The things I do for my art

Yes, the other day I was driving home, practicing as I was driving, some of the noises that I thought might make for interesting listenable funthings. Sadly, the kids at the side of the coldcut road did not know I was an artiste working on a symphony, and merely thought I was making a huge grimace at them. Misunderstanding led to violence, and the passenger window that was opposite the broken into one a few weeks back was almost broken by the well aimed stone that my young friend jettisoned in my direction (he being the admirable kind of well prepared type, with a stone in one hand for those drivers that look grimacey) Anyway all the face practice has paid off and led to this magical number, a collaboration of sorts between myself and the dog, prepared to be shocked and astounded, moved to tears and breathless.

I'll say nothing more except that you should perhaps make sure you're sitting down when you press play

ROFL - this could be the beginnng of an amazing oral and canine suite.
Why is that noise made by mouth always make me laugh?

That guttural growl at :14 will keep me awake for days. I suggest that you not let yourself run low on dog food ...

glad you enjoyed it Gwei

definitely urban gothic chic, the way to go Words

Dead Acorn - powerful stuff isn't it? The raw passion, the emotion in her voice. Someone was fixing cars outside, it really gets to her when they do that... not food related at all.

I mean this in the nicest way, but I think you're a nut. Not a nutter - just a nut. :)

Ach, brilliant! The smallish ones will not be disappointed this time.

A slight undercurrent of "The Exorcist" for me though - particularly the bit where Father Karras plays the tape of Regan slowly.
Glad I was sitting down. With the light on.

And I would have chased the stone-thrower for you. Tyke!
