Time Travel has always been my favorite Sci-Fi subject, and I’ve toyed with the subject myself on this very program a few times before. But it is not always a subject that easily translates to music. For some reason, there are just not that many songs about the Grandfather Paradox. Nonetheless, myself and DJ Really Sloppy made a bonafide effort to piece together a short musical tribute to some of the artists that have tackled the subject. Abstractly at times, yes. But you know how it goes.
This episode also marks the introduction of our new studio! Soylent Green Is People Studios has undergone some improvements in the last week, and we’re happy to report that the show now sounds… well, like a radio program. I appreciate the patience that listeners have shows in the last several weeks as we’ve recorded in some less-than-stellar enviorns, and your reward will come in the form of bigger, better, and more impressive sounding shows. I’ve got a slew of new ideas that will be coming your way in the coming weeks, and now we have a good place to create it all from. If you’ve dug what I’ve done in the past, then you know that what’s to come will be right up your ally.
I want to give a special shout out to kiisu d’salyss, who performed much of the backing music that is throughout this episode. kiisu and I have been friends for years, and he’s appeared on this show in a few of the different bands that he’s been in, and as a solo artist. For the music in this particular episode, the music was performed on a Kitara, a computer / keytar / guitar hybrid, manufactured by Misa Digital. I’m hoping to incorporate more of his performances with this instrument in future episodes, and I really want to thank him for his willingness to join the madness that is our show. If you hear something that sounds spacey in this show, it’s him.
This one is short and sweet, just the way these shows used to be. I’m still trying to pin down exactly how long this show is going to be, now that I have the freedom to go as long as I want. For the time being, I’m going to say that I’ll go anywhere between an hour or two, depending on my mood and the theme. But I do have some ideas for some longer programs in the future, so we shall see.
See you in seven.
