I'm looking for a website of audio clips of speeches of celebrities, politicians, etc, with all the words removed, leaving only inhalations, grunts, filler language, etc. The website, I think, was organized around the premise that this was all an advertisement for a company that specialized in 'voice removal technologies' or something like that. I found it a couple of years ago, loved it, forgot it, and just remembered it again. What's this website I'm looking for?

My parents' nine year-old Old English Sheepdog is losing muscle in his hips, and having difficulty getting up. Their house also has predominantly wood flooring.

Aside from adding glucosamine supplements to his diet and placing floor mats on his favorite spots, what else can I do?
