Here’s tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM. I lead the program with our spring membership drive, which I explain here, and which Len Wallick explains in this letter going out to our Big List right now.
It’s simple — I can offer you Planet Waves thanks to our subscribers, and a lot of love and energy from the my co-creators. The funding comes from you — not from advertisers, investors, bailouts or Uncle Louie. In this new, beautiful presentation, I describe my idea of what Planet Waves really is.
I can’t believe I missed the most obvious symbol of all — the Moon is in LIBRA, the sign of justice, for the Proposition 8 arguments that were heard by the Supreme Court today. I read that chart in the context of the arguments over whether states should have the right to ban same-sex couples from getting married.
But first I do the chart on its own, explaining what’s in the background — and what is coming to the foreground. If you would like to see that chart, here it is with Monday’s blog post.

Here is Jim Carrey doing his song, Cold Dead Hands, which has gone viral from the site Funny or Die.
