But today we’re going to talk about sound. First things first. The Raptor Center takes care of raptors that have been injured, or would otherwise not be able to survive in the wild on…

“Men are not piano keys” Jordan Peterson on Dostoevsky’s Notes From Underground

“Men are not piano keys” Jordan Peterson on Dostoevsky’s Notes From Underground

Dostoevsky Dostoevsky was a big influence on Nietzsche, and it’s very interesting to read them in parallel because (Nietzsche) Dostoevsky is of course a dramatist and Nietzsche is a philosopher, and it’s almost as if Dostoyevsky wrote the drama and Nietzsche provided the philosophical commentary.

MOUNTAINEER NATION SINGS COUNTRY ROADS! πŸˆπŸ’›πŸ’™

Almost heaven, West Virginia. Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River. Life is old there, older than the trees. Younger than the mountains, growing like a breeze. Country roads, take me home To the place I belong. West Virginia, mountain mama, Take me home, country roads. All my memories gather ‘round her. Miner’s lady, stranger to blue water. Dark and dusty, painted on the sky. Misty taste of moonshine, teardrops in my…
