future bing - march 19, 2012

sunny day

Early on in this episode two props can be seen. The first is my floral lampshade, which later appeared in a prototype interactive series called BROX. The other is a cardboard box that might contain a dead and/or alive cat.

This episode is the first to feature music by Robert Gillies, a Scottish folk guitarist living in the US. A regular viewer of the series, Robert got in touch to volunteer his music to be used as part of the soundtrack. Robert and I would become good friends in the years to come. Later, during a visit to the UK, he and his wife would stay with us at the Arena and organise a secret gig in South London.

This episode became a fan and personal favourite, and is one that I rewatch anytime I need a pick-me-up.
