Guest DJ Project: Seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones shakes to Rolling Stones

Posted November 21, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 755 views]

When I moved to Los Angeles in 2000, Lucy Jones quickly became a familiar name to me.
As I was new to “shaker” territory, I consumed everything I could about it. I also worked in a newsroom and, when anyone had a question about earthquakes, they went directly to Dr. Lucy Jones.
She studies seismic waves for a living and she quickly makes the connection with …

Dita told us she’s a “girl’s girl,” which I got right away. And she’s not a huge fan …

Posted May 14, 2011 by | 1 Comment | 4,130 views]

Most people who see Andy Sandberg’s name immediately think comedy. But he’s actually one of those rare talented folks who can take comedy and crossover successfully into music. (though Donald Glover claims Lil Wayne is hilarious and Mike Birbiglia says the same about Bob Dylan)
His musical skits are easily the highlight of Saturday Night Live and he now has a second album coming out …

Donald Glover is funny. Whether you love him as his rapper alter ego Childish Gambino, as the star of NBC’s Community or for his work as a writer on 30 Rock, he has a distinct – and hilarious – point of view in his work.
After his Guest DJ Project set, I have a much better idea where it came from and how much music …
