154: “I Only Know (What I Know Now)” by James Blake

Normal Joe, Otherworldly Sounds.Here’s some wild new music from a young man named James Blake.

This is not the U.S. tennis player, but a British electronic composer.  His debut studio album is dropping in the UK this month.

And in unrelated, supplemental news: Learn about an effect you’ve likely never heard of, even though you can probably name several people, perhaps even individuals just feet away from you now, who illustrate the effect quite well, from Wikipedia:

The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled people make poor decisions and reach erroneous conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the metacognitive ability to appreciate their mistakes. The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their ability as above average, much higher than it actually is, while the highly skilled underrate their own abilities, suffering from illusory inferiority. This leads to the situation in which less competent people rate their own ability higher than more competent people. It also explains why actual competence may weaken self-confidence. Competent individuals falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding.

Constantly re-evaluate your perception of reality.  But be sure to enjoy.
