    When they are able to implant a chip in us, the distraction of using a handheld device won't be as noticeable.

    I still have to get used to people who look they are talking to themselves, or thinking they talk to me, while they are talking to someone on the phone.

    Holy Fuck.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    To my surprise, I developed some serious respect for Taylor Swift after watching her NPR Tiny Desk Concert.

    “Pleasure and pain can be experienced simultaneously,” she said, gently massaging my back as we listened to her Coldplay CD.

    Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion is now Live From Here Chris Thile. Let's just say Chris has changed this up a bit

    Pretty cool, though that first percussion bit had me thinking of a Pete Townshend synth opening and waiting for the inevitable power chord...

    I've watched other videos purporting to be authentic music of the 'Are'are people taped on their islands but to me, these seem Westernized.By that i sense that those performances are hybrids of their traditional music and Western musical influences.I could be totally wrong about this(not the first or the last time) but that's what i think.

    The music in the video i posted seems more "authentic".I have done no research on the music of the 'Are'are;perhaps i should.
