Music is within each and every one of us, and that is powerful. This video clip highlights the world science festival where musician Bobby McFerrin sings with an audience of (what is mostly likely) scientist, and shows each and every one of them that they all have music inside of them. That shit is madness. He has the audience sing a simple scale and while they sing he improvises a little. He then extends the scale to notes that he hasn't taught the audience yet, but all are able to continue to sing along, without really knowing what they're singing. Observe:
Although they didn't sing anything too musically complex, the fact that all audiences are able to do that is mind blowing crazy ass shit. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it all. That's why we (as humans) all (generally) enjoy music. Regardless of genera, or preference music is so enjoyable to people because it's universal and within us all. I leave you with one of my favorites:

fresh from the UK comes 18 year old 'Unicorn Kid.' This remix of the Gorillaz "Superfast Jellyfish" is perhaps some of the most intellectually stimulating music I've heard recently, and for his age, he's absolutely tearin it up. I haven't disliked anything I've heard from him, and at this rate it's unlikely that I will.
Recently I was linked to this video clip. The ensuing hilarity provoked me into watching the movie.
Since I was notified of this movies existence two days ago I have seen it twice, laughing and enjoying it both times. It's cleverly written, and although it does go on for a while, you won't regret sitting through the end, and even the bloopers in the credits.
And from the series of tubes that is the dark void of the internet, a speck of dust that wasn't, is. And this speck, floating among all other specks is at once a source for hope for all those glassy eyes locked on to the screens of their electronic world. This speck of a site many would call a blog however, is unlike all others. THIS speck will hold and contain the ramblings and wit of a college student, as never seen before by the intricacies of the world wide web. This site may or may not contain anything this students choses to post; maybe pictures, maybe music, maybe a video, or even a music video. The likes of which will revolutionize the face of the internet as we know it today. These media files and countless grammatical errors have no doubt never been seen before and will hopefully inspire a generation into a state of 'free web,' where others will be inspired to post whatever they like as well. Or maybe this speck will be your run of the mill blog, it don't make no nevermind.
