1. The Marshmallow Experiment - Instant Gratification


    from FloodSanDiego / Added

    We ran a duplicate of Stanford University's "Marshmallow Experiment" with our own Flood kids (Google it for the details). If they could delay gratification by sitting in a room alone with one marshmallow until the facilitator got back, they would be rewarded with an additional marshmallow. If they cracked, succumbed to temptation by eating the marshmallow before she returned, they would not be rewarded with an additional one. We hid 2 cameras in the room to watch the hilarious results.

        • Sonic Flux - Instant Generation

          I'm migrating from Youtube as I've grown incredibly tired of the ridiculous over-commercialization of its administration and generally low standards of its users. As such, this is my first upload to Vimeo. I suppose I should share a little about myself as this is my first video here. My name is Cory Jones, but I release my music under the alias Sonic Flux. I'm just a regular guy with a passion for music. I love listening to, creating, and talking with others about music. I've been recording for over 10 years and I feel as though I'm finally starting to develop a sound of my own. My musical style varies greatly from classical to easy listening to electronica. The song structures are reminiscent of ambient music but utilize unusual instrumentation for the genre. I believe that you can create a soundscape with several guitars just as well as with a synthesizer. I sometimes make excursions into the Drum and Bass and Techno genres, but even then with my own particular twist. I come from a generation of the instant. We have to have everything right now. Instant entertainment, instant communication, instant money, instant food, instant satisfaction - instant gratification. We get so caught up in trying to get exactly what we want at this exact moment that we lose sight of the beautiful things in life. We don't take the time to slow down and enjoy a sunset; enjoy the peaceful sound of rain above our heads, we don't stop and smell the proverbial flowers. We become so disconnected from the world and people around us and most don't even notice it - until it's too late. I can't claim innocence in this, but I'm doing my best to change. This was the inspiration for the song. I hope you guys enjoy it. Let me know what you think! I'm greatly looking forward to becoming a member of this community!
