tinpot caffeinator

Today I took part in today's Daily Doodle challenge to draw the Tin Man. (They've decided this week is Wizard of Oz Week.) I wasn't very literal about it; this is me dressed up as a tin person. You can see other people's drawings under the #Tinman hashtag.

And random Interesting Thing on the Internet: this throat singing video, a woman named Anna-Maria Hefele who can sing two lines of music at once. (I've only ever seen Mongolian men and Bobby McFerrin do it.) Also check out the guy on the other video on the iO9 webpage, he does seven different kinds of throat singing. If you can, listen to it with headphones so you don't miss the eerie high notes. (Link via writer Malorie Blackman.)

I am in awe of those who can do that singing thing.

Me, too! I can't even imagine how must training must go into that.

Oh my god. She is playing her vocal chords like a pair of tiny violins! LIKE VIOLINS!

*brain explodes*

I like your doodle, is that a cafetiere your brain is plugged into? If so, I so know the feeling!

It's the strangest sound! A violin, or a piccolo, or a bit like one of those theremins from retro sci-fi film soundtracks. And yup, that lady is coffee-powered. (I'm actually mostly tea-powered, but the cafetiere was fun to draw.)
