Soundtrack to the End of the World
A suicidal nudist strolls into traffic. An eccentric Buddhist claims he can occupy other people’s bodies. All the while, whispers of a new form of entertainment blow through town. Prompted by these strange occurrences, Marty Raft, a not-so-gentle giant, investigates and discovers underground clubs peddling music that induces an out-of-body experience. Marty and a wannabe comedian, Corey, set out to prove these special frequencies are nothing more than a hoax, or at worst, a mass-drugging. Instead, they uncover a secret with world-ending possibilities. If you can hear the music, it’s already too late.

A few days ago, I woke up with a clogged, ringing ear. This isn’t the first time I’ve had to deal with ear problems. As a child, I was plagued with ear infections.

Friends: Welcome back to October. Our time is here once again, and every fiber of my peculiar makeup is shivering and shuddering in anticipation. Each day is a brilliant, auburn surprise. Every moment is a sliver of autumnal delight. Craggy orange pumpkins have again taken over storefronts and stoops; apples are piled high in baskets
