Today's activity was America's great pastime, beatboxing. For those out there who don't know, beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion which primarily involves the art of producing drum beats, rhythm, and musical sounds using one's mouth, lips, tongue, voice, and more.
We went out to Taco Bell to get our dinner when we came across two kids viciously dropping some beats. Birju threated them that he could out beat box them any day of the week. Problem was that Birju nor any of us knew how. Also, the fact that Birju was sick and couldn't make a single noise. Birju put up a good battle but, in the end, he failed miserably, and we lost the respect of those two kids and the workers at Taco Bell :(. We came back to Mike's house and decided that we wanted to learn to drop some beats like the pros. Rushing to youtube, we came across a man named "Jaxster" and watched all 7 lessons that were available and eventually, we became the masters of beats.
Birju was our metronome because thats all he was capable of.
Mike was our rhythm.
Jo was our lead.

The way we learned was very simple, we went to youtube and typed in "Learn how to beat box". We came across an appealing video about the simple techniques for breathing and such, and progressively, we got to learn new techniques and sounds. Mr. Jaxster was a very good teacher. Also, he is Asian. So basically, that could be nothing but good.
