Musical Notes:

“Under the Milky Way” is a song by The Church, an Australian band.  The song was released in 1988.  It features a 12-string progressive guitar riff, and a solo that is often mistaken for a bagpipe.  It’s actually an EBow or Electronic bow.  It is a hand-held, battery-powered electronic device for playing the electric guitar.  Instead of having the strings hit by the fingers or a pick,  they are moved by the electromagnetic field created by the device, producing a sound reminiscent of using a bow on strings.  This song was also featured in the 2001 film, Donnie Darko.

I wanted to post the music video which is pretty awesome, but the record company has removed any audio from Youtube.  However, here’s a live performance.  You guys will love the late 80’s outfits.

“Map of your head” is a song by the British rock band, Muse.  This song was released as a B-side to the 2001 single, “New Born.”  Muse is one of Jesse’s favorite bands and Jesse is one of my favorite people.  This one’s for you, Jess.  🙂

    Dear Tiff,
    In the “work ya body” homework assignment, i cant find the answer to number three. i know the answer to b. and c. but not a. the question is what units do we use to measure force. i read the packet. am i missing something here?

    • tifftai says:

      it’s in the packet, but it might not be obvious. In the “Calculating Work” section, you’ll see the examples in Figure 5.
      1st example: W= 80N x 1m = 80J What does “N” stand for? Look in the 2nd paragraph in that section.
      Hope that helps!
