Solipsistic Nation: Acroyear

by smallworld January 21, 2013 solipsistic NATION

Good grief! I had a four-day weekend and it took all four of them to produce today’s show, never mind the hours spent arranging and preparing for the interviews featured on today’s show!

by smallworld November 25, 2012 solipsistic NATION

Today’s show we’ll been listening to noise and sound. Some of it, like Boyd Rice’s Sick Tour, is blistering and could reduce a cinder block to dust in mere seconds. Some of it, like Kingbastard’s “Danlan Speaks” could lull you to a deep, luxurious sleep. Some sounds like the sound of a 56K modem are […]
