    In a series of three experiments, a team of psychologists from Lancaster University, the University of Central Lancashire and the University of Gävle investigated the impact of background music on creativity. Their findings challenge the popular view that music enhances creativity, and instead demonstrate that music, regardless of the presence of semantic content (no lyrics, familiar lyrics, or unfamiliar lyrics), disrupts creative performance in insight problem solving.“Creativity is a vital aspect of cognition underpinning activities such as innovative product design, scientific advancement, and effective advertising and marketing communications,” said lead author Dr. Emma Threadgold from the University of Central Lancashire...

    It is both harrowing and infinitely sad to see "Leaving Neverland" and "Surviving R. Kelly,"  two cable television documentaries about the crime of child sexual abuse, its perpetrators and victims. R. Kelly currently sits in a Chicago jail cell for failure to pay child support, while at the same time, years of allegations about his sexual abuse of underage girls, have finally caught up with him. The R&B star says he is unfairly accused and that his career has been ruined by the allegations. "Leaving Neverland" aired last week, profiling two men who say Michael Jackson sexually abused them when...

  • Peter Tork, endearingly offbeat bassist and singer in the Monkees, dies at 77

    Peter Tork, a blues and folk musician who became a teeny-bopper sensation as a member of the Monkees, the wisecracking, made-for-TV pop group that imitated and briefly outsold the Beatles, died Feb. 21. He was 77. His death was confirmed by his sister Anne Thorkelson, who did not say where or how he died. Mr. Tork was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare cancer affecting his tongue, in 2009. If the Monkees were a manufactured version of the Beatles, a “prefab four” who auditioned for a rock-and-roll sitcom and were selected more for their long-haired good looks than their...

    Hee-Young Lim, a Korean cellist, launched her first CD French Cello Concertos last November. Now she is tapping into the classical music world in China. "Playing the cello feels like meditation, it becomes sort of a mirror and helps you see within yourself. And since I have no siblings and used to spend a lot of time alone reading books, my parents felt this was all good because it was almost as though I had a constant companion in the cello!" Hee-Young Lim recalled the beginning of her musical journey. The Seoul-born musician entered the Korean National University at age...

    Wim (William) Statius Muller is the National Composer of ABC (Aruba, Bonaire & Curacao, the Netherlands Antilles), now cut off from the rest of the world by Alexandra Venezuela-Cortez's sugar daddy, Nicolas Maduro. Wim was a spymaster, who set up Curacao's intelligence bureau; he worked in Netherlands intelligence during the Cold War. That alone would send Alexandra Venezuela-Cortez' college mobs after him. But as an old white man, Wim is guilty of the supreme crime of Cultural Appropriation. It seems that, from his colonial, Netherlands Antilles upbringing, Wim is an expert composer in the intensely polyrhythmic local music style. And...

    In 1999, Australia rejected the idea of becoming a republic, Pokémon took over the world, Ricky Martin struck out on his own, the Euro was created as Europe’s single currency, and we were all terrified Y2K would plunge us all into an apocalypse. But pop culture maniacs will forever remember 1999 as the year in which the greatest rivalry in pop culture reached its peak. The Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC, both riding enormous waves of success in the late ‘90s, divided music fans across the globe.
