This is awesome. There’s no other way to describe this. *** If you’re going to go down, you might as well blame it on an imaginary animal like Twitter did with their infamous Fail Whale. I’ve taken the liberty of creating this animal for you: Please use it. Please oh please. -The Oatmeal Update: Tumblr used the TumblBeasts! Check it out :D

The Smiths Project by Janice Whaley. This is one hardcore Smiths fan. The best part is that her singing voice sounds really good. Give it a listen. The music contains no instruments- everything you hear was made using only my voice and basic effects/editing techniques. I use pitch-shift to drop my voice down for bass lines, but otherwise there is no pitch correction involved. Each song contains...
