So I was reading something about writer's bumps (the callus on whichever finger you rest your writing utensil on, usually your middle finger) and came across several people who said theirs have gotten smaller or have even disappeared since leaving school because they don't write as much anymore. Many agreed that the reason for their decrease in hand writing things was due to the computer.
Now, I love computers. I do prefer typing to hand writing most of the time, but reading those replies, all of a sudden, made me incredibly sad. What if at some point down the road, we all just slowly stop hand writing all together? And eventually forget? Why, then hand writing will have gone extinct!
Then that would mean no more use for gel pens, sharpies, markers, and balloint pens. No more nifty mechanical pencils, including those three in one writing utensils that are perfect for taking notes. And those ever novel (but sometimes annoying) shakey mechanical pencils. And of course, what of the classic yellow No. 2 pencil?
And what if it goes further? What if people use computers and digital technology so much that even drawing, sketching, scribbling become a purely digitized thing as well? No more crayons! No more colored pencils! No more pastels! Oh the horror!
And as all this was running through my mind, I couldn't help but look down at my own little writer's bump and appreciate it just a little bit more.
We can all agree that the voice is robotic, and yet we identify it as female.
- Supermarket Monologue VO (Redo)
Just an updated voice over for sexymoustache's excellent Supermarket Monologue. Used a better mic, and had a little more practice. Fun times.

Thought I'd give it a try. Heard Dave Matthews' voice as I read this in my mind. Tried to give off that vibe. I'm probably going to redo this at some point, especially with a better mic.
And in the night,
A young man took flight.
Afraid of what just might,
Be out of sight.
Saw a bit of chipped paint on my desk. Thought it looked like an anglerfish. Someone write a tiny story for it!
