Today I played 69 love songs from Magnetic Fields since a long time with moody songs like The book of love (is long and boring), I think I need a new heart, I don't believe in the sun. This first half hour was a perfect follow up.
  Fri. 3/31/17 3:36pm modchick65:

@fred - Cool. I'm really looking forward to the new episodes. Not sure when they start, but really eager for it. I didn't watch all the episodes back in the day (I was in college and had other stuff going on), but just started watching them a few months ago (with my mom, who doesn't really pay attention to the TV when it's on, but she's been ENTRANCED -- it's HILARIOUS). Anyway, I've become so enthralled with the vibe of the show. Really, really great.

...Yes - ♒Aquarius is the Fixed Air Sign. The Fixed signs are the ones in the middle of each season - & focus energy & represent their Elements. ♒Aquarius is the Knower, bears the Water - pours it out for Everyone - & is followed by ♓Pisces - the Fishes who swim in that water - & represent Belief (Belief follows Knowledge)...THe Air Element Signs have to do w/ abstract thot, communication & socialization - the Water signs w/ feeling & intuition...
The 'Ages' in Astrology actually go backwards thru the Signs - called Precession...so - oddly, the Age of Knowledge is now following the Age of Belief...

The Man in the High Castle (1962) is an alternative history novel by American writer Philip K. Dick. Set in 1962, fifteen years after an alternative ending to World War II, the novel concerns intrigues between the victorious Axis Powers—primarily, Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany—as they rule over the former United States, as well as daily life under the resulting totalitarian rule.

I also do not get John Myer. Seems like he has bedded a lot of ladies. Doesn't make him very special in my mind. And def not talented in any way!

Oh wow....thank you @maestroso + @? + @Parq. What wonderful words!

@djsheilab, long time listener, first time commenter. Any love for the 60s-70s ladies from Korea? I snagged this awesome album when checking out the underground vinyl market . https://i.ytimg.com/vi/StA4Y7VIQvo/hqdefault.jpg
