I love Chinese tongue twisters - the language is tonal, and the number of different sounds is smaller.

You really need the tones for it to make sense - link is at the bottom.

si shi si
shi shi shi
shi si shi shi si
si shi shi si shi
si shi si zhi shi shi zi shi si de.

It means \\\"4 is 4, 10 is 10, 14 is 14, 40 is 40, 44 stone lions are dead.\\\"

I\\\'m still waiting for \\\'To Kill a Mockingbird\\\' to come out on the Wii.

Hey, all; auction winner here. Thanks for all your comments on the song. It was lightning in a bottle for me and I can\\\'t guarantee that there will be more, and to compound the problem, I am a Neandertal nerd without a Facebook or a Twitter feed to use to alert the world of any new thing I do. I can be reached at my e-mail and LJ addresses if necessary.

Oh, and if you ever see a Geo on auction, I highly recommend placing a bid. My purchase was a fabulous time, and it even came with an extra outfit for Geo to change into for the talent show. A+++++, would bid again.

Re: Guess Which One.

I don\\\'t know what it is, but something about that song gives off the vibe of a \\\"closing credits in a movie\\\" song.

Note: That is not by any stretch a bad thing.

I thought the song rocked when I saw you and Keisha perform it during the talent show video feed but the recording turned out fantastic!

According to one list I\\\'ve seen Miyazaki has 3 of the top ten highest grossing films in Japan. Spirited Away #1, Howl\\\'s Moving Castle #3, Princess Mononoke #4. It was dated 2008 so who knows if Ponyo will make the top 10 as well. I haven\\\'t seen it yet even though I\\\'m a huge Miyazaki fan, I\\\'m kind of picky about foreign films and always like to watch them subtitled rather than dubbed.

I don\\\'t want to be a fucking douche bag buuuuut, You got to lay off the mastering of your moms JZ lyrics. I couldn\\\'t even hear her. Listen for your self

District 9 Ruled. 2/3 through is when it got fucking AWESOME(the bullet catching thing+). My buddies and I were vocalizing in the movie theater the pleasure of the awesomeness. It will be the best video game ever.

\\\"It will be the best video game ever.\\\"

Wow... that\\\'s what I said when I saw Citizen Kane!

Go figure...

Wow! I loved \\\"Guess Which One.\\\" Keisha is one talented lady. You musical types blow my mind.

Can\\\'t wait for Atlanta! So sorry you won\\\'t be there for the Star Party. They\\\'ll have to play \\\"Far\\\" in your honor.

The Ukranian \\\"bossy\\\" phrase reminds me of a similar Japanese phrase \\\"Uraniwa ni wa ni wa, niwa ni wa ni wa niwatori aru.\\\" Which means roughly \\\"There are two chickens in the back yard and two in the front yard.\\\"

Keisha! Thanks for the song. Aren\\\'t you in TX? I\\\'m in the Dallas area.

I work with geophones and hydrophones in my job. Geophone seems appropriate.

I\\\'ll be in Atlanta Thursday, but won\\\'t be able to make it to the Star Party since I\\\'m meeting with a friend that I haven\\\'t seen in over 20 years. See you at Dragon*Con.

I can really sympathize with your mom about the chipmunk. A few years ago, rats ate our car (well, some of it) just before we were to head out for family Christmas:

Just into listening to the Podcast and I\\\'m compelled to post this here (just because it\\\'s the only way I know to get feedback to Keesha). Wow, just wow Guess Which One rivals anything that I\\\'ve heard from a group on the internet. I would encourage her to write more because I for one would like to look forward to more from this talented women. OK I\\\'m off to listen to the rest of the show.
