My youngest child is amusing herself by trying to eat her hand. Good thing she doesn't have that many teeth. On the positive side, she learned how to say "vitamin" today! I better stop now as I need a certain aura of mystery to maintain my shamanistic role as a psychiatrist. Though it is likely the last vestiges of my dignity were lost when I joined Twitter.
A couple of music links (right click in new tab and you can enjoy them while you peruse the new map!)
The Limousines - "Internet Killed the Video Star" - The kids are disco dancing, they're tired of Rock and Roll. I try to tell them hey that drum machine ain't got no soul.
If you are of a more classical bent - Aaron Copeland* classic, "Fanfare for the Common Man." Copland has a unique sound due to what he left out - the major 3rd.
* Thanks music Doc - It's Copland. Not sure why but spelling was never my strong suit.
One more for Thanksgiving week coming up - Vampire Weekend, "Holiday."

You are the coolest mom on the planet.
Love your blog, even if I don't get all the science (just a music professor, after all). Which brings me to my point: Aaron Copland, not "Copeland," wrote "Fanfare." Given your profession, in which, one might say, you help others enter a sort of "Copeland," it seems an interesting as well as appropriate misspelling.ReplyDelete
And thanks for the blog. How you have the energy to write it with your job and family, I don't know!

I worked for years as a manager at an auto plant. When one of my guys retired, who worked afternoons. I came back to the plant as he left the building, I pulled up to the gate in my car, rolled down all the windows and played this as loud as I could when he passed through the gates for the last time.
Like your brand new site map. VBR HansReplyDelete
Crap - now you have made my site look like a bloody tip! Cleaning up might have to wait until our LONG HOT SUMMER runs out... which hopefully isn't for a full 4 WHOLE MONTHS at least!ReplyDelete
Rob - I'm not *the* coolest by any means, but I like to think I'm moderately cool, at least to them. Until puberty, that is.ReplyDelete
E - Thanks!
Michael - Nothing not to like about that song
Hans - Thanks!
Jamie - Sigh. Enjoy your summer.
