Lost - The Sideways Edition

I truly feel that people will never understand how much I LOVED this show (and even the finale) and part of it is Doc Jensen and his essays. He has a new one out that you can read here. I haven't read it yet because to be honest I don't have the time but I look forward to savoring every word. This is the last LOST gift and I am being tantric about it.

Wanted: Executive Control System

Bilingual people use their brains' executive control system more than others. I would normally say this is true but the article says: "There’s a system in your brain, the executive control system. It’s a general manager. Its job is to keep you focused on what is relevant, while ignoring distractions. It’s what makes it possible for you to hold two different things in your mind at one time and switch between them." I can barely hold unto one thought. I am going with this myth is BUSTED.

Smell is overrated

Teens would rather give up sense of smell rather than FB. This may be a bit fucked up but I agree with the teens. McCann Worldgroup polled 7,000 people between the ages of 16 and 30 in the U.S., the U.K., Spain, China, Brazil, India, Mexico, and several other countries to find that without technology, a majority of this group would feel isolated and out of the loop. Maybe because of my allergies I can't usually smell things anyway but I can always Facebook.

Rumor has it!

Restarting #100G8TESTCDS #16 Fleetwood Mac Rumors. 1 of the best EVER. Sad not in top 10. Damn you VH1. I Don’t Want To Know is the song!

Weirdly, tonight Glee is dedicating and episode to this CD that has been spinning in my iTunes for over a month since I got too busy at work. Also of interest is that today is when Stevie Nicks released her first new CD in 10 years. Guess waiting for stuff is worth it. Regardless, I love this CD and was once again exposed to it by my Momma. When she would sing to it though it sounded like "Jew can go jor own Vay." Ah memories.
