Music and the Brain Documentary

CTV is showing a new documentary tomorrow night called "The Musical Brain" that sounds fascinating.

Scientists are only just beginning to understand the complex processes that go into making and listening to music, and there's been a lot of recent attention to the topic, thanks to Daniel Levitin's books "This is Your Brain on Music" and "The World in Six Songs," as well as Oliver Sack's "Musicophilia."

I've read all three of those books, so I am disappointed that I'll be missing the broadcast. I'll be on stage in Kitchener with my fellow Girls with Glasses, all neurons firing. Maybe someone will tape it for me.

Hmmm, how do I put this? A DVD player is sooooo....1990s. How about a DVR (digital video recorder)? Ya gotta be able to record TV or you'll just waste your life playing music and reading!!! ;-)

Believe me, I waste far too much time on TV as it is. A DVR would just make it all much, much worse.
