Brace yourself for another asteroid flyby
To quote science reporter Deborah Netburn:
It’s 1.7 miles long. Its surface is covered in a sticky black substance similar to the gunk at the bottom of a barbecue. If it impacted Earth it would probably result in global extinction. Good thing it is just making a flyby.
At approximately 1:59 p.m. PDT May 31, Asteroid 1998 QE2 will make a close (by galactic standards) pass by our home planet. Coming within just 3.6 million miles of Earth, the asteroid will be so close that many of its features will be visible on radar.

To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan, and not quite enough time. - Leonard Bernstein
Photographer’s Note: During a safari in the Ngorongoro crater, Tanzania, a group of 9 lions decided to cross the street and walk through the cars, making real chaos.
Dorothy Gambrell illustrates everything you wanted to know about California’s prison labor program, but were afraid to ask. They can only sell inmate-made goods to the state, and if the state cuts back, those prisoners lose their jobs. Jeez, in jail AND laid off? Can this prison sentence get any worse????
Prison labor, once best known for making license plates, has grown to 57 factories doing such work as modular building construction, toner cartridge recycling, shoemaking and juice packaging. Read more at Bloomberg Businessweek

This is my 9 song album/mixtape that I recently produced. It is a journey into my mind, all set to the different moods and atmospheres of Electronic, Blues, Soul, and Hip Hop music that influences me everyday. With this type of digital freedom, it only feels right to give it out for free, so I hope you enjoy.
To my mother, first and foremost. Without her support, I would not be here. To my sister and her husband and kids, and to my whole family for supporting this move and this album.
I want to thank everyone who pitched in to try and make the album the best it could be, even though we didn’t reach our goal, your help was amazing, and I still thank you all so much for that.

I would like to thank all of my friends, and fellow producers for inspiring me and pushing me to new limits every day.
And lastly, I would like to thank the love of my life, Kate, for being the rock I needed at times, and for having faith in me when even I didn’t. You amaze me.
