  • Yeahh, that's right!

  • Welcome to another episode of...

  • Today, we have Ling Ling 40 Hours.

  • - Yeah. - The most talented subreddit in the world,

  • of course, is Ling Ling 40 Hours.

  • I can't wait for the dank memes.

  • And see what you classical musicians and

  • non-classical musicians are up to.

  • Brett: Almost 800 people that are not practicing.

  • - Yeah. - Busted!

  • We're watching you guys.

  • - No way! - Ohh, that's so...!

  • - And that's why you got a bargain. - Dude, that's so sick.

  • Brett: Didn't pay anything. Zero dollars.

  • Zero dollar for Ling Ling!

  • I n T e r E s T i N g !

  • I love how my glasses went blank. White.

  • - Like the anime villain glasses. - Yeah.

  • Villain's like, "Oh my god."

  • - What? - I need to read that again.

  • What??

  • Oh, that's true.

  • Yeah, you're kind of just looking at it,

  • but you're not really looking at it.

  • Especially if you're playing a sonata,

  • - and they're like, - Oh, yeah.

  • "You have to use music."

  • - I know... - Because if you play by memory,

  • then who do you think you are??

  • - You... soloistic, - I know.

  • egotistic violinist.

  • Brett: "Dad, please, not now."

  • Brett: "Dad, someone is dying."

  • Where would your wedding be if it wasn't for musicians?

  • You really wanna play on that speaker?

  • - Huh? - Is life really worth living without music?

  • You really wanna live a silent life?

  • Musicians are just as important

  • to human civilization.

  • - Exactly. - Change our minds.

  • - Hey. - Guys, that's too much of a compliment.

  • Hey. Hey.

  • Thank you.

  • Ayy, look! The swan is outside the ballet school.

  • - That's crazy. - Maybe it's the teacher.

  • - Yeah. Yeah. - The, the ballet, ballerinas are learning from the swan.

  • Brett: It's like, this is how you do it.

  • Yeah.

  • Yeah, I... I can't...

  • I mean, depends on the classical music, obviously.

  • Sometimes you want to just listen,

  • and have a nice background music.

  • But I'd say I agree that most of the time that

  • if classical music is on,

  • - my instinct is try to guess what it is. - Mhmm.

  • Or if it's a violinist, who's playing.

  • - Yeah, it really depends on the piece, right? Like... - Yeah.

  • If it's Mozart Violin Sonata,

  • it'd be a lot easier to...

  • kind of let it sit in the background compared to...

  • - Schoenberg. Or Strauss. - Strauss.

  • Strauss, uh... Don Juan.

  • - Yeah. I can't really study to that. - Yeah, you can't study to that!

  • - It's too intense. - Yeah.

  • Wait wait wait.

  • You're the chosen one.

  • Yeah, you haveLing Ling's like,

  • - "You get a chance." - Yeah.

  • "Up you go."

  • (both) Yay!

  • Lamentable, wel

  • We welcome lamentable to our words gang.

  • Society these days.

  • - Just so lamentable. - Dude. I know.

  • Young people can't appreciate classical music.

  • It's all too short attention span now.

  • Dude, I like the practice watch! Yeah!

  • Nice one!

  • - Dude, that's sick! - And that drawing is...

  • That is actually...

  • "Making classical music relevant."

  • "Ling Ling wannabes unite."

  • - That's so good. - "40 hours." Dude, that's sick.

  • - And what's the piece? - "If you can play it slowly, you can play it quickly."

  • Yeah, what is the piece?

  • Uhh...

  • Eddy: It's Sibelius!

  • Nice.

  • From a non-musician!

  • They picked Sibelius. I'm impressed.

  • Welcome to the the music gang.

  • Yes.

  • - Oh, yeah. "Kof" is such a common, um... - "Kof." Yeah.

  • - There's like a... - It's like "Kov..."

  • "Kov..."

  • "Kovsky."

  • Wow.

  • Hey, NASA! I'm still waiting for my paycheck!

  • - Yeah. - Been acting for the last 26 years!

  • Where's my paycheck?

  • - Brett: Welcome! - Eddy: That's awesome!

  • I think piano is one of the best things to own,

  • like have in a house.

  • It's so aesthetically nice.

  • - Yep. - And also music-wise, it's just...

  • - You can just play. - You can just play.

  • That's nice! Wow, dude, that actually looks pretty.

  • Brett: I like the carpet as well, you know?

  • - Yeah. - And it's got an actual piano stool.

  • You do not kick the stool.

  • Nice one! I like the hoodie as well. Sacrilegious.

  • Nice one.

  • Even got your glasses shape right.

  • Oh, yeah!

  • - Wow. - Nice.

  • Dude.

  • - It would be like... BOOM! - That would have... Yeah!

  • - The whole screen! Yeah. - That would be the entire screen.

  • I guess they're thinking about how editor-san has to

  • - subtitle while we're sight-reading. - Ah, yeah, yeah.

  • But we're sightreading a single line.

  • In a movie, typically...

  • - I'm thinking like, an orchestral soundtrack like Marvel, - They have other things... Dude.

  • you'd have like 20 lines.

  • It'd be nice to see if they could put it.

  • I don't think most people can read music,

  • and that music enhances what they hear.

  • - Well, I don't... That's like, - Like, that's some next level genius.

  • - you gotta be Beethoven, or someone like, - Yeah.

  • - top genius. - Yeah.

  • I know this is just a meme,

  • - and we're taking this way too serious, but... - I know.

  • Stick with us.

  • Like, imagine you're watching a foreign film.

  • You can't understand, but you read the subtitles.

  • But if you're listening to foreign music,

  • reading the score doesn't help you...

  • ...digest the music better,

  • you're still just hearing the music.

  • Yeah. That's true.

  • - But it's a funny meme. I like it. - It's a funny one.

  • Violin-chan is alive!

  • - Oh my god, first post! - She's on our Reddit! Whoo!

  • - Dude, I hate it when we mix bubble teas. - Yeah, it's disgusting.

  • Come on, guys. Bubble tea sharing is caring.

  • Do you want bubble tea?

  • You can...

  • ...not share with me.

  • That's right.

  • That's right.

  • Did you see this meme?

  • - Yeah. - Do we feel closer now?

  • Oh, that stretched my back muscles.

  • - Oh, that's... - Who looks beautiful when they sleep??

  • - Is that even, like... - Yeah.

  • I'm pretty sure everyone sleeps just like...

  • I'm so dead!

  • - I can feel the pain in that. - I can see that.

  • Yeah.

  • That's so true.

  • Hey! But he adapted.

  • - Yeah. He actually was like... - Yeah.

  • "I got it."

  • And he went through it.

  • So you got to adapt!

  • - Be adaptable! - Yes.

  • When you play a wrong note,

  • you must keep going,

  • - and change, and adapt! - Yes!

  • And now we have a triangle, recorder, Shaun's bass.

  • Oh, wow. They know everything.

  • - "4040 - The Entire Orchestra." - Alright.

  • - Dude, that would be like, 30 violins. - Let's do it!

  • By 4040, we will

  • Nah, I don't think I should make any promises.

  • No, let's do it.
