Hey Frank Prometheus: Whats the deal with the begginning sequence the anunaki dude drinking some DNA gear that kills him then the UFO is different then their own horse shoe lookin ones. I guess theres gotta be another one.. for this explanation? Also you notice how many times the question of faith arises?

  3. As I understand it, the black liquid is a kind of incredibly advanced technology that reacts to your thoughts, turning your will into reality. In the opening scene, the “Engineer” (aka annunaki) uses the technology to bring life to an entire planet. He may actually not have died, but spread his body out to become a planet teeming with a variety of lifeforms, with his consciousness still guiding the process.

  4. The way I see it, if you are committed to creative commons music, you need to present it, song by song. Every song needs separate announcing so people identify them. Playing ‘sets’ with a bunch of songs and then reading a laundry list of titles and artists probably doesnt give the listener the sort of impetus to figure which is what. Like old AM radio – every single song either gets a talk in or talk out, so basically, you never play more than two songs back to back.

  5. On the one hand, there is the form of the compilation album, which is just a set of songs in sequence, with no descriptive audio. In this case, it is assumed that the listener may refer to the track listing on the packaging.

    On the other extreme, broadcast radio, in which the listener has nothing to refer to, must rely on the DJ (or their own familiarity) to know the name of the artist and the song title.

    Internet radio is kind of in-between. For myself, sets of around 6 songs feel right. It may be confusing for people to hear a list of 6 song titles… but they can always refer to the playlist in the shownotes, the same as reading the track listing on a record/tape/CD of old. Or, as I have sometimes done, play clips of the songs themselves while saying the names so that people can associate them.
