Listen Ability Rating: <<<<9.2>>>> Take one part Glenn Beck, a smattering of frost covered Washington Monuments, and a short history of King of the Luthiers and you've got no idea what I'm talking about. You'll just have to do the prudent thing and listen.
In the late summer of 2010 half a million minions assembled to absorb propaganda in it's most rarified form. An aptly titled "Restoring Honor" speech by Glenn Beck. He altered his tone from manic word-monger to fatherly wisdom imparter. Yet underneath the apolitical surface writhes a venomous snake, hungry for the souless masses, ready to exact the slow squeeze. Sort of like a boa constrictor on crack.
Into my re -storying of the speech I've added short fragments of music, all under the two minute mark. King Midas Sound, "Sumtime" from Waiting for You , Ben Frost "Through the Glass of the Roof" from By the Throat, Broadcast and the Focus Group, "Will You Read Me" from Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age, John Oswald "spring" off of 69 Plunderphonics, Negativland "The Playboy Channel" off of Escape from Noise, Inxpotter "Amazing Grace" excavated especially for this podcast, and Rufus Harley "Re-Creation of the Gods" from the album of the same name.
Listen in and get the real story and let the Inxpotter know what you think!
