The Story Of Human Voice Recordings

For the longest time, historians thought they knew Edison was the first to record the human voice. Then a team of researchers realized there were earlier recordings that were made by a Frenchman without any expectation that they could be converted back into sound. Our advanced scanning and computer equipment was able to do it with some inventive solutions, in 2008.

Not surprisingly, the musician is being investigated by the paranoid and vindictive Harper Government.

The Streisand Effect is working though, and www.HarperMan.ca is a hit today.

I’m On A Streetcar

as it gets, I’m on a streetcar, don’t you ever forget!
Eff walking, I’m on a streetcar mothereffer, eff cars I’m on a streetcar mothereffer, the steetcar’s wheels make noise mothereffer!

I really enjoy the Lonely Island song, “I’m on a boat”. I eve found a t-shirt for it while traveling in PEI.

What if it was adapted for streetcars?

Don’t Be A Scared Tool

Here’s a song for radicalized Canadians to sing.

I’m white and scared (clap clap)
They want my guns (clap clap)
And veils are wrong (clap clap)
Except on nuns! (clap clap)

“I’m white and scared (clap clap)
you know it’s true (clap clap)
I’m scared of terror (clap clap)
Because I’m a tool (clap clap).”
