Attempting Desperately To Escape, He Perished.

Oh, I like this one. I like this one a lot.

Seems Wired Magazine (a publication which I will willingly excoriate: I hate them, and have, until today, found almost nothing of value betwix, on, or near their pages) has done a delightful thing. They ask a bunch of authors to follow Hemingway’s example, and write a six-word story. The results are published here. Many of the web-only ones suck, but this one is just fucking brilliant:

He read his obituary with confusion.
Steven Meretzky

Yes, that is outstanding.

I think that’s all I have to say. Save, of course, for a digressive post-script. Stand by for that.

p.s. I’m thinking I need to update this here blog software. Blogger is cool and everything, but it’s got a couple of problems with it. On the + side of the equation, there is the convenience, the simplicity, the overall Google-ness of it all. On the – side of the equation there is my utter inability to create any kind of “previous / next” post links on the site, without hand-editing every page Blogger makes (which ain’t gonna happen, people, let’s be reasonable here).

So, contemplating solutions.
