What's Opera, Doc?

Cognitive Daily reports on "what conductors are doing when they wave their hands around -- and what we get out of it."  The research is focused on beat patterns (pretty basic stuff) but what's great about this post is the Bugs Bunny cartoon embedded in the article.  Of course, this led me to spend some time browsing youtube's collection of Loony Tunes.  If it's been awhile, take some time to remind yourself of the importance of classical music in Saturday morning cartoons.  I personally like Long Haired Hare and Rhapsody Rabbit, but there are many to choose from.
