Goblinhood Satyricon ends at 36 minutes 10 seconds. He includes a post script.

This is the conclusion to Goblinhood Satyricon by James Beoddy. with brief commentary.

Unforgetable neck-glitch is where, between the last two chapters in typescript, Gob’s head falls both to ground & to his “bloddy stump” (like the “2 Christs!”) (Actually no - it means the bloddy neck stump of his head.)

But here’s a tape / reading glitch: Goblinhood (narrating) mispronounces “Ex-Lax”.

Starting at 46 minutes, Jim reads his story “Picalilly And Death Perception In The Muffin Realm”.

Also with brief commentary.

One hour 31 minutes
