You know what’s weird? People’s voices. We’re all built with the same blueprints, the same basic genetic material, and the same organs and biological functions. Yet, like fingerprints we all have different voices.
These are the things I think about.
Have you ever really listened to people talking? Not necessarily to what they are saying but how? I found it fascinating in a meeting the other day, judging the tone and timbre of different people’s sounds and realizing how easily you could identify someone out of sight just with a few simple words.
I’m sure this is astounding absolutely no one.
The thing that freaked me out, though, was that, coupled with the fact that we’re all made from the same stuff, is that in a lot of cases we can emulate someone else. So, we obviously have the potential to sound the same, we just don’t for some reason.
Maybe I should stay out of the liquor cabinet.
.: Lisa Whiteman reminds me that I don’t do as much creative with my life as I used to. This is a good thing, and it is inspiring to the point of action. Watch her short film, The Follower, it’s a little bit brilliant, a little bit rock ‘n roll.
