39. RON MOSES: Owny Woo (1:16)

More Ron Moses for ya!

This one requires a bit of explanation.

Ron is in tech support. This guy left a message on their answering machine, and Ron turned it into a work of musique concrète!

However, a disclaimer is in order. I found this on another site that hosts Owny Woo, and I'm quoting this person because I couldn't possibly say it better:

"...Working in the tech biz these days means working with people from all over the world. People whose native tongue isn't English. People who are doing me a favor by learning my language in order to communicate. Thus I generally don't believe making fun of their accents is nice. But we're all human and sometimes it can be really, really funny. So today I will point my readers to Owny Woo. A double order of giggles smothered in date sauce..."

Owny Woo (1:16)

And the "lyrics" --

***

"Uh hello, th... this is a Clyde?

Uh, I'm in a kleine sad uh (mm) centimeter uh software op.

But I'd a body would have um owny woo? Workstation had a match is a uh eyeball to connect date sauce.

That doesn't mean a where we can make a change."

Some clarifications. "Kleine sad" probably means "client site", meaning the programmer is working for his client at their location.

"Uh eyeball" probably means "unable"

"Date sauce" probably means "data source", the input for the process. So the whole phrase would be "unable to connect [to] data source".
