the reason why debunked psychological theory ~learning styles~ drags out its unnatural unlife in corporate training?

because it displaces corporate responsibility for engaging seriously with pedagogy as a heterogenous process between individuals with differing needs and abilities

onto individuals, and specifically learners, to "be aware of" and individually account for their own needs and abilities using a circumscribed framework,

and one which precludes the necessity of institutional support for instructors to enable diverse, adaptive instruction

also this training: do not skip ahead. we all have to cover the same material at the same time and at the same speeds. it is all presented in identical formats

When you talk with people above the age of 25 about music and they be like, "The quality of music peaked at the exact time that my brain was structured in a way which predisposed me to become emotionally bonded to music."

tina guo - dies irae 

this is the first classical soloist album I've listened to since probably 00s era ludovico einaudi. I love the cello, so I was already set up to like this album, but it surprised me with some metal instrumentation (though given that I found this album because of serj tankian's feature track, perhaps it shouldn't be such a surprise). overall a really great listen, with some outstanding tracks

jinjer - cloud factory 

I'm going back to catch up with jinjer's older albums. the grooves on this album are great, it already sounds like a very well established sound. tatiana's voice is excellent, as are the band. a thrashier sound than I was expecting, in places, as well as a doomier passage on the title track. this is a good start!

dvne - asheran 

dvne's signature sound is very much present here: lush and huge, very melodic and very heavy at times. this definitely cements dvne as one of my favourite bands

between the buried and me - colors 

I have somehow never heard much btbam, which is a pretty obvious blind spot. this is great, of course

paradise lost - obsidian 

my first experience with a very well established band. I really enjoyed this, it's exactly my kind of music! it definitely feels like an excellent execution of an already defined sound, which makes sense. I'm excited to go back and hear more from them

the gathering - nighttime birds 

I love this. an really rich saturated sound without sounding too polished, interesting use of synths, great vocals ofc
