Now that the show is over, and we have jointly exercised our constitutional rights, we would like to leave you with one very important thought. Sometime in the future, you may have the opportunity to serve as a juror in a censorship case or a so-called obscenity case. It would be wise to remember that the same people who would stop you from listening to Boards Of Canada may be back next year to complain about a book, or even a TV program. If you can be told what you can see or read, then it follows that you can be told what to say or think. Defend your constitutionally protected rights. No one else will do it for you. Thank you.


Note that on their album Bocmaxima, "listening to Boards of Canada" was originally "watching an adult film."

This original version was sampled from end credits on a pornographic film. But this warning on censorship applies to all mediums.

My 365 art project, where I create a year’s worth [yep, 365] of digital collages, with indie songs as my subject.
