A part-time cabal. A fusion of assemblage art, hurly-burly, bedlam, disquiet and poetry. Indie music, art, writing and treasure. A podcast of Real Fiction featuring music from the This Isn't Just a Cult constellation of artists and stories of regret, elation, mysticism, headaches, heartaches, harpoons and merit badges. Perfect for every situation. Except four.

This Isn't Just a Cult is an art collective with a focus on collaboration and creativity. It is often absurd. It can be a comedy or a parody. It is often abstract. It is poetry and fiction. It is the bubbles of a creative community.

    The Long Lightning pt. 7 [Abstract Poetry]

    The Long Lightning pt. 7 [Abstract Poetry]

    Part 7 of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as narrated by Stephen Indrisano. 

    We left you on a bit of a cliffhanger with the ending of part 6. Sorry about that. Here's a recap. The Tammy Bins have circulated the punctuated burning airlines of manipulated spacetime with reverence and decay born of crimson electrification and mounting oracle juice effecting both my hat and your speed dot connection transmission through common feelsport and bubbling tap-taps. That about sums it up.

    We would like to thank Stephen Indrisano for his nimble wordplay performance. You can get his comedic take on the catalog of Stephen King at The Stephen King Boo! Club and learn more about his technical prowess at Indrisano Audio Services.

    This episode was produced, edited and soundscaped by Björ6n Oranj.

    Dr. Jack Billings [Comedy]

    There are a lot of podcasts out there and that means there is a pretty vast podcast community. Really, the only folks listening to podcasts are individuals who are also making podcasts. Since only 17 people worldwide are actually earning any sort of profit from producing podcasts, the community relies on each other to for technological, legal, promotional and voice-over assistance. Members of that community have appeared on this very show, and This Isn't Just a Cult's Björ6n Oranj has provided the voice of Sherlock Butternuts on Hey, That’s No Way to Say Hello, Mr. Magnet on Your Yo-Yo’s Got to Go-Go, and Dr. Jack Billings on Jack Billings Presents: Me and My Neighbor Michael. 

    In this episode, Björ6n guides you through some of his absurd guest appearances as pharmacist and mayoral candidate Dr. Jack Billings.

    Featured music in this episode includes Cypress Monolith (the Jericho Smile), Quixotic Demagogue and Jingoistic Juggernaut by Squinting Matador.

    The Your Name Here Story [Audio Collage]

    The Your Name Here Story [Audio Collage]

    Chris Campbell [a.k.a. The Creeping Man] created this sound collage for you the listener to ponder. He hopes it will spark that existential conversation you have been postponing with a loved one. Also, it is meant to inspire you to aspire. To reach for the stars. To swing for the fences. To boil the ocean. To bounce like a Muppet. To never Leggo the Eggo.

    The Long Lightning pt. 6 [Abstract Poetry]

    The Long Lightning pt. 6 [Abstract Poetry]

    Part 6 of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as narrated by Yall Yall. 

    Many listeners have contacted us about this series and asked why? Good question. Well, simply put, it's because we think about thorns. The odd bequest of a fuchsia bender to sequin a soliloquy songbird to frisk our winch and our growing branching passwords in a beret of failure that protrudes a solitary wildcat. 

    We would like to thank Yall Yall for his wonderful performance. Go over to Boothin' Pod to listen to more of his musings along with some amazing freestyle raps. It's a great listen.

    Featured in this episode is Dramas [BANG!] Art by Björ6n Oranj. You can find it on the album Dastards. It is available on all the streaming services.

    We would like to thank our sponsors of this Episode, The Halcyon Brothers. They have a brand new album, We Might Fall Apart, that is available everywhere.

    This episode was produced, edited and soundscaped by Björ6n Oranj. 

    If you prefer, you can also find our podcast episodes and other videos on YouTube.

Unlike anything else

This Isn’t Just a Cult is a podcast centered on the expression of a collective of artists. Equally sincere and tongue in cheek, this pod is perfect for fans of postmodern reconstruction of art. The pieces are then Reassembled in a pleasing way that even a casual art fan could enjoy. Strap in and enjoy.
