About this Episode

I'm shooting for quality today.

In the spirit of earlier podcasts concerning Giant Crab Movies and Journey,this podcast concerns what might today be called "Lounge Crooner Classics".
In their day, they were pop songs commissioned to be played over the credits of movies and then sold as singles.
We're talking about "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" by Frankie Avalon;
"Journey to the 7th Planet" by Otto Brandenburg;
"The Lost Continent" by The Peddlers; and
"The Vengeance of She" by Robert Field.
These are absurd performances of human art and commerce pitched
to the highest possible degree. At least in my opinion.
Moreover, they can help you with your anger!
Few things do more to diminish anger than a feel for the absurd.
This podcast is intended to help the speaker, and the listener,
with his or her anger.
"Come with me,
And take a Voyage,
To the Bottom,
Of the Sea."
