Auditory Allusion

Nope, it's not a quote from either of our presidential candidates. It's something I've never heard before.

Listen to the included clip a few times in a row. It's what's called a Shepards Tone. "A tone that continually ascends or descends in pitch, yet which ultimately seems to get no higher or lower."

Weird and awesome at the same time.

Speaking of which, I'll be in Indiana on Wednesday. We land at 9:40 am and purchase a sampling the best tamales in the world shortly thereafter.
