Check Out The Hugs In Interview Magazine!

When The Hugs were living in London, England we went to visit Gus Van Sant at AIR studios in London and met up with him and watched the last minute of "Milk" being scored with a full piece orchestra. It was a delight, beyond that we also had the pleasure to have our photo's taken and an article in Interview Magazine. Go grab a copy off news stands now!

The Smartest Man in the World?

This is Chris Langan. 


Formally a bouncer at a bar, he now owns and operates a horse ranch in northern Missouri. When he's not refilling chicken feed, he's spending his down time theorizing his Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe, (CTMU) which in a simplistic, Wikipedia nutshell, is a "theory of the relationship between mind and reality". 

According to 20/20, after given a thorough IQ test, Chris "broke through the ceiling", scoring an astounding 210! To put that into perspective, the average IQ for the average Joe is more or less around the 100 range. Mental retardation is apparent in the 65 range and lower. That's about a 35 point difference. Chris's score, between the average, is more than 3x that difference!

Whether or not this makes Chris the smartest man in America, or even the world, in accordance to Chris's everyday life, he could care less. When Asked, "Have you ever met anyone smarter than yourself?" his reply was...

 "As near as I can tell no. And if somebody walked up right now and claimed to be smarter than me, I'd put him through his paces. I'd try to find out, how sophisticated a picture of reality he'd evolved. I'd try to see what he was holding in his mind simultaneously and what he could do. I wouldn't give him necessarily an IQ test. I'd look at his productions. Am I capable of understand his productions? Is he capable of understanding mine? If the answer to that were in his favor, than I would have to say 'He's more intelligent than I am.' But that wouldn't necessarily stop me from doing what I have to do. Is he out there? I doubt it. Could be, I don't rule it out. I'm not in complete control of reality."

Here is a full interview from an episode of First Person.

Seinfeld





I have been watching the famous comedy show Seinfeld lately. It's a great show and has some very special plots and funny twists. If you have not dug into the show, I suggest you do now. Season 5,6,7,8 are the best!

I have liked the kooks for a long time, they quite perfectly capture great pop rock music.
Astonishing lyrics and melody's that sing in your head all day.
