  2. Uhm, Nessa, that's a really interesting non-working url to your book review. I don't think scat parses well in computer lingo.

  5. quilly: Jazz will take you to Coolville. I fixed the link. Thanks.

    John's comments: You are speaking my language.

    Zuzana: Skat is jazz “singing” of nonsensical words just for their sounds. I figured no one else would do it and we all know why. 

    Brian Miller: Sometimes sound is all I can do.

  10. Magical Mystical Teacher: I will try to post some tomorrow. I should have done that.

    Rosidah Abidin: Unique is a very kind word to use for it. 


    Jeanie: It does speak to the way my mind feels on Mondays.


    Cheryl: it is quite catchy, isn’t it?

    Karen G.: There is a certain odd noise in my head.

    Thom: I give it an 85 – it’s got a good dance beat.

  14. Nice. I've been watching too much Sesame Street. I can see the Owl skatting your words as he flies to Coolville.

  20. LOL! I am currently listening to Ella sing Scat on your non-existent page! And ENJOYING it! I remember Scatman Crothers - who I assume got his name from singing scat! It's not what he was best known for - but it may have been where he started! And I remember the OWL on Sesame Street TEACHING it too! How funny!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hm, I'm hearing Ella Fitzgerald here.

    ReplyDelete
  22. So what I MEANT was... what in the WORLD in that picture made you think of SCAT??? LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well, I was thinking of a different kind of scat at first...

    I like the rhythm. Diddyboppin' to Coolville, oh yeah.

  25. Mama Badger: Don’t look tomorrow. You might see him again.

    Sue: I vote for the shortest way to cool.

    Ellie: Well, it is different. :)

    EG Wow: Look tomorrow and you’ll really be cool.

    SouthLakesMom: You’ll be smokin’!

    juliana: It was bizarre. I’m sorry. :)

    Melli: I had premature posting. The ghost post will be back.

    PattiKen: She’s the queen of scat.

    Melli: I don’t know. I thought cool and then jazz and scat. Or, I couldn’t think of a real story. :)

    Granny Sue: Yes, we should have all run away.

    Eric Alder: I may have been imbibing of the almighty green stuff. (Not really. That just makes me sleepy and hungry. And I don’t need help with either.)

  27. heheheh.. good one, Nessa! Sometimes, this is exactly what goes on in the mind!! And then someone asks ' what are you thinking?' And all one can do, is give a blank stare, and hum it AGAIN in your mind :)
    Loved this one! :)
