Super Awesome Fun Time With Rand 77: Don’t Close Your Eyes


Internet Archive Link

After doing a Radio Free Caemlyn Project episode last night discussing House of Leaves, I was reading parts of the book and decided to record myself reading the end of Johnny Truant’s narration. I then decided to mix that into a new sound collage.

Here’s what’s included in this sound collage:

“Weightless” – Marconi Union
Atonal drones and pads from Ghosthackery
Clip from MonotoneTim’s first radio show episode, No Soap Radio
“Don’t Close Your Eyes” – Cranes
Mothersbaugh’s Canon, from The Royal Tenenbaums
Passage from House of Leaves, read by me.
“Bless You (The Zen Master’s Diary)” – Darshan Ambient
“White Bur” – Aphex Twin
“All I Bring is Love” – Diane Cluck
“Fly Away” – Poe
Clips from THX-1138
“Breezin'” – Blank and Jones
“Colouration” – Blue States
A Dalek asking if you’d like some tea, from Doctor Who: Victory of the Daleks
“A Drifting Up” – Jon Hopkins

Thank you for listening.

The Return of Radio Free Caemlyn’s On This Day

In what has historically been known as “a really bad idea”, I’ve brought back a podcast project I began several years ago and, to the surprise of no one, abandoned. The project is “Radio Free Caemlyn’s On This Day”, a daily podcast that reviews historical notes and famous birthdays. The plan was to do one episode for each day of the year.

We’ll see how far this project goes. For starters, today’s episode is linked above.
