Cooper Being Yanni

YanniIn concert at the base of an active volcano, the loathed yet confident musician plays a piece not only with his arms crossed but his eyes closed.

“I feel the music in your groins, my lovers,” the synthesizer addict says to a crowd of crazed and cheering housewives from Poughkeepsie.

    You would have no way of knowing this, but the first time I encountered Yanni (who I affectionately refer to as Yawni) I was home sick or something from work, and was channel surfing. I had been watching some rerun of ER or something, and flicked around til I came to this musical performance. My physical response to this performance was to immediately want to take a nap. Like I got all relaxed and my brain began oozing out of my left ear. I switched to something else, talk show or ER again, and immediately my brain sucked back into my head and someone shoved the plug back into the socket and the lights came on. I switched back to Yawni, and same thing, brain oozing, lights off. It was fascinating.

    But…I was living in Poughkeepsie. Whaaa?

    OK, I’m from Poughkeepsie (and Wappingers Falls!!), and when I first heard/saw Yanni, I was taken aback because he looked just like a Spaniard I’d sort of fallen for in my junior year abroad. Oy!! But then the “Linda Connection” made me look the other way.

    I see why Linda Evans thinks he’s dead sexy.

  4. Don’t bag on Yanni, dudes. He’s my second cousin on my mom’s side. And he totally smokes pot.
