Second Supper Issue 148, The Sound Issue 

second-supper-148-cover Do you ever take for granted the ability of being able to hear? If this statement rings true at all (or you want a great read) I highly suggest that you take a look at this issue of the Second Supper. Briana Rupel and Adam Bissen have some very good articles in this issue that shouldn’t be missed. Adam Bissen decided that he would take a day where he would not hear anything. He put earplugs in his ear and had noise canceling headphones on all day. The result is very surprising and interesting when Bissen finds out what it’s like to have no sense of hearing. Briana Rupel has a great story about Wendy Arndt who became deaf when she was just one year old. It hits home with Bri because they are friends. Wendy is a very talented individual who plans on doing big things, and was actually named Miss Deaf Wisconsin in 2008. She is a very special individual because she transcends the bridge between the hearing and non-hearing world (read the article to find out why).

Brett Emerson does one of the most bold things that I have ever heard. He takes his iPod out of the mix (doesn’t use it, only in certain cases), listens to talk radio in the car and only listens to albums for reviewing purposes (but he “acknowledges reviewing as a slippery slope”). I honestly don’t know what I would do if I pretty much took all of my favorite music out of my life. I wouldn’t be the same person, I can definitely tell you that much.

You will also find, of course, the usual assortment of regular articles that you have grown to know and love. Do yourself a favor and give yourself a healthy portion of Second Supper.
