Reens, these are really fucking good - especially these two. They're funny, but not in the standardly disposable fashion. They're small pieces of cultural commentary and criticism wrapped in imagination. This has legs - you should write a whole book of them, a fictional history, a fictional alternate history. I'm trying to think what they remind me of - Calvino? There's a bit of Sorrentino's Lunar Follies here, a fine book indeed. But there's something else I can't quite nail down...

You should expand this - already planning on it? I almost wanna copy the format I like it so much.

Good work man.

Also - terminii? I love it, but is that really a word - I thought it was a single "i" - though this way does look cooler, almost reason enough to use it. Made me think of Talk Talk's "Runeii" - deliberate?

cheers ads, there's some more on the way. Not sure on the best practice usage of termini/i - please bear in mind these are only drafts and that they'll pick up correction and expansion in proper, neat, fair redrafting.

Also, it's odd, but whenever I want to remember their name, I can't recall "Kings of Leon" but instead bring up "Kaiser Chiefs".

And all these samey bands these days - I love their haircuts. I think they're so fine. They blow my mind.

That's why I go for the cheap and easy jokes sometimes...

Impressive music writing. Music writing is hard to get right, it's really easy to go over the top and stop making sense, but this is quite well done.
