    The interesting part is how music triggers dopamine release. Ah, there anything it can`t do?

    @carmium: Actually the name comes from the abbreviated form of its chemical structure, dihydroxyphenethylamine (DOPA), but I sense you were being facetious. ;-)

    I really like these. I just wish he would hire someone who can draw to do the visuals.

    I must be broken, I`m just not particularly fond of music, I wouldn`t say it bothers me when I have to listen to it, like when riding in someones car for example, but it`s very rare I go out of my way and intentionally listen to music.

    @PinkHomicide I feel bad for you, music is one of my greatest passions in life and my favorite music speaks to my soul

    @PinkHomicide, it`s probably because you`ve never heard music that you like, but that doesn`t mean it isn`t out there. It just means that you`re not impressed by the crap that gets played on the radio or what your friends are buying.

    I have 46 digital music channels from my cable service, and I won`t waste my time listening to any of them, because in my opinion, they`re all crap. I like progressive rock and fusion, but they couldn`t even find room for one stinking channel for either of those genres.

    I`m not saying that`s what you should like, but I am saying that there`s a whole world of great music that you have probably never heard. To find stuff you like, you need to start exploring. One place to start is You seed it with a band you like (at least a little), and it will start playing similar bands. When you hear something you like even better, put that in for your new seed. You might be surprised where it leads you. ;-)

    Dopamine? Addiction? Better ban this stuff.. put it on schedule 1. It has no proven medical value, like marijuana. And you know how terrible those pot-smokers are. You are just as terrible for listening to this "music" thing. You need help, you need music abuse counseling.
