But don't I have the sexee voice? 

RWHN,
still trying to figure out why his wife said yes.

she said yes because you invent words like 'noseflutelessness'.

"remedies noseflutelessness"

Hmm, you're right.  I DO need a pan flute.  Great Idea!

That's what it looks like when she "thanks" me for digging out my ukelele to serenade her with.

Thanks for the tip Mang,

I just signed up for a catalog.  I can't wait to see the look on my wife's face.
Oh, and give me one good reason why I wouldn't want a Sweet Potato Ocarina

glad i could be of assistance there RWHN.

one of the step mangs plays the bagpipes and bought stuff from that catalogue. every few months we get one in the mail telling us about their brand new hurdy gurdys or whatever.

actually, one of the bamboo saxophones sounded pretty cool. (some of the instruments have online sound samples)

Ok you asked for it! This was the winner of an impromptu mid- meeting competition my old mod team had to see who could record the worst tune possible. Click this if you're trully sick of the sight of your own sanity

hm.

i . . have no words for it.

do you know melt banana?

it kinda sounds like a crossover between that and myself trying to play a guitar.

the difference is, that this sounds actually like somebody who knows how to hold a guitar properly. which i don't, but (i guess) melt banana does.

I think bagpipes would be grounds for divorce.  We go vacationing in Acadia which is a state park on Mount Desert Island in Maine.  Anyway there's a little town called Bar Harbor and they have a "Celtic" instruments shop with all sorts of harps, dulcimers, bagpipes, etc.  I remember my wife quite clearly indicating that she was not a big fan of the bagpipes.  She was, however, fond of the dulcimers which are a very beautiful sounding instrument.

i always liked:

"the definiton of a gentleman is someone who knows how to play the bagpipes.........but doesn't."  :mrgreen:



(actually have a lot of respect for the instrument even though it's not something i would want to listen to a lot of)
