Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for August 20, 2014 – DDOP Day 21: 10 Year Anniversary

Tor.Com On the Thermals

I’ve liked the Thermals for some time, ever since the first time some of their music came down the Sub Pop rss feed. I’ve played them on this podcast several times now, and I’m sure I’ll do it again. Much for the same reason as I like Camper Van Beethoven‘s “New Roman Times”, I really get into The Thermals’ “The Body, the Bthelood, the Machine” album. These tales of near future theocratic dystopias get me going, because I desperately want to believe this is fiction and that we are not sliding to this outcome day by day. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Now I noticed Joshua Starr at Tor.com has recognized this album as a narrative work, a concept album of science fiction. Very cool of them to point to this very good work, and very appropriate to members of our SF tribe. I left a comment up there pointing to my playing of the band on this podcast. I like The Thermals and I like Tor.com. It’s two great tastes that taste great together.

It is one long speech about the state of the American nation, how we have gone wrong and continue to go wrong, how we have sacrificed the important moral aspects of our nation because we are scared for our safety; how we have a choice and it might be the last choice we ever get; I play a song by Camper Van Beethoven and deliver my eulogy for the nation I thought I once lived in.
