The End of the World

The End of the World - EPISODE FOUR

At long last, we bring you the compelling season finale of The End of the World. Will the compelling questions of yore be finally answered? I guess we'll never know. Unless we listen to the episode, that is.

Join us next week for our companion discussion show, "The End of the World: As We Know It". In this final wrap-up, guest stars Hugh Scott (brother), Susannah Wood (sister-in-law), and 4-year-old Jasper (nephew) will join me in an old fashioned family get-together to talk about metamorphosis, volcanoes, and the future.

Norman’s Recording Studio

Norman's Recording Studio - Keezell Building, circa 2001

Norman's Recording Studio Promo - Circa 1983

In 2nd grade, I decided it was time to get serious with my recording career. With several years of experience behind my belt, I assembled my state-of-the-art equipment and established Norman's Recording Studio. Clients were charged 10 cents each for their recordings. My first client would not come along until nearly 17 years later, so in the meantime, I worked on perfecting my craft and developing revolutionary recording techniques, like the classic "Slow Style".

I will reveal the secret of Slow Style to you now. I discovered that, by pressing the Pause button on my tape recorder about halfway down, it would cause the tape speed to increase. If you could hold it steady... and I practiced, oh did I practice... the speed would stay relatively consistent, and when playing the tape back at regular speed, your voice would sound not unlike Jabba the Hutt.

Many a recording was made in the endlessly entertaining Slow Style.
