I first heard of Yo Yo Ma when I was in my pre-teen ‘too cool for shit’ phase. But when my mom brought home Hush, his collaborative album with Bobby McFerrin, the music was just too undeniable.
Years later, I would bone a chick to those same tunes, orchestrating my own side-by-side symphony, thrusting my fleshy bow over vaginal strings… The girl was definitely weirded out by my musical selections (don’t you have any Usher?) but I didn’t care. We was fuckin’ to classical.
Uh anyway, here he is listening to an introductory speech by Stephen Colbert while seated next to Barack and Michelle Obama. He deserves every honor including a Gum Ship salute!
