Coming to you in living color, from the heart of the global communications network to the darkest recesses of your imagination — this is the Popdose Conceptual Theater of the Airwaves.

Pull down the screen inside your head. Open your ears.

Are you comfortable? Then let’s begin.

Close your eyes…

And watch….

Greetings, Muggles. We’re back with our latest journey to the center of your head, this time with an imaginary soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

I haven’t got much in the way of notes for this one; most of the correspondences are pretty self-explanatory, I think — but of course I’m always glad to answer questions in the comments. Your suggestions are also welcome, as always.

So I hope you’re settled in — because it’s time to wake the snake…
