Drum Machines Make Holes in your Soul

This FiloVision mix is for those of you who have a hole in your soul because you don't appreciate metronome maestros. There is still a chance for you to find sequenced salvation. I saw one of John Wood's "Drum Machines Have No Soul" bumper stickers displayed in full sincerity on a Volvo driving through the North End. Probably the driver is a luthier. No offense to my hick music friends. Or maybe the Volvo driver really was John!

I'm glad my soundcard was acting up and glitched the mixing to death. See, that's authentic. Do not fear precision or irregularity. Bring on the soul drilling, crusty beatz.

Coronal Mass Ejection

So was your cell phone or GPS coverage hampered by the solar wind storm that hit last week? Did you see the Northern Lights? Me neither. I went out looking for evidence and saw a few meteors. Tonight there should be a few stragglers. Last night was supposed to be the main swarm of Perseid meteors. I did notice how glorious the sun was today after that little cold front. Let's all go out and bask tomorrow in the 100 degree heat for one last hurrah before the "touch of fall" descends on us.

Here's some Sun songs for ya'!
