The Long Lightning pt. 5
Part 5 of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as narrated by Bjor6n Oranj. Abstract poetry read out loud because...because...BECAUSE seeking kitten righteousness about tomorrow will wrestle itself if barracuda has enough truck stop of its own. Because after a long and difficult presidency, no cognac but only an ambrosia dork like a giant wrench stenographer squanders moss like a physicist.  Because this is an afternoon orgy more than a choirmaster.

The Creeping Man Refutes Björ6n Oranj
Lies. Misconceptions. Exaggerations. The Creeping Man has some problems with some fabrications allegedly proclaimed by Björ6n Oranj. The Creeping Man refutes and takes the witness stand to tell his side of the story. You'll notice his hand was not on the Bible. Along the way, while telling his tale, The Creeping Man weaves in some historical reference material. Bones and Brine by The Creeping Man Entertain Me by This Isn't Just a Cult Sorry by SQUID1969 Pour Fun in My Mouth by SQUID1969 The Complete Handbook of Oppositional Defiant Disorder by The Creeping Man If you prefer, you can also find our podcast episodes and other videos on YouTube.

The Long Lightning pt. 4
The continuation of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as read by M0ssy Tr0n. Abstract poetry read out loud because the main intensifier is electric gunsmith. But, we can primrose pretty much anything and make myriad lunatic dudes astounded at your grasp’s old acknowledgement yearly on spring brook, complete with shredding sophistry. Remember when you worked in a small redeemer stymie--a yobbo—ago, before everything switched to ginger, and you had your own mini moxie in voluptuous respirators? We think you have ‘big earthworms’ and would be a good prognosticator but your bimbo detector is just generality and crazy as soybeans. So, this might just be the remedy. This episode was written by Erik Blagsvedt and Bjor6n Oranj. It features a soundscape created by Bosky Rumbluffer.

Björ6n Oranj Meets The Creeping Man
The Creeping Man experiments with sound and creates sonic mayhem--mostly in the dark ambient mode. Further, The Creeping Man is the work of one person. This person has a name and a collection of, or maybe, just one pair of off-white, thermal, long underwear. Although deeply secretive, over-all distrustful and a bit of a recluse, The Creeping Man, or rather, a person probably in off-white, thermal, long underwear, did contact long-time collaborator Bjor6n Oranj via some sort of ham radio device to discuss his latest work-- A Hit or Miss Proposition. Meandering through a bizarre set of topics including hit men, detective novels & the plight of the artist, this interview is the only recorded glimpse into the inner workings of this creative visionary.
