Music Visualizer

Every now and then, if I really like a band, I will buy an album of theirs on iTunes. I like iTunes because I have access to anything I purchase from there will be available on my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro. My favorite way to listen to an album for the first time is to play it on my laptop with a nice set of headphones plugged in. I always make it a point to turn on the visualizer. A music visualizer is a feature that makes music visual, in case you couldn’t figure that out for yourself. The next time you catch yourself listening to music through a media player, check to see if there is a visualizer option. That shit takes it to another level. The notes of a song become swirls of smoke, or dots and dashes, or bolts of electricity. Colors shift and patterns change and you’ll go on a journey through time and space if you only give in and let yourself go. Smoke a bowl and enjoy the light show.

Passing Notes in Class

I was watching The Wonder Years and there was a scene with Kevin Arnold passing notes in class. There’s something special about passing notes. You jot something down on piece of paper and pass it over to a friend when the teacher’s back is turned. They write something back while you anxiously await their response. They slyly return it when the teacher’s not looking. It was like texting before there was texting. Hell, it was better than texting. It was more personal, immediate, and thrilling because you could get in trouble for it. And you could save a really good note as a memento or trophy. I don’t know if kids pass notes in class anymore. I’m sure some do, but they probably use their smartphones for the majority of their illegal classroom socializations.
