XHM #21 - "The eternal light narrows" (2010 June 07)

7:32am - 9:01am

Uneasy listening this week, with Clint Mansell under the spotlight: Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, Smokin' Aces and Moon get their due. The station is a minor schvitz today; just imagine the full onslaught of summer once it descends upon this peninsula.

Before I forget: Mansell and Aronofsky are in the midst of post-production for a film called Black Swan, due later this year. Aronofsky is apparently working on a new version of Robocop though as a producer. That should be intense.
