Raise your hand if you know somebody
who is or has been on psych meds. Ok, you can put your hands down.
That was almost everybody; why? Is it that so many people are
unbalanced? Could it be possible that many are over medicated and
over prescribed? Are we running from issues or does the medication
help us “balance” our response to the rest of the world? The
answers may not be what we want to hear but to make the inquiry
seems, at least, responsible.
Burke and Amy, from the Columbus! Something New podcast, reached out to us about speaking with Chris Shaw from the Topher James and Biscuit Brigade band. He had interviewed with them and it seemed like a good fit for Moving Music. Chris Shaw chose a movie that confronts the delicate balance between over prescribing psychological medication and healing the affected. Presented as a coming of age story with a solid soundtrack, “Garden State” delivers an examination that is honest and telling. Here is our review and discussion about the film and his music.
