LUCKY 108.9

Bad luck memories.

My cousin’s longevity.

Wow, slaying technology.

I’m lucky to have a cousin who cares so passionately about the dangers of high UV, mixing music, intoxicating drinks and purifying water before heading out into the desert.

DJ Tony T stuck himself out in the desert one year. Before living in Nashville, before the Hawaiian curse, he lived in Las Vegas. Someone once told me he was a ventriloquist and an old, old man who always wanted to ride an elephant naked. He once saw stacks of funky fluorescent rocks in the desert south of Vegas, but it wasn’t a mirage. There he was in the middle of the desert smoking weed. Tony sat down in front of the quirky rocks, crossed his legs, and meditated. The next morning, the sun crept up over the sand. He survived. Sobering up was annoying for him, not always high as a kite, but he loved clichés.

A year later in his studio apartment on Sahara Avenue, he cranked out the earliest full-length DJ mixes recorded for Lionheart. My cousin found his inspiration from the middle of the desert.

Tony got a little lucky, finished recording at Caesars Palace, and shouted “Fucking Oswald” after a final transmission on one of the casino floors. They escorted him out. Tony whined about it for months.
