THEIA

[noun]

Greek mythology: Theia “goddess” or “divine” (sometimes written as Thea or Thia), also called Euryphaessa “wide-shining,” was a Titan. The name Theia alone means simply, “goddess”; Theia Euryphaessa (Θεία Εὐρυφάεσσα) combines the concepts of width (εὐρύς, eurys, “wide”, root: εὐρυ-/εὐρε-) and brightness (φάος, phaos, “light”, root: φαεσ-).

MODERN MYTHOLOGY - Selene 

Goddess of the moon

According to the poet Hesiod, Selene was the daughter of Hyperion and Theia, sister of Helios, the Sun and Eos the Dawn. Other sources claim she was the child of Pallas and Euryphaessa. Selene, the eternally beautiful goddess of the Moon, was usually represented as a woman with the moon, often in crescent form on her head and driving a chariot pulled by two white horses. At night, she rose from the ocean and with her chariot and rode through the sky.

This was the best gig of my career so far. It wasn’t my best playing ever. I was nervous and there were higher stakes than usual. But it was a fucking cool night. I’ve never had so much fun on stage. The room was packed and the crowd was super supportive. I loved it. I’ll be back Thursday April 28 at 7:00. Mark your calendar.

Jan 11, 2016 - Arlington, VA - Galaxy Hut

I had never played a show really fucking sick until this night. It was bizarre. It was kinda like my brain was manufacturing free drugs but I had taken too many and was about to freak out. Afterward I got a hotel in Baltimore that required valet parking and cost me a small fortune. I was too sick to care. 

Everyone at Galaxy Hut was fantastic per usual. I’m sure I would have had a really wonderful time if I hadn’t wanted to curl up in a ball so much. 

Someone requested The New New Colossus, which I thought was pretty awesome.
