10,000 hours

I was just listening to the Macklemore/Ryan Lewis song Ten Thousand Hours which is an ode to the Malcom Gladwell book “Outliers: The Story Of Success“.  In it, Gladwell makes the point that no one is truly proficient at their craft (learning an instrument, playing a sport, the ability to learn your job) until they’ve […]

The National Anthem

It seems to be brought up whenever you view a major sporting event and an artist is trying to re-interpret the National Anthem.  It’s oversung or bloated or drawn out or all of the above  and someone will say they’re never going to top Marvin Gaye’s version.
