Remember This - the very first song of 2002 that was put up on this site was Sinch's "Tabula Rasa" (tis good general knowledge to have, and it will come up in a contest in the future) So, have you listened to it yet? An MP3 of the track is still sitting pretty in our MUSIC section. Sinch. "Tabula Rasa". If you remember, back when we first put this track on the site, we added a very very random side note...saying the words "Tabula Rasa" are actually Latin. AND, like most all Latin words, they are the base for our English language. Can you guess what "Tablula Rasa" means? In the English language, the word 'table' came from the Latin 'tabula', and 'raze' (meaning to erase or demolish) comes from the Latin 'raza'. Put them together and "Tabula Rasa" translates to "blank slate" or "clean slate". Well, as promised, we have a couple words from the band on our Latin lesson. When we asked if any of the above was correct, Sinch drummer Dan wrote the following: Yeah..."clean slate" or "blank slate" is right. More specifically: 1-a. The mind before it receives the impressions gained from experience. b. The unformed, featureless mind in the philosophy of John Locke. 2. A need or an opportunity to start from the beginning. learn something new every day. Once again, hit up our MUSIC section and check out the new material from Sinch. For those of you in the Philly area, word has it that 94.1 fm WYSP will be rocking out to this song on Sunday night (01/13)on their Exposed show at 9:00pm.
