The Heart and Craft of Life Writing: Snippets

The Heart and Craft of Life Writing: Snippets | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it

I’m thinking we should write down some of our snippets, our stories.

 

My grandfather did this, and I am so grateful. He lived in such a different time. Because I only knew him as a somewhat sedate older gentleman, it is delightful to know about the time he and his friends played a trick on their teacher by moving his buggy out of the garage and lodging it between two trees.

 

Imagine their consternation when Mr. Brown turned out to be in the buggy they’d just moved, and said, “Thank you boys, I would have had to hitch the horses to move the buggy.”

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.

Songs From A Room ... in London and worldwide, April 2012 and beyond ...

This is the wonderful sister trio of The Staves giving a warm and tender performance at Songs From A Room London,  March 2011. I have been fortunate enough to attend one of the London gigs recently. I only want to whisper this recommendation, as there is very limited capacity, to preserve the intimacy and authenticity of this (shh it's a secret!) secret gig. Truly, one of the best nights of music I have attended in a long while. These guys go from strength to strength, and they do it for love.

with photos of JC Hernandez : #jazz Alan Broadbent Trio live at The Kitano, New York, USA - Jazz Piano

Medley du concert d'Alan Broadbent filmé par votre serviteur au Kitano de NY en octobre 2011 entre 2 cris de rage des indignés de NY. Je me souviens avoir été content d'avoir été plutôt engagé pour filmer que photographier car j'avais une bonne grippe et une élongation musculaire à la jambe (ok .. on s'en fout ;-) . .clip avec quelques photos (conditions désastreuses pour la prise de vue) avant celle que vous pouvez voir ci-dessous sur mon mur prise à Grand Central Station. Pourquoi à Grand Central Station ? Alan était pressé de choper son dernier train pour rentrer en banlieue de NY ou il réside actuellement. Heureusement que Timo Sulc était présent pour m'assister (et surtout porter mon sac !! ;-) car sinon je ne sais pas comment j'aurais fait pour suivre à reculons Alan tout en le photographiant à cause de cette élongation qui m'a pourri l'automne (ok ok .. on s'en fout !! ;-)

He said: “I learned to play the bagpipes at school in Virginia. I’ve always loved them and got lessons from the community pipe band.

Natural high: Is soil an antidepressant? | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
British scientists have identified a particular soil bacterium they claim triggers the same serotonin-triggering neurons in the brain as Prozac.

 

"According to a report by Discover magazine, there was a definite reason for it. Scientists at the University of Bristol in England have identified a particular soil bacterium — Mycobacterium vaccae, to be exact — that just might naturally help alleviate depression.

 

Through experiments on laboratory mice, head neuroscientist Christopher Lowry and his team have evidence that the bacteria triggers the same serotonin-releasing neurons in the brain as Prozac."

'Supermoon' Alert: Biggest Full Moon of 2012 Occurs This Week

'Supermoon' Alert: Biggest Full Moon of 2012 Occurs This Week | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
This Saturday's May full moon will be brighter and larger than any other this year.

 

Skywatchers take note: The biggest full moon of the year is due to arrive this weekend.

 

The moon will officially become full Saturday (May 5) at 11:35 p.m. EDT. And because this month's full moon coincides with the moon's perigee — its closest approach to Earth — it will also be the year's biggest.

 

The moon will swing in 221,802 miles (356,955 kilometers) from our planet, offering skywatchers a spectacular view of an extra-big, extra-bright moon, nicknamed a supermoon.

Norah Jones Acts Her Age

Norah Jones Acts Her Age | Organic Pathos | Scoop.it
A decade after her smash debut, she's in search of another hit, and a younger audience.

 

At age 33, Norah Jones may finally be taking a seat at the kids' table.

 

Ten years ago, her Grammy-sweeping debut was embraced by legions of older listeners. It was the default dinner-party soundtrack of the early '00s. Ms. Jones's early success got her a built-in audience and creative freedom for later releases; she has sold 40 million albums in her career. But it also put the musically adventurous singer on the wrong side of a generation gap.

 

"She wants fans her own age," says Zach Hochkeppel, senior vice president of marketing at EMI Music and a member of the singer's Blue Note Records team from the start. Older audiences can be stodgy. "To maintain this über-adult fan base is really difficult. You have to do the same record over and over, or come up with stunts," such as standards collections or duets albums.
