" Excuse me...Do you like to Complain ??? "

.

.
... I'm not a strong believer in making tons of promises or any New Year's resolutions, which we all know will never be kept anyway... But must say that I may consider making a serious resolution this coming Year! I'll try my very best not to complain too much! And when I do slip & complain,,, apparently I can do it in a tune or make it into musical production! ~Yup, just like these folks who joined the Complaints Choirs worldwide! I think they should have it in our nearest zipcodes, no? Lurrrve this inspiring & fun movement which started in Helsinki!
.
More about the Choir : It all got started during a cold winter day walk of Tellervo Kalleinen and Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen in Helsinki. Perhaps it was due to the coldness of the day that they ended up discussing the possibility of transforming the huge complaining people into something else. Perhaps not directly into heat – but into something quite powerful! Meanwhile, several Complaints Choirs have been initiated by many people around the world!


PS: The older lady at 5:32 in the video is so cute! LOL*

now that is a choir i could join...

i think my contribution would be...

'my computer is too old and slow, it take more than the 10 minutes to watch this!'
and
'i can't hold a tune'
(unfortunate souls that would hear me sing) :)

hehe love it!

What a great idea - music to my ears!
Can't believe this city doesn't have one - plenty to complain about here.

Do I like to complain? That's all that comes out of my mouth some days!!

I get so sick of hearing myself complain that I've resorted to slapping myself. Unfortunately, that only gives me one more thing to complain about.

Great video!
