The Thirteenth Hour Podcast #378: Revising “I’m Here, You’re Not” (for The Thirteenth Hour Soundtrack) and Updates on Toys and Future Episodes

This past week, I worked on finishing a track started back in Episode 364 accompanying a short segment from The Thirteenth Hour where Logan meets his crewmates again in a dream.  When I finished the episode, I put it aside since it didn’t quite feel done, but I couldn’t put my finger on what it needed.  I tossed around a number of ideas for a time, but it was not until recently that I hit on the right sound – the additional of a choral backing track and modifying the bell-like lead with a wah-wah sound to make it sound more ethereal.  I do think this is the last track for the second Thirteenth Hour soundtrack!  Now, I have to put it all together, make sure it has the finishing touches, and make the packaging.  I think the Thirteenth Hour action figures (basically done!) and the magnet dolls will be accompanying this album.

This fall, if you’re looking for an adult of child mask, check out Thirteenth Hour mask combo package on Etsy.  This fall, it became really hard to find good quality masks for our kids as they were going back to school.  There are still long wait times for some of the companies we like best, so I thought, why not try to find an alternative?  I eventually settled on the triple layer masks available for printing on by the company Flashbay.  They were one of the few companies I found that were transparent about their third party safety data (Junior:, Adult: which is nice.  I was impressed by how well these masks performed on the filtration tests, even after repeat washings.  Also, I really liked how both the ears and nose piece could be adjusted for a good fit.


The Thirteenth Hour mask combo also comes with Thirteenth Hour hand sanitizer! (But of course.)


There are now Thirteenth Hour toys!  If you’d like to pick up one of these glow in the dark figures for yourself, feel free to email me or go to the Etsy store I set up ( and get them there.
