i think this is what my brother put on my mom's computer over christmas - it looked pretty nifty, but i didn't have much time to play with it.

can you move the computer under the desk? or at least pile couch pillows over it? in any event, i always like to think that a secret subterranean base is something you can carry with you always, inside yourself. it's really sort of a worldview thing.

this mean, of course, that you will start to find out what some of those sounds actually _meant_.
(hence the virtue of having a secret subterranean base in your head)
