Yay! No songs about the annoying brother-in-law this week. It seems that now that I’ve decided to drop the whole nice charade (not so much by choice as I simply ran out of niceness), I’ve been less preoccupied with my anger towards him. Which has been nice because now I spend all of my time making his life a living hell. Mwahahaha. But I digress.

As I mentioned in this post, I’m currently super-obsessed with The Count of Monte Cristo right now and especially the anime adaptation, Gankutsuou. So my song for this week is: Jean-Jacques Burnel – We Were Lovers, the moving opening song to Gankutsuou. Through sheer obsession (since I lack the training and the talent), I’ve finally gotten the first 25% of it down on the piano. I’m hoping to be able to play the whole song by the end of the summer, though that’s probably a little ambitious considering it took me a good three weeks just to barely get the first 25% down.

As always, feel free to submit song suggestions through the contact form.

» Yum!  Now that’s something I can live with: eating curry to stave off cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.  Researchers in Singapore found that people (aged 60-93) who ate curry even only occasionally scored higher on the Mini Mental Status Exam (MMSE) than those who never ate curry.  The curry spice, turmeric, contains curcumin, which has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  And the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease in the elderly in India is fourfold less than that in the United States. # 0

» There’s a great article today about how the MIT Dean of Admissions wants to reduce admissions anxiety in teenagers.  How about parents getting off of their kids’ backs?  That would help.  But I do admire her for trying to create a friendlier system that might just ease the pressure enough to not give parents such reason to push their kids so hard.  Too bad it probably won’t happen any time soon.  And go ahead and try to tell Asian parents to stop pushing their kids to the point of insanity.  I dare you. # 0
