World War III Radio: Junkie XL – Music From SSX Blur (2007)

It probably wouldn’t have occurred to me at any point in my life up until today that I’d be sitting up on a Saturday morning listening to music composed for a video game, but there you go. Life has its surprises. Music and art have their surprises too. This stuff by Junkie XL is pure fire. Kind of pop/funk/rock with so many influences and not-quite-samples… so much sounds almost familiar. It could even be straight up samples but it’s not anything I can put a finger on. I don’t know. It’s not worth even trying. I’m just going to ride this one out.

Another week down. Again, staring down the barrel of a heatwave. It’s a little cooler today but the forecast has a week straight up into the 90s and at least high 80s for the rest of the month. Hello Global Warming. Good morning Apocalypse. Pleased to meet you. My name is… but let’s cut the small talk. Everyone better get right with Jesus or it’s going to be an interesting couple weeks. Shit has a tendency to heat up in the heat, if you know what I mean. It doesn’t take much to set stuff off. I’m going to keep it mellow and keep my mouth shut. Keep my head low. Low profile. However you want to say it. I’m going to stay quiet. I’m too old for nonsense.

But you can’t take the weather personally. People do, but they shouldn’t. I try not to. Nobody really loves it, so…

Serenity prayer stuff…

God grant me the serenity, to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, AND THE FUCKING WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, OKAK???? WE GOT THAT DOWN????

Okay then. Insert laughing emoji here.

It is what it is.

My life is good. I just have to remember to hydrate, and maybe get some powder to prevent chafing. It’s all good.

And don’t forget to dance.
