things that are currently blowing my mind

1. This trailer, and how well Cate Blanchett does in it:

2. A neurological phenomenon called synesthesia, which causes people’s senses to be linked together so they can see music, or taste colors, or assign personalities to letters and numbers.  (Seriously–this is a documented, studied condition, and it amazes me that the human brain is capable of that kind of behavior.)

  1. Yeah, synesthesia’s pretty trippy. I read a really awesome article about it a while ago, but alas, I don’t remember where. It’s believed that a lot of famous artsy types had some form of it and that it enabled them to be even more creative.

    And I miss you. Be good.

    A teacher of mine in high school had synesthesia. She could taste words. And she was my English teacher. She’s going to grad school at Georgetown now. Craziness.

    And yes, YES to that clip.
