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.)
