This month's playlist is a compilation of stoned-out summer jams meant for lying in the sun like the Gila monster. The Gila monster has been in the news lately because research of its venom has led to the creation of Ozempic, a so-called miracle drug that has stopped binge eating, smoking, and really any malady or social ill that's been thrown at it so far. The venom contains a hormone similar to a hormone in the human body already, but it regulates hunger and degrades at a rate four times slower than the human hormone. While the craze of Ozempic sweeps Hollywood and is mentioned regularly on podcasts and social media feeds, the side effects include a more rapid breakdown of lean muscle mass and bone density. It breaks down for everyone over 30, but at some point in your twilight years, it breaks down faster and faster. Ozempic might make you look hot now, but you could have the bone density of a 75 yr old at 35. We're just not sure. Ozempic, without insurance to cover it, costs almost $900 a month. At that point, I'd rather let the US's only venomous lizard bite me. Nobody's died from a Gila monster bite since the 1930s. In the grand scheme of things, you're not getting away from Father Time. This is music for sitting back, sipping a cool drink through a straw on a hot summer day, and watching the world try to outrun the inevitable.
