“When one of a kind just isn’t enough”…

Identical twins Camille and Kennerly Kitt are Third Degree Black Belts in Tae Kwon Do and “Distinguished Experts” in rifle marksmanship, competitive swimmers who qualified for the Junior Olympics 5 times, and actresses (in, e.g., the films Creeporia and Blacktino).  But they are surely best known as “The Harp Twins,” “the world’s only known identical twin professional harpists…. known for their remarkable duet harp arrangements of songs by artists such as Lady Gaga, Guns N’ Roses, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, U2, Journey, Taylor Swift, The Cranberries, Rihanna, Coldplay, The Beatles, Britney Spears, Enya, Johnny Cash, OutKast, P!nk, Deep Purple, The Smiths, Elton John, Joy Division, and many more.”

See the duo do the Game of Thrones theme song on Laughing Squid; then visit here for more.

As we are reminded that (speaking of Joy Division) it was on this date in 1980 the Ian Curtis, the band’s lead singer, committed suicide, we might also recall that this was the date, in 1972, on which the TV series Me and the Chimp came to an abbreviated end, cancelled after 19 episodes by CBS.  An early effort by Garry Marshall and Tom Miller ( who later worked together on Happy Days and Laverne And Shirley), the sitcom was built around Ted Bessell (who’d gained prominence in That Girl)… and Buttons the Chimpanzee.  It went on to rank 46th in TV Guide‘s list of “The 50 Worst TV Shows of All Time.”
