Teaser: Hiding Day
Even after all these years, Earl still doesn't understand Hiding Day.
Teasers: Kilruane & The Shadow of the Mountain
"Kilruane? Yeah, it's on the north side of the mountain, just below the bald. The state lines all run together 'round there, so who knows which one it's in. Been here forever. Mostly Irish and Welsh folks what come over, some Melungeons too I reckon. Ain't nothing up there but the church. They built that first, you know, there in the shadow of the mountain. They do things the old way. Only one old road to Kilruane I know of. They finally ran electricity up there back in the 80s, though I don't think many use it. They keep to themselves. Think they like it that way. They ain't bad folks. But it's hard living in the shadow of the mountain. Like I said, ain't nothing up there. Best leave them folks be."
"You ever feel that urge to step closer to death? I'm not suicidal. I like my life. I like cheese fries and racing movies and watercolors. But I think being out here in the wilderness changes you. Everyone warns you about the dangers of cities like Richmond or Knoxville. But out here, the danger is rotten trees ready to fall on you. The danger is loose gravel or a hidden root that causes a fall that breaks your ankle. The danger is food and water and time--gotta be off the trail by winter. I've been hiking two months now and I've never felt the kind of focus that I do. And I think that's why I'm out here. I need focus. I need a change. Maybe coming out here will show me who I really am."
Teaser: The Tearducts of Time
Music by Co-Creator, Producer & Composer M.T. Goins. ""Pretty early on in development, I decided to set strict parameters for the score. Only acoustic instruments would be used. Several of the instruments are uncommon, handmade, or played in an unusual fashion."
Teaser: Sister Geneverie
"Have you er'lived in shadow, or have you er'walked where my steps took me, or have you er'et the thin food of the mountainside? The world is not how you reckon it is. Geneverie, they called me, at my birth. Then Sister, after mother schooled me true. I learned the deep truths, healing herbs, the way of living and dying, the marks of power, the language spoken by day and night. You do not know the terrible things I have seen as Sister. And you do not know what I have lost."
"Now, down in Kibkibbney, they talk about the Jarfly Man. That's down there, y'see. Up here in Kilruane, you hear about the Love Talker. Different names, you see? Up there, in the bald of the mountain, it ain't fit for a man. But he ain't a man. Not really. I had an idea about that. Now you see down in Knoxville they got big ol' books. They'll tell you about holy lands all over. And up in those lands they have stories about men who ain't quite men. Now by my reckoning, we got our own holy land right here up in the bald. And we got our own special feller."
