JD's Blog, a place where sight and sound have no meaning, where time and space are illusions, and where a DJ posts his slightly off-kilter take on this, that, and the other thing.
 
I've loved radio since I was a kid and consider myself extremely lucky to get paid to do it. I'm a 2002 graduate of the DC campus of the Connecticut School of Broadcasting, I play several musical instruments and write books for fun. And I'm a huge fan of the Philly teams: the Phillies, Eagles, Flyers and Sixers.

Get on the Boat

There was a song out around 15 years ago called "Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen." It was a surprise hit, and an odd one at that. It wasn't so much a song as a spoken word piece set to music, the brainchild of movie director Baz Luhrman.

In the song, a man dispenses nuggets 'o' wisdom and general life advice, one of which gives the piece its title: wear sunscreen.

Last week at the beach I was reminded once again how important this is, a reminder that is now resurfacing as I peel dead skin off my limbs in alarmingly large pieces. I forgot the sunscreen my first day on the beach and am now living with the legacy of that forgetfulness: a nice red uneven sunburn. The next time I was out there I remedied the situation but by then the damage was done.

So yeah, wear sunscreen. The alternative is painful. Cheers.
