​If you haven't seen any of Clayton Cubitt's videos of "Hysterical Literature," here's one for your viewing pleasure. Women reading to the camera while something slowly develops under the table! It's pretty clear once you start watching.  What's fascinating is the connection to the breath, the resonation of the words, the break-down of self-editing. Last week we posted this video a reader shared with us, describing what happens to the brain during an orgasm.

The lateral orbitofrontal cortex is turned off which controls self-evaluation, reason and control...this shuts down fear and anxiety

I chose this one since I'm a big fan of Uncle Walt. Video after the fold. {NSFW}

Are you running towards something or away? We're really good at knowing what we don't want.

But if we're constantly running away, then where are we going? Somewhere that isn't here? To some job that isn't like this one? To a place where I won't eat this piece of pie?

Sometimes an open field is the destination, but at least we know that's where we're going because we want to be there.

Check out this clip from a 1994 documentary about the boardwalk in Wildwood, NJ. Everything about it is mesmerizing. One of many, money quotes (h/t You Tube commenter for transcription):

Hitchcock and actress Anny Ondra in a sound test for his movie, "Blackmail." Both are wonderfully giddy and disheveled!? If you haven't seen this, it's worth your 42 seconds. If you have seen this, it's worth your 42 seconds.

I'm obsessed with Radio Lab. I forgot about this video until I just thought of it. If it's raining where you live, sit by the window and watch. Enjoy!
