    You are my hero. Well, you're next to Les Claypool.

    Anyways, what's "throat singing?"

    Oh, I love doing that. Perhaps I'll be able to use my throat singing skills in a band sometime, but I kind of doubt it. :D

    Geddy Lee also comes dangerously close to my definition of "throat singing", by the way.

    Edit: Oh, you mean doing THAT! I thought by "throat singing", you meant singing like Les Claypool. I don't really know what he's doing is called, either, but it also makes your voice sound higher than it really is.

    Damn, I wanted to do a bit of "Tom Sawyer" with my "special technique", but my mike seems to be busted. :(
