The Gothic Archies, 2006-11-11

Posted in audio recording at 5:36 pm by pronoiac

On the 11th, Book Passage in Corte Madera had Lemony Snicket do a reading. At least, that was the plan. Unfortunately, Snicket didn’t make it, so Daniel Handler & Stephin Merritt gamely carried on without him, doing some songs as The Gothic Archies (without the percussion section).

Their stated purpose is to convince people not to read the horrible, hideous books, in which terrible things happen to undeserving people. Instead of listening, though, people just laughed, as if they were in on the joke.

It’s nice to share. Proceed with caution. The proprietor assumes no liability for any trauma incurred due to this, but would like to keep the option of “malicious glee” open for any tales of same.

  • MP3 (23 meg @ 96kbps)
  • AAC audiobook (16 meg @ 64kbps) – This has chapter headings, one for each song. This is my first attempt at an enhanced podcast, despite the fact that this is not a podcast.

My email address is on the about page, incidentally.

Update, 2007-02-07: I fixed the artist tags. Whoops.
