Inteachán – Book Five: The Tallest Tower Crane 5: 21 ‘a celestial loop’
The film cuts again and this time an image of Stooky Bill materializes in an enormous close shot and, like the worst excesses of popular television from a time way gone, begins to sing in the most mocking and creakiest of voices;
‘There is no Future now
Nor was there ever before
And with the Past behind us
There is now just Nothing evermore …’
Cut once more to another staple of popular television, the ultimate heart-string-tugging telethon as the video statements made by the doomed begin to play across the sky on a celestial loop accompanied by teary, swirly music and peals of canned laughter.
