*Edition of 300. Clear vinyl. Silver foil jacket. Download code included.* It's beautiful outside today, though you wouldn't guess it from the darkness of your bedsit. So get up, sleepyhead, I've got a special treat for you.
The fun years have dipped your madeleine in tea brewed from mescaline. Sip it slowly as you watch the tattered clouds chase passenger jets across the windowpane. Don't miss a crumb on the plate—an extraordinary thing is about to happen.
Or maybe it already did?
Rewind, press play. People are talking about sticky shed syndrome like it's the sonic apocalypse. The entire history of the 20th century falling to dust in a shower of iron oxide particles across a broken tape head. If so, Heroes of the Second Story Walk-Up could serve as the trumpet call for its rapture. Have faith, you will be among the chosen.
In the meantime, just remember this:
Whenever a cold day at the beach leaves you goose pimpled and shuddering, there's nothing like a warm car to make you feel alive again. So pull that terry cloth tight and ask Mom to (please) turn the heat up in the Camry!
The Fun Years are still Ben Recht and Isaac Sparks.
