First, they took on counting and the alphabet, and now, in a move surely planned to give all those ex-Bush administration people something to listen and learn from now that they're not so busy, They Might Be Giants has a new album, entitled Here Comes Science. Check out some of the videos... Science is Real … Continue reading Elephants Are Made of Elements – They Might Be Giants Sings About Science
You Got Your Neuroscience in My Music
I'm fascinated by neuroscience, by how the software that is our brain really works. I'm also fascinated by music, and how it can show how the brain works in a common way across cultures. Here's a great example of that. Bobby McFerrin at the 2009 World Science Festival showing how a pentatonic scale is something … Continue reading You Got Your Neuroscience in My Music
Happy Canada Day, eh?

A Song About A Painting That Sounds Like Something From Lit Class
One of the things I really like about The Weakerthans is that their music sort of sounds like the kind of poetry we all had to read in high school literature classes. I know, you think it sucked.

On this, the Irish-est day of the year, I share what might be my first Irish memory, and the thing that probably earns me an honorary Irish-ness. Back in grammar school, we used to do plays every so often. I remember one we did, my class had to learn to sing a song in Gaelic. … Continue reading Kiss Me, I’m (Honorarily) Irish
Ships and Dip V – Gaelic Storm “Beggerman” and Into the Pool
No one knows how to end a show like Gaelic Storm. First show, on the pool deck, and how do they top their crowd surfing from last year? They crowd surf INTO the pool. Awesome! We actually saw Gaelic Storm the week before the cruise and asked Jessie Burns, the fiddler, if she was going … Continue reading Ships and Dip V – Gaelic Storm “Beggerman” and Into the Pool
