@Shelia nice sound effect to blank out the naughty word

The nice thing about studying jiu jutsu or some other martial art is that it teaches you to overcome that natural instinct to freeze when in danger.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 9/6/19 4:17pm tim from champaign:

In a training I was in recently about the effects of trauma, freezing was discussed as a naturally/instinctual response to a traumatic event. Along with fight and flight, freezing can occur because a person wants to assess the situation before acting (this is all occuring in a split second). I don't want to sound glib in relaying this because I'm deeply empathetic toward the women Weinstein assaulted, DJ Sheila's description of the doc reminded me of this.
  Fri. 9/6/19 4:20pm Jocelyn:

I’m glad that discussing freezing, the psychology of it is becoming more discussed openly. For so long it was oh it couldn’t be so bad if you didn’t run or react differently but you froze!

Great movie but very strange the crying game
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Fri. 9/6/19 4:25pm tim from champaign:

The term used for freezing is 'flocking' which stems from the instinct to stop and observe what someone else is doing to respond accordingly. The example used in my training was a newborn/baby looking around their surrounds to gauge how to react when something happens. With that said, no one should be criticized for how they responded to violence toward them. It doesn't matter how one responds; it's the person who being violent who is at fault.

I always wonder what synths are being used in Turkish music from the late 1960s through the mid-1970s. Generally, the use of the synth seems to fit perfectly with pop Turkish folk. The melding is so lovely it feels somewhat akin to how traditional Irish musicians discovered and incorporated the bouzouki.

My 24 yr old (non-FMU listener) just stuck his head in my office when the Lijadu Sisters were singing and said "Wow, this is really nice!" I will convert him! He doesn't listen to a lot of music anymore -- we had similar tastes when he did, but he kind of gave that up when he dove head-first into listening to political podcasts
