MMM 6/7/15: Wonders of the Moon & Balance

*Image result for balance of the moonK8 celebrated her birthday recently and Murf and Phil tortured her with Hoppy Birdies early in the show. Sir Fluffy Bunny also dropped in on the Mess after *K8 ran away to brunch with her family. Michelle is under the weather and was unable to join the Mess.

With the recent full moon and Mercury coming out of retrograde, the gang of the Mess thought it would be appropriate to use music that shares the balance of the moon.  Featuring new music from various New Age and Pagan musicians as well as some classic pieces from Murf’s collection, this episode of the Mess brought you some fun and balance in this interesting astrological time.

MMM: A Weird Mess

This week on Murphy’s Magic Mess the Mama Dragon and her minions decided to take a walk on the Weird Side with their music. Starting with Walkin’ in the Woods by Elvendrums they took a path of oddness that hopefully entertained the listeners.

A special note about the third track, Madiba by Ricky Kej and Wouter Kellerman: 18 July was the birthday of the late Nelson Mandela, an inspiration to his people in South Africa and indeed to the world as a whole. Madiba was the name given to him by his people, it means Father. This track comes from the CD Winds of Samsara. Samsara is from the Sanskrit for “cycle of life” or “reincarnation”.

As a tribute to the late James Garner, actor, we played the full TV theme from The Rockford Files.

Morning Glory, the beloved wife of Oberon Zell (founder of the Church of All Worlds) is an avid devotee of the Goddess. She paid KaliSara and RevKess an unexpected visit while they were interviewing Ariel, the editrix of The Green Egg, and Oberon in an episode of Pagan-Musing Podcast in June 2011. She spoke of her Goddess statue collection and Goddess retreats. She entered the ICU with kidney failure and dehydration related to recurring battle with cancer.

Veterans’ Day on the Mess

ad bannerHello, all. I’ve been rather remiss of late when it comes to sharing our play lists and other notes from the shows, both those on PMPChannel and the shows I am involved in on KZUM. We’ll see what we can do to rectify that.

Here is the playlist from Murphy’s Magic Mess on the 10th. It was our Veterans’s Day celebration, so much of the music fits into that theme. It was also one of our SoundExchange tracking weeks, so the format of the playlist is taking straight from the tracking spreadsheet. I had the pleasure of selecting the music, and these 20 tracks are just half of what I selected. We also had a nice little visit with Josh Bivins of UNL Pagan Life, the Pagan student group at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Mess Play List for 051913

Murf's Blue DragonMichelle from the Red Grail visited Murf, Kate and Phil at the studio this morning. She brought in a lovely little blue dragon statue for Murf. Would seem that the fae had been playing around with Michelle’s figurine collection and knocked the dragon shelf off. The dragon was perfectly up right, but the shelf was on the floor as at an angle. Now the little dragon is sitting at Murf’s home along with all her other dragon friends.
