OT: and here´s the MANUALIST :-)

Wow, Gerry Phillips is soooo excellent and unique with his very special art :: playing melodies by squeezing air between two hands !!! Like most of you I didn´t know that this is actually an art form called "Manualism" (hand music) which could already be heard in old movies -- please see some more info on Wikipedia

Here´s my most favorite clips from YouTube. You´ll see that I decided on the (to me) most funny stuff -- mainly renditions of rock / metal tunes, because I can´t hold my pee when he´s starting to imitate the guitar solos :-)

A-HA: Take on me

Iron Maiden: The trooper

Europe: The final countdown

Trans-Siberian Orchestra: Wizards in Winter

Super Mario Bros. Theme !!

Gerry Phillips is truly a one-of-a kind artist, and there´s something I deeply admire -- he gives all those songs no quarter :-)
