The Wizard Who Ate The Baby

A wizard has a snack and yet the family still loves him? What?! No, you don’t want to listen to this! The carnage! The sheep! The lack of hospitality! Just say, “no, no I will not subject myself to one more of these inappropriate folktales as I am too scared.” This one is adapted the book “Armenian Folktales and Fables” by Charles Downing. You can listen to Sean Buvala tell the tale below. Look the the gray sound bar below the picture.

Shemsi Mountain

Oh, the suffering of one brother against another. Surely, justice will prevail, but wait, those giants! No, it can’t be. Okay, well, you have made a choice to listen. We told you to turn around. Recorded live in 2006 and told by K. Sean Buvala, this is a retelling of a classic, but not really know, Grimm folktale. Turn away now, before you stuck like tar to your listening device. Listen link, foolish mortal, below the picture.

The Boy and the Silent Flies

Violence! “The judge realized he had given this boy, essentially, the right to attack anyone…” A tale of deceit, a dim young man, and permission to kill. No doubt this story will lead you down a road to violence if you listen. An inappropriate Momma, silent thieves and a bleeding judge feature in our story told by Sean Buvala. A folktale collected originally by Johann Reinhard Bünker in 1906. Listen in if you feel you must. Those sweetened nightmares are all on you. See the listen link below the terrifying picture.

Tongue and Tendon: The Talking Skull

inappropriateheaderskull

“It was as if tongue and tendon, muscle and mouth had been restored for the skull began to speak of…” Completely inappropriate but told appropriately by K. Sean Buvala. Treasure, swords, death. Ugg, maybe you should go listen to something nice, not this? But, oh well, there is no telling you, is there? Adapted by Sean from a variety of world folk tales.

Listen below.

Seven Ravens (Grimm)

“Can you imagine living in a family with seven brothers? Yet that is how this home was.” You shouldn’t listen as there is cutting and blood and chicken bones. Leave while you can. A sister sets off to free her brothers, brothers that she never knew. There’s a ring, but it ain’t magic. From Sean Buvala’s CD “Seven Ravens: Unvarnished Tales from the Brothers Grimm.”
