

Don't do it Teresa! Playing the accordion will make you go bl... Oops! Nevermind.

-- Bee-dubya-ell

You were going to say that playing the accordion will make you go blond, weren't you?

Rapaire, the flaw in that experiment is this: the larval stage of the accordion is the harmonica, not the button box. The button box is a sub-species of accordion.

CarolC, I habv struck a bit obv luck! I will soon be the proud owner obv a 1940's Hohner squeezebox. I ain't seen it yet but am told it is a little beauty trimmed in red. Friends of mine in Mississippi found it at a yard sale down there in the original case with the original key!! HAW!! I couldn't resist the price and so I should mebbe be getting it this week. Sherman told me that it wasn't as big as a Lawrence Welk model and not as small as a button job so I figure it must be a zydeco type. I will try to make a sound recording for Bee Dubya as I know he enjoys this music so much.

Schwaaah schwaah!

NOT "Oom pah pa." That's talking like TUBAS, not like accordions (and not even like sousaphones, which have come to have a much broader vocabulary than their cousins the tubas).

In fact, "schwaaa/schwaaa" (I'm not really sure how to spell it) is a colloquial Cajun word FOR accordion/squeezebox.

(By the way, there another thread, an older one, for those responding to the request "Can we talk about accordions please?" This is a distinctly different topic, "Can we please talk LIKE accordions please?")

It really is a great bunch of stories. Another one is "The Kingdom of Zydeco". Loads of stuff in there about Clifton Chenier and the ones who came before and after him. He effected people like Elvis did. Powerful, wildass, music.
