August 19, 2011

Summer this year was ferocious, full of worldwide heat waves and rave riots in Hollywood (pictured above) and hockey riots in Vancouver and opportunistic consumer riots in London and more legitimate civil unrest on several continents and the discovery of running salt water on Mars by a college sophomore and imaginary stress from stock market crashes and real stress from salary cuts and slashed budgets and various pestilent plagues and signs in front of the downtown L.A. Walgreen’s screaming “SCABIES TREATMENT HERE!” in bold red letters. This mix is intended for a slowly cooling back porch at 7 p.m., just after the sun goes down, just before your best friend comes over and says, “It’s gonna get better, girl. Ride it out.” and then hands you a cold beer and sets up a slip-n-slide in the backyard and offers to buy you fish tacos.
