Barry White’s supreme gift of rhythm

9 03 2009

There are only a few things in life I do not debate. In no particular order: the sex appeal of Zipp wheels, the empirical depth of ethnography, the tropical charm of the West Indies, the creative beauty of hip hop, and Barry White’s status as the epitome of cool.

Here he is conducting his orchestra in a bright orange suit. Tell me, do you know *anyone* who could pull this off? Didn’t think so.
