"But, and I’m going to get a little personal here, that’s the essence of life. Isn’t it? Sometimes you go through things that seem huge at the time, like a mysterious glowing cloud devouring your entire community, and while they’re happening, they feel like the only thing that matters, and you can hardly imagine that there’s a world out there that might have anything else going on.
And then the Glow Cloud moves on. And you move on. And the event is behind you. And you may find, as time passes, that you remember it less and less. Or, absolutely, not at all, in my case. And you are left with nothing but a powerful wonder at the fleeting nature of even the most important things in life, and the faint but pretty smell of vanilla."
-- Cecil Baldwin, the voice of Night Vale
so I made a collection inspired by the lovely and creepy podcast, Welcome to Night Vale [which everyone should listen to]. It's a radio show about a dusty desert town and all of the creepy stuff that happens there and updates about perfect Carlos the scientist brought to us by the poetic and wonderfully comical host, Cecil Baldwin.
You can download all the episodes for free on iTunes and there are two new episodes a month, one on the 1st and the other on the 15th.
I may have, as usual, romanticized the podcast a bit but I think that's fitting.
also, a shout out to @animeeos for introducing me to the podcast and just for being a super great and fabulous human being in general.
