Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 2/4/09

Not going to blab too much this week as I'm still feeling some melancholy about Metal Maniacs, my co-worker who was let go and other bits of things. But hey, those Steelers pulled out a miracle against a very deserving Arizona Cardinals who put up an amazing show in the 2nd half. Yay, Steelers! That Fitzgerald, though, wow, the man's something special...

Had an interview with Trevor Phipps of Unearth last week and I should be getting both Wayne Static and Dee Snider this week, so I'm starting to squeeze just a little bit of my life back into play, even though little man keeps me busier than a porcupine in a nudist colony, as Foghorn Leghorn would say.

Thus it's been a heavy dose of the entire Static-X studio catalog this week including the new one Cult of Static, but also massive shots of Thin Lizzy as well. The baby seems to really dig "Jailbreak," good boy...

This week’s reading list: “What Have You Changed Your Mind About?: Today’s Leading Minds Rethink Everything” – much of this book flies over my head (i.e. quantum physics, evolutionary biology, randomness, etc. but I must admit it is refreshing to read about leading scientists, philosophers, etc. admit they’ve changed their beliefs about certain primary elements of their profession)

Watching: “The Illusionist”, 2004 World Series

I think true evolution comes through constant re-evaluation of one's thought. There's room to grow and to enlighten yourself to other possibilities. Why else would life be worth living? If one is willing to surrender to stagnance, I suppose that's his or her prerogative, but thinking people from Malcolm X to Albert Einstein are great for their willingness to re-examine themselves and their core ideologies in order to grow deeper as human beings
