This terrifying edition of Super Awesome Fun Time With Rand is a mix of Philip Glass compositions and real life settings.
It all begins with the start of Harry Chapin’s “Taxi” looped, which transitions to Pascal Pinon’s “Why Can’t I Sleep”. We hear from Phil Lapsley on C-SPAN’s BookTV talking about his book “Exploding the Phone”. This is interrupted by a famous clip from John Carpenter’s movie “They Live”. Aimee Mann’s “You Do” is looped for a brief, fleeting moment, giving way to “Into the Night” from the Twin Peaks soundtrack, by way of Angelo Badalamenti. Ken’s Last Ever Radio Extravaganza is heard talking about gravity being another way for fate, life can be as simple as a fall, it’s all so easy once you let go. We’ve got a QSL check from the SWLing Blog. Then we get to the Philip Glass set, with tracks from the “Koyaanisqatsi” album, with some Einstein on the Beach. We briefly hear the theme from Richard Hoagland’s “Other Side of Midnight” radio show. We then have clips from Terry Gilliam’s movie “Brazil”. Couldn’t stand the paperwork. Hidden within all of this is audio from when I met with an old friend I’ve not seen in 12 years. It all crashes down into Boards of Canada and more Philip Glass.
I have created art in honor of an artful person.
