The Great Gig In The Sky

It's been many years ago and seemingly galaxies away since my last astronomy lesson. My Sunday trip to the newly revived Griffith Observatory in the Hollywood Hills reminded me that we are all made of stars. Where have I heard that one before? Ah, yes...that Moby song. Gazing one-hundred & eighty degrees over the city of Angels makes you think how small we all really are in the grand scheme of things. For a brief moment, all that seems overwhelming and insurmountable in your little bubble makes you focus on the big picture. Sometimes, we need these little reminders because we aren't the center of the universe. We are all made of stars and all that above us is just a great gig in the sky.

Zenyatta Mondatta

One of my all time favorite albums garners one of the most obscure titles in album title land. During my morning commute, my trusty iPod shuffled to Zenyatta Mondatta tracks. After having a split second flashback to 2004 when I picked up this musical masterpiece from Amoeba Records in Hollywood, I began to wonder, what on earth is a Zenyatta Mondatta? Besides the fact that it's a cool pairing of words, but what does it mean? Stewart Copeland explains, "It means everything," [Copeland] yelled back. "It's the same explanation that applies to the last two. It doesn’t have a specific meaning like ‘Police Brutality’ or ‘Police Arrest’, or anything predictable like that. Being vague it says a lot more. You can interpret it in a lot of different ways. It’s not an attempt to be mysterious, just syllables that sound good together, like the sound of a melody that has no words at all has a meaning." Well, I guess ZM beat the runner up title, Trimondo Blondomina, meaning...3 blondes and the world. I'm glad the Police went with ZM. But, hey, they could have named it anything and it'd still be one of the best reggae and punk playlists out there.
