Let me hear your body talk

Say, kids, there's way more ways to make music than by singing, whistling, and hand-in-armpitting!

Meet Cecil Dill, manualist!



In another YouTube clip, he performs "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" and explains he keeps his hands limber by milking ten cows a day. But that clip didn't have the same frozen-skull monologue this one did.

And then there's Joseph Pujol, a.k.a. Le Petomane. Here's a man who became the toast of Moulin Rouge for his... oh, how can I put this?... fartistry. He even had a short film made about him, and here's the trailer for it.

first off, love your blog.

the cecil dill clip compelled me to point out an old documentary called 'gizmo', the first scene of which is cecil performing his armpit party piece. the rest of the film is equally as brilliant, just try the first 10 minutes, it's a blast.
