RE: What Did You Learn Today?
That there is such a thing as Ambrosian chants, which, albeit similar to the Gregorian ones (which I love), are still somewhat different

"Ambrosian chant (also known as Milanese chant) is the liturgical plainchant repertory of the Ambrosian rite of the Roman Catholic Church, related to but distinct from Gregorian chant. It is primarily associated with the Archdiocese of Milan, and named after St. Ambrose much as Gregorian chant is named after Gregory the Great. It is the only surviving plainchant tradition besides the Gregorian to maintain the official sanction of the Roman Catholic Church. Stylistically, the Ambrosian chant repertoire is not generally as musically uniform as the Gregorian. Ambrosian chants are more varied in length, ambitus, and structure."





The tiny single-voice bit at 1:15 is among the most beautiful things I've ever heard. There is another one I love even more, but I couldn't find a good interpretation on youtube.

RE: What Did You Learn Today?
Today I learned that there are two conjoined muscles which make up the upper and lower lips, respectively. Meaning, the right and left sides of your lips and different muscles. I suppose I should have guessed that, because I already knew that the face forms from the sides; inward, while in the womb. (That is why you have an indentation on your upper-lip; beneath the septum) But I had no idea that the muscles themselves would be seperate.

So basically, if you split your lip in half (as some people do their tongues), you could move both halves individually. Blink

Got my repiercing done today, by the way. Big Grin I'm perfectly symetrical.

It's easy, actually. The secret is that his stuff isn't especially "yummy" at all. He just adds lots of mind-altering substances to it. Thumbsup

That would be strange and fascinating to see. Why has no one done this?!

Well shit. You know damn well you're welcome here any time. Just give me a days notice to freshen the sheets in the spare room.
