I often wonder how my brain works, I think many people who encounter me do as well. Yesterday a song called ‘Three Little Pigs’ by a fairly obscure band called Green Jelly popped into my head. Why? I have no idea – this kind of thing happens to me often, indeed, a colleague said to me today “whenever random songs start running through my head it’s generally your fault.”
Combined with a labyrinthine ability to remember lyrics from things I’ve not heard in ages I can’t help but think I’ve somehow missed a trick with some part of my brain that hoovers up everyday trivialities instead of filing useful information in an easily retrievable fashion. That said, a number of times in my daily doings I’ve stumbled upon techniques to harness this nature of the brain, but never mastered them.
This, for your delectation, is ‘Three Little Pigs’ by the formidible Green Jelly:
So yeah, whilst I can merrily recall artists, song names and lyrics from more than decade ago – that I suspect I’ve not heard since then – I quite merrily struggle to recall pieces of work I’ve been striving toward within a few weeks. I suppose that’s some kind of insight into motivations, isn’t it? Maybe.
In other news, meat-drying production has continued to be successful – although I’ve since discovered the bag sealer I was using perhaps wasn’t quite as airtight as I’d hoped so just had to consign an older batch to the bin disappointingly. I have another load currently drying so it shan’t be long ’til I have meaty goodness available again. Pissed off at the waste though, back to using takeaway boxes and refrigerating, methinks.
