It's a dark, rainy night here in San Diego and that's providing the inspiration for today's show. Me? I'm providing the soundtrack for tonight's perilous precipitation.
A dark, rainy night. That could go many ways, right? A brooding, introspective mix might be appropriate. Or maybe something light and playful, suggesting the cleansing nature of rain. But no, in this case it's a rain that might have fallen on that megatropolis that was Los Angeles in Bladerunner. Or maybe a rain that would have fallen on William Gibson's Chiba City in his seminal cyberpunk novel, Neuromancer.
It's a rain that makes the asphalt slick and causes manhole covers to endlessly belch fetid steam, obscuring unknown and possibly menacing figures. It's a rain that falls from a sky the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.
