The First Song: Into the Night, Beside the Lake

Along with the rest of the country, we have been a little too successful at our “Counter Esperanto,” and the heaping plates of Double R Diner Turkey Specials have done us in for yet another year. And yet, in our repletion, we have not forgotten you, gentle listener, and so we offer up this holiday song of sorrow and wonder. A somewhat carnivorous canto in three parts:

  • The Lake” by Edgar Allen Poe, reading by Karl Eckler the Elder.
  • Nyarlathotep” by H.P. Lovecraft, reading by Jubel Brosseau.
  • “Floating into the Night” by Julee Cruise, as covered by Universal Self Awareness.
