the new sheila divine disc

the new sheila divine disc is in-hand, amaz­ing­ly… (due in stores 20 march) the title track came out beau­ti­ful. the record is a lit­tle bit dif­fer­ent than the debut, but there is some­thing for every­body. the vocals and gui­tars are more lay­ered, and it’s mixed real­ly well… ‘Anti­dote’ gets a real­ly cool treatment…

The Mastermind | Submissive Introvert Abstract Thinker

Appar­ent­ly, I’m the mas­ter­mind… a Sub­mis­sive Intro­vert Abstract Thinker…

Like just 9% of the pop­u­la­tion you are a MASTERMIND (SIAT). You can be silent and with­drawn, but behind your reserved exte­ri­or lies an active mind that allows you to ana­lyze sit­u­a­tions and come up with cre­ative, unex­pect­ed solu­tions. Nor­mal peo­ple call this “schem­ing.” Don’t learn German.

Any­way, your sense of style and orig­i­nal­i­ty are your strengths, and peo­ple will respect your judg­ment once they get to know you. If you learn to be a lit­tle more per­son­able, you could be a great leader—you’ve def­i­nite­ly got the “vision” thing down. Just make sure all the plot­ting you do behind those eyes of yours is healthy.

Famous mas­ter­minds in tele­vi­sion: Dr. Claw, The Scare­crow and Mrs. King, Mont­gomery Burns.

There are voic­es in the Repub­li­can Par­ty today who preach prag­ma­tism, who cham­pi­on con­cil­i­a­tion, who coun­sel com­pro­mise. I stand here today to reject those decep­tions. If ever there was a time to unfurl the ban­ner of unabashed con­ser­vatism, it is now.”
