Another tale (the first, and only) involving Agent Expatokeydokey.. The fire sounds are from a hookah coal. The noise is from a failing cable from the psr-520.. or from me

I think the fire noises are really, quite cool. I've never noticed the hookah coal making any noises... did you put a mic really close it or something?

Really interesting.

Nice sound effects! There is a foley artist in there clawing his way out.

I like the way the music never fully commits to being a song or a This American Life-esque backdrop. At some points it grabs your attention (by getting louder, overpowering the VO, etc.), and other times it barely registers. It's a neat effect.

Thanks for the comments! The crackling from the coals is from the self-lighting covering. It's right up against the mike.

That had a quality like finding a charred photograph on the sidewalk. Nice!
