Yodeling new [re: ]  


Described as Alpine folk music, yodeling was probably developed in the Swiss and Austrian Alps as a method of communication between mountain peaks.

Anyway - I thought after seeing this on You Tube I'd have a go at it and the following is a short recording of my attempt in the 'Happy Valley' area of Cromer. Constructive criticism only please.

Yodel

As you well know Mark, coming from Wolverhampton I'm somewhat of an expert on the noble art of yodeling. With that very much in mind, widening your stance a tad would, without question, help with your timbre. Doing so would cause the lederhosen to chafe significantly against the inner thigh causing an all-important increase in tone. Don't forget to protrude your lederhosen buttocks at a significant angle, ideally in a south-easterly direction. Although this won't improve your yodeling performance as such it is, I'm sure you'll agree, a winning look in anyone's book - particularly on a Saturday night in Cromer where, I'm led to believe, cottaging is all the rage.

Why do you always have to be so Gay about everything, Nick? It's not as though your type haven't found their place in society.

You have equal opportunity in the workplace, you can legally wed and adopt children, your presence in the media, such as characters on TV, outnumbers heterosexuals, and as for sport; you've even got twats like Ian McKellen campaigning for 'equality' there - as if that's an issue.

It's as though you people are stuck in some kind of time-warp where homosexuality felt the full brunt of discrimination.

If that was really your yodeling, it was done pretty well to my ears, even though I'm not an expert. I wonder what a man from Cromer could do with a Jimmie Rodgers song.

Strawman don't you worry about Nick's comments,
as there is nothing gay about yodelling or wearing Lederhosen.

That's not the first time you've 'accused' me of being gay, Mark. Again, for what it's worth and for the record (hold the front page, Melody Maker), I'm not gay.

I'm not sure though what it is that makes my posts at TW appear, to you at least, so blatantly 'gay'. You might cite my first post on this thread as an example but I think itís nothing more than just bog standard, unsophisticated bar room banter, the kind of humour you get from a hairy-arsed pub football team. Whilst I don't have the inclination at all to trawl through my old posts, I'm sure that it's also my default response to your own posts, for whatever reason.

Unfunny I might be, Quentin Crisp I most certainly ain't.

I think yodeling is pretty masculine. Look at Tarzan, he yodeled. What was that? Are you gonna say Tarzan was gay?

I mean, if you say Tarzan was gay, then the whole movie was a lie. And I am not buying that.

Okay, let's assume Tarzan was gay. Then where did Boy come from? Just answer that one question.
