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….”


Jamie Cullum – Live@Home – Full Show

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. Happy Music Monday People


Live@Home is the first web music program created to allow the world’s best artists to come and play their songs in a beautiful house. These intimate performances are recorded without an audience, aiming to make artists feel at home.

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….

How to Make Music With Anything

Today Is a sick day I don’t have a lot of energy but I would love to share with you this short video from Soulpancake:

Making music is easy. You can do it with anything! Soul Pancake celebrated Make Lab at the YouTube Space LA with Threadbanger and a bunch of other friends.

A unique Christmas album blending traditional favorites with original songs inspired by the beauty and birth of Jesus.  I’m so excited to be doing this Christmas project! It’s been a desire of my heart for years and the time has finally come! My hope is that this album will become a Christmas favorite that will move, shape, and inspire you and bring a deeper awareness and understanding of the beautiful man, Jesus, who became flesh for us.
