Good music and an interesting story, what more could an internet reader ask for? Being so close to April 1st, I was a bit taken aback by the description of ancient "vending machines", could it really be so?

Beschizza's the best thing over there at the moment. His 19A0s thing was a rare bit of brilliance. I think Peter Serafinowicz should turn it into an earnestly-narrated documentary.
