I love it that there are more areas of the brain that "light up" on an EEG during engagement with music than almost any other activity.  WOOT!

Don't it make you wanna shout?

I always liked Who's Next better,


No comparison of course...

Who are You?  One of my favorite album covers.  Not to be taken away...which of course he was, shortly after

Hey, Trojanhorse. You doing alright out west?

"Still" burning not far from my place believe it or not--but it appears to be mostly moving away from us now.  We had a couple of days respite from the smoke, but it was pretty bad again yesterday.

more advanced students who spend many hours a day practicing (we're talking career oriented) experience a deterioration of math skills.

Maybe by the time they're getting career oriented, it becomes a matter of how much sheer time is diverted from math skills to musical ones, or maybe there's a loss of interest in further developing the math.  Just a thought.

Nytemps...I'm sure there is something to that idea.  There is only so much a person can focus on and not many people can truly excel in more than one area. 

Trojanhorse....Here's hoping you get many more hits...and soon.  California is a beautiful state, seems something for everyone.  But when disaster strikes....

No problem. You wouldn't be the first.

Hope more fresh air is headed your way.

Lyrics

Title: Lives In The Balance (Jackson Browne)

I've been waiting for something to happen
For a week or a month or a year
With the blood in the ink of the headlines
And the sound of the crowd in my ear
You might ask what it takes to remember
When you know that youve seen it before
Where a government lies to a people
And a country is drifting to war

And theres a shadow on the faces
Of the men who send the guns
To the wars that are fought in places
Where their business interest runs

On the radio talk shows and the t.v.
You hear one thing again and again
How the u.s.a. stands for freedom
And we come to the aid of a friend
But who are the ones that we call our friends--
These governments killing their own?
Or the people who finally cant take any more
And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone
There are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire

Theres a shadow on the faces
Of the men who fan the flames
Of the wars that are fought in places
Where we cant even say the names

They sell us the president the same way
They sell us our clothes and our cars
They sell us every thing from youth to religion
The same time they sell us our wars
I want to know who the men in the shadows are
I want to hear somebody asking them why
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
But theyre never the ones to fight or to die
 
And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire

..............................
.......................

Steppenwolf

(Monster)
Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And 'til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our  homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The blue and grey they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has it's share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it's protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it's a monster and will not obey

(Suicide)
The spirit was freedom and justice
And it's keepers seem generous and kind
It's leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won't pay it no mind
'Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke
They babble about law and order
But it's all just an echo of what they've been told
Yeah, there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin'

Our cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin' the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can't understand
We don't know how to mind our own business
'Cause the whole worlds got to be just like us
Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who's the winner
We can't pay the cost
'Cause there's a monster on the loose
It's got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watching

(America)
America where are you now?
Don't you care about your sons and daughters?
Don't you know we need you now
We can't fight alone against the monster
