If you've never heard the sound of genuine, honest-to-goodness manual typewriters (mechanical, electric, whateverical) and have always yearned to know what they sounded like, well ... here's your chance. Performed by someone who may well be the world's best-known -- if not also the first-known -- beatboxer, MICHAEL WINSLOW of 1984's POLICE ACADEMY. Brought to my attention via the superlative VERY SHORT LIST.
