12 Voluptuous Veils, Vigorous Voyage (Part VII)

Episode 12 (2018): Come explore a hodge-podge of sound, snippet, and song. Poetic whimsy and wordsmithery be our guide, unveiling worlds unseen and unforeseen, and unleashing ripples of whatever, what-nots, and what-have-yous. So, as we dip our ears in an ink of aural oddities, may we commune with the muse as she sees fit.

1. Sometimes a Saint & Sometimes A sinner (Part VIII)

Welcome to the first episode of 2018! After a wee hiatus, we revisit the saints and sinners theme, and perhaps it's an apropos time, too. Seemingly, the past few years feels like the moral pendulum swings at an ever increasing rate, as if it's going to snap and the whole world will desecend into existential chaos. Are we at a crossroads uncertain how to navigate through the hazy spectrum of rights and wrongs, arrogance and humility, fear and courage, and kindness and cruelty? I invite you to tune in to see where all these thoughts take us...

5. Absolutely Everything's Nothing Something

(Part I)

More often than not, host Black Hole Tenali likes to present a theme based episode, such as dreams, philosophy, animals, seasonal, and so on. This go-around, however,  it's going to be completely different. How so? Well, think of it as an anti-theme. An episode about nothing, or maybe it's about everything, or something. So, maybe this is all a put on and there actually is a theme. Ultimately, it seems that everything’s nothing something, too. Is it all a word-play mystery? You'll just have to listen to find out.
