The Rural Alberta Advantage /// “Runners in the Night” /// Mended with Gold

Here’s what to listen to.

Any Harry Potter or Hunger Games book: Your parents were mean to you.
Any book from A Song of Ice and Fire: You challenge every parking ticket in court.               
Infinite Jest: You can’t seem to make a connection on OkCupid.
The Handmaid’s Tale: Your name appears on an NSA watchlist. 
Fifty Shades of Grey: You have been banned from at least one T.J. Maxx location.  
Ender’s Game: You could survive on ketchup alone.

What that ‘10 life-changing books’ post on Facebook says about you

Luke B. Goebel /// Fourteen Stories, None of Them Are Yours
Not every book is alive. Not every living book feels as if it could punch you in the face. Not every book that throws a punch does it lovingly, with a madman’s grace, as if you needed to start seeing out through the back of your head and this was the only way you were gonna. Goebel is some hell of a furious mystic, his touch annihilating whatever can’t be transformed.

"Do you ever feel like everyone is just really stupid."

"Only when I’m awake."

It’s fun to play with these ideas, but in the grand sense, the detectives are wasting their time. For all their obsessiveness, it’s somehow lost on them that the last shot of a character surnamed Dante shows him in the limbo of a coma, that Paulie Walnuts explains the difference between hell and the afterlife’s waystation to a hospitalized Christopher Moltisanti, and that Tony spends a healthy portion of the series caught in a dreamworld between life and death. (The Sopranos Family Cookbook even includes a recipe for Uova in Purgatorio—“eggs in purgatory.”) Not the subtlest motif, yet we continue to overlook it.

Stop looking for answers: ‘The Sopranos’ left us in limbo

I met a Miles today. Finally, an answer to “Who’s Miles?” The woes of pun tattoos. (at Tumblr HQ)

Tried to point to myself like “THIS GUY,” but no, just a botched thumbs-up.
