Binaural Beats & #Nanowrimo Prep

It’s that time of year again – NaNoWriMo fever starts as a tickle in the back of the throat and over the next few weeks takes over the entire body leaving one a twitch-fingered slave of the keyboard for yet another 30 days till it runs its course.

The past couple of years part of my brain prep as been to take some sort of workshop – writing or, as I did last year, an improv scene creation workshop – that gets the brain thinking in different ways.

On a recent Disinfo podcast there was a discussion about binaural beats – the use of certain sound frequencies to stimulate & balance the left and right sides of the brain. I did a bit of research and found more info. That led me to  checking iTunes so see what was available there.

I found a couple of things – one a set of guided meditations & with subliminal tracks to increase clarity and concentration. Plus a single – 30 min –  called ‘Theta Binaural Session.’ So for October I’m going to give these a consistent listen. I’m not going to convert them to mp3 as the compression changes the crucial pitch of the tones used – at least that’s the theory. There’s one for automatic writing so maybe I should try that too:-)

here’s a recent little something silly:

I Bought The Farm 

Old MacDonald had a farmhand

ei ei oh ho ho

and on that farm hand

there were pecs there were abs

with an ab ab here

and a pec pec pecker there

Old MacDonald had a farm hand

ei ei oh ho ho

country fresh and freckle faced

broad of shoulder and sturdy of leg

with a bi bi bicep here and a calf calf there

here a peck there a peck

peck peck peckers everywhere

Old MacDonald had a farm hand

ei ei oh ho ho

rolling in the hay

shucking corn and pressing those grapes

with sha sha shuck shuck here

press press there

here a peck there a peck

peck peck peckers everywhere

Old MacDonald had a farm hand

ei ei oh ho ho

with a bit between those white white teeth

plowing the fields

plowing in the bedroom

with seeds spread there

here a squirt there a squirt

here a pec there an ab

with peck peck peckers everywhere

Old MacDonald had a farm hand

ei ei oh ho ho

time for me

to get back to the land
