Did you know that when you whisper, there’s no pitch to your voice?  That’s because your vocal cords don’t vibrate.  You can change it a little by the shape of your mouth, but it has no pitch.  I’m fascinated.

Also, because I was reading about them on Wikipedia, I discovered that there is a form of music called the death growl.  It was in the same sentence as the Tibetan chant, Tuvan throat singing and musical screaming.  Oh yeah, musical screaming.  Of course I know what that is.  Oh right.  I guess I don’t listen to much heavy metal or hardcore punk.  The thingsI never knew I didn’t know.

ps.  Guess what chapter I’m studying now!  Also, I’m in the home stretch.  Just one exam to go.  Thanks for cheering me on!
