On 9th March 2008, historians have found what they believe is the first recording of a human voice. Predating Thomas Edison’s first phonograph recording of 1877. The “phonautograph”, created by etching soot-covered paper by Parisian inventor Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville, was played by US scientists using a “virtual stylus” to read the lines. The recording was initially believed to be the voice of a woman or adolescent, but further research in 2009 suggested the playback speed had been too high and that it was actually the voice of Scott himself. This is the original recording.
EVERYONE I HAVE OFFICIALLY DIED OKAY SO i was in walmart singing softly to the “gaston” song from beauty and the beast so i did the whole “when i was a lad i ate four dozen eggs every morning to help me get large and now that i’m grown i eat five dozen eggs so i’m roughly the size of a barge” and this guy next to me covered in tattoos and piercing and a massive mohawk adds on quietly under his breath “no one fights like gaston”
but they remember everything. They forget appointments and anniversaries, but remember what you wore, how you smelled, on your first date… They remember every story you’ve ever told them - like ever, but forget what you’ve just said. They don’t remember to water the plants or take out the trash, but they don’t forget how to make you laugh.
Writers are forgetful because they’re busy remembering the important things.
