Beatbox Flute Player: Greg Patillo

Yes I know this is a knitting blog and that this post has nothing to do with knitting. But the world has way too many talented people in it who do way cool things to not talk about them sometimes. I read ALOT of knitting blogs and some non-knitting ones...One of the blogs that I read that is not about knitting is Wil Wheaton's (yes the "kid" from Star Trek Next Generation, and YES I am a Star Trek geek...so what? wanna make something of it? hehehe)....today he posted a vid from youtube with this guy playing a flute while doing "beatbox". What is "beatbox"? For those of you who don't know...some talented people are able to make rhythmic sounds using there mouth (that’s a simplistic definition but close enough)...it’s pretty cool. So this guy does it but while playing the flute. He is a very good flutist but then he adds the beatbox to it and it is way cool. Wow. So here are some links.
