makes me sound like a knob

Oh, this sounds like fun. Thanks for tagging me, @dont-stop-believin-in-klaine

Five things you’ll find in my bag:

  • Wallet
  • Keys
  • Cellphone
  • Umbrella
  • Dozens of receipts that I randomly stuff into my bag and am always too lazy to throw away

Five things in my bedroom:

  • My gallery wall
  • A keyboard
  • Clothes scattered on the floor
  • A dresser that I refurbished myself (well, I painted it and replaced the knobs, but that counts, right?)
  • My big comfy bed

Five things I’ve wanted to do in life:

  • Live in a big city
  • Live abroad
  • Make a big roadtrip
  • Publish a scientific article in a really good journal
  • Fall in love? Or, like, being loved back? I know that’s a lot to ask…

Five things that make me happy:

  • Music
  • Darren
  • Photography
  • Good food
  • Science (at least most of the time)

Five things I’m currently into:

  • The Dear Evan Hansen OBCR
  • Long Exposure Photography (still trying to get the hang of it)
  • This Is Us
  • US politics (way too invested in that. to an unhealthy degree)
  • making smoothies

Five things on my to-do list:

  • Finishing writing the paper I’m currently working on
  • Finding a therapist (oh boy)
  • Planning a trip to a planetarium with my colleagues next week
  • Booking a hotel for a Berlin trip in a few weeks
  • Registrating for a conference in Hungary in June

Five things people may not know about me:

  • I have a weird thing with ears. Like, I can’t really touch my own ears or watch anyone else touch theirs. Idk, I just think they’re kinda gross? It’s weird, I know. 
  • I’m the baby of my family. My sisters are 8 and 10 years older.
  • I’m the only female PhD student in the Theoretical Physics department at my university.
  • I grew up in a very small town and I hated it.
  • I probably don’t want kids. I mean, things might still change. But right now I’m like: Nah, I’m good.

Wow, that took longer than I thought. But it was fun!

Tagging: @vampireisabitstrong, @ipwarn, @lilyvandersteen, @boroniaserrulata and whoever else wants to do it!

“For Tomorrow Never Knows John said to me he wanted his voice to sound like the Dalai Lama chanting from a hilltop, and I said, ‘It’s a bit expensive, going to Tibet. Can we make do with it here?’ I knew perfectly well that ordinary echo or reverb wouldn’t work, because it would just put a very distant voice on. We needed to have something a bit weird and metallic…

A Leslie speaker is a rotating speaker, a Hammond console, and the speed at which it rotates can be varied according to a knob on the control. By putting his voice through that and then recoding it again, you got a kind of intermittent vibrato effect, which is what we hear on Tomorrow Never Knows. I don’t think anyone had done that before. It was quite a revolutionary track for Revolver.”
