Re: What books are you currently reading?

A novel by Sophie Hannah. A psycho thriller about a man who confesses to murdering someone years ago only to be told by a police sergeant that the said victim is still very much alive. Huh? what?!
Doesn't make sense at all but I'm only in the 5th chapter and I've got over 30 more to go thru before I can make sense of it.

This is probably the quickest way to figure out what you're doing / what you want to do when it comes to making music in Live. I've frustrated myself enough with YT videos in the past to know that RTFM is pretty much the 'express' lane to figuring shit out, even though it looks gigantic at first.

I'm thinking about getting a physical copy for the bathroom, just because I'm weird like that

I just read "When Breath Becomes Air." If you are in the medical field, or if you know of someone facing illness, or even if you are simply looking for a profound yet easy read, I highly recommend it! It truly put my life into perspective, and I can't imagine anyone walking away from it without being moved.

Re: What books are you currently reading?

Best recent read was Robert M Sapolski - Behave: The biology of Humans at our best and our worst

The author is primatologist/neurologist and describes how our behavior is driven by specific events going from milliseconds before to a million years before. This is spans cognitive neuroscience and evolutionary psychology, providing a rare holistic insight why we behave so irrationally.

I followed this up with
Jonathan Haidt- The Righteous Mind, which is rather more focused on the evolutionary psychology aspects

and

Stanislas Dehaene - Consciousness and the brain, which goes into the physiology of how consciousness arises within the brain and how our decision making is driven by the interplay of emotions and reason.

Great read is also the classic Daniel Kahneman - Thinking fast, thinking slow, and which elaborates how the way our brain is organized and works leads to predictably irrational behavior.

Good reading, sounds like. Though I feel it might turn your blood green. Nothing wrong with that either.

Reading the Dance Manual. I know the basics but the book is helping fill in the cracks and there are some pretty interesting details I didn't seem to realize up until this point.

Re: What books are you currently reading?

I finished reading CRIME AND PUNISHMENT last week, man that book was really fun to read, so comical and dark at the same time

I also read MORTALITY by Christopher Hitchens, a rather short remark on his challenge with cancer and death, he's a really good writer

and now I'm reading THE DIVINE COMEDY, and MAN THIS BOOK IS SO AWESOME, DO RECOMMEND!

Excellent book. Very dark. I would never say comical though.

The lesson here is: never let qianta look after your grandma, unless you want her to get pregnant.


Dostoievski... I love his style of writing, but what he writes about fucked me up for life. Even 20 years after reading this, I'm mildly ptsd' by some passage in the book where he describes the mental dizzyness of the dude after he killed the old woman (and her grandaughter or something?). It made me physically sick and I did have bad dreams.

Yeah, I felt the same nausea as I was reading. I don't think you look at other people, or yourself, the same after. It's not just dark but scary.
