Best weather report. Ever.

Thanks! Trying to keep track of all the work I do using this. Like a scrap book!
The other week I had a dream that I was hired to do Mike Leach photoshoot all Annie Liebovitz style. We were at the school president’s house determining if it was logistical for Leach to leap off the balcony on a white horse into a cheering crowd of students.
A few days later I had a dream I got to have a Q&A with a newspaper photographer. I asked, “How do ask people to do their portrait?”
I don’t remember their answer, but what I know is… It would be great to know how to get people to pose for those edgy portrait shots when you’re balancing photojournalism.
How do you ask them?
This was not an easy mix to piece together. I had to cut a few songs to make it work. The three that were cut had too upbeat of a build and downplayed the mood of the whole set. A lot of the pieces are connected by minimal piano or the droning sound of subconscious undertones.
After I submitted this mix late Saturday night, I went to bed. I woke up with 47 new emails of people commenting and liking this playlist. I was shocked. I went to the main website for 8tracks and soon I realized my mix was under “hot playlists”. That explains a lot.
By 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, the mix received 50 likes and over 200 listens.
The theme to this mix demonstrates the contrasting sound of Save the Moon classic. It’s the music I’d listen to on headphones, full blast. You want to fall into the music even if it’s darker for some to handle.

I find it disturbing that I over use the word “whatever” or “whatevers” in random context (or whatever), but then I see aging rock stars use it during interviews and it makes me feel better. Or whatever.
Iggy Pop speaks with New York Times Magazine and answers the following question:
I’m curious how your tour is going. You have a new album, “Aprés,” and you’re out there with the Stooges. You resolved in 2010 that you wouldn’t stage-dive anymore after you had a mishap.
I said that after doing a concert for Tibet at Carnegie Hall, which I did because Philip Glass asked me to. But yeah, I am a little impulsive, and Lenny Kaye was playing “I Want to Be Your Dog” too damned slow, and I just ran out of ideas and I thought, Well, let’s just stage-dive. Nobody caught me, because it was the Carnegie Hall-Tibetan-whatever audience. I was a little miffed. We’ve done two gigs this year, and I haven’t done one yet. Stages are getting higher and higher, and I’m getting older and older.
Also, I see that the magazine uses a special term at the bottom of their story to say “hey, we edited this whatever.” They add in all caps: INTERVIEW HAS BEEN CONDENSED AND EDITED.
Maybe I’ll start using that in my Q & As too.
My weekly routine used to mean that I would compile the best mix of music possible for listeners. They never knew what to expect except some sounds were just so - me. Since that stint in my life is over, I’ve listened to less music. That’s so wrong.
At home, we refer to two version of Save the Moon Radio. Classic or nouveau. Classic meant it was whatever music I felt comfortable listening to no matter who was around and noveau meant whatever was new and charting possibly on college radio stations.
When left to my own devices, I will blast Ennio Morricone or even the Russian Red Army Choir.
I need to blow some steam when it comes to music. Here’s some music I put together that I think you might like if you’re into the same thing.
The above album cover is my little toy tank figurine that I photographed in my backyard and added some edgy textures and whatever else I felt like.
