The sophomore track/movement in my concept album/piece, built around The Wasteland
. Finalizing the mix took a bit longer than expected, so I didn't get it in before the deadline for the challenge. Boo. Nevertheless, Expect some surprises.
Some very small liberties have been taken with the text, in order to a) ensure maximum read-out-loud-ability, b) make certain that no one tried to do a bad fake English accent (see: the author
), and c) to guarantee that none of my narrators had to suffer through saying something as ridiculous as "Jug jug."
The glasses aren't technically wine glasses--they're iced tea goblets.

NOTE: The first sentence of this section is, quite easily, the longest, most absurd--albeit still grammatically correct--sentence I've ever inflicted upon someone else to read aloud. Notice, it starts at 0:28, and doesn't end until 1:15. It has TWO semicolons! When I typed the script, I cursed MSWord for refusing to underline the damned thing in green, for I knew he was technically correct--which, as we all know, is the best form of correct. It takes so many takes that, by the time you get it right, you forget how to say or read other words.
