"coffee" by christoph niemann is a story of a man's love for coffee, told largely in coffee-stained illustration. totally cute.
No One Belongs Here More Than You: Stories by miranda july: The truth is, I don’t like most contemporary short stories. They feel contrived and purposefully engineered to be “out there” or inaccessible. This is a problem with all but two and a half of the stories in this collection.
full review here.
ghost adventures: "this is a show you love to hate," chuck said mid-way though the episode at a haunted penitentiary in boise, idaho. true. as soon as they spent five minutes addressing zak's fear of snakes, it became obvious that nothing was going to happen during lock down.
at one point a dark shadow caresses zak's arm.
aaron's pocket with a water bottle opens.
an unexplained noise occurs, and seems to be two ghosts talking.
an orb is deemed not a ghostly energy.
we're creating a ghost adventures drinking game.
one drink whenever zak says "energy."
one drink when aaron says "dude."
finish your drink when zak's nipples show.
meanwhile, the google hits for zak keep coming. more people are coming here looking for info on his tattoos and this week i got the inevitable "zak bagans gay."
my favorite ghost adventurer has become aaron. his natural instinct, when scared, is to turn the camera onto himself and go "duuuuude! i just totally felt something on my arm."
