We like Paul Dateh. Really, we do, even though Paul himself may not think so after his kinda-sorta defensive comment to a kinda-sorta critical concert review of an International Secret Agents show in San Francisco this past March. But March was six months ago, and six months is like four years in Internet time, so why don’t we let bygones be bygones and talk about his current projects, shall we? Awesome.
Most of us Asian American netizens know of Paul as the YouTube Hip-Hop Violinist, something we blogged about on 8Asians, oh shit, two years ago to the day. But this video is opposite of hip-hop as Paul plays the violin — and sings! — to “I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon” with Ken Belcher, the song made famous by Ernie on Sesame Street, and the very first song to ever make me cry. (What? I was six. Fuck you.)
