Another new episode! And it took less than four years! It actually took less than a year. I originally wanted to get this done at the end of 2018, but stuff happened. You know, a whole lot of yada yada. Anyway, here it is, so enjoy.
Welcome to episode #8 of the Silent Noise Project. This episode is exactly 49 minutes and 31 seconds long and weighs 53.1 megabytes. Your mileage may, and probably will, vary, because the internet is not a perfect place. (Which helps to explain how we ended up with the screaming orange hate baby in the White House.)
First things first:
Caution!This episode worked super extra hard to earn that “NSFW” tag. Hell, it should probably earn the “NFSFFW” (you figure it out) tag, because it did. You have been warned.
The People’s Revolutionary Podcast Naming Committee named this episode “the angry, pissed-off episode” from the get-go, and the name stuck, even though this episode was going to be about something completely different.
Notice!I talk really fast in this episode. It’s been a while, and I’ve finally got a lot to say. I’m going to experiment with shorter, more frequent episodes in future. Please let me know what you think.
Also, the editing in this episode is shit, because I gave myself a week to do the edits and mix-down, and I always forget that those processes take at least two weeks. I’ve only myself to blame.
Chapter 1 — On Being a Potty Mouth
- Here’s a study about people who swear a lot being more intelligent.
- Swearing is good for your health.
- People who swear tend to be chaotic good or chaotic neutral. Well, no shit.
Chaper 2 — I’ve Got Issues
- You can buy issues of just13 on the official website: http://just13.click
- Zines on Reddit (zine DIY and self publication)
- Zinesters on Reddit (for zine makers)
- So much meta in this chapter! If that turns you off, skip ahead to chapter 2.
- The static meant a major cut. If that bothers you, let me know.
Chapter 3 — Sometimes It’s a Barn Owl, But Not Always
- The What Cast website is http://www.thewhatcasters.com/
- I think it’s Mateo who does their artwork. You can see a lot of it on Instagram.
- You can also follow the What Cast on Twitter. They’re also on Facebook.
- That movie I mention that is about Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Yeti? Yep, looked, but can’t find it. It would have been made in the 1970s. If you are familiar with it, please drop a comment down below.
- Those show notes I talked about? I found them on Stitcher. (They’re also on iTunes, but iTunes doesn’t automatically make them a link, so you have to copypasta them. Which is another reason why iTunes continues to win the suck-a-rama of shitty software.)
- Wikipedia actually has a pretty good article on La Llorona. Apparently, now there’s a horror out movie based on this folktale and it looks sufficiently creepy to make me want to watch it. Also, this comment:
- It’s actually The Legend of Boggy Creek. It was available on Prime, but for now you’ll have to settle for an incredibly overpriced DVD. But if you have Prime, and it does become available again, be sure to watch it.
- I called it the “Flatwood Monster” when it’s really the “Flatwoods Monster.” The Small Town Monsters video is available on Amazon. It’s a little overdramatic, but it’s cool to see interviews with two of the people who originally witnessed it.
- Trey the Explainer’s video about the Flatwoods Monster is here:
- “Booklink”? What the doodle?
- There’s another great video about the Flatwoods Monster here.
- “People driving down the street” Again, what the doodle?
- Stephen King talked about paranoia and conspiracies in Danse Macabre. You can get a copy here and read the section where he discusses Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
- Read The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. You won’t regret it.
- You can buy The Lost City of Z here. Buy it. Read it. You’ll love it. (If you don’t, you can always bring it back.)
Chapter 4 — The Mall Report
- DeadMalls.com always has something interesting to read, if by “interesting” you mean “sad and depressing”.
- You can also read about the rise and fall of the shopping mall.
- This article is called “The History of the Shopping Mall” even though it isn’t. Rather, it’s about all the things that made shopping malls possible. It’s interesting.
- Time magazine has a good article called “Why the Death of Malls Is About More Than Shopping”.
- I just found out about mallhistory.com. It looks promising.
- You want this.
Tacocat is, of course, “tacocat” spelled backward. It is also four best friends—Emily Nokes (vocals, tambourine), Eric Randall (guitar), Lelah Maupin (drums), and Bree McKenna (bass)—who make great music. You can find out more about them on tacocatdotcom.com, or follow them on Twitter @tacocats. Their music comes to us courtesy of the the Free Music Archive. No album cover make Hulk sad.
UV Protection made glorious music just over ten years ago. Originally, from the Massachusetts College of Art, at least one member has gone on to form a new band, The Secret Sea. I will definitely be playing more of their music, so keep your ears open. Their music comes to us via the Free Music Archive.
Diablo Swing Orchestra is a Swedish metal group, which means they are both like and unlike any US metal group you have ever heard. You can visit their website here.
Old Lights has a page here, where they are amazingly reluctant to say anything about themselves. They are from Missouri, United States.

This is cool. Thanks, Mr. S!
Please feed your inner nerd by watching this video. Ride that tribble!
I know the Klingons are known for their love poetry, but I really do envision their language as being exactly like the captions. They are very much a “let’s skip the social niceties and get right down to details” kind of species. Which is perhaps why I like them so much. Eat, shit, screw, sleep, fight. No room for details.
