MMM: Phil’s Birthday Mess 9/14/14

(Editor’s note: We are playing a little catch up with our play lists. Our apologies for the delays.) Sunday, 14 September 2014 was Phil’s birthday. As such he got to pick all the music for the show.  Twenty-six of Phil’s favorites, from new age to Pagan rock, found their way onto the final play list. With almost six  hours worth of music to pick from, there was a lot that got chopped to fit into a two hour show. Tough choices, but a lot of fun was had by all.

  2. Invocation – Luminous World Orchestra – Moments from the Life Stories of Strangers
  3. Calligraphy – Laura Sullivan – The Gathering II
  4. Andean Blues – Ciro Hurtado – Ayahausca Dreams
  5. Frolik – Matthew Schoening – Narrow Path
  6. New Normal – Adam Andrews – Road to Ambo
  7. Once Around – Ray Spiegel Ensemble – Moksha

  10. I Am Isis – Celia – sampler 2
  11. Prayer for Isis – Omnia – Sine Missione
  12. Witches Tree – Cernunnos Rising – Urban Druid

  16. Herne the Hunter – Pandora Celtica – On Thin Ice
  17. Waiting for John Barleycorn – Murphey’s Midnight Rounders – Swede Hollow
  18. Don’t go Drinking with Hobbits – Marc Gunn – Don’t Go Drinking with Hobbits.
  19. Do Virgins Taste Better Medley – Brobdingabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyznagian Bards – A Faire to Remember

  21. My Karma Broke Down – Three Weird Sisters – Hair of the Frog
  22. Talk Like A Pirate Day – Tom Smith – They Say I Have Talent
  23. Ladies in the SCA – Joe Bethancourt & Leslie Fish
  24. Jabberwocky – Isaac Bonewits  – Avalon is Rising
  25. Jabberwocky – Omnia – Wolf Love
  26. Dagda’s Club – Isaac Bonewits  – Avalon is Rising

#22 was selected because 19 September is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. Following just days after Phil’s birthday, he has an affinity for pirates. Who doesn’t??  #20 was selected for two reasons, a great song and Deb Anderson is the Goddess Mother of both Murphy’s Magic Mess and Lavender Hill on KZUM. She is the host of The Wimmins Show. Each track has a reason for it being on his favorites list, perhaps in a future posting he will explain each choice – or you can ask in comments.

World Goddess Day on the Mess

September 7, 2014 was World Goddess Day. An initiative started by Brazilian Dianic priest Claudiney Prieto.

Sooj has been to Lincoln many times over the years, but this was Betsy’s first time. Featured along with the interview is a selection of music from both of these Goddesses on Earth.

A Messy Blues

ad bannerFor the fifth year in a row Phil cobbled together a Blues program to fill the time slot for Murphy’s Magic Mess on KZUM. Every Labor Day Weekend KZUM preempts all programming for 83 hours of Blues. In the past this has been more of a challenge for Phil and the rest of the Mess, this year was different. The challenge was to whittle it down to two hours of music. Didn’t quite happen that way, he had 2 hours and 27 minutes of music and Murf  joined the fun with another 47 minutes of music. Clearly not everything on their lists got played.

Kate was off for the weekend attending a family gathering. Michelle and her husband stopped in briefly to share the fun of Murf’s birthday.

 

The following is the played list of music.

PMP: Celia, an interactive interview

KaliSara and RevKess decided to try something a little different with this weekend’s edition of PMP. A live, interactive interview with their guest Celia. In this interactive interview the listeners and fans got to help with asking the questions! Though no one braved the lines and called in with their questions, the hosts did receive several questions and suggestions on where to go with the show. To all those who added to the fun, thank you!

Two years and one month ago Celia visited with RevKess on Musica Pagani. That show aired
lived on 10 July 2012. They first connected face to face at her 2012 concert in Omaha, NE at the First Unitarian Church. RevKess reviewed that concert on the Pagan Weekly News on 5 March 2012.

Earlier this summer Celia released the digital version of her new album Shaman Journey, soon to be available on CD through CDBaby. She has toured the new release across the country with 30 concerts in 60 days. Quite the ambitious tour! She’s back home in Prescott, AZ with her partner Charlie who also went on tour with her. The album is the first in a series of Sound Spirals that Celia has been working, recording her live concerts and taking the best cuts of her newer meditative and energetic pieces to create collections of healing and inspiring music for the listening audience. These Sound Spirals came about as a response to the comments from fans that Celia’s music has taken them on a journey, a seeing, or other voyage of inspiration as well as in response to the requests for music that can be used in meditation, reiki, or other spiritual practices.

Celia spoke in depth about her music, her inspirations, her life, and her love. You’ll have to tune into the archive of the show (click the show logo above) to hear about why she does what she does.

Celia’s Golden Rule: Do unto others as others would have you do unto them.

Celia & RevKess, Omaha 2012

Celia paraphrased singer and songwriter Woody Guthrie during the show, “It’s not how good a song is, it’s how much good a song does.” The full quote from Guthrie reads:

“I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. I hate a song that makes you think that you are just born to lose. Bound to lose. No good to nobody. No good for nothing.Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim too ugly or too this or too that. Songs that run you down or poke fun at you on account of your bad luck or hard traveling.

I am out to fight those songs to my very last breath of air and my last drop of blood. I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world and that if it has hit you pretty hard and knocked you for a dozen loops, no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built.

I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work.”

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.

A Windy Mess – MMM 071314

Its been kind of breezy around these parts the last several days, so Murf thought it would be an awesome idea to use Wind as a theme for this weekend’s show. In the playlist below you will find a collection of mostly “windy” music. This is part of a  monthly series of shows that will address the elements. Expect us to do Fire for August, Water for September, and Earth for October.

With quite a bit of the music in the first hour or so being music that Phil has podcast permission for, you can click on the image to the left to listen to “Selections from the Mess” and hear some of what you might have missed (or enjoyed live) on Sunday 13 July 2014. With any luck, Phil will be able to do these “Selections” on a regular basis again starting with this edition and continuing on. This edition of Selections was edited and posted to the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel on Wednesday 16 July 2014.
