And if you look you can also see his public wish list. A lot of stuff about substance abuse on there.

Since he is a teetotaler I imagine its for sponsoring someone... an idea that I find scary.

Unsure if "who tooted" was a joke or not, upon googling the phrase I saw the video for the game. One of the kids playing wore a WFMU tee-shirt. Difficult to say if the game will be the next "Candyland".

There have been a whole batch or NPR shows on vocal fry, upspeak and other new styles of speaking that a lot of people find highly annoying. Me, I'm OK with both, as long as they dont use the word 'impact' as a verb.

  10:21am JakeGould:

@Ken: So I will be doing laundry, I think? Then enjoy a bit of sun, maybe? I dunno. But you know, upspeak and uptalk? I think they are both casual ways of saying, high rising terminal? “The origins of HRT remain uncertain. Anecdotal evidence places the conception of the American English variety on the West Coast – anywhere from Southern California to the Pacific Northwest.”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21am Marcel M:

@Jake: All of those could have been questions!
  10:22am Cecile:

Henry, a lot of flight training schools are in the south. I also asked a young Minnesotan USAF pilot trainee if it was true every pilot learned a southern accent there and he laughed and said yeah. Sort of like all anchors with the Midwestern accent

Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 10:25am Ken From Hyde Park:

Is it the opposite of how Eeyore talks? The pitch drops lower in a sorrowful way.
  10:28am Sam:

Upspeak comes from a either a desire to avoid conflict or a lack of confidence, you don't want to sound too firm or too sure; by making it sound like a question you're indicating that what you're saying is just your opinion and others could disagree. You even see it when a young professional is making a big presentation, everything sounds kind of like a question and he's looking around for signs everyone's on board with where he's going. Very similar is saying "like" every other word, it's a way of hedging, not being too assertive.
Avatar Ken's Marathon 2024 Swag For Life Member 10:28am Webhamster Henry:

At any rate, an all vocal show is a welcome addition to the schedule.

There's an ugly history of language policing and people being ridiculed for the way they talked, or banned from speaking their native language or dialect, so even though it's tempting to want to tell people not to speak certain ways, it seems fundamentally wrong.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:11am Parq:

Following the discussion on upspeak (didn't know there was a name for it) with interest. Yes, it drives me crazy too. I've also noted the distinction between the low-pitched vocal fry, and its feathery high-pitched cousin, which Lake Bell calls the sexy baby. The thing I haven't found anybody noting is the constant mangling of vowels. It's not sexy baby, for instance, it's sixy beebee. And the maddeningly overused "Amazing" is more and more often rendered as "imeezing".

@Parq: Seriously. What you said about YouTube and your friend watching the video is funny. Growing up in Brooklyn and coming from an immigrant family I have no Brooklyn accent; although I have some accent but that is another story. Anyway, I was constantly harassed as a kid from other kids and even teachers for “Not talking right.”
  11:25am MarieD:

Hey there! I thought the Terri Gross show did not discuss the history of vocal fry and ____. Not sure what kind of historical data could be used--scholarly discussions, films, radio, but it seems to me that, within the US, at least, these are relatively new phenomena. Or, like, did they say that and did I like totally miss it...? And if they are totally new then they would be totally socially caused and not totally socially sanctioned, right? Oh, and hey, anything associated with youth and sexiness would tend to become popular, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am maestroso:

Totally lost the web (mp3) stream...
  11:26am JakeGould:

@Parq: Because of my supposedly “non-normal” accent the school decided I should be in a “speech class.” Only three kids in that class: A Puerto Rican boy with crossed eyes and some palsy, a cute deaf girl with pigtails and me… A white blonde haired blue eyed kid of immigrants. And the only reason the only African-American kid in the class who I usually got lumped in with wasn’t in the class? He “spoke normal.”

What's really confounding is how this accent has become a national one. When my daughter started college in '08, by the time she was there a month, she had made friends with young women from Texas, Massachusetts and the middle Atlantic, among other locales. All of them spoke in that accent exactly.

MarieD - The interesting thing to me about the Fresh Air discussion on Vocal Fry was that it is now a generational thing - younger people seem to think that Vocal Fry makes you sound SMART, or so the linguists on that show argued.
  11:31am JakeGould:

Stream works on my iPhone from the app. But will say the stereo stream seemed to taking longer to buffer than normal. But that could just be my 4G LET connection.

Seems all the covers of "Warm Leatherette" miss the point of the irony in the original.

That's not The Normal, that sounds like The PARAnormal.

Get it? Get it? Get it?

@Ken As any Shipping Forecast fan can tell you, it's "Sailing By", not "Sailing On"

@Ken: Those animated WFMU letters on the playlkist… Were they made just for WFMU? Or do they come from some site.
