40 Years Ago This Month

a book, "The Last Dangerous Visions", was announced by Harlan Ellison. As recently as 2007 Harlan said he still wants to get the book out. A narrative of this Worst Odyssey Ever was written by Christopher Priest. You can read it at Archive.Org here. It is all so disheartening.

There is little hope that Mr. Ellison will finish the book or experience the 50th anniversary of this process. If there is anything you can do about this, please give it a try.

Postscript. A famous Science Fiction writer sent me this advice;

Why not write to Mr Ellison direct and ask him how he's getting along with things?

The Lathe Of Heaven - With A Little Help from My Friends

This was Public Television's first made-for-television movie costing $250,000. The film was out-of-print for decades and was changed slightly when it was brought back. This original version of With A Little Help From My Friends from the original film might just be the very first mash-up.

The youtube link is dead now, I see. No matter. Download the video HERE

WFMU - Sixty Second Song Remixes

This is a plug for WFMU, an NYC radio station that also streams and also offers podcasts. Here is their blog. I entered this contest 6 years ago and won an appearance on the 80-track CD. Here are the best 18 tracks from the CD for you to enjoy. It's fun to hear Hotel California again without the time commitment, and the same goes for Stairway To Heaven and Bolero. There is something interesting going on in every track. Download all the tracks in stereo if you like using the link in the comments.

Shahin & Sepehr - October Moon

The album version is just too long at 5 minutes plus. This radio version was better received, and is my favorite instrumental in a long while. Play it here and download it with a right-click if you like.
