Pocket Change

Headline: Hand Music: No Manual Needed

"The idea is to capture an air pocket in between your palms," he explains to Renee Montagne.

Wilson is part of a long tradition of people who have transformed their bodies into musical instruments.

Now, why is this type of music gaining such attention? It's second-hand news. My brothers have been making the same noise with their armpits since the early 70s!

And I don't even want to tell you about the trumpet and trombone sounds. Let's just say hearty beans and sturdy chairs were the only things needed to form their own version of a br-ass band. A regular chamber (pot) orchestra, if you will.

Having said that, I've been trying to do it all afternoon and I haven't produced one, single note yet. But I do think I increased my bust size, so that's something.

Guess I'll just leave this talent for the guys. One thing I have learned from reading this article is that boys are, and always will be, gross.

I had my first crush on this boy in my first grade class. I liked the way he could make fart sounds with his arm pit and talk like Donald Duck. The highlight of the year was when I got to sit next to him on the bus on the firestation field trip. Our relationship didn't go far because at the time he thought girls were icky.

Milred, you ain't lying! ;)

Remy: Sorry about the relationship, but at least you got to wear a cool, plastic firefighter hat.

Didn't we already go through this with Bobby McFerrin? Am I dating myself with this reference? I'd write more, but I need to go scratch and do other gross boy things.

DWO: the interview actually included Bobby, so yes, we did along with a bunch of others. And no you're not dating yourself...death has no age. :)

I was really good at making these noises with my hands and provided non-stop entertainment with my friends. Then in high school and college, we discovered we could get bigger laughs by making same noises with our asses.
Hmmm, you're right. Boys are gross.

Isn't it incredible that stuff like that gets such attention? My son and his friends do it all the time. Maybe it will cover their college expenses.

In historical terms, I can tell you for sure the armpit thing goes back to at least the mid 60s.

Air pockets! All too easy for the human body...I think vacuum pockets would be rather more interesting and challenging a theme...
