Elizabeth Sandifer created Eruditorum Press. She’s not really sure why she did that, and she apologizes for the inconvenience. She currently writes Last War in Albion, a history of the magical war between Alan Moore and Grant Morrison. She used to write TARDIS Eruditorum, a history of Britain told through the lens of a ropey sci-fi series. She also wrote Neoreaction a Basilisk, writes comics these days, and has ADHD so will probably just randomly write some other shit sooner or later. Support Elizabeth on Patreon.

    So great to finally listen to the whole song, because the chorus was absolutely mind-blowing from the first time I heard it.

    Watching the video, my thoughts went approximately like this:
    – I have to check when they made this video and whether the look of the bandaged Cybermen in World Enough and Time was an inspiration.
    – Nah; it was probably David Bowie in the video for Lazarus.
    – Wait… did Bowie in Lazarus serve as an inspiration for Moffat to create the bandaged Cybermen???

    Somehow, the first few times I heard the excerpt on the podcasts, I heard it as “keep hitting strangers”. Which may or may not be psychologically revealing, in a Rorschach Testish kind of a way (hey, there’s a niche topic for some psychological research – the diagnostic implications of mishearings of song lyrics). I mean, apparently there was a time when I used to do that, but it was decades ago, and I was only a toddler.

    I’m oddly captivated by YouTube’s choice of follow-on recommendations, especially the inclusion of Christopher Hitchens. But then I suppose there was something kind of qlippothic about Hitchens, so maybe that’s apt.

    Given the projector, I’m kind of surprised Articles of Secession isn’t included in SOL. Then again, there’s always Hidden Tracks…

      The album was deep into mixing when Articles was recorded, and it doesn’t really fit with the album musically.

      When last I heard it’ll be on the bonus EP attached to the CD version.
