Episode 012: Russian Ark / Sleep – Dopesmoker

[powerpress]


I debated whether or not to write a 1000-word run-on sentence in the spirit of Russian Ark and Sleep’s Dopesmoker, an homage to the unbrokenness of each work. (And, spoiler alert that’s sort of spoiled in like the first minute anyway, Russian Ark is a one-take 90-minute film, and Dopesmoker the album is a one-track, 60-minute song called – hey! – “Dopesmoker.”) But that just sounded really, really tiring, and so I’ll save that writing exercise for another day. Or I’ll just never do it. Yeah, probably never do it.

We were brave listeners and viewers, and we survived.

Now here’s your chance to be part of history, by listening to the entire hour-plus-long podcast in one sitting! Can you do it? Do you have the intestinal fortitude? Are you a true believer?

It’s not that hard. Suck it up.

(Yikes, that was quite a Tobias-esque demand. Sorry about that.)

No more adieus, listen and learn.
