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.

Windows Live Messenger Officially Converted to Skype

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

You can continue to make audio and video calls with your contacts on Skype and Facebook and send IMs for free—your contacts will come with you when you update to Skype and sign in with your Microsoft account.

Find out more about Skype

For information about moving from Messenger to Skype, visit the About Skype page.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

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.
Think of ho…
