Phil Comments: Coming up next on Radio Free Albemuth, the latest from Lynyrd Skynrd. But first, here’s the weather forecast.

Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning!

    Yuck, albemuth. I hate egg whites. make exactly the same face as the blue guy when I have to eat them.

    What?

  2. Muttley Says:

    Bestselling author of “Blade Runner”? Electric Sheep are taboo are they?

    “Hmm, I wonder what Planet Earth is listening to on its headphones? ARGH! I didn’t think whale music could get so loud!”

  4. AceofSpace Says:

    I don’t understand the perspective in this.
    The giant headphones of Doom are behind the man in blue but the electric rays still look like he is standing inbetween them?

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Guy being tortured by radio messages from outer space? Sounds unfortunately like Dick’s world view…

  6. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Due to financial difficulties, Rupert Murdoch never got to build his dream project: A giant stationary satellite that would beam NEWS OF THE WORLD directly into people’s heads.

    The Weather Channel would be going into apocalypse mode over all those low pressure systems.

  8. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    This reminds of the scene from Seinfeld when Elaine tries on that deaf guy’s ear piece.

  9. SI Says:

    Yep I’ve seen before. Death by stereo!

  10. Phil Says:

    I’ve always been puzzled by the blue guy. Either he is blue all over and wearing nothing but a black blazer… or he may be wearing a blue jumper that blends in with his blue skin and makes him look as if he is naked except for the blazer.

  11. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    The iPod of 2057.

  12. AceofSpace Says:

    The Blue Man Solo world tour wasn’t the success everyone hoped it to be.

  13. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Video did NOT kill the Radio Star!

  14. Hex Says:

    I have a few Panthers of this vintage, including PKDs, and love the covers.

    Not, however, this one.

  15. anon Says:

    “Afro time, dear blue H!”

  16. Tat Wood Says:

    @anon: a man being forcibly permed and made to resemble blue sky? This is what happened when the mothership on those ELO album covers finally landed and released their mind-wiping drones.

  17. Perry Armstrong Says:

    “Oh, that’s just great. We blow our entire FX budget on the ‘Roj Blake being tortured’ sequence, and now they tell me they’re only going to use an extreme close-up of his agonised face in the titles!”

  18. Tat Wood Says:

    Experiment VI: does a human-Smurf hybrid have a higher tolerance for 70s novelty records than normal?

  19. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    When the Earth hits your girth and you’re blue like a Smurf, that’s al-Bemuth!

    And this is the soundtrack….
