Holiday Santacular!

The Stranger celebrates the holidays with four hours of radio; celebrating New Year’s Eve, Christmas, Saturnalia, and our recent triumph over Doomsday — all in one! We’ll review the past year’s current events, look forward to the progress of tomorrow, and how we might just be doomed after all. Then, we’ll finally get to hear […]

Doomsday

Doomsday

Well, the world hasn’t ended yet. But this may be a distinction without a difference, as they say, when we see how officious officials from every land and clime are hurriedly harkening a harrowing hell in a handbasket. Make up for lost time, boys, because the Mayan Calendar was off a spell! Stranger in a […]

Voynich

Voynich

This week we eschew that media violence to discuss the mysterious Voynich Manuscript with aaronJacob, some of the more ridiculous beliefs surrounding it, and even the more sane claims. We’ll hear clips from Terence McKenna and Brian Dunning, and consider everything from Rosicrucians, secret alchemical societies, spirits and seances, psychedelic visions, time travel and even the Necronomicon. Stranger […]

The Naughty List

Since Christmas is coming, and The Stranger has plans to talk to Santa this month, it only seems fitting to compile a list of those who have been very naughty on a societal level, to save old Saint Nick the burdensome time involved. After all, he’ll need that extra time to shovel massive amounts of […]

Confusion

Now that we’ve disentangled the quantum data, my mind has been struggling to reassemble and compartmentalize the various strings from that theory. Or perhaps it’s just my political junkie nature which is causing me to shake and tremble so violently from the confusing current events and media spin? Stranger in a Strange Land 2012-12-01: Confusion […]

Alternate Reality

Alternate Reality

Well, the quantum experiment failed, and I’ve been so depressed about the results of the election that I haven’t done a show in two weeks. Of course, when things change, it’s not always for the better, so we’ll be looking at what dystopic world now surrounds us, and if it was really that different than […]

Reality

Well, the quantum experiment failed, though people are screaming in the streets. I think that’s mostly because Barack Obama won his re-election. Of course, the more things stay the same, they more they change, so we’ll take a look at exactly what the status of quo is following a hard-fought campaign season of false promises, […]

A huge portion of Manhattan is still without power or water, especially affecting the elderly. Water contamination becomes a concern. Public transportation remains crippled. There’s a potentially crippling gas shortage. But it gets worse— Superfund sites were inundated and released massive amounts of toxic material; Oil, detergents, pesticides and other chemicals are washed out to sea in […]

That Feeling

Posted by on Oct 20, 2012 in Current Events, Playlist, Politics, Radio | No Comments

Certain genres, certain time periods, certain sounds just give you that certain feeling. You know? The way it pervades and perverts your body, for better or for worse. So many things are vying to make you feel a certain way; religion, politics, corporate advertising… I say, follow the hard science, and as for feelings… leave that […]
