Jimi yodel

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

So Yahoo! is in the middle of a brand campaign. There's a whole Yodel studio, three actually, in NY, London and Mumbai, where people go and yodel with different background music. You can do too, online. The site even offers the downloadable background tracks for your mixing pleasure.

I couldn't just sit and watch, now could I? After all, I've helped the Yahoo brand before, why stop now. So I took the Blues background from here (the separate zipped tracks are here), dusted off the old axe and, too embarrassed to yodel vocally, did so with my wah-wah, in what I was hoping would resemble Jimi Hendrix style.

Here's the really short result piece, enjoy.

Vonnegut

"I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you different."

Kurt Vonnegut
Modern day Dudeist philosopher

It's funny (and just a little distracting) to be working on a search engine front-end, you end up learning random stuff while testing. One test query I use is "dude", naturally, so today I accidentally found such fun things as Dudeism.com - The Church of the later-day dude :D
