Music To Read A Book Along To

Over at Largehearted Boy, Pasha created a playlist for The Withdrawal Method. It’s basically all New Jack Swing, much to no one’s surprise. God, Tony! Toni! Toné! was so good. I seriously thought they were going to change everything.

Are We Not Men

Part Three of an ongoing series about Spider Solitaire. They are really teasing this out, aren’t they.

When at the supermarket I am told by the cashier that my coupon for 20 cents off taco shells has expired, what do I do? Do I bluster and shake my fists and call for a manager? No, Hyperion, I do not. I calmly tuck that coupon back into my wallet and pay full retail price. I give up. And what do those tacos taste of, later, in my apartment? Shame.

The Other Internet

Pasha has a gorgeous story in Joyland called The Other Internet.

There’s only one virus. It’s called “Medic.” When Medic infiltrates your hard drive, it fixes anything that’s wrong with your computer. And, because of the nature of the Other Internet, “hard drive” of course means brain, and “computer” means life. The best part: the Medic icon is not even annoying. When he pops up in your subconscious, you feel only serenity. He is a handsome, kind man with a laconic bedside manner and very, very soft hands. Do you feel the icy touch of his stethoscope? Yes? That is your soul, finally coming alive.
