Stevie Wonder’s keyboard for Haiti

A few months ago, I stumbled upon this hilarious/horrible piece of hypocrite charity: Stevie Wonder donates a keyboard to Joseph Romel, a survivor of the Haiti quake. Watch:

Stevie Wonder gives keyboard to quake survivor

I mean, of course it’s nice of Stevie Wonder to donate his instrument — or rather, one of the probably dozens of instruments. But why does he have to do it on TV, for all the world to see? It gives the whole thing a bad taste. “Look at me”, it sounds, “I, Stevie Wonder, do something good to some poor soul.” That’s something that makes me sick.

The worst part is the following, this self-righteous laugh of the CNN man:

While this is more or less disgusting, the hilarious part is Stevie Wonder’s musical message:

Great, Stevie! Finally, I know why you’re considered an artist.

PS. Actually, Romel got even two keyboards by Stevie Wonder, see this live interview between Stevie Wonder and Romel Joseph. He also got a violin, this time by R.J. Storm, however.

    Hi, great blog. I came across it when looking for somewhere to sell my MT-210. This is the only website that has any information on the early Casio keyboards.

    I was wondering if you could tell me with your knowledge, how much you would expcect to be able to sell a Casiotone MT-210. It’s in perfect condition complete with adapter plug and carrybag. I couldn’t find ANY on eBay or anywhere actually on the net.

    My wife and I are actually about to sell it to clear space but when trying to find out how much they are realised they must be fairly rare. Is this the case?

    Thanks in advance for your reply.
