Super Awesome Fun Time With Rand 60: The Eternal Now

Internet Archive Link

This may be my first sound collage for 2018, created here in the last half of February. This is the first sound collage I’ve made since migrating content over to the Internet Archive, where this episode will debut. This is a meditation. This is a pause to think, to consider, to rethink, to pontificate. To think in silence and solace.

A thank you to everyone who has been listening since the Great Migration to Internet Archive began.

A list of sources sampled, maybe not in a correct chronological order, follows. It’s an attempt to document what happened tonight.
