hehe... talkin' of throat-singing... I also have tried throat-singing. A Mongol friend of mine says I have done some really odd things that sounds - to him - like a Maori trying to do "Klingon opera", Mongol-Style. LOL high praise IMHO... I throat-sing in the shower and also when I am at my computer... (I also make high-pitched, vowel-heavy Pikachu-like, primate-alien chatter-gibberish as well... mostly when hyper or giddy and also at my computer... sometimes I alternate throat-singing and the chatter-gibberish => almost like 2 aliens doing a duet... or arguing... [I imagine my neighbors think I am certifiably insane ;) ]. czHANg << One thing foreigners, computers, & poets have in common is that they make unexpected linguistic associations. >> * Jasia Reichardt - creative cyberneticist *
