DJ Matty Q

So I sent my gift package off to Kris Dikeman at Clarion West today care of the US Postal Service. I insured it, asked for delivery confirmation, and even tore up little pieces of paper and put them in the box to make sure nothing broke. I hope it arrives okay because I made her a CD. I’ll give you a little sneak peak of the track listing because I’m sure she’s too busy writing.

I really like the ordering and selection of the mix, and I chose the particular tracks to blend in with one another. If only you could hear them now…

In other good news, the Hudson Current printed the interview with me today. Unfortunately, I cannot find an online version of it, so I may scan it in and put in on the website. Many thanks to Diania Schwaeble for the whole shebang.

And finally, if you’re looking to listen to some music and support a good cause, the Live 8 concert happens July 6th. The concert intends to raise consciousness about world poverty, and their goals are to convince the G8 to drop their international debt, made trade laws fair, and double foreign aid to the neediest countries. While I find it odd that some of the wealthiest bling-blingers in the world are pushing for poverty relief, it’s about time we all came together to fix this problem. I mean, in a world where McDonald’s delivers a Big Mac and fries to your door in less that fifteen minutes, children should not be starving to death.
