  5. The Flickerman, Episode One

    My name is Cornelius — I suppose I am the Flickerman.

    I call myself that because… because my life has become unhinged. It’s out of joint. No more than that. My life isn’t my own anymore. It’s exploded.

    As I write this I am cold, tired, dirty, scared and confused. My girlfriend is missing, my bestfriend is dead, my ankle is bust, my world has come apart exploded.

    And someone has been recording it all, everything that has happened, taking photos and posting them on the Internet.

    This site is my chance to answer back , to let people know what is happening to me, to help make sense of what has happened to me. I’ve taken the events of those few days and I’m turning them back on themselves… making them into an… entertainment for you… so that I can be heard…

    My reply starts here…

  8. Operation Luna

    Here’s a real blast from the past. It’s an episode of Operation Luna, the first series of Journey Into Space, a classic British science-fiction radio drama first broadcast in 1953: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journey_Into_Space

    This has a particularly poignant appeal to me. It stars my great-uncle Alan Keith: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Keith
