Today is the birthday of Samuel F. B. Morse. He was the originator of Morse code and inventor of the electric telegraph. Right now, you might be thinking "Why would I give a half of a damn about some guy who's probably dead?" (NOTE: He is dead. Show some respect.) If you don't think Sammy Morse was a swingin' cat who's worthy of a second (or fiftieth) look, listen (and look) to some musical translations of his dot-dash communication system.

Phil Tulga - Morse Code Music!

Click the link above and scroll to the bottom of the page where the "keyboard" is. Here you can type in words that are translated into drums, tones or voices. I recommend the following words... Robot, 1992 and R.A.I.O.M.B. If you're cool, you probably will try these out... and more! (I think the guy to the left is Phil Tulga. What a mighty good man!)
