  Thanks for listening to this episode of The Dusty Show. I had fun doing the interviews, producing them and then going LIVE and juggling everything together. I appreciate your good response on the Accuplaylist and I love getting your email, too. Drop me a line!


If you don't hear me mention your name regarding emails, please don't be hurt. I do read them ALL and appreciate every one, positive or negative, but, like you I am busy and sometimes I forget to thank you. I'm sorry about that!

Really been enjoying doing shows the last few weeks after a bit of a post-marathon trough. I hope you keep tuning in. I know I lose some of you and new ones (hopefully) come in, but do try and return now and then. It's always good to ear from old friends. Enjoy the rest of your summer. It's going tooooo fast!!!! Much love, peace, and happiness to each of you. Until next time, take care and ... always remember.

...gotta admit - DaveEmory has influenced my thinking on Snowden: He's into Internet Freedom - so he goes to Russia & China ? Huh. Got me thinking.

...Between Genetic Science & I.T. - who knows what is possible in this Century as per Longeviity. Most people die because one organ fails - wull - now they can clone your own cells - not transplant rejection - & print them onto the scaffold of someone else's organ - & make a new organ for you...
...Not to mention Asrtonomy & Exoplanets & Extraterrestrial Life & Intelligence
...I.T. on reading minds: they have put people in FMRI machines & monitored their visual impulses, & had a super-computer analyse it & reconstruct what they are seeing; may eventually be able to record dreams...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm chris:

Yeah, Snowden went to countries that didn't have great extradition treaties with US. That seems logical to me. He was committing "treason" afterall. He didn't take the data with him, apparently...
