The Sound Board #36: The Analog Edition

DIY Cassette Tape USB Drive

This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month's episode is manned by Dr. Rob Levy with Prof. Tuffley manning the turret and Widgett Walls huddled in the sidecar.

This episode's central topic is: mix tapes and curating music. Is it a lost art? Is it the same thing now to create a Spotify playlist? And what about mix CDs? Also, a round-up of summer stuff we liked, we remember Murray Gershenz and Ray Dolby, we look back on twenty years of In Utero and fifty years of cassette tapes, we discuss Miley Cyrus under protest and more.

Also, this is very late going up and you can blame Widge. [Editor's note: Widge did actually type that bit.]

Special thanks to Hyperbubble for our lead-in music. Show them love and buy their stuff.

Wayhomer Review #163: Ender's Game

Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin in Enders Game

It's Episode #163 for Ender's Game, in which our protagonist discusses how having read the book beforehand puts him at a distinct disadvantage, how the world just doesn't appear to be quite coagulated and feels he must mention again how awesome Harrison Ford's Mad Face is.

    Face Your Fears With Black Phoenix

    BPAL Halloween Bat

    Fall has finally arrived here in Florida. Our high temperature was only at the low 70s. Of course, whether it stays we will have to see. Fall tends to fluctuate around here. But the (temporary) chill in the air does help with getting in the mood for the Black Phoenix Halloween perfume lines. So gather around my Halloween people--November or not, it is time to explore the frightening fragrances and supernatural scents from the olfactory occultists of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab.

    32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 32: That's Another One For the Fire

    It's that Night of Nights. Six years in a row, we've given you the original (and only real) Night of the Living Dead. This year is no exception. It's the thing that started the entire zombie subgenre as we know it today. Watch the film. Love it. Give it a nice hug. Without it, you get no Shaun, no Walking Dead, no 28 Days Later. And low budget horror would look completely different. Would somebody else have come up with the transition from Haitian voodoo zombies to flesh-eating ghoul zombies? Oh sure. Would it have gone down the same way? Nowhere close.

    First, let's go to August, where the 45th anniversary of the film brought Johnny and Barbra back to the cemetery where it all started. The video quality is crap, but hey, it's sort of awesome this happened. (The crowd looks really, really thin, doesn't it? Weird. Almost as weird as the fact the vid won't let me center it. Oh well.)

    32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 31: The Corpse Vanishes!

    Yes, we'll interrupt Mr. Lugosi more in just a moment. But first, a pair of audio bits to pass the time on this penultimate night of 32 Days of Halloween: Year 7. The first is The Day the Earth Stood Still, but in a way you've probably never experienced it before: Michael Rennie recreates his role for the radio. This happened often and there's some great performances for posterity snagged this way--in this case, it's for Lux Radio Theater. And yes, "Lux" means light and that sounds like a great name...but you will quickly ascertain that it's named for the soap flake brand. Oh well. But hey, Michael Rennie!

    Also, a short piece of fiction read by Vincent Price from A Hornbook for Witches. It's the John Collier short story Thus I Refute Beezly. Excellent stuff.

    32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 30: Tormented!


    First, we go to the oddly titled radio program from 1944-45, The Strange Dr. Weird. This particular episode, "The House Where Death Lives," first aired on November 7, 1944. If you're short on time, at least listen to the first two minutes so you can hear the non sequitur style of throwing sponsorship messages in wherever you can. It's brilliant.

    32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 29: The Monolith Monsters!

    Monolith Monsters

    Killer rocks are the main course this evening. But first, anytime Saturday Night Live manages to be sublimely funny is a rare occasion that must be celebrated. And yes, you're going to see this everywhere. But there's a reason. It's brilliant. And Edward Norton proves yet again what a masterful actor he is. Seriously.

    32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 28: Legend of the Werewolf!

    Legend of the Werewolf

    We join Peter Cushing for some lycanthropic fun and games momentarily. But first, let's start with something I'm dying to see one of these days: when Disney parks take their Haunted Mansion(s) and mash them up with The Nightmare Before Christmas. Here's a walk-through of this year's iteration...

    32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 27: The Vampire's Ghost!

    Vampires Ghost

    Tonight we go back to 1945. But first, we need to stop off in 2007 for Fear on Four, a BBC Radio 4 show consisting of the usual format: narrator/host (in this case, The Man in Black) introducing you to a spooky story. The story in question is "The Beast With Five Fingers."
