fake languages

who hasn't pretended to speak a different language, 
knowing nothing but the basic sounds and maybe a couple words?
who hasn't wondered what english sounds like to foreigners?

this next one is pretty silly,
but listen to a bit of the song.
i kept trying to decipher what was being said.
i recognized the sounds but they are in such a random patter and there appears to be no syntax.
it's awesome listening to it.

i love this last little film.
i loved hearing the different sounds,
it's remarkably like the gibberish we speak now,
yet with more sophistication.
it makes english sound almost ... pretty!
