The brain is wider than the sky,
For, put them side by side,
The one the other will include
With ease, and you beside.

The brain is deeper than the sea,
For, hold them, blue to blue,
The one the other will absorb,
As sponges, buckets do.

The brain is just the weight of God,
For, lift them, pound for pound,
And they will differ, if they do,
As syllable from sound.
Emily Dickinson (x)

My daughter has chosen the Dark Side

I’m crying.

Every time I encounter this video, I hit replay so many times it’s ridiculous.

"Several analyses have shown the test is totally ineffective at predicting people’s success in various jobs, and that about half of the people who take it twice get different results each time," Stromberg writes.

Stromberg says one of the key flaws to the test is that it relies on “limited binaries”. Most humans, he says, fall along a spectrum and are not easily classified into opposite choices. People aren’t exclusively extroverts or introverts - and where they fall on the spectrum can fluctuate widely based on how they are feeling at the moment.

I’ve been saying this for years. Myers-Briggs is a load of old tosh. You might as well rely on astrological personality descriptions.

I’ve been typed INTJ, INTP, ISTP, and ESTJ.  I can relate somewhat to all of the character descriptions of these types (see Forer effect?)

If anything, I think MBTI picks up introverted/extroverted tendencies, so it’s probably more likely to be useful than a horoscope.  BUT I suspect the rest of it is pretty fuzzy.

Speaking of music I listened to obsessively my freshman year, here’s “Chicken Song” by Regina Spektor.

So I keep dancing with this deadweight round my ankles
And it thickens every time I turn away
There’s something spartan in the way we choose our battles
There’s something spartan in the way we cast our stones
It takes a bit more than a kiss for the princess to awaken
And a bit less than a fuck for her to stay awake


So don’t go away
Be my view for today
I just wanna see something lovely as I look outside my window
It’s like a system here
Another day, another year
Another joke, another beer
And I’m slipping through [my fingers]

One of my favorite Spektor songs by far, plus you have the great opening line: “Stop jerking off and eat your chicken, baby.”

Tony Rice improvising on “Shenandoah” at some bluegrass festival.  This is a clip from a documentary on modern bluegrass, so there’s an annoying bit near the end where a narrator talks over the music.  Other than that it’s pretty sweet.

I spent an embarrassing amount of time listening to this, Tchaikovsky, and Regina Spektor my freshman year of college instead of doing homework…

"Church Street Blues" by Tony Rice

At one point he says “Folded up my ol’ billfold and threw it far away”, which made me realize that (1) I’ve always used/accepted the word “billfol” as another word for a wallet and (2) perhaps because of the way I grew up pronouncing it, but I never realized that “billfol” == “bill fold”.

To be fair, I’ve never seen it written out before, though.

Anyway, Tony Rice is one of my earliest musical memories and I freaking LOVE his voice.
