Courtesy of the artist For a time during the '60s and '70s, it was not uncommon to hear pop musicians sing about Native American issues. There are plenty of great stories in the Native North America, Vol. 1 set, but maybe the most compelling is about the Algonquin-Mohawk musician Willy Mitchell.

Sketchy Friends Dance 2 Gorillaz, James Murphy, Andre 3000, 'DoYaThing' - Review - NME Blogs Converse always manage to pull it out of the bag with their ‘Three Artists, One Song’ collaborations (remember Casablancas/ Pharrell/Santogold’s ‘My Drive Thru’?). ‘DoYaThing’ is no exception. Damon – in his “2-D” voice that suggests both listless ennui and schoolboy mischief, sings: "I’m a pale imitator of a boy in the sky." Enter, stage left, a falsetto James Murphy singing the hook. An organ parps with 60s Exotica playfulness and then, in an effect which piles on the plinky-plonky vibe, Murphy sings like he’s caught mid-way between channeling his inner Austin Powers and Alexis from Hot Chip. “Groovy, baby” indeed.

Vibrations, Harmonics, Resonance, Waves and Reality the Musical Scale The musical scale is not an accident. It is a natural consequence of pure mathematics and nature. It's more proper to say it was discovered - not invented. This is one reason why music can be seen as the true universal language. Music is vibrational physics and math that is sensed almost as a language be the ear/brain combination. The scale we use divides the octave based on the harmonic series into 12 notes, the 12th being the same note an octave higher than the first. Spheres of Sound: Illustrated sequence of wave vibrations on the harmonic diagonal (from ) The tone C is the whole, a ratio of 1:1, therefore C encloses the total space. An expansion goes away from the diagonal, while a contraction moves toward a diagonal.

sharpie liquid pencil aug 10, 2010 sharpie liquid pencil sharpie has just unveiled their new ‘liquid pencil’. the pencil uses liquid graphite ‘ink’ to write like a pen, erase like a pencil, and eventually dry like a permanent marker. once written, you have three days to think about the validity and weight of your words. during this period you can erase it just like pencil marks. after the three days is up, the pencil lines will turn to ink and remain inscribed forever. according to the sharpie blog the new liquid pencil will be in stores from next month, september 2010. via wired ridhika naidoo I designboom The Sacred Geometry Of Music The Sacred Geometry Of Music by Andrew Lorimer Music uses the laws of vibration to manifest aurally what exists at the center of everything. Into our reality springs a non-visual harmonic law that is universal. The notes and intervals of music speak directly to the chakra centers and causes them to vibrate in harmony to the vibration of a string or vocal chords, speakers moving through the air, or the sound of someone’s lips making a farting noise through a metal tube. Clock Harmonisphere The mathematics of the harmonisphere are amazing. When we measure the same chords on the harmonisphere, the seven chords have the same mirrored combinations as the piano:
If Everyone Knew | 5 facts that everyone should know. The Just-World Fallacy & You Are Not So Smart The Misconception: People who are losing at the game of life must have done something to deserve it. The Truth: The beneficiaries of good fortune often do nothing to earn it, and bad people often get away with their actions without consequences. A woman goes out to a club wearing stilettos and a miniskirt with no underwear. Is she to blame in some way? People often say yes to all three in studies asking similar questions after presenting similar scenarios. It is common in fiction for the bad guys to lose and the good guys to win. More specifically, this bias is a lens through which you tend to see the world, and seeing things in this way often leads to a predictable reaction to horrible misfortune like homelessness or drug addiction – believing the people stuck in horrible situations must have done something to deserve it. The key word there is deserve. In his study, when asked to describe the woman getting shocked, many of the observers devalued her. This, of course, is not always true.
