@email@example.com … why am I hearing about this through twtxt? No mention about this anywhere in the news. 🤔
@firstname.lastname@example.org Those are some really, really tiny frogs. 😳
@email@example.com What the heck? Is that a tiny tree or are those super large headphones?!
@firstname.lastname@example.org That second video really was a bit soulcrushing. 😳 At first I thought it was part of the act. Great sense of humour, though! 😂
@email@example.com Awww! 😍
@firstname.lastname@example.org Good question, I don’t have an answer. 🤔 When you think about it, we have made remarkably little progress in that area, haven’t we? GPG is ancient and nothing viable came after it … SSL could help in theory (like, pin the SSL cert of your banking web site), but that’s also a very old technique … I don’t really see new approaches to these problems. 🤔
Maybe one answer could be: Tech people rarely get phished, because they are smart enough to avoid these traps, so they don’t perceive this as an issue in the first place. Hence nobody works on it.
PSA: If you happen to have bottles like these, don’t throw them away. When they’re empty, you can (often) clean them and fill ’em up with water instead. Now you can spray your face or your arms with a very fine fog of water. Works wonders when it’s hot, it’s basically artificial sweat. Instant cooling! 🥵
@email@example.com I honestly have no idea what that is. 😅
The best one can do is to enjoy the morning hours. The day started with 25°C here.
@firstname.lastname@example.org It might look boring, but an MRI could tell us a lot about what’s going on inside the mouth and at the back of the tongue. That’s where overtone selection/amplification happens, which plays a major role, especially in these kinds of crazy vocals. Super low growls or “demonic” voices or whatever, they all boil down to overtone selection that our brain isn’t used to, so we’re perceiving them as weird and baffling. A good example might be this, I guess: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JU4dDsUc5p0
33°C outside, 27°C inside. Bah!
@email@example.com Haha, yeah, no way. Before Covid, I used to think that a laryngoscopy is probably not that bad … but now that I know how it feels to have stuff shoved up my nose, even just a short distance – hell no. 😅
There’s another way to have a look at the vocal tract, which is through the mouth, but you can’t see as many details:
And then there’s also the option to use an MRI, but I don’t know this ever being done on a metal vocalist:
I love this subject, it’s so fascinating. 😀
@firstname.lastname@example.org Damn! 🤔
Fascinating. Confirms most things that we already knew about metal vocals, but also raises some new questions. 😀 I hope they’ll do more of that, especially with different vocalists.
Also looking forward to hearing Mark’s Comments. (Wait another 36 hours? Wat?)
@email@example.com Yes, that’s webdump. It has a couple of drawbacks because no code runs on the server (except for rsync), but it works great for my purposes. 👌 (I work as a sysadmin, which is annoying enough 😅, so I try hard to keep the maintenance burden of my private stuff as low as possible. No server-side code like PHP, Python, or even the Go binaries of Yarn.social – just serve HTML files. Saves me a lot of headache.)
The actual HTML files are created by html-index, though.
How to fail at avoiding trash:
Pieces of styrofoam – but since our garbage collection service won’t accept them just like that, they have to be put inside of plastic bags.
@firstname.lastname@example.org I wish this was real! 😂
@email@example.com Ha, that’s impressive. 😁 I’m sure glad he dropped that one ball, so he’s still human. 😅
@firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll mark that article to read later – in case I’m feeling masochistic. 😅
Since the heat is melting my brain, I did basically nothing but watch music videos today … 🥴 🥵
@email@example.com Wanna trade places? 😅 🥵
@firstname.lastname@example.org Haha, I didn’t notice those audio issues – because I still use a compressor by default. 🥴 (That’s another thing where PulseAudio is useful.)
@email@example.com Why? What are your reasons? (I feel the same, don’t worry, just curious. 😂)
@firstname.lastname@example.org thx! Tja, damals™, als Gopher noch in den Browsern integriert war, war die Welt noch besser. 😅 Es stimmt schon, der Bruch nervt ein bisschen. Ich nehm’
