Quote from: Icarus on June 16, 2021, 01:49:26 AMYes indeed Bruce. I do cringe at the sound of my recorded voice. Damn, I had not known that I sound like a poorly educated guttersnipe. Lately I have observed that I actually form words in my brain that are of guttural, or often clipped of proper consonant or vowel sounds. Words like "there' become 'thur". I am not happy about my fall from grace. On the other hand, I will be ninety one this month and I might not really give a damn anymore.

Quote from: Dark Lightning on April 25, 2023, 12:43:08 AMI may've said this here before...when I was in the sixth grade and a reel-to-reel recorder was a novelty, we were offered turns to sing into the mike and listen to the playback. When I offered myself, the teacher told me that I didn't have to, but I insisted. Casey Jones, in case anyone is interested. Horrible flat voice, and I looked around the room at all my classmates in shame. I have prefect pitch and can whistle a tune right on key. I also have a fine countertenor. That same teacher put me in the a cappella part of a school musical, with the girls because of that. Never mind that I was embarrassed about sitting with girls when singing (because of the high pitched voice), I was sitting with girls around me!
