  1. I read an in depth article in Scientific American about this type of Chinese
    music. The research showed that Asians do not hear what we hear.
    Somehow the music is modified within the Asian brain and it is much more
    soothing to them. Wish I had more details, but it was years ago.

    See my sleeping canine video on the ONSUG video channel
    Also check out the Cycle Man video which I think is pretty cool.

  2. That recording of you trapped in the lift was cool, not for you of course! Just be grateful you weren’t trapped with a bunch of other people and one of the was the devil. Great show.

  3. That was cool. There can’t be a lot of recordings in existence of people stuck in elevators, unless you count numerous sitcom episodes which aren’t real.
