I co-founded this group a few months ago - we’re officially kicking off in a week with a progressive build up during our first year. If you 21-35 and work in the arts industry (for/nonprofit) - check us out!
A psychologist at a girl’s college asked the members of his class to compliment any girl wearing red. Within a week the cafeteria was a blaze of red. None of the girls were aware of being influenced, although they did notice that the atmosphere was more friendly. A class at the University of Minnesota is reported to have conditioned their psychology professor a week after he told them about learning without awareness. Every time he moved toward the right side of the room, they paid more attention and laughed more uproariously at his jokes, until apparently they were able to condition him right out the door.

Seems like I always miss the best Tiny Desk Concerts in person. Still kicking myself about Buke and Gass, which made the most memorable list. And it figures I would be on vacation for Low and Fountains of Wayne, two of my all-time favorites.
