Audio suggestions needed...

Hi all..I have just completed a pneumatic animatronic Tiki Totem pole. His name is Tahula, and he stands 7 feet tall. His mouth can be synchronized to ANY audio input (without music)...Anyone have any ideas as to what this guy can say? I have been testing him with Disney's Haunted Mansion audio, but I'm looking for some Hawaiian, Polynesian, or even some funny MP3's or WAV files...I can burn the audio onto a CD, and play it back through the controller, and it will synch its mouth to the audio...unfortunately, there can be no background noise or music, or it will "trip" the controller and respond accordingly causing "chatter"....any ideas on where I can find some cool phrases for him to repeat?

Thanks in advance...:) oh, and by the way, Tahula is the guy on the right...LOL

Hey that is really cool! If I were you I would spend my time recording my own audio tracks rather than trying to find some already done that were appropriate. You would need a decent USB microphone and a quiet place to do the recording but even with some of the free audio software out there like Audacity you can add some amazing effects to your own voice. I did this for a talking skull this past year and had people in stitches laughing with some of the tracks I came up with. You could start with "Whats a matter - never saw a talking totem pole before?" Please post some videos with whatever you end up with - we would love to see them!
