David Byrne was fantastic. loved the listen after initial struggle but soon couldn't stop. so much to ponder in relation to my life as a consumer of music and as a performer.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

This book is all about concepts, conjectures and theories formed about the many characteristics of music. Music theory is a part of Musicology which is an intellectual analysis and study of music and musicology that comes under the vast field of studies on humanities. Music is normally concerned with intellectual characteristics of music like scales, tuning, consonance or rhythm but besides this there is another theory of the concrete aspects like creating music, orchestration, electronic sound and protection etc.
