I accept no responsibility for anything that should happen to your mind should you listen to this program in its entirety, particularly alone, in the dark, with headphones.

This special edition of The Swinging Wake is a docent tour slash orientation for Yensid's School of Sorcery and Necromancy. If that doesn't make any sense, it can be explained by watching this video here...

This recording is meant to be downloaded into a mobile mp3 player and listened to while at Disneyland. It can be enjoyed before, during, or after Harry Potter Day at Disneyland.

DISCLAIMER: Only those who utilize proper ear-covering headphones or those with an ear-fitting gasket of some sort will be able to truly appreciate the full experience of this tour. Those attempting to listen with run of the mill earbuds may have difficulty discerning portions of the tour over the ambient din of the Park itself.

This recording has been timed to work best if walking at an easy, casual stroll. Do not walk fast. Picture the frustrating parties of people who spread out in front of you and walk at a pace that can barely be described as moving - that's how slow you can go. Relax. It would be near-impossible to fall behind the pace of the tour, which has several specified stops along the way. 

Simply right click on YensidsDocent.mp3 below, download the linked file, load it into the mobile mp3 player of your choice, go to Disneyland, press play, and we'll take it from there.

Draco, Luna, Gilderoy, Ginny, Viktor and I are waiting for you to join us...

[EDIT]: If you are downloading this recording in 2012 or later, ignore the reference to the date at the beginning of the recording, which pertained to the 2011 event.

The Brutal-Righteous Brothers, as I've decided to start calling them, dropped by my new pad to get my show back online and record a second experiment in combining our efforts. Everything went wrong from there. Here are the results.

I've had a new episode recorded and waiting for weeks now. The newfangled Host won't let me upload it.

At some point this will be remedied. Till then...
