I've seen the tape but I still think there was something up his sleeve.

And so refreshing without Auto-Tune. But somebody's gonna do it, amirite?

The pitch-shifting(?) that takes place with old recordings really makes this for me.

The word is "manualism." The practitioners are manualists. Previous Cecil Dill FPP by flapjax.

Jesus, I'm in love.

Yeah, it's hard to tell how much of it is wobbly pitch on the recording and how much of it is just that it's really hard to hand-fart in tune. But the piano seems to have gone a bit wobbly too.

One night when I was secretly staying up late to watch Johnny Carson, this guy came on. Amazing I didn't wake my folks with my pillow-muffled hysterics.

Those bass notes... they haunt me still.

Back then, the ladies couldn't get enough of the hand farts.

A friend I sent this to replied with The Four Squeezins. Though disappointingly, there are only two of them, unless you count each hand separately.

If you've read this far, you must check out this guy, playing Iron Maiden's "The Trooper". The note-for-note solo at 2:14 is not to be missed.

Iron Schmaiden. Check him out doing the Star Wars cantina song.

Imagine being around him for the three whole years when he could only play Yankee Doodle?

Between this guy's seriousness and the Johnny Carson link, I'm laughing so hard I've got tears running down my leg.

You know what, that is actually... perfect.

In my head, I have just made a mash-up of John Twomey and last night's VP debate, with Biden in the role of Carson.

For some reason this really freaked out my cat.

My goodness! He has the hand farts of an angel.

Our nearest evolutionary siblings fling shit at one another. Poop and fart humour is built into our DNA. Anenome and oysters probably exchange poop jokes.

Ah, this guy puts his heart and soul into Bohemian Rapsody!

Close up the thread now, people. We've seen it all.

Chariots of Fire theme. With theremin, manualism and sideways video.

Imagine if you could get an entire stadium full of people doing this in unison. It would be glorious.

Farmer quoted as saying: "World oil production peaked in 2006, but (see the Fukushima-Daicihi catastrophe) the leading potential successor is as of yet disastrously unsafe and incapable of supplanting petrochemicals in many crucial areas." before returning to hand fart music

Oh man that's fucking awesome.
I'm sending this to my entire family with instructions to play this at my funeral.

I love the accents and intonations of American voices from the 1930s. (Sorry, no fart jokes)
