House-bound, couch-bound and sweating out a mystery illness, I'm still not recovered, and, much to my chagrin, missing the entire Ende Tymes Festival this weekend. I decided to pass the dreary times by not only watching a ton of films (and a few old Buffy episodes), but also by creating a podcast for loyal My Castle of Quiet listeners who may have missed the show this week.

Bill Zebub filled-in for me, on short notice, and with style, grace, and a hearty meal of metal which you can check out in the WFMU archives here. Thanks, Bill!

So here's a little something I put together for faithful Castleheads, those curious individuals who follow the show weekly, and obviously, for anyone else who might care to listen.

Hope you enjoy, and that this fixes you until I return this coming Thu./Fri. with The Gate, live in the studio, plus the usual extreme hijinx. Thanks, as always, for listening.
