#0058 – IRON DJ – Tabula Rasa


Iron Deejay

The subject of this delinquent-but-still-special mix is John Locke. No, not that Limey philosopher who theorized that the mind is a tabula rasa (blank slate). I’m talking about the character on ABC’s wildly frustrating and popular TV series Lost. Season whatever just closed with some major revelations about my boy John. Like the show, this mix deals in flashbacks, semi-present island time, and, if you’re lucky, flash forwards. But mostly, it doesn’t make sense. Beware that this mix contains spoilers.

      #0037 – McRib Discontinuations and Other Heartbreakers


      Guest DJ Scott: I don’t know about you, but the long distance dedications made me sick to my stomach. Except for the one to Kevin.  That was sweet. Valentine’s Day is really about pain and loathing. I’m talking about unrequited love, unending regret, burning jealousy. In this playlist, we’ll celebrate life’s tragedies. 

      So cuddle up with your favorite woobie, grab a box of Kleenex, and listen to some of my favorite agonizing tunes.
