Chuck Klosterman breaks down
Edgar Winter Group's 1973 Old Grey Whistle Test performance of Frankenstein. Unlike zzazazz's previous post
, there is no bonus, because "Edgar Winter's finest nine minutes"
is its own crazy good reward.

that has monthly assignments subject to peer review, essays on writing by Chucky P., and a real smoove interface. I'm not a big fan of the guy or his work, but his "distinction essays", which are only posted to the site for a limited time, do contain the kind of solid instruction you'd hafta pay money for at a real writers workshop. The quality of the submissions varies, but seems to me to be a bit better than most online freebie writers-circle-jerk sites. Just don't choke on the ego.
And Chuck. And Amiz. And Nec. This is an interview that I found to be absolutely fascinating. After countless (really... countless
...) hours spent in places like Bianca's Smut Shack,
Vlad got really, really
into chatting. I was really pretty amazed reading through this interview at how far people go on these things. Invented online personalities become real life ones. I can't help but wonder whether this is an extreme exception, or something of a norm. The next step in wondering, of course, is to wonder how many Mefites are going down this road. Hmm... could it be... you? Find out.
High scores, anyone? (Probably NSFW, but then, look at how much Vlad got away with!)
