[loudtwitter] Microblogging

Sometimes this is the only blogging I manage to do. Feel free to skip it as is your choice and prerogative but then you may not find out about what I did yesterday and/or how I was feeling (health, mood, etc.) as well as any links I have made a note of for my own and your interest and the odd haiku that I post there …

Musicians' brains keep time

Musicians' brains keep time--With one another: Scientific American Blog

Now, as a trained musician, agree with the first couple of commenters - that our brains synchronise with the metronome and/or the music and that the musicians' brains seem to be synchronised because they are playing the same music to the same metronome, together. I really doubt that there is anything more paranormal involved than that and it would still explain the results discussed in this article. YMMV.

Quote from a chat/IRC interview with Elizabeth Bear

"The other thing is something Steve Brust said to me after I finished my first novel. Which was, more or less, that I should be proud, even though it probably sucked, because I had done something that 99% of the people who set out to write a novel never do. And even if it did suck, if I had finished one, I could finish two. And the second one would suck less than the first."
