Not a tribute to Whitney Houston

I promised myself I wouldn’t succumb to all the Whitney Houston hysteria but saw two things I couldn’t resist.

1. Apparently, Sony and iTunes raised the price of Whitney Houston’s music after the news broke that she died. Is it a scumbag move to profit on someone’s death? Yes, but the thing that stuck out about this story most to me was just how smart a business decision it could’ve been. They’ve since returned the price to normal…worth a shot, I guess.

2. Here’s her isolated vocal track from “How Will I Know?” Can you believe she could really sing like this? I’m definitely going to trash my vocal chords in the shower trying to do this.
