I once restored an old Berber 45'' by Cheik Djilali Ain Tedles. It was physically snapped in half! Put it on the record player as best as possible, manually lifting the needle for each half rotation to get the track content and then later sorting out and gluing it back together in the digital domain.. Must have been some 60 hours to get the track fully restored!

i think you'd actually be WORSE off if you had 20 guns. guns are heavy and unwieldy, and you'd really have trouble running away carrying them. on the other hand, maybe the polar bear would be so confused about why anybody would be carrying 20 guns, it'd forget to maul you.

This rehearsed improvisation thing reminds me of my jazz student days. We were split into groups of 5-6, asked to each come up with a 4-bar-long improvisation for ourselves and then play them simultaneously with all our group members' improvisations, repeating the 4 bars over and over. Then we performed them for foreign dignitaries at an evening event. Each group was a different season. My group was winter. I still remember my 4-bar wail of winter wind.
