Music to relax
by but which also makes your
heart flutter is good
Well I`ve come across the music of a Japanese classical composer called Toshio Hosokawa. He`s been around for a long while but I only heard about him when I read a review of one of his albums this week in a cultural review. Better late than never. This guy`s music is amazing!! Quite good music to listen to when you`re annoyed at failing websites (take a hint Memrise) among other reasons. I sought out his music on y-tube and am sure to return to listen to more.
Another cultural discovery this week was Shunga – had never heard of it before – and news of a Shunga exhibition coming up in London. Not for kids (or the fainthearted I imagine).
Memrise has been here and there in the last two days. Luckily the domain name had been on hold for these folks who run the site, but it`s a pain that the site went down while the organizers decided if they wanted to keep the name or not (if that`s what it was about). At least our efforts were not undone. I suggest the name be retained at this stage. It`s what the site is about – memorizing information through the help of mems. Messing with the basics when you could be working on other more urgent problems with the site is a mistake.
