M. A. Numminen Sings Wittgenstein

Specifically, sings the seventh and last proposition of the Tractatus:

Wovon man nicht sprechen kann, darüber muss man schweigen

("Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent").

A must-see, if you're as goofy as we are.

All others warned.

My raucous laughter brought my husband in from the other room, so we had to watch it again. It was just as hilariously perplexing as the first time. Thanks for the laugh! Oh, those philosophers...

It is puzzling and lovely, isn't it?

Apparently Numminen is something of a cult figure in Finland.
