The Real Congregation :: The Ballad Of The House :: 09/16/14

Posted by MarcWithaC on September 16, 2014

real congregation 1400We’re here, right now. Let’s take advantage of that with a monster-sized episode of The Real Congregation. Everything could be gone in the blink of an eye. For all you know, you could wake up tomorrow in some Caprica-style artificial heaven, and you wouldn’t have fully seized all of your days. You don’t want that guilt transferred into your afterlife, and believe me – guilt is transferable. So is every bad memory, everything left undone, and remembrances of every plant you didn’t water. Those plants go with you to your afterlife, except now they can communicate with you. You’ll try to reason with them, and while they’ll ultimately be content in the digital afterworld of your design, the plants will mostly want to know why you decided to kill them on top of being too busy to listen to The Real Congregation.

In this episode, Marc With a C attempts to separate art from artist, talks about the impossibility of having a true “guilty pleasure”, and plays a few strange records, but it’s all futile in the long run. We’ll all be dust and bones and these episodes will eventually be ruined by solar flares. Might as well tune in while your internal matter can make some sense of it all.
