Well, the Summer lull in posting has long since abated. Now, anyone can encounter a veritable flood of new bootleg mixes posting by the moment. A pal of mine posted his new track, & it was at the top of the page for his hosting. I saw that & wrote him. By the time he got there 23 minutes later, he was around 24 posts down the page. WoW! So, in this age of cookie cutter combinations, generic dj names, & massive competition, how is the home producer to thrive?
I like to think people follow a great producer when they discover one, but that's often the exception. In my case, I've managed after years to accrue a good bit of regulars who come right to my blog to get the ever-flowing amount of useo stuff. Otherwise, listeners come from what you mixed, not who you are as the mixer. I like to test the waters, & fish for new listeners, so I vary up the content.
Frank Bruni: The Myth of Quality Time (NY Times)
… people tend not to operate on cue. At least our moods and emotions don't. We reach out for help at odd points; we bloom at unpredictable ones. The surest way to see the brightest colors, or the darkest ones, is to be watching and waiting and ready for them.
Andrew Tobias: The Republican Reasoning On Iran
Imagine if the world had brought Hitler to the table before he invaded anyone and worked out a deal under which he had to get rid of two-thirds of his heavy weaponry - the most advanced two-thirds at that - and 98% of his ammunition. And agree to 24/7 surveillance of all his known arms factories and arsenals - his entire military supply chain. Would John Nelson have rejected that deal as not worthwhile? As pro-Nazi in some way? Or might that deal have prevented World War II and saved tens of millions of lives?
Electricity would remain little more than an intellectual curiosity for millennia until 1600, when the English scientist William Gilbert made a careful study of electricity and magnetism, distinguishing the lodestone effect from static electricity produced by rubbing amber. He coined the New Latin word electricus ("of amber" or "like amber", from elektron, the Greek word for "amber") to refer to the property of attracting small objects after being rubbed. This association gave rise to the English words "electric" and "electricity", which made their first appearance in print in Thomas Browne's Pseudodoxia Epidemica of 1646.
Amber is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Much valued from antiquity to the present as a gemstone, amber is made into a variety of decorative objects. Amber is used as an ingredient in perfumes, as a healing agent in folk medicine, and as jewelry.
Electrifying Lois Of Oregon said:
Way back before the internet, people had to make their own fun by rubbing things together! Yes, those were dark days indeed! And they noticed when they rubbed Amber (get her permission FIRST!) it created electricity, which we use today to illuminate the world via cell phones and 80" flat screens! How does this happen? Glad you asked!
Rubbing two things together vigorously brings them into contact again and again, harder and faster, until a phenomenon known as triboelectricity (named for rubbing two tribbles together) produces sparks! All materials are built from atoms, which are surrounded by a fuzzy "cloud" of electrons, especially tribbles! Some atoms, mostly the ones with weight problems, have a more powerful pull on electrons than others! If different materials are put in contact, and one attracts electrons more than the other, it's possible for electrons to be pulled from one to the other. When we separate the materials, the electrons jump to that which attracts them most strongly, such as Tom Selleck's chest. As a result, one of the materials has gained some extra electrons (and becomes negatively charged, such as myself) while the other material has lost some electrons (and becomes positively charged and just annoying to be around). And that is why when you drag your feet
across a carpet, rub a chunk of Amber, or have sex with a republican, you receive a disturbing shock!

Amber of the electros. Goldwater would have nuked churches?

LSD, magic mushrooms and ecstasy are well known street drugs not usually associated with medical treatment. But that could be changing.
In a new article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, researchers examine the therapeutic effects of these substances on people with mental disorders, ranging from addiction to depression, anxiety and PTSD.
It was research that was pioneered in the 1950s and conducted through to the 70s, but eventually fizzled due to the condemnation of illegal substances and the subsequent war on drugs.
Psilocybin, the main compound in magic mushrooms, is currently being studied for its effect on the reduction of end-of-life anxiety and the treatment of tobacco addiction.
A recent study on tobacco addiction treatment, showed an 80 per cent cure rate at six months "which blows our existing therapies out of the water," Wood said.

