The worst part about liking classical music is when you forget the name of a piece and you can’t google the lyrics because there are none

It’s day three of 2014 and I’m not feeling any less guilty about not posting some thoughts I have, so I guess that’s good enough reason to write them down and send them to you.

I guess a part of me wants to lay out some predictions for the culture-at-large, and wouldn’t that feel great for a…

Music to me has I guess only really been my life since around 10th grade. I’m a late bloomer but it helped shape who I am. It’s given me a voice, a personality, an identity, a future, and my only passion in life. Being on stage in front of friends, strangers, or even nobody is the most blissful…

ooh sh*t.

Ever wonder just why some music makes you feel so good? Virginia Hughes reports on some super-interesting new neuroscience research by Valorie Salimpoor at her National Geographic blog: Only Human
There’s quite a bit of nitty-gritty brain science at play here, but here’s the highlights:
The Big Questions: The major mystery in the biology of music is “why?” How do mere vibrations in the air bring on such deep emotional responses? Did this have any influence on our evolution, or is it just a side effect of the myriad of tweaks and evolutionary forces that made us human?
What They Found: When test subjects listened to songs they had never heard before and asked whether they wanted to buy them, they engaged brain pathways involved in reward, pleasure, memory, prediction and judgment. When we hear new music, we appear to call upon “templates” for what we like in our memory. Then regions involved in prediction and judgment decide how much it fits our expectations, and searches for a “Goldilocks zone” of novelty and familiarity. If it fits, then we get a rush of pleasure in the brain’s reward pathway.
What Questions Remain: Why do people with similar exposures have such different tastes? How similar and different can things be before they become pleasurable/not pleasurable? 
New music is a series of memory, prediction, judgment and pleasure. It’s a whole-brain activity, and it’s a uniquely and wonderfully human experience.
I highly recommend checking out Ginny’s full article. This is fascinating stuff. There will be an episode of It’s Okay To Be Smart all about music and evolution in the near future. Stay tuned!

Panic! At The Disco Feat. Fun. - C’mon

omfg I did it I DID IT and I am so proud I am going to cry

I am sorry it’s so freaking long. I am sorry but I am not sorry. I am proud. HA! Didn’t I mention you’re about to get A LOT Percy Jackson? Here it is:D

the end.

Brandi Carlile, Hard Way Home

Oooh
I sometimes lose my faith in luck
I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up
I just count the rain
Wearing the floor through the boards again
I wish I could find a soul to steal
I could be the engine, you could be the wheel
When we’re driving home, I never have to worry about being alone

[CHORUS:]
Oooh, follow my tracks
See all the times I should have turned back
Oooh, I wept alone
I know what it means to be on my own
Oooh, the things I have known
Looks like I’m taking the hard way home
Oooh, the seeds I’ve sown
Taking the hard way home
Taking the hard way home

I never did learn how to follow the rules
I never was good at sleeping while the moon was full
I just lie and burn
Wreck my mind while the planet turns
I sometimes wish I could start again
I’d try and do the right things every now and then
I’d step in line
That’s what I would do if I could turn back time …
