Music Is...

…the key to the lock in the gate of genius.

Don’t believe me? The next time you hear a song, I want you to focus on the thoughts that run through your mind when you listen to that song. Surely you’ll think of the lyrics; seeing the events play out in the form of the other dimension we know as imagination. You’ll also probably think of at least one color—that may or may not gateway (notice the use of gate?) into the thoughts of other colors—and you’ll probably also think of fundamental numbers. The more complex minds out there will think of both, and the even more complex of them will combine them into groups like a probability experiment. Lastly, you’ll almost surely reflect on an event in your life… one where this song may have been playing… where you most associate this song with a similar event in your own life… or perhaps it will just trigger a memory that is completely unassociated in any form other than the unexplained way in which tones and octaves play with your mind.

While the nose has been associated most closely with the brain (sense of smell is often considered one of the most powerful), the ears (ignoring the eardrum) are the most direct line to the brain. In fact, vibrations in your ear (sound) carry on well past the eardrum and into the skull, and even the brain. Music itself captivates everyone; but science has proven that music is the closest we can come to perfection by definition. Beat, key, tone, scale… music transcends perception. Johan Sebastian-Bach once said that “one instrument, one section – without one, the masterpiece does not exist”, and while the average person could take no notice, those who devote themselves to their craft know that this is true.

Music is powerful… incredibly powerful. For those of you who believe in religion (Catholicism, Christianity, Judaism, others I’m sure), the angels in Heaven before mankind’s creation… played music. Music presents itself in rituals – tribal, social, political, all the way to a tool to help study, motivate, prepare……..


So to honor this genius perfection (and with the genius idea from fellow blogger Enigma & reviewing this slowing in blogging)… I’ll begin doing Track of the Day here on the blog.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Mock Royal Rumble 2017

I do not have any insider knowledge about surprise entrants into the Royal Rumble. As of me writing this, I believe there are only 22 confirmed participants for the Rumble. I also do not have any insider information about the order of the entrants, or the winner. I am just putting together a mock I think makes sense + what I would personally like to see accomplished in the match. 1. Sami Zayn - Zayn will be the Iron Man in this year's Rumble, building onto his Daniel Bryan-esque push of late with Stephanie making his life more difficult than it has to be for no apparent reason. 2. Chris Jericho - Iron Man #2. I expect both of these guys to go the distance in this year's Rumble, and Jericho's as good as any for spurts of offense in a long match. 3. Big E - We have to add some size early to immediately slow down Zayn & Jericho. In recent years, the first 10 spots in the Rumble have entered and been eliminated quickly, and we haven't seen the ring fill up unt

Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016

Before we begin, these are strictly my opinion for what entertains me. I would love to hear anyone's opinion on my list, along with what their list is for the 2016 calendar year. I am not focusing strictly on the WWE, and this list will not be strictly singles matches. I also have not watched every match from every company, so if I'm missing something you believe is clear cut, there may be a chance that I did not see the match. Top 10 Wrestling Matches of 2016 2016 was a very incredible year for professional wrestling, in mainstream promotions like WWE and New Japan Pro Wrestling, to independent promotions like EVOLVE and Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. British professional wrestling promotions Revolution Pro Wrestling and newly formed What Culture Pro Wrestling have been a refreshing spark in the European scene and have since seen prominence in WWE's Cruiserweight Classic (CWC) and upcoming United Kingdom Championship Tournament. See the list after the break.
