you mean like a POD of Fish ?
are there more than Two Peas in an iPOD ?

why do Two Peas in an iPod tend to multiply like
Energetic Bunnies (tm) with UPC attachments ?

iPOD soup ? does that include Fish & Peas or Bunnies ?

hmm, does it come with biscuits ? do fish sing ? do peas walk ? do
bunnies explode ?

as long as they don't have rabbit feet in pink / blue attached to th
iPOD (sic) ... i'm cool ...

but, how do you turn an iPOD into a Transducer / Sympathetic Resonator
? ;-)

Poisson ? is that some kind of chicken / fish ? random variable ? sounds
like a school of fish

(aside: studied with Truax, Gotfrit, Eigenfeldt, Danielson @ SFU. it's
all th computer's fault, right ? You tell em, Dr. E ? ;-) y'all just
said i could play with th mixing board and th moog ;-) and th audio
box. computer assisted composition ? who knew ? must have been dis
concerting when i asked if it came with a 'ramp' ? granular synthesis &
ramps : see http://www.sfu.ca/~truax/pod.html ... thanks for th insight
and higher learning .. you'd thunk i'd know Xpods from iPods and Fish
from Fowl & whether they come attached with people ? what would come out
and i am sitting in a room sound like put through th Granular Syntheis ?
btw, i was th one who let th 'noisy' birds out of th WSP file cabinet.
apologies, but i digress ... )

Ramp & Roll ! ! ! Stairs are Passť ... i prefer my Gongs with Funny
Puppets, eh ? while th Gamelan goes Rocking along :-)

pest in th West, sylvi mCm
