When You Break Up With Someone You Love, You Arent Going To Stop Thinking About Them Right Away

When you break up with someone you were with for a long period of time, it’s natural for them to pop into your head. It’s natural to miss them. It’s natural to be tempted to reach out and talk to them again, even if common sense warns you that’s the worst thing you could do. When you break up with someone you love, erasing them from your phone is much easier — and quicker — than erasing them from your memories. Even when they are the last thing you want to think about, you are going to keep finding more and more reasons to think of them. You are going to see commercials and hear songs and smell cologne that …

Miley Cyrus Sings Hilary Duff & ‘High School Musical’ Classics! – Perez Hilton

We love it when Miley Cyrus gets nostalgic. Usually that means the Wrecking Ball singer gives us some Hannah Montana cosplay or throwback pics with proud poppa/still number one mullet of all time champ Billy Ray Cyrus. But on Tuesday Mileybird went for a different kind of nostalgia. Yes, it was still over the pop culture of the 2000s, but this time it was showing love for other Disney Channel stars of the time. Photos: Miley Stirs Up Controversy With Joshua Tree Pics In a series of videos on Twitter, Miley rides in the backseat and has her own private episode of Carpool Karaoke.

Im Slowly Learning The Power I Have Over My Own Life

Erin Cinney Updated April 21, 2019 By Pixabay I’m slowly learning that the only person I am responsible for is myself. A notion that is easy to understand in theory, but takes experience to understand it in practice. I am not responsible for how other people feel about me, my decisions, or who I am as a person. I’m slowly learning that being highly empathetic does not mean I’m required to heal anyone else. That will always be an inside job. I’m slowly learning that time is not a contract, and I am at-will in regards to everyone in my circle. I’m learning that it’s okay to move on towards what I feel compelled to because I am not obligated …

Yo-Yo Ma performed a moving concert at the U.S./Mexico border to protest Trump’s immigration policy.

Yo-Yo Ma chose to play one of his Bach Project concerts in the border town of Laredo, Texas for a reason. The Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge, which stretches over the Rio Grande to connect the sister cities of Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, provided the backdrop for Yo-Yo Ma as he played for a crowd of people in Laredo this weekend. The bridge served as the perfect symbol for the renowned cellist’s message: “In culture, we build bridges, not walls.” For the past two years, 63-year-old Ma has been traveling the world with his “Bach Project”—an exploration of the connections between cultures. Performing Bach’s six suites for cello in 36 locations around the world, Ma hopes to share the composer’s …

The Internet Archive has uploaded 450,000 songs collected before Myspaces massive data loss

Last month, it became widely known that Myspace has lost much of the user data uploaded to it before 2016, including potentially millions of music tracks from between 2003 to 2015. This is a significant loss for people who may not have used the site anymore, but took for granted that it would remain an online scrapbook of the years when Myspace was the go-to social network, including for musicians promoting their work. A new collection of MP3s hosted by the Internet Archive, however, may help some users recover lost music (and memories). ANNOUNCING THE MYSPACE MUSIC DRAGON HOARD, a 450,000 song collection of mp3s from 2008-2010 on MySpace, gathered before they were all “deleted” by mistake. https://t.co/oIunuHF7wc includes a …

Boomplay, a Spotify-style music and video streaming service for African music and Africa, raises $20M

While Spotify dukes it out with Apple and other big tech names to target high-end users in mostly developed markets, a startup out of China has raised some money to expand its music streaming business in the massive but still nascent market of Africa.

BBC wants to add 3rd parties to its Sounds app to balance Apple and Spotify dominance in podcasts and music

Earlier this week, the BBC pulled its podcasts from Google’s Podcast app and Assistant platform after determining that it wasn’t getting enough out of the relationship, specifically noting that Google wasn’t providing it with enough audience data and search links to its own sites and services. Today, we get some more context and development on that decision. The U.K. media giant announced it is working on an expansion of its own Sounds app: it’s in talks with other media companies to add their podcasts and live radio streams to it, a move it hopes will help not just the BBC itself but other media owners find some more competitive leverage against not just Google, but also Apple and Spotify — with the …

The Case for Male Birth Control

Hormonal male contraception is not a new idea—in fact, researchers have been working on solutions for men since the pill was invented for women. But early tests around male contraceptives were inconclusive, and as birth control pills exploded, there wasn't as much interest in a male version. A new male contraceptive gel, one that reduces sperm count, could change that. It’s been in the works for more than a decade, WIRED’s Arielle Pardes reports this week, and it looks promising. Even if the gel eventually make its way to pharmacies, though, there may still be societal hurdles to overcome. And survey results are mixed, Arielle tells us on this week’s Gadget Lab podcast: Some men indicate they would be reluctant …
