Well, with a twisted ankle (that I managed to destroy while sleeping; I have no idea 'ow it happened, went to bed, woke up with a busted ankle; ..I'm presently entertaining the notion of some mischievous house ghost)
(or a mischievous Dr. House Ghost., Limpy - Ed)
Har Har Ed.
Please Go Away Ed.
(that's not very likely is it, I'm having faaaar too much fun - Ed)
In any case, consequently I've been house-bound, subsequently I've been looking for things to do to get my mind off of the seering pain - oh woe is me, pity me, love me, and for the plaid-clad nubiles out there, massage me.
(it was worth a shot - Ed)
Anyway, just finished listening to Neil Gaiman's Murder Mysteries audio-play over at http://www.scifi.com/set/playhouse/murder/ and thought I'd share the wealth. (or at least the link - Ed)
It's a tale about The Name, Lucifer, Vengeance, Love and Death set in The City of Angels.
(and as Gaiman enthusiasts might suspect, that doesn't necessarily mean Los Angeles - Ed)
And it's bloody brilliant!
(and that's not just the 6 pounds of tylenol talking - Ed)
Also took in Neil Gaiman's Snow-Glass Apples http://www.scifi.com/set/playhouse/snowglassapples/ a disturbing look at the origins of Snow White's ghost-white complexion. ;)
Finally, I'm quite fond of J. Michael Straczynski's (Babylon 5 - Ed) audio anthology series City of Dreams http://www.scifi.com/set particularly the episode titled, "Samuel Beckett, Your Ride is Here"
If you haven't as yet, and you enjoy Gaiman and Straczynski, highly recommend checking them out. Can't get a better price (free - Ed), and it's worth the time. imo.
WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
All audio-tales listed above have suggestive and to a certain degree disturbing content.
But that's the point I suspect, to be jolted from comfortable normality (if you're lucky enough to live there - Ed) and complacency ..into a world of surreal and metaphysical thought.
(boy, does that sound incredibly pretentious - Ed)
OK, "Makes Your Brain Go Boom", that suit you Ed?
(better - Ed)
Anyway, hope you enjoy.
Off to find a Nurse to change my catheter.
(uh, you don't have a catheter - Ed)
I don't have a Nurse either Ed, but that never stopped me before.
(no more medication for you - Ed)
