Lil Bub is arguably the Internet’s favorite cat. Just this past week, Lil Bub had the great honor of appearing as a guest on Puppy Bowl X, Animal Planet’s super cute alternative to the Super Bowl. Lil Bub has also starred in her own documentary and published a book.
Not too shabby for a kitty born with several genetic mutations that nearly kept her from adoption in the first place. Luckily for Bub, her owner Mike Bridavsky saw true star potential in this tiny cat and she was able to find a loving home.
Now, Lil Bub shows off more talent in “Star Party Animal”, a music video for the song she wrote with party king Andrew W.K. Check out the video below and party hard!
Absolute pitch, the ability to identify and produce specific pitches without a reference point, has long been studied by musicians, psychologists, and neuroscientists. Some people believe it’s something you have to be born with – or, something that must be cultivated at an early age in order to stick, such as through early life exposure and rigorous training in music.
But now, preliminary research has shown that pitch-perfect comprehension may just be a neural tweak away. In one recent study, scientists used valproate, a chemical compound typically found in mood-stabilizing drugs, on subjects with no musical training, coached them on the basics of matching pitch, and then tested them on the material weeks later.
