[SFX: beep. Owen’s in the studio at work. He sighs. He’s working on the computer, doing work things]

OWEN: Heeeeey, you’re listening to Owen in the Afternoon, thanks for tuning in, right now everyone’s getting ready for rush hour. Not me though, because I’m going to be at work for the foreseeable future dealing with this session. That’s the trick, people: always get stuck late, then you’ll never have to deal with the drive at 5. Coming up next we have some studio classics coming at you, including Oh No, I Deleted the Wrong Thing and What Do You Mean There’s Not Enough Memory???? in G Minor. But for now, let’s cue up… beach ball? Are you kidding me? [SFX: clicking] Great. Great, so great. Please, please just… stop loading and just bounce the session. Annnnnd… bounce! Bounce! Alakazam, alaka-export!Please?Come on. Oh god, please don’t be broken, please please please, that is the last thing I need… shit. Look, if you just work, I’ll… install more RAM. I’ll stop leaving you on overnight. I’ll be your friend!

SPOOKY OWEN VOICE: [from speaker] DO YOU TRUST YOUR FRIENDS?

OWEN: Oh jesus-

SPOOKY OWEN VOICE: DO YOU FEAR THE ROAD YOU NOW WALK ON

DO YOU TRUST THOSE THAT LEAD YOU

YOU ARE HEADING DOWN A PATH

THAT YOU WILL NOT RETURN FROM

OWEN: [quietly] Ok, I’d just be happy if the whole system crashed now, please and thank you.

SPOOKY OWEN VOICE: YOU CANNOT TURN BACK

WE CANNOT BE STOPPED

YOU HAVE MADE A CHOICE

OWEN: Stop.

THAT WILL LEAD TO YOUR DEATH

OWEN: Stop!

YOU WILL BE SWALLOWED BY THE EARTH

AND LEFT TO ROT

OWEN: Stop! Just… stop!

SPOOKY OWEN: YOU CANNOT TURN BACK

YOU HAVE MADE A CHOICE

THAT WILL LEAD TO YOUR DEATH

OWEN: [scared but trying to sound tough] I swear I will turn this entire thing off.

SPOOKY OWEN: YOU CANNOT TURN BACK

THE EARTH WILL OPEN

AND SWALLOW YOU WHOLE

YOU HAVE MADE YOUR CHOICE
DO YOU TRUST YOUR FRIENDS?

DO YOU TRUST YOUR FRIENDS

TO FIND YOU IN THE DARK

IT IS TOO LATE TO TURN BACK

[SFX: silence]

OWEN: Judith? When you get this, call me.

[SFX: beep]
