Some stuff that is well worth a listen;
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00rpv3b

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06p4jvz

In fact, both these are presented by the same person, and both have goosebump-inducing moments of real wonder.

It makes me sad no-one on here seemed.interested in radio stuff. It might be horror's most intimate form. Not that horror is the only.thing I listen to.

I don't know where else to put this, so watch from 1:30 on. The 20th century was about turning books into films; maybe this is the artform of the 21st century.

These look good. I have limited wi-fi, but these are streaming rather than a download so it's a bit tricky to listen to them unless I'm in a coffee shop. And then, will they be scary? I'll work it out!

About that last one, I saw Richard Linklater's film YOU CAN'T LEARN TO PLOW BY READING BOOKS and it shows what was common practice in the USA in the '90s - people posting cassette tapes to each other through the mail containing monologues - a lot cheaper than a long-distance call.

The last one is affecting because it's made of recordings going back years and they sound like NOW. Nothing has affected me as much because nothing made took that long before. Apart from maybe the 7 Ups. But this is better because the guy wanted to do it. It really made me think about my own life, generally the missed chances and what-ifs.
I've realised I can barely remember the past couple of decades. I've been a pain in the ass to my wife, something of a hanger-on. It's made her maybe bitter towards me. It's sometimes very nice but often very difficult. I dissociate often.
Do you have many friends, Proto? I basically talk to you and Mark Lynch, and Albie a bit. Albie is in a rough spot, actually Mark is, too (I won't go into details). You have to savour the little things, don't you, make them Panavision in your mind's eye so they swamp the bad (mine doesn't work very well anymore, to be honest - I think the internet and phones have fractured it. Either that or it's early dementia).

God there's lots of negative thoughts in there! If you don't mind me making that observation - I think perhaps you drag yourself down with a stream on negative thoughts impacting on each other. Try to be conscious of what you're saying to yourself, catch yourself saying it and stop it! You can get that positive Panavision back - it's a muscle. Just use it.


(I've a small circle of friends, but the quality is very high. And I've an outer circle of less close friends/acquaintances, I suppose.)

About the negative thoughts. We often have a hard ball of ingrained ideas at our centre which is our cosmology - how we believe the world is. It's difficult to change that in one go, but if we can make our unconscious actions and thoughts more conscious, we can notice them and use logic to dissolve them as they happen. When we get into the habit of that, it's like eating the melty bit of ice cream from the outside. Keep doing that and before long you've finished off a whole tub of Ben & Jerry's core beliefs.

I DO drag myself. I've made bad choices. I jumped in a trap, like Marion Crane.

Basically I'm monumentally lonely. This place is kind of a map of where I'm at.

I'm sorry hear that. It might be reassuring to know that so many other people do feel the same way.

It's mean to be something of a plague, isn't it? I was in a pub the other week and was appalled to see nearly everybody on their phones. I kept expecting Donald Sutherland to look up at me and point and holler a funny noise.
But yesterday I was in a café with my son, and we were both on phones. But we had just spent about five hours walking and talking non stop. But I still felt bad.
Hey, Instagram people like me. I have some amazing people following me now. Writers and proper artists and filmmakers. I know it's silly feeling excited about such things but it really picks me up. Having someone you admire saying an image you have put up is good makes you feel you could be doing something purposeful and worthy (worthy in the good sense, the proper sense).

Been up since half three. Going cycling for miles the minute the sun comes up.

Getting up at half-three is nuts. Is there even a half-three in reality? I thought walking around then would feel like being backstage of the world.

That's great about the Instagram. Well done! It isn't silly feeling good about that validation, it's a normal human need.

It felt exactly like that. I didn't go out till just after five though, but still didn't see anyone in ages.

I got very sad because the nicest people I encountered were French and Indian. I noticed I have never been mocked or insulted by anyone of ethnic minority. What do you make of brexit, Proto? I'm hating it. An ugly side to where I live has appeared. I feel like one of those dismorphic people.

Well, some outside Britain seem to see Brexit as a post-Imperial psychosis. Countries who are subjected to empires have long-lasting psychic scars, but so too do those empires. They're a terrible idea.

In general, I feel people have lost sense of identity and so their ideology has become their identities, hence people now get offended when "mere" ideas are discussed because now their very identity is at stake.

I noticed Scotland wanted to stay in Europe, almost to a man. There's a map of the UK, red and blue, where the voting went. England is one colour, Scotland another. It's that different. People really do go by skin colour here, just that. I was scared of coloured or 'foreign' people for ages, but one day I saw a muslim family picking up other people's littler in a McDonald's car park and it hit me that 'we' might not be the good guys. It's a terrible feeling.

I don't think it's as simple as good guys and bad guys. Most people are trying to do the right thing, however they see that.

I just don't know how to co exist with some people though. They seem to want a bad world.

This was great. Robert Holdstock meets Blair Witch. Very atmospheric in headphones.

I sometimes wonder if sound cinemas might be good. Huge dark rooms with the sound all around. I bet it would be great.
