Three unusual things that made me smile happened today. First, and best, Sarah told me that for the second time she was listening to Grooveshark and our song “Superhero” came on. W00t! Happily, we didn’t get the awkward Spinal Tap “in the ‘where are they now’ file” DJ line, and that is definitely our most radio-friendly song. I’m still really happy with how that one turned out (including the improv in the middle, and how much Noah improved my initial concept for the song).
We got a perfect basic track of a better arrangement of “Best Day” last week, leaving Patrick’s “March of the Octopus” as the only basic track left; then it’s the twelve million hours of overdubs, corrections, and mixing, baby! Easy-peasy.
Second, Coyote shows that the number of breweries in the US is at a 125-year high. In the words of a great American character, “To alcohol! The cause of… and solution to… all of life’s problems.”
And then there’s this bit of WTF from 1952, which will henceforth be my example of how far society has come with regard to issues of gender equality, patriarchy, and the like. I give to you Mystery in Space!
It’s worth remembering that many current assumptions weren’t always so.
