Dr. Oliver Sacks

…is one of the most incredible humans I’ve ever had the pleasure to know (from afar). I’ve read his incredible The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat (need a summer book? Get it, you can’t go wrong) while at school, where Sacks lives. And I cried when I saw the movie Awakenings, back in 1994, when I hadn’t cried, like, ever—I was a tough young man, then, or so I thought.

Here he is with my newer idol, Jon Stewart, talking about Music and The Brain. Video:
