This is about the top 3 NCN personal musical 'idols' namely Trent Reznor, Roger Waters and Frank Zappa. The holy trinity, in other words. Excerpts of NIN remixes make up the glue of the program which muses (in regular intense stream of consciousness fashion) about what it means to live an artistic life, it's trappings, joys and challenges. The program has a backdrop of melancholy, with bright musical bursts of darkly energetic inspiration in the foreground, sometimes humorous, sometimes a complete digression from the dominant theme and thenback again. This is the Director's Cut of the program, around 79 minutes long, in a single 128kbps V0 mp3. Includes the 'singles' 'Overreacting' (a Narco cover of a very cool song originally by the band 'Brad Sucks') and 'Cynical Girl', also sung by Narco, parodying Neil Young, dinBOT, and some rare Subgenius Show material. See links for this podcast for more information.
