Blow out the candles and make a wish while you can

Goodbye to The Year of the Monkey. Hello to The Year of the Rooster. And to be honest… good riddance to 2016. At least we had the likes of NO BRA aka Susanne Oberbeck able to make an off-kilter year even more off-kilterer.

Into 2017 we go. Things stay thankfully, mercifully, and healthily even more off-kilterer with Mary Ocher.

Fraserhead here. Four years behind the times as usual because I’ve only just found out about the phenomenon of the vocal fry register and how it is terrible for young women in the USA to practice it (but it’s okay for men to do so). Happy to admit that “vocal fry” has never bothered me but “upspeak” does get on my tits. Some reading for your Sunday morning below…

Naomi Wolf: Young women, give up the vocal fry and reclaim your strong female voice
