Cutting Down on Sweets? This Surprising Musical Trick Could Help

Cutting Down on Sweets? This Surprising Musical Trick Could Help


“…..Now Oxford University psychology professor Charles Spence has taken that research a step further and found that listening to different types of music can actually increase our perception of flavor.  Spence calls this form of mind trickery “sonic seasoning.” He has found that playing certain kinds of music can help us avoid adding unhealthy ingredients such as sugar and salt to our food….”

I though I was over you, the thought of you was like a distant memory but, when I saw your face, when i read your name, it all stated to come back. I smiled when I heard your voice as you sang I wondered how I had ever stopped listening to you, when I watched you preform again I could not stop smiling and this is all your fault Joshua ( one of my best friends who introduced me to Jamie several years ago) , you did this to me!!! – HA oh Jamie Cullum I can’t put my finger on it but something about hearing you play Piano makes me so happy, you have wonderful timing.

Jamie Cullum – Live@Home – Full Show

Hey everyone, Sorry I have not updated in a while things have been pretty crazy, and I’m sure I am one of 100 people left in the USA who has still not seen Frozen, However i have seen a lot of people doing covers of the songs from this new Disney Hit! I love this one simply because it makes me happy, although some of the voice he chose I probably would not have chosen but over all this is very well done. Below is the description of the video:

“With so many covers of Let it Go coming out, people may forget the original Disney magic that this song has, so what better way to preserve that magic with other Disney and Pixar characters singing the song! So enjoy this Disney and Pixar Mashup! Performer is me, Brian Hull and the audio is recorded and produced by Seth O’Neal”

Music Monday thoughts: The Grammy’s 2014

So I came home last night to see the Grammy’s which I knew I would mostly fast forward, which makes me sad because I really love music but you already knew, and as the show began I skipped the opening number which by the way should be amazing but I gave up on Beyonce a long time ago…. Anyways its award season and I always attempt to watch them all mostly for the speeches... p.s. I could not even stay awake and finished them this morning

1) I tried to watch Taylor Swift…. it was a piano slow song why she started doing all that dramatic hair flipping/ head banging looking like Beethoven I’ll never know why that was necessary, it ruined it for me.. and i need to know who that was about because whoever it was really messed with that girls heart and head.

2) I really wanted to see Katy Perry sing but she picked a creepy jam and was in a snow globe.. i mean a crystal ball and those tall grim reapers behind her told me I was out… may have been a good performance but I’ll never no.. made me sad because she has a beautiful voice.

3) Okay something good I loved Sarah Bareilles & Carole King piano duet it was beautiful and I will watch it again

4) I skipped ever Beatles thing I know if you made it this far you may be offended but I am not intending to do so, I just have never liked them that’s not the kind of stuff I grew up on

5) okay I know a lot of you like ” Lorde” but she creeps me out every time i have attempted to watch her on tv no matter what song she is singing I just can’t do it…

6) whatever Ozzy said during his acceptance speech I don’t think anyone understood, also he needs Jesus and some iron pill and a steak becasue he’s so pale.

7) the space people (Daft Punk) from France… i just kept wondering how they are breathing in that helmet all night

8) umm of course i FWD the “same love song” only to see a lot of people…..
Why is Queen Latifah officiating a mass wedding for 33 same sex & heterosexual couples !?!? Then I see Madonna come out in a modest all creamy white country western get up with a sparkly cane…

9) I didn’t hear any amazing thank you speeches I don’t even wanna talk about JayZ’s universalism speech…. its the grammys why didn;t anyone sing their thank you speeches … just saying at least no one did of the part of the show they aired… um what the!!

10) I suppose my favorite part was the Chinese man that played the piano at the end


I think Pink did a really amazing job doing all that crazy Cirque de Soleil stuff she did while she was singing….

Stuck in London by Casey Abrams (from his self-titled debut album) has always been a favorite of mine, Many of this fans affectionately call this the mango (mango tree) song and as you listened to this song you will understand why.

I have anticipated this “new video” that was going to be come out since the beginning of this month when Casey announced that later this October a new video was going to be coming out.  Yesterday when it was released I was not at all disappointed that it was not at all a new song but one of my favorites, if you go search YouTube you will find different variations on “Stuck in London”  <—–> this one is excellent!

This has become my new favorite, although the studio version you can see here has a place in my heart as well, this one brings something special to this already beloved song.

If you are already a fan of his then you are well aware that he & Haley Reinhart are very good friends so its no surprise that after many appearances on his vine and a few shows together she ended up in one of his music video or whatever you want to call this truly amazing work of art that was put together for the re-working of this song.

Its True I smiled all the way through while it played multiple times. I’m sure for the rest of the week If i hear any words that match the lyrics I begin humming or singing it and a smile will slowly begin to appear on my face.

I hope you enjoy this video as much as I have
