I can't explain precisely why, but there's something beautiful and ethereal about this video. The guy is providing a sign-language transcript of Suzanne Vega's song "Tom's Diner".
Perhaps it's the zen-like lack of expression as he waits for the lyrics. Perhaps it's the combination of fluid music and fluid hand motions. Perhaps it's the intriguing connection of certain American Sign Language movements to the actions themselves.
Anyway, I was flipping through The YouTube today and sat enthralled. Enjoy!
