baxterp2: inothernews: Let’s pass laws requiring news photographers to also carry things that will allow them to heroically extricate people from situations where subway cars — each weighing about 85,000 pounds — are bearing down at speeds topping out at 55 mph so everyone on the Internet can feel better about not… Cute.

TED, Victor Wooten, Music and Communication.
I’m a huge fan of Victor Wooten - not just his thoughts, but his unique perspectives and musical approach. Take a look at this TED Ed video featuring his ideas on learning and teaching music, and a fantastic rendition of “Amazing Grace.” If you’ve never seen him play live, make it a point to do so. And let’s not forget the implications of what the first few minutes...

This is a great spot done by RKCR/Y&R in the UK. The music struck me and has a really great Olympic quality to it with copy-catting too much on familiar tunes from history. Then I found out that Elbow wrote the music. Awesome. It definitely has their flavor and makes me like the band even more!
