Gods And Robots by Adrienne Mayor

A great book for your January lock-down-slow-down-extra-reading-time reading list. This one is a mind blower, let me just start with that. It’s about how the ancients had concepts of, fears of and encounters with robots, yes robots, exactly as we do today. Sounds crazy, right? Wrong. It’s history kids, and it’s fascinating. Adrienne Mayor writes so beautifully and makes it all so easy to understand. I’m giving this one five golden feathers for quality, five mushrooms for trippy-ness and factor of mind blown plus an extra plus for all the sex, drugs, power struggles and general drama involved. That’s our highest rating ever! I bought the hard cover because it’s better – FIND IT HERE. For those of you who can’t stop doing other things but still want to know about it, you can watch a youtube in the background wherein Adrienne gave insight into some of the things in her book – WATCH IT HERE.

Let this automated recording clue you in.

Adrienne is my new hero, I mean my ancient hero, I mean not that she’s ancient, I mean I feel really old myself most of the time, I mean….nevermind. Its a great book. You should read it.

I Too Believe These Things

I now accept Liza Minnelli as the one true daughter of Goddess and as my personal savior. As I put on this second hand black sequin jacket, I can honestly say that I feel “Worn Again.” God bless the living memory of Miss Judy Garland and God bless glitter, including all the little beads on all the red pant suits….individually. I promise to do everything with pizzazz from this day forth and to always rehearse responsibly. From the holy trinity of dance, song and drama, entertainment everlasting without end, In Judy’s name we spray, Gaymen.

DREW DROEGE

I think I’ve seen enough not to miss any more Drew Droege or Mitch Silpa tweets, ever. Thanks to Squirrel 1 for the tip on this nut.

A DEFMIX Tribute Mix Featuring Early ’90s House

This is mix number one. I started it five years ago. Yeah. Thanks and gratitude to Duke Todd who came over and ripped all these tracks from the vinyl. I guess everything is online these days, but you know what?…You have to know what to look for, darling. Uh huh. Odd unsung mixes that are better than the A sides. Duke’s got em all…

These vibes are Sound Factory Bar, Redzone, The Sound Factory, Derek at the door, Frankie or David in the booth and everybody else on the floor…like ON the floor. These are the tracks that somebody stole your coat to ( you’re still pretty sure it was a ‘ganza.) KIDDING. Calm down, kids. Hey!…NO TOUCHING. You will be chopped. These are the tracks that I danced to with Kevin Hertzog before I knew him.

I’m starting mix number two so hopefully that should be uploadable by 2025. ….it’s just that I care sooooo much about the music. I have to be SURE it’s right…but I am pressed up inside LOGIC and learning hard. It’s hard. I spent all day today in headphones….and very little else actually. OH!

Remember dancing??? I wish I could.
