“He can heal leopards.”

I’m in a weird mood. 😉  I’m so glad it’s finally cooled off; it means I can sleep under my weighted blanket again. I’ve been moving things around to prepare for winter.  I rearranged my synthesizer rig so I can experiment while sitting, standing, or bouncing on a fitness ball.

It’s modular due to often adding more, and changing out which ones are hooked up.  My brain insists I audition a gazillion different sounds and note my favorites before I can even consider creating.  I have a strong need to know what my equipment can do before I allow it to become part of my music.

It amuses me to have such a tedious, time-consuming methodology as an amateur musician.  You’d think I was preparing to create an epic symphony or something.  I imagine if I live long enough to master this process, I’ll probably use my hard-won skills to create the definitive sound of a Gigantosaurus fart. Or something.  🙃

Afterlife interviewer:  So what did you do with your life?

Me:  (beaming) I’m the one who decided what dinosaur farts sounded like after they were extinct.

Afterlife interviewer:  (pause) Cool!

Me:  IKR!

Gettin’ Grown podcast this week (Daddy Lessons) was fabulous.  Hey Fran Hey, from The Friend Zone, and Crissle from The Read were guests.  I loved their explanations of what healing means; how it’s an ongoing process that requires maintenance (forever.)  They were also completely open about father-daughter relationships.

I laughed so hard despite the emotionally charged topic.  I have no idea how these (chosen) sisters managed to make it so funny, yet incredibly helpful in understanding my dad relationship.  I’m happy I found these podcasts.  Crissle and Kid Fury have a TV show now!  (FUSE, Oct. 11th, 11 PM.)

I can’t wait.  😆 I added two more podcasts:  3 Questions with Andy Richter, and Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend.  I highly recommend all these podcasts.  However, don’t listen to them in public unless you’re comfortable laughing your ass off in front of strangers, who don’t know why you’re laughing.  (Based on experience, I can’t stress this enough.)

Welp, I’m off to play with my synthesizers.  Those dinosaur fart sounds aren’t going to make themselves (anymore.)  💜✌
