Band/choir/orchestra geekiness meets Doctor Who geekiness

Still dog-paddling, gazing across the bleak expanse of February. Here's something keeping me afloat. This is the third collaboration of the Doctor Who Fan Orchestra, where musicians and singers from all over the place submit a video of themselves playing or singing part of Murray Gold's Doctor Who score which is then knitted into a quilt of gorgeous geekiness. (Yes, I know. You don't knit quilts. It's been a tough month, okay?) The first two were fun, but sounded a wee bit like high school band class. This one is the best one yet.

I just love these glimpses of bedrooms, living rooms, band rooms from all over. Coordinator Stephen Willis tells us: This final mix includes a total of 177 submissions from 154 individual participants, ranging in age from 11 to 57, and who are located in at least 18 different countries across the world, including: United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Spain, France, Russia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Hong Kong, Israel, Latvia, Norway, Poland, Singapore, Sweden and Switzerland.

I've subscribed to http://www.youtube.com/user/socksofbalhoon so I won't miss the next one! (Don't quite have the nerve nor the technology to join in!)
