Can you make faces and unusual sounds like these two famous Chinese boys from YouTube? Check out this book for explicit instructions to make "sounds and special effects, including how to create sounds for vocal characters, animals, musical instruments, and street noises, along with tips for actors, musicians, and puppeteers" using only your vocal chords and mouth. There's an accompanying CD for a complete auditory experience. Now you are ready to test out the "Nose Whistle," "Helicopter," Peacock Wail," "Spinning Tires," "Cell Phone Ring," "Star Trek Doors," "Fizzle Razz," "Sirens and Alarms," and even "Stomach Growls." Good luck and don't scare too many of your friends!
