Some old bullshit

After a refreshing bike ride this afternoon, I was cleaning up some old files off of my computer. I came across a folder full of old stories I'd written in college. Most of them are crap, but there were a couple worth salvaging. Here's a creepy one I wrote in 1990. Hope ya'll don't hate it.

Simon's favorite CDs include:

Keane - Hopes And Fears
(oft compared to Coldplay, which is an injustice)

Various - DJ Abstract's Sweatbox Mix 5

Eurythmics - 1984 (For The Love Of Big Brother)
(apparently director Michael Radford didn't like the soundtrack; idiot)

God - Appeal To Human Greed
(KMart and JKFlesh become positively cross and nail your head to the floor)

Public Enemy - Fear Of A Black Planet
(welcome to the terrordome, mother fucker)
