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.
god fucking dammit
this is incredible
Bob Dylan made beautiful words as well as melodies. In his opinion, “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.”
Treat every day as a space for doing what you love. Eg. Trolling the internet for charts! I know reddit can be a scary place, but I do recommend exploring the depths of r/Charts, r/DataIsBeautiful, r/Infographics, and of course r/QuotesPorn!

“After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world.” – Oscar Wilde
Thanks to likethatofarainbow for the quote! Oscar Wilde was definitely a character, and if anyone were to be given the opportunity to hang out with him (in the afterlife… obviously) I’m sure they would appreciate this guide to rely upon.
<I am an artist. You are an artist. If we two are creators of art so is everyone and everything else. The artistic saga of I has effected absolutely nobody except for maybe a few; or how everything is art; or how nothing is art.>
Preface to Part Three-hundred and Thirty-eight
Formerly to this part of The Lives of the Artists everyone became an artist consequently making all artists unknown. Without the intentions and influences of Jacklyn Simbayou, John Smith, Mick Gee, Malachi Constant, Hector Garrens, Jade Smith, Mack the Knife, Georgio Vasari*, Daniel Waldo, Baskerville Semibold, Desdemona Okonski, Kimmy Dawson, Marty “Fukin-Mar” Barreras, Philipino Lippi, Theodore Maskovich, Purple Tuna Dolphin, Ben Decker, all the fools from the Juice box Chiller’s residence and their surrogate mother, Steve McSterverson, Sara Griswald, Jasmine Smith, Byron Ligon, Andrew Soren, Anthony Beale, Nina Kierkegard, Tierney McGarretton, Midgy, Psych Smith, Shellburrito Stookle, all the Pollacks from cell block sixteen except for frougal, and thousands of the unknowns, etc. etc. Without the works of these listed artists art would not be what it is today because the world would not be what it is today, if these folks did not inhabit it. Hell Ben Decker never did an artistic thing in his life, except for be alive.
