Episode #156: Fairy Tale Reading – East of the Sun West of the Moon 1


This week and next, we’ll be reading a traditional Nordic fairy tale, “East of the Sun, West of the Moon.”  This week’s version is retold and illustrated by PJ Lynch.  This one is more the traditional tale – although there are some anachronistic elements that put it pre-modern era, it features the heroine’s journey and a number of frequently encountered fairy tale staples.  It also is sort of a combination between “Beauty and the Beast” + “Cupid and Psyche” (from Greek mythology).  Below are some of the wonderfully detailed paintings that adorn each page:



Between Two Worlds, the synth EP follow up to Long Ago Not So Far Away is now out for streaming on Bandcamp.  

The bonus track, called “Flight of the Cloudrider” has a 80s movie mashup music video (see if you can identify all the movies!) which is available on youtube.   This app was largely created with the iphone app Auxy.

Stay tuned.  Follow along on Spotify!  There is also a growing extended Thirteenth Hourplaylist on Spotify with a growing number of retro 80s songs.

Check it out!

As always, thanks for listening!
