Music Scholars Research Obvious

…”Then along came the Institute of Neurosciences in California, with a mighty investigation into why it was that music from different countries sounded, er, different.”

Also, did you see that Bernie Mac died? Jimminy Crickets.  Although I did chuckle when I saw that the Times described him as “Mr. Mac.”  I think he would have liked that.

Also, WTF????  I don’t want to sound all Pollyanna, but it blows my mind that I open my little IHT window yesterday and read about some shots fired, and less than 24 hours later I open the same window and read “1,500 Reported Killed.”  It makes me tremble.

  1. “Mr. Mac” sounds funny, but it’s still not up there with “Mr. Diddley.” (I blogged that obit a couple of weeks ago, if anyone’s interested: http://montclairsoci.blogspot.com/2008/07/whats-in-name-er-i-mean-style-sheet.html)
