The G. Robert Vincent Voice Library is a collection of over 40,000 hours of spoken word recordings, dating back to 1888. The collection includes the voices of over 100,000 persons from all walks of life. George Robert Vincent was a pioneer in the field of sound recording. Among other things he helped to start the Armed Forces Radio Service in 1943. He donated his collection of over 8,000 voice recordings to the Libraries of Michigan State University in 1962.

I had no idea that last year Norfolk, Virginia had a Mermaids on Parade festivity. Sort of like the cows, Lindborg's dala horses, and the WDC Party Animals. Norfolk, Virginia decided to take a non four-legged animal approach and had mermaids. Here is a listing of some "im-moo-tators" of the cow parade idea. I love public art and think these are all great.

While I was searching for "can't recall what now" on Wikipedia I ended up finding this interesting list of cognitive biases.

Do you ever wonder about life. You know why am I here, why are things the way they are, yadda, yadda, yadda. If you do and you don't like the answers you are giving yourself go to Ask Philosphers.

Have a great weekend.
