"Welcome to the Entertainment Frontier. Out here, in this bleak land without culture, life's a vapid grind until that traveling troubadour, the Hootenanny Man, hits town. The Hoot Man is a one man megamedia band: he peddles music, books, movies, puppet shows and other forms of dissipation. Hoot Man collects the sights, sounds and stories from his wanderings in his "Entertainment Center", a repurposable instrument of distraction. Frontierfolk pay the Hootenanny Man for these tantalizing glimpses into other cultures."
