The Singing Bone


“A story so full of terror and murder and betrayal that I may not be able to tell you all the words.” The death of dozens, of boars, of brothers. Really, these are not appropriate for anyone, but you are going to listen anyway, aren’t you? We’ve tried to warn you that this classic Grimm fairytale isn’t for the soft-hearted. Be worried about the nightmares the words of Sean Buvala will cause. The death penalty alone may steer you away from stories forever more!!

Listen in below, if you must.

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


“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.
