Why Did You Wander? - 2/4/2017

Chris Thile, Aoife O'Donovan, Chris Eldridge, Brittany Haas, Paul Kowert, Tim Russell, and Fred Newman perform "Why Did You Wander?" on our February 4, 201
donhornsby's insight:
I'm really enjoying A Prairie Home Companion this season. As a longtime fan, I have not been tuning in the past few years. And the times that I did hear it, the show was a far cry to what it was many years ago. In a near genius move, Garrison Keillor selected Chris Thile to succeed him as host - and he is knocking it out of the park. The show has returned to 'must listen' status each week. Here's a clip from last week...

John Lennon: The Last Interview

John Lennon: The Last Interview | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
Three days before he died, John Lennon talked with 'Rolling Stone' for nine hours. For the first time, we present this extraordinary interview
donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): The whole universe is a wheel, right? Wheels going round and round. They're my own wheels, mainly, but, you know, watching meself is like watching everybody else. And I watch meself through my child too. The thing about the child is . . . it's still hard. I'm not the greatest dad on Earth, I'm doing me best. But I'm a very irritable guy, and I get depressed. I'm up and down, up and down, and he's had to deal with that too – withdrawing from him and then giving, and withdrawing and giving.

The Brain Responds To Music The Same Way As Eating

The Brain Responds To Music The Same Way As Eating | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it

The study volunteers chose a wide range of music – from classical and jazz to punk, tango and even bagpipes. The most popular were Barber's Adagio for Strings, the second movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and Debussy's Claire de Lune.


Since they already knew the musical pieces they listened to, it wasn't possible to tell whether the anticipation reaction came from memory or the natural feel people develop for how music unfolds, Zatorre said. That question is under study, too.

Dr. Gottfried Schlaug, an expert on music and the brain at Harvard Medical School, called the study "remarkable" for the combination of techniques it used.

 

While experts had indirect indications that music taps into the dopamine system, he said, the new work "really nails it."

 

Music isn't the only cultural experience that affects the brain's reward circuitry. Other researchers recently showed a link when people studied artwork.

A flashback to when John Paul White and Joy Williams were getting along as The Civil Wars. I wish that they were able to get it together again.
