Listen, Little Man! (Wilhelm Reich reading)
 
03:22:51
1946 essay from Wilhelm Reich. Sharp, needfully brutal stuff. This man's life was ruined (and works suppressed) by the powers that be, whom he casually and shamelessly embarrassed. He deserves to be heard today! Read by myself, D.T. Smith.

Hieroglyphics (Arthur Machen reading)
 
04:49:02
You, the author's audience, are his story's secondary character, to whom he speaks directly in this lesser-known work from the man who heavily influenced H.P. Lovecraft. It brilliantly and amusingly questions and analyzes popular criteria used to distinguish high art from high artifice. His criticisms are as relevant to our day as his own. This is all at once: essay, lecture, short story, and literary critique. I heavily suggest this to aspiring writers, other artists, and whomever has embarked (or would embark) upon the Quest for the Holy Grail.

Poke Runyon sings "If I Only Had A Brain"
 
00:42
I consider Carroll "Poke" Runyon as a mentor. This is his version of the Wizard of Oz tune, from one of my favorite episodes of his internet radio show, The Hermetic Hour (The Hermetic Revival in the 21st Century, aired 3/21/13 - link below). If he or anyone associated with the show disapproves of my re-post here, please let me know and I'll remove it. It's just too funny and catchy...and I actually prefer this version! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/the-hermetic-hour/2013/03/22/the-hermetic-revival-in-the-21st-century

I own no copyright to the music and encourage everyone listening to please buy their album!

Big spider spins a web on my front porch

Winter Whirlwind Abating (original song for guitar and keys)
