It’s a Sin:

[Jean Michel Jarre & Pet Shop Boys – 2016] Brick England:

“It’s a Sin” was my emotional theme song, for most of my early life…and I just absolutely loved it, when it was originally playing on the radio.

The others are my favorite PSB tracks…and they include a very surprise collaboration track from 2016…They’ve put out some nice stuff, over the last couple of decades…but I never thought I’d see the day return, where they legitimately had strong hit material…It’s a crime that this one didn’t get any publicity…or air play.

The Psychology of Morality…

01) Moral Maze: The Psychology of Morality

“Go on – admit it. You like to feel you’re above average. Don’t worry. We all like to feel we’re somehow special – that our gifts make us stand out from – and above – the crowd. Psychologists refer to this phenomenon as positive illusion. It’s the sort of self-deception that helps maintain our self-esteem; a white lie we tell ourselves. The classic example is driving: the majority of people regard themselves as more skilful and less risky than the average driver. But research just published shows that this characteristic isn’t confined to skills like driving. Experiments carried out by psychologists at London’s Royal Holloway University found most people strongly believe they are just, virtuous and moral and yet regard the average person as – well, how shall we put it politely? Let’s just say – distinctly less so. Virtually all the those taking part irrationally inflated their moral qualities. Worse, the positive illusion of moral superiority is much stronger and more prevalent than any other form of positive illusion. Now, as a programme that’s been testing our nation’s moral fibre for more than 25 years, we feel this is something we’re uniquely qualified to talk about. Well, we would wouldn’t we? So, if we can’t entirely rely on our own calibration to judge a person’s moral worth, how should we go about it? Is the answer better and clearer rules, a kind of updated list of commandments? There might need to be a lot more than ten though. Does legal always mean moral? In a world that is becoming increasingly fractious, being less morally judgmental sounds attractive, but if we accept that morality is merely a matter of cognitive bias, do we take the first step on the road to moral relativism? The Moral Maze – making moral judgements so you don’t have to. Witnesses are David Oderberg, Michael Frohlich, Anne Atkins and Julian Savulescu.”

01) Song to Say Goodbye – Placebo (High Quality)


This may seem like a totally inappropriate song, given it’s lyrics…But I feel like, given the complicated state of our relationship over the decades…this song and video embodies the experience…And I’ve been drawn too it, over and over, in the weeks after my father’s death.

For some reason…this song kept coming back to me, in the months leading up to his death, as well…

It’s hard to explain…I knew in my gut, that time was short…I could feel it…Maybe, it’s just an extra sense you have, when you’ve known someone all of your life.

I’ve recently had three dreams, in which he has made an appearance…They were all strange…

…But the one that’s meant the most, is the one where I was walking along…Where?…I have no idea…though I think it was dark…and something floats up behind me, and hugs me from my back…And for a second, I know it is him…and he says, “I love you”…and then is gone…

I don’t believe in these things as a literal thing…Sometimes, I wish I did…But, in times of stress and mourning, your mind can be especially active in dreams…and focused on whatever is happening.

It would be nice to think, I’ve had a literal contact with dad.

How Men and Women Think – FULL DEBATE…


Date: February 06, 2017

01) How Men and Women Think – FULL DEBATE


“Are mental differences between the sexes real?

Many neuroscientists believe disorders of the mind will be solved when we understand the differences between the male and female brain. Yet it is frequently argued that men and women are not born but made. Are mental differences between the sexes real? Or is this just sexism dressed up as science?

Cambridge psychologist Simon Baron-Cohen, Darwinian philosopher Helena Cronin and eminent neuroscientist Gina Rippon investigate.”

Days Before Leaving Office, Obama Says Marijuana Should Be Legal…

01) Days Before Leaving Office, Obama Says Marijuana Should Be Legal “Like Cigarettes or Alcohol”


“Only now that he is leaving office, President Obama comes out in favor of marijuana legalization saying it should be treated as a public health issue and regulated like tobacco and alcohol”

Well…Thanks a lot for that, Barack…

…It means so much for you to give moral support today, after eight years of refusal to take a stand, while in an unprecedented position of influence and power.

This is an excellent example of how politics in the United States are such a sickening farce…Even the most powerful politicians wont stand up for what they believe in, if they think they’ll suffer ill consequences for doing so.

I mean…it’s not as if he campaigned on marijuana liberation…but still…He refused to take the conscientious stand, that he believes in.

That says everything, as far as I am concerned.
