“Your hand is staining my window.” Nurse Ratched addresses the important issue.
Galactic Soup Playlist for May 16, 2013. “If Mr. McMurphy doesn’t want to take his medication orally, I’m sure we can arrange that he can have it some other way.” –Nurse Mildred Ratched.
Hello fellow insanity ward inmates,
This week we finally faced the consequences of pairing our criminal proclivities with our mighty laziness. We refused to do hard labor in the slammer and opted for an easy ride in a psychiatric ward. Needless to say the results were not quite satisfactory. Yep, we featured the 1975 filmmaking perfection One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Boy did nurse Ratched’s get the better part of us.
During the first half of our show we also had a little videogame feature as Farnham the town drunk from the PS1 game Diablo did a guest appearance and added some funny, albeit sometimes inappropriate commentary during the show. Our favorite comment being “You drink water?!”
The second half of the show we featured the master of the surprise-ending short story O. Henry. This time around a young girl walks away with a gift of $1000 from a seasoned hustler “who understands the symptoms and by-plays of women-folks.” Yes, we featured The Ransom of Mack by O. Henry from the book Selected Stories published by the Penguin Group.
Tune in next week to take your weekly dose of movies, video games, and literature with the only known medicine to enhance your insanity while massaging your auditory perception: Galactic Soup on KUCI FM.
“You drink water?!” - Farnham the town drunk.
“I made up my mind right away what do. I’d save old Mack if I could. To have a good, seasoned, ineligible man like that turn chicken for a girl that hadn’t quit eating slate pencils and buttoning in the back was more than I could look on with easiness.” -The Ransom of Mack

Galactic Soup Playlist for May 9, 2013. “Oh you can’t help that. Most everyone’s mad here.” – Cheshire Cat
Hello fellow psychedelic cats,
This week we asked the question: who are you? Apparently the answer is not so simple so we had to approach the issue by steps. First we tried to figure out where were we going. Well we didn’t know that either. Yep, this week we found ourselves deep inside the rabbit hole as we featured Disney’s 1951 classic Alice in Wonderland. Now you may wonder if we ever found the answers we were looking for. Well suffice it to say that it doesn’t matter whether or not we ever find the answers, what really matters is that we search for them. The journey is everything.
The second half of the show we did as the Queen of Hearts commanded and literally had heads rolling on the grass. We featured the gruesome tale Bloody Polly by Michael Norman and Beth Scott from the book The Campfire Collection: Ghosts, Beasts And Things That Go Bump In The Night published by Chronicle Books LLC.
Tune in next week for more auditory existential adventures on Galactic Soup. The radio show that has no idea what it is or where it’s going.
“She was enraged at the thought of losing Harry Geiss to her sister. Her devious mind created a scheme so horrible that years passed before its full impact was known.” -Bloody Polly.