Queen Elizabeth, who ascended the throne aged just 25 as her exhausted country struggled to recover from the ravages of World War Two, makes history on Wednesday when she becomes Britain's longest-reigning monarch.
At about 5.30 p.m. (1230 ET), Elizabeth, who now aged 89 is also the nation's oldest ever monarch, will surpass the 63 years, 7 months, 2 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes that her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria spent on the throne.
Those close to the queen say she is fairly blase about the milestone, believing it represents little more than the fact she has lived for a long time.
Initially she did not even intend to mark the event publicly, but she has bowed to public pressure and will now undertake an official engagement in Scotland, where she traditionally spends her Summer holiday.
The French government on Tuesday condemned two mayors who said they would only take in Christian refugees, as the country prepares to receive the first tranche of some 24,000 migrants.
"You don't sort (refugees) on the basis of religion. The right to asylum is a universal right," Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday evening, hours before some 200 are expected to arrive from Germany.
Under pressure to respond to Europe's biggest migrant crisis since World War II, President Francois Hollande announced Monday that France would take in 24,000 people over two years.
As a first gesture of solidarity with Germany, which is shouldering the lion's share of the new arrivals, France will rapidly take in 1,000 Syrians, Iraqis and Eritreans, he said.
But the decision caused unease in some quarters, and the mayor of the central town of Roanne, Yves Nicolin, said Monday he would only take in Christians in order to be "certain they are not terrorists in disguise".
An Oregon judge who refused to perform same-sex marriages is facing multiple complaints in a state ethics investigation, including that he put up a picture of Adolf Hitler in the Salem courthouse, a state judicial commission said on Tuesday.
Marion County Circuit Court Judge Vance Day is facing an ethics review for screening wedding applicants for gay couples and then refusing to perform the marriages, according to a notice by the Commission on Judicial Fitness and Disability.
A U.S. Supreme Court decision in late June legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states, but a small number of elected clerks and lower-court judges have voiced opposition on religious grounds, including Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis who was released from jail on Tuesday after refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
The commission could send the complaint to the Oregon Supreme Court if it finds the judge guilty of violating the judicial code of conduct and the state constitution.
It could also dismiss the complaints, the notice said.
Scientists said they will reanimate a 30,000-year-old giant virus unearthed in the frozen wastelands of Siberia, and warned climate change may awaken dangerous microscopic pathogens.
Reporting this week in the flagship journal of the US National Academy of Sciences, French researchers announced the discovery of Mollivirus sibericum, the fourth type of pre-historic virus found since 2003 -- and the second by this team.
Before waking it up, researchers will have to verify that the bug cannot cause animal or human disease.
To qualify as a "giant", a virus has to be longer than half a micron, a thousandth of a millimetre (0.00002 of an inch).
Mollivirus sibericum -- "soft virus from Siberia" -- comes in at 0.6 microns, and was found in the permafrost of northeastern Russia.

A US Coast Guard icebreaker has carved its way to the North Pole, becoming the first American surface ship to get to the top of the world by itself, officials said Tuesday.
The US Coast Guard Cutter Healy, which is based in Seattle, arrived at the Pole on September 5, the Coast Guard said in a statement.
The rapid melting of polar ice has sent activity in the inhospitable region into overdrive -- as nations eye newly viable oil, gas deposits, mineral deposits and shipping routes like the Northwest Passage.
The Healy's voyage marks the fourth time a US surface vessel has reached the North Pole, and the first to do so unaccompanied. Submarines routinely travel under the Arctic icepack and sometimes surface at the Pole.
The Healy is 420-feet (128-meters) long and weighs 16,000 tons. Its 30,000-horsepower engine is capable of breaking over 10 feet (three meters) of ice.
