Real or Hoax? You be the Judge

Stumbled on this site the other day: http://www.wingmusic.co.nz/listen.html is it for real or a hoax? Either way it's hilarious.

No, it's real enough. She even got a grant from the local council for "promotion". According to her site she does "do performances in Rest Homes and Hospitals", so I'd make sure you don't fall ill anywhere near New Zealand.

Still I think we ought to latch on and release  a JOS compilation. My suggestions for the first three tracks

I'm in Australia, should I be worried?

Nice to see I made Stephen's top three. Stephen, what is it about my posts that aggravate you enough to mischaracterize them as spam?

There's  a story in today's papers that Australia attacked New Zealand with an F-111. An exercise you see. The Defence Minister is denying it was an attack.

F-111?

The Aussie's are still flying the 'Varks? Do they still maintain a squadron of Sopwith Camels, too?

Australia has taken Joel's advice and decided not to "rewrite" their fighter jets from scratch. We refactor them.

"Hailed as a "holy grail of recording" by Recording magazine, Auto-Tune is a multi-platform plug-in that corrects intonation problems in vocals or solo instruments, in real time, without distortion or artifacts, while preserving all of the expressive nuance of the original performance with audio quality so pristine that the only difference between what goes in and what comes out is the intonation. Over a typical pitch correction range, it is simply not possible to tell that a sound has been processed, except that it is perfectly in tune."
