Terry found himself revisiting the catalogue of Eric Clapton back in April.  Once he heard that tour dates were getting rescheduled due to illness, it seemed like a good time to share a list of some of the deeper cuts before they could possibly become part of a posthumous tribute to the guitar great.

Before that Terry goes into a mostly fun explanation of why the podcast has been away.  Then the close explores where the next twelve episodes are going to go (hope everyone like a road trip, not literal - of course).  And while it is not intended to be away again for two months, due to some personal affairs, the return of the podcast for Episode 27 is uncertain at this time.

Please follow us on Facebook (The Flickering Waves Podcast) and Twitter (@flickeringwaves) for updates.  The YouTube playlist of the ten Clapton songs is up on YouTube along with playlists related to some of the other episodes of the podcast.  Please rate and review the podcast on iTunes and drop us a line at flickeringwaves@gmail.com  Thanks as always for listening.

This is a mad dash of a week for the podcast.  If all goes to plan, this is the first of three episodes in the days leading up to Record Store Day 2017.  This installment deals with seven records that Terry bought over the years that were infinitely better than the low, low prices paid for them would suggest (not free, just cheap).  Some of these have even become essential recordings in his collection.  Terry reflects on one of his favorite radio stations as well as some of the places where he bought these records.  Sometimes one cheap record can someone a fan for life.  And of course there are tangents, planned and otherwise.

There is a YouTube playlist available that highlights a pick from each of these albums.  However, once there, it should be easy and surprisingly legit to explore the rest of these albums for additional enjoyment.

One can also e-mail the podcast at flickeringwaves@gmail.com And also there is a Facebook group and Twitter feed for the podcast.  And after listening one is wondering, yes I did manage to talk for more than an hour non-stop and I don't get it either.  Episodes 26 & 27 should post by next Saturday.

This episode features an unique discussion of the 1998 film Next Stop Wonderland starring Hope Davis and directed by Brad Anderson.  As we are one year from the 20th anniversary of the film, Terry didn't want to do a regular breakdown of the film.  There are likely spoilers in this episode but one hopes that the discussion will encourage watching or re-watching one of Terry's favorite films of 1990s.

So in this discussion, Terry explores some history with some of the actors in the film as well as his own personal history of watching the film.  Also, Terry speaks about his fascination with the soundtrack and bossa nova in general.  Towards the end, there are a couple of film recommendations as well as a slice of Terry's creative thought surrounding what he wanted in the third segment of Before series (which would be named Before Midnight).

All of this and more is framed around a nod to a recurring moment in Next Stop Wonderland.  To do this, Terry used a few randomly selected words from Anna Kendrick's Scrappy Little Nobody.  Like most random things, there were some good outcomes and some not-so-good outcomes.  Think of it as one more layer in a podcast lasagna that is trying to bubble over in the pan.

This is a relatively short episode of the podcast to bring the machinery back up to speed for more episodes in 2017.  The time away was just that.  Thought was given to hanging it up but as long as the downloads keep happening, there will be more but there is no guarantee of the frequency.

So perhaps the last few months feel strange.  Yeah, me too.  Looking briefly back at November and last Oscar Sunday, Terry offers thoughts on how he feels about award shows now and what these two events might mean for the episodes ahead.  Perhaps new vistas will be exciting or perhaps it is fancy dressing over old ideas.  Thanks for taking a listen and deciding for yourself.

No YouTube playlist for this one.  However, if one wants to follow what movies Terry watches in 2017, there is a YouTube playlist for that.  For links related to the episode, Terry just might post on the Facebook group page and/or the Twitter feed.
