“Pandora recommendations are based on musical sound similarities (~400 attributes) rather than musical genre or historical influence. See the Music Genome Project entry in Wikipedia. If bands appear side by side, it might indicate kindred spirit, but not necessarily direct musical influence.”

“Consciousness seems hard to pin down, and it's a pretty precarious thing to experience.

The idea that consciousness can be separated from the body runs into problems as soon as you have a brain injury, stroke, dementia, Alzheimer's, or anything else out of an Oliver Sacks book. After a brain disease or injury, isn't it the consciousness that changes? Isn't consciousness always changing and evolving based on how the brain grows and changes, and doesn't it depend on other faculties like memory, sensation, and the rest?

Which of your consciousnesses survives after death? Which one is the "real you": your young consciousness, your mature one, or the diseased and impaired one you die with? If you assume that the consciousness/soul has some kind of integrity, what does the part of the consciousness that gets lost experience when it dies from disease or injury?”

“This has to be looked at alongside everything that Cheney, Paul Ryan, and this ilk say, as part of the overall conservative rhetorical strategy.

The goal is to build a topsy-turvy alternative reality in which war = peace, tax cuts = revenue, deregulation = safety, and so on:

Make your opponent's strengths his weaknesses, make your weaknesses your strengths.”

“I agree about this. While it's hard to take what Clinton says about his own feelings at face value, I was watching him closely during the speech and I could swear that I saw his hands shaking.

No question, he is an exceptional speaker under pressure.”

Mama62 on Sep 8, 2012 at 00:37:29

“I saw his hands shaking as well. How old is he now? The pressure on him was off the chart and he delivered. Not much more needs to be said. Even if he wanted to flirt with Ms. Fluke just a little, no harm. I'm sure she can handle herself.”

Paul Ryan: I Wasn't Blaming Obama For GM Plant Closure

Paul Ryan: I Wasn't Blaming Obama For GM Plant Closure

Commented Sep 4, 2012 at 14:36:57 in Politics

““Right there at that plant, candidate Obama said: ‘I believe that if our government is there to support you, this plant will be here for another hundred years.’ That’s what he said in 2008.”

Well, obviously in 2008, the government wasn't there to support the plant. The Republican policy was to let the American auto industry go bankrupt, which was Romney's position as well. Obama did support the auto industry, over Republican objections, by approving the bailout, which saved more than just one plant:

Also, a belief is not a promise, so what is Ryan's point, what is he trying to imply?”

“We have to be careful not to panic here. Money correlated with victory before Citizens United, but there may be limits to what money can buy (we'll find out this cycle for sure).

We definitely can't be complacent with disproportionate money and highly organized voter suppression on the right.

He's Younger, She's Older -- Can This Marriage Last?

He's Younger, She's Older -- Can This Marriage Last?

Commented Oct 8, 2011 at 15:39:57 in Divorce

“These studies sound too pat and academic.

A factor in failing December-May marriages may be rates of maturity and biology. 5 years can put a man and woman biologically into conflicting phases of life, where for example the younger man may be desperate to establish himself in his career, while the woman has been there and done that and just needs to have children before the clock runs out. If the woman already has children, the man may reach an age where it dawns on him that he wants to have his own children. There are lots of potential biological/maturity conflicts that can be played out with just a few years difference. Men are generally slower to get their act together and get a clue, IMO.

Not saying that these relationships can't work, but just that there may be more to it than the obvious media-fed cult of youth and beauty. It would be more interesting/useful to study what makes December-May relationships work.”

“Mitt Romney seems to forget how the Republicans attained their minority status.

It is clear to most that calling Democrats monarchists is backwards, based on how Republicans governed when they had their super-majority in the earlier 2000s. The electoral revolution already happened in 06 and 08, and the Republicans lost their monarchical power.

Minority status will not serve the Republicans until/unless people forget how they got to be the minority. You can't, like Stephen Colbert's joke on inauguration day, point the economy Bush/Republicans ruined and say, "The economy is ruined on Obama's watch."”
