unixronin: Galen the technomage, from Babylon 5: Crusade (Default)

Nothing much, really.  But I was thinking as I made my cappuccino this morning about some article I read, years and years ago, bluenoseishly decrying the evils of rock music on the grounds that it was bad for your health, because ... well, basically because some songs feature a downbeat, is what it came down to.  And according to the author, this was terribly dangerous because it was, you know, the opposite rhythm to your heartbeat, and this was sure to weaken your heart and might even eventually kill you.

Anyway, I couldn't help but think that this was an opinion on music from the viewpoint of someone whose knowledge of music had apparently never grown to encompass anything beyond oompah bands.

So, not much of a revelation for the day.  Just an example of the kind of random stuff that goes through your mind while you're standing in the kitchen on a Monday morning waiting for your doppio to run through the filter.
