Spectral Christmas Eve - H. P. Lovecraft and Henry James

Our entrée, if you will, a beery amuse-bouche: Mark E. Smith "reading" Lovecraft's The Colour Out of SpaceNever mind that this is all but unintelligible to anyone born outside a 2 mile radius of Salford and not a committed jakey. Watch as MES gets increasingly, twitchily mushy-mouthed and continuity moves beyond human ken (check pissed chuckle at 06:13; baffling wardrobe change; head in hands losing it denouement 09:22).  Cheers.

Our main course this night before Christmas comes courtesy of unassuming genius Fearlono -  last known abode Cottage of Electric Hell!  - who has taken classic cinema adaptation of Henry James's The Turn of the Screw and hand-crafted source audio eerie and atmosphere disturbing into lovingly isolated and creepily assembled continuous mood piece.  

Pass the brandy, will you dear?

Ooh ... Love "The Innocents". Would love to have this, but is the link broken? It's just sending me to the MediaFire homepage.

Great blog btw; keep up the good work.
