its fashioned weaken night veil,
exciting time of year in which we all get to decide what is fashionable and what is not to use the charm
colloquialisms, we decide what is in

and everyone is there, because it is required by law.
So everyone is there and
scared and it is hip as hack,
Michel Win is the only one that doesn't look scared. This is her favorite holiday.
And she is wearing a vintage summoning cloak and a dog catchers cap

Veronica Rothschild is running around saying. Oh no, oh, no and adjust
Her unfashionable distressed eye glasses, casting
lances backward at the sphere, which is moving implacably to devour the unhappy

soon she will stumble, and then this
Europe will be upon her. It's like that popular joke. Why?
I did, the hipster burn her mouth
Because she survived the sphere and was able to eat her pizza before was cool.
And sure enough Michel win
so in hand, is cackling madly, watching the chaos and listening intently, the headphones that our plugged into nothing at all.
Sheriffs secret police are seeking any leads or witnesses in the case of the disappearances at the housing development of the shambling orphan
over the last several weeks. At least twelve people have vanished without a trace accept
or our memories of their previous existence, which, according to a roving gang of pedantic philosophers who has been into
rob things secret, police, press conferences does in fact count as a trace
Memories are as real as any of our constructed experiences of the world said, one philosopher with
invitation interrupting important information about the missing persons. I bet you think we are.
Because a thing he continued much to them,
light of his fellow philosophers and now-
a single other person in attendance,
the philosophers were last seen high fighting each other, while drinking cheap but locally made canned beer them.
Persons were last seen at home and on the street about town about their law,
it's just normally, living until suddenly and on
they no longer were seen anywhere at all resin
of these shambling orphan and the nearby development. The desert pines express
I would concern over their strong fears about their abject terror. More
the story as we grasp at narrative threads that can assuage our helplessness in the face of inexplicable tragedy.
Listeners last week I had my niece Janis over while her parents were taking a romantic long weekend in the kingdom

you're about any girls or boy she might be interested in and she diverted me politely but awkwardly to other subjects. I letter it's not for me to pry, that's the government's job
and if I'm ever curious, I can look at the public registry of middle school crushes, which is constantly being updated. Visa mine scanning satellite Dennis gave me a feeling of family
I rarely feel any more. It was a good feeling. I hope I will be able to visit Janis regularly.
In an earlier programme. We brought you this week's community calendar, however
It appears that there were a few errors in our reporting, so we would like to offer
corrections to our previous calendar
Monday, we said, was free hot chocolate day at the moonlight all night diner in actuality
Monday will be the day that a great craft crashes, down from the Heavens and
the all will surround the ominous bulk of it still glowing huh
and smoking from the impact whispering.
And wondering helpless to act
Tuesday we said was sign of day for the night veil, adult kick ball being Emission Grove Park. We were wrong.
It's about an event taking place in the park, but it appears that
This event will instead be a creature emerging from the craft towering,
over us and in
But we should not understand, and yet- and yet we
do understand, demanding that we worship it
Wednesday we described as being just a nice day to go outside and take a walk, just a really.
I stay for it. We said stretch
those games. We said we
the word Games over and over seemingly unable to say anything else, as it turns out when
this day is actually the day. We will stage a brief but ultimately
successful resistance against the horde of slimy many appendage alien warriors pouring out from the landing craft,
first day we said would be the day that beings from another world fully defeat us
and we were lined the roads and avenues on our knees head
bowed in recognition of our new masters. Our new gods turns out. We were
hundred percent right on that one. So we completely get the weak schedule wrong
Friday, we said would be the day that yours, citizen, renewal, packets, are do. You know the reims and reams of paperwork, probing every personal details that you have to fill out in order to remain a citizen of nine veil. Well, it still the date do that, but instead of turning it into the city council, who will add that point be locked in a hyper dimensional prison by the occupying extraterrestrials? You will instead turn it into these supervisor of your assigned human pod so that they can gauge how much energy can be extracted from your body. Saturday, we said was catarrh day.
We didn't mean anything by this. We just thought it would be funny people did.
Find it funny. They wrote and called the station demanding an explanation. Janus Rio from down the street seemed a spy,
surely disturbed. What do you mean it's Saturday? Will we be attacked by joint cats with joint cats? Build huge black cubes? Oliver town will be forced to enter a strained black cube. That will absorb my essence until there's nothing left of me, I'm allergic to cats, generous, cried! Well,
no Janis and
I'm sorry for causing panic Saturday will actually be the day the invading aliens start beating on us. So don't worry, no
That's that day, candidates
The fund were word to say Saturday, day and Sunday. Well, we were right about Sunday, so very go just as we said. Sunday will be the day that two Mika Flynn and the beings who claim to be analysed team up, delete a dramatic attack against the occupying force with the help of every night veil, citizen driving away our new masters and reinstating our old masters, who are brutal awful
who at least are a brutal and awful. We know and understand this

sphere hums next to her for a moment,
and then it rose by leaving her be so. It seems like this year. Holding a quiver of cigarette holders is very spared from the sphere. Indeed good survival Tipp there.
Old woman, Josie speaking from the headquarters of strikes, operatic limited, said that the new
who old, Knight Veil Opera House is complete.
Rehearsals are under full swing for opening night on June, fifteenth
of a brand new opera written composed directed by an

Listeners the time has come, the sphere has arrived at the station. It
Coming it looms. The sphere will decide whether the station and the souls within it are hip enough to be spared. I tell you
although I did not to prepare for the sphere it's up.
For God it is that I do not care, and I M not afraid I don't know

let's be assimilated into the pulsating dark innerds of the sphere. Of course, radio is always hip
radio was timeless community
the radio exists outside of time and space, and so is the most fashionable thing of all. Of course, we all know this,
so it's good that our station was spared and that I will continue doing radio for the foreseeable future and not stopping
I won't be doing it here, but
continuing to do it right. So I guess it's time then,
at the start of all this. I promised news capital in here is the news my next broadcast
as host of night veil. Community radio will be my last in night veil
I am moving to the

In that vast sandy alternate dimension.
There is a radio station there built by Kevin, who seems too,
who have himself pretty under control and is still
We only have a little bit of blood, so I should be able to continue doing what I'm doing just fine. I won't be doing it in a way that you will be able to hear, but that too is just one.
I've missed Carlos greatly and I've also grew weary of a mayor that can't protect herself of of a town that fears outsiders, of a face
old woman who secretly lives at my home and publicly wants to do me harm and I think, of a desert other world where it is all these Sonny
and mountains or real? There was a helpful mast army that can build anything
and your cellphone battery never dies. Even if reset
is bore g at best. There is the question: is night veil worth it
is night veil good. Is it a good town well
I will for the first time in my long life live somewhere.
Other than night fail, but, as a poet once said,
no matter where you end up your still from your hometown,
I'll be back to visit from time to time? Of course, I need
generous and my old friend Josie and many others. Besides, I M not gone, but
I am going, I'm going to
Live somewhere, I can feel good about
somewhere newer and better for me stay to next, eventually,
for me reporting on the opening of the opera house and then not reporting.
On anything else here ever again can ultimately good night night veil, good night.
