Simple rule for newbies or stragglers – pick a tune you heard this week and want to share, and add it to the playlist. Could be a new release, discovered or rediscovered oldie, a tune you stumbled across, or what you’re listening to these days.
I never understood the Weak Force, and i never deeply understood the magnetic portion of the Electromagnetic force, although i could fake it by crunching the numbers. Nevermind the Electroweak. So while i was delighted when the folks at CERN discovered the Higgs Boson, the particle that gives the other particles their mass, and preserves the symmetry of the standard model, i can’t say that i really understand it except at the most superficial level. I’m not convinced that Nick Cave really grasps it either, and i sure don’t grasp what he’s trying to say about the Higgs either, except he doesn’t seem overly excited at the discovery. But it’s all good, the album is a perfect listen for this grey and quiet day. Sing the phone book to me.
