Inflammatory Vices: Is Joanna Newsom starring in P.T. Anderson's new film?
You might know Paul Thomas Anderson's work, from Boogie Nights to Magnolia to There Will Be Blood. Let's pause right there because I have to give a small shout-out to the latter, which I consider to be Anderson's masterpiece. From the elaborate landscapes to Jonny Greenwood’s sinister score to Daniel Day-Lewis' thrilling performance as oil man Daniel Plainview, the movie marked a new turn for Anderson, showing that while his artistic eye can hone in on masterful shots with specific detail, he can also take on grand ideas with the gusto of a man who has a firm handle on his craft. And who can forget the “I drink your milkshake” scene. Fantastic stuff.

I’m Happy When it’s Sad
Study concludes sad music evokes positive emotions
A group of researchers from Tokyo University of the Arts and RIKEN Brain Science Institute have decided to tackle an interesting subject: Why do we love sad songs? It's a valid question, considering many sad songs have entered the top-40 and kept listeners on their toes while belting out minor chords over hopeless lyrics. Adele's “Someone Like You” is one example that comes to mind. These researchers not only wanted to discuss the various reasons why people listen to sad music but also to see if they could pinpoint certain characteristics within the music that pique certain emotions.
