    [quote:b53213ecd2][i:b53213ecd2]The Music Instinct: Science and Song[/i:b53213ecd2] provides a ground-breaking exploration into how and why the human organism and the whole ebb and flow of the cosmos is moved by the undeniable effect of music. This film follows visionary researchers and accomplished musicians to the crossroads of science and culture in search of answers to music's deep mysteries. Researchers and scientists from a variety of fields are using groundbreaking techniques that reveal startling new connections between music and the human mind, the body and the universe. Together with an array of musicians from rock and rap to jazz and classical, they are putting music under the microscope.[/quote:b53213ecd2]

    Dear god but you do have the most irrepressible need to post a tremendous amount of pretentious shite.

    I have nothing more to add, but I really just felt I must make this comment.

    Anto, if I were you I'd stick to arguments and witch hunts.

    It's what you're good at.

    lads, i don't think there is any need to be nasty here. If that is what someone believes, let them.

    recycled alien- are you saying music doesn't have an effect on you? because you might be in the wrong place then.

    An effect on me isn't the same as an effect on the universe.

    Admittedly, that statement implies that I am not a solipsist, and actually believe in the existence of an external universe, distinct from myself.

    Personally, I didn't write anything. That's from a blurb about the documentary which I 'copy & paste' from [url=http://documentaries-plus.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/music-instinct-science-and-song.html]this site[/url]. I thought it best to include some sort of description than to leave it as a nondescript link.

    At the very least it provides a cover for some folks to [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don't_judge_a_book_by_its_cover]judge[/url] this book by.

    Now, what sort of detector do you suspect that this comment set off?

    I knew you weren't that strong, Anto.

    Now, shut up and watch the show. Love it, hate it, whatever. It's still worth a watch.

    "My favourite music blog ever though has to be Sobriquet Magazine www.sobriquetmagazine.com which is mostly about some guys thesis on mid 20th century US literary critique and also reviews of punk bands, it's quite unique and mercifully free of the usually pseudo-media-node-wank-group cock juggling that saturates the Web2.0."
    -- Anto O'Kane of the Tin Pot Operation

    "a bizarrely erudite US punk blog, that also seems to cater for critical theory of mid 20th Century American Literature."
    --Anto O'Kane

    No, not pretentious at all.

    Glass houses.

    Me? I'm an unashamed pretentious WANKER. But I still love myself regularly.

    You know what - feck this and read:
