The Sound of Music Business

04.24.2006 by Mark Forman

Photo by Jek in the Box Funny how the music business can sound just like "monkey business."

Photo by Zoagli Yes, I'm standing here with my gold ultra-deluxe tritium foil hat on-giving you a list of predictions that were full of hubris and completely erroneous. Layered in and around this are the latest in cutting edge songs for the 3D listener. We at MindField endeavor to do stuff we find interesting, because we […]

MindField:Water=More than One “H” and Two “O’s”

03.28.2006 by Mark Forman

Photo by EmotionBlogster Water, the stuff of legend, of life. The substance that keeps us going on this globe mostly covered by the liquid. We crave it like the Fremen on Arrakis craved spice, only difference our eyes don't get that nice blueish glow, but our skin does get a nice sheen to it. Splash it, […]

Photo by Flutterbye8567 I've been thinking about the subject of dreams and the action as well.

Commerical Drugs/Drug Commercials

03.11.2006 by Mark Forman

Photo by Xtrarant When I was back in the US recently I was appalled by the number of pharmaceutical ads on tv and their tone-get the consumer tweaked about some drug or condition and go tell your physician to prescribe said drug... This really alarmed me, thus I rant and mix music in. Play some promos […]
