First and foremost, the story is completely fictional. Think about it for two seconds: the lady gets in everyone’s face on the airplane EXCEPT the guy who antagonizes her, to whom she writes a perfectly well-thought-out and easily-photographable note? Wouldn’t 7A be a window seat, and in that…
"I’m not taking Diane’s side here. She behaved atrociously and she does not exist."
Guys, I sort of want to stop talking with so much vocal fry. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it (though I do love this INSANE CBS video on it lol), but I do sound very creaky and froggy most of the time when I hear myself recorded. I know it’s (allegedly) bad for your vocal cords, and as someone with constant allergies anyway…well, it all seems like a bad combo.
Here’s the thing: my entire speaking voice is basically vocal fry. I have vocal fry in every sentence I say. In order to not have vocal fry, I would have to adopt a substantially different mode of speaking. It would also mean I would be speaking in (what is to me) a noticeably higher voice. Is that…a thing a person can pull off? Do people do that? Is it too weird and awkward to try to actively change the way you speak? Does anyone else notice this about themselves? Am I thinking about this too much?
Edit: Just to be clear, I am not worried about the state of my vocal cords so much as the sound and quality of my voice, but thanks for the advice to see a “professional” doctor, Jacob! Helpful stuff.
Add this to my growing list of reasons why the NYPD scares me. Kaleif Browder was 16-years-old when he was accused of robbery by someone he had never met. Unable to post bail, he and his family maintained his innocence for three years while he suffered the brutal conditions of Rikers Island awaiting trial. Earlier this year he was released without so much as an apology from the city.
We’re sorry it’s been a while, butt Nate has been so crazy busy writing for the brand spanking new Pete Holmes Show, that we got a little behind on Butt Talks. We’ll be recording a buttload over the Spanksgiving break, and get back to our regular schedule as soon ass possible.
For now, enjoy an all-new episode with Adam and hilariass comedian Halle Kiefer (aka Smelly Beef-fart) talking bun-on-bun about butts!
In the inaugural episode of Cool School, Tyler and Mikala discuss the rampant sexuality of improv comedy before going under the covers with comedian Halle Kiefer (one of Brooklyn’s funniest!) about American Horror Story: Coven and our national obsession with witches. Then they check in with mutual best friend and muse Christina Boucher, who supplies a questionably adequate Bill Nighy impression.
I think I literally made up every ostensibly factual piece of information I discuss in this episode, but listen to it anyway!
Born and raised just outside Des Moines, Iowa, Warren developed an interest in compatibility when he was very young. Although his parents’ marriage lasted seventy years, Warren was frustrated by their inability to communicate with each other due to the differences in their intelligence and…
