♩ Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture ♫

According to this article, wiggling your eyes back and forth can help your memory. Who’da thunk it?!

People read these articles all the time on the internet. Typical reaction: “Huh! How about that?” Then you read the next article.

Well, I decided I would use try to put this little bizarre tidbit to work for me. A few days ago, I was at a karaoke thing (“event”?) and I was trying to remember the artist that performs the song “Toxicity”, a song with a lot of desperate yelling, which I of course very much enjoy. I could remember they were Armenian, thanks to frequent mention by Adam Carolla on Loveline, but I couldn’t remember the name.

So I wiggled my eyes back and forth for a few seconds – maybe 15 seconds. And it came to me. “System of a Down”. The song was not in the book, but hey, I validated a new memory trick.

Try it yourself next time something’s on the tip of your tongue. Look left, look right, repeat. You have nothing to lose but your dignity.

  1. …which you’ve lost already.

    Wasn’t that you who phoned in on last week’s Loveline show?

    I always thought Adam was much funnier than the over-rated Jimmy Kimmel.

    Forget Loveline. I miss the Man Show.
