The Cultdom Collective Commentary hiatus is nearly over, with production set to resume a week from today. Rand has a week to complete his commentaries on the 2016 X Files miniseries. Or maybe there’s no real deadline.

Super Awesome Fun Time With Rand 53: Collage Hassle

For this collage, I gave myself a simple challenge: using only a single song, make an hour-long collage. I chose Lou Reed’s “Street Hassle”, which I’ve heard collaged on KLERE before.

Truth be told, I got half an hour into it, maybe 40 minutes into it, and was bored and wanted to be done with it.

Should only have been half an hour.

Was still fun to make, though.

RFC Commentaries: My X-Files Struggle

With Cultdom Commentaries seemingly a thing of the past, I decided to go it alone and record a commentary on something. I’ve decided to focus on the 10th season, the 2016 miniseries, of The X-Files.

So, here’s my commentary on the first episode, “My Struggle”, in which I take on Ian and Dave’s roles along with my own. For anyone who wanted to hear just me talk over an episode of something, here’s your chance.

If you’d like to join me on a future commentary, either leave a comment here, email me at radiofreecaemlyn at gmail, or comment on Twitter at radiofrecaemlyn.

Super Awesome Fun Time With Rand 48: Through Broken Glass

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.

On this sound collage, I took a page from youarelistening.to and combined ambient music tracks with local scanner recordings.

Ambient music tracks used include Wolkenreise by Eroc, Missing by Everything But the Girl, Cat People by unknown, The Dining Rooms by M. Dupont, Autumn Hill by unknown, Small Memory by unknown, Neurotransmitter by Carbon-Based Life Forms, Cut Up Piano and Xylophone by Fridge. Not in that particular order, though.
