I found something my bail pile is good at. Holding down the loose side of my rickety fan. That's something because they weren't any good at teaching or entertaining me.

"There are two types of beings in the universe. Those who dance, and those who do not."
"I get it, yes. I'm a dancer, Gamora is not."
"You just need to find a woman who is pathetic, like you."
"Thanks, buddy."
Drax and Starlord stand by their favorite books for #riotgrams #music theme. Personally, I'm with Drax on this one...

I've often had a song stuck in my head and wondered why, today's book description from the book lover's calendar looks interesting. 📚🎤🎼🎹

DivineDiana I need this calendar! 1y
Elizabeth2 That calendar looks like a TBR nightmare (or dream depending on how you feel about growing TBR lists). I love it!! 1y
BookMaven407 @Elizabeth2 😂 I love it too. 1y
BookMaven407 @DivineDiana I wanted to purchase one for 2017 but procrastinated. I think any book lover would enjoy it 🙂. 1y

Don't even get me started on #5bands cause if I'm not reading books I'm listening to music. And never at the same time. I love seeing what you're all into! 1) Neurosis 2) Alice In Chains 3) Enslaved 4) Primordial 5)Devin Townsend

Felicitations to @DebinHawaii on your #Litsyversary! It's hard to pick my favorite thing to post for the #Debsstack giveaway, which is such a generous thing to do. I figured you're tired of my grandkid pictures, so I've picked my (messy) music corner. As you can tell, I love to sing.

DebinHawaii Never tired of grandkid pics! 💜💜💜 But I love seeing your music corner too--especially with the P&P music on top! Thanks for the Litsyversary love and for joining in the fun! 😀👍❤️ 2y

I don't know enough about music and/or neuroscience to appreciate this. I only know very few of the songs the author referred to to illustrate his points, and a lot of the material went over my head. It's probably better as audiobook.

I don't have a specific favorite nonfiction book but I enjoy reading about World War II specifically the holocaust and musical psychology. These are two of my favorites in those categories. #5555giveaway @Booksandcooks

Listening to the tail end of this with a mask on. Yes, that says vegetable placenta. #wtf. The book was interesting and I'm glad I listened to it on audio, they were able to insert audio demonstrations of many things they were taking about!

This was a really good and interesting audiobook, and listening to it added to the experience due to the number of audio examples included. Much of this book hit home with me as I am taking guitar lessons and learning the basics of music after not knowing anything about the science of music or music theory for my first 50 years. The parts about how music affects the brain and how it can bring back memories was fascinating.

"If a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound? Simply, no. Sound is a mental image created by the brain in response to vibrating molecules."

#day21 #augustphotochallenge #augustofpages I figured since the theme is book+music why not post a book about the human obsession with music? Boom!!!! I got this pup for Christmas and can't wait to finally get to it!!!
