Appropos of nothing except Bren's location...

I was minding my own business listening to Pandora yesterday, when I'm suddenly exposed to "One Great City!" by The Weakerthans, in which the chorus repeats "I hate Winnipeg".

Why?

They were probably there during winter.

Yes, I'm familiar with the Tuvan throat singers. It takes years of practice for them to do what they do. Note that I said the ability to hit more than one note at a time usually indicates there is something very wrong with the vocal chords.

Somehow, I doubt David Lee Roth is a Tuvan throat singer (or any other variety of Overtone singer). I suspect the reason he's able to hit more than one note at a time is because he's screwed his voice. Come to think of it, after hearing what he does to his throat to hit the high notes, I'm certain that's how he's able to do it.

The Weakerthans are from here. "One Great City" was the old city motto... read the lyrics... just a good perspective on what sucks about this city (at least when it was written).

Good way to stay humble...
