DNR


Here we are on the cusp of Obon. I thought I'd exhume a piece I wrote about the holiday back in 1998, which netted me first prize in a writing contest. It's a pdf link, so click and scroll down to page 10.

Please forgive the cheesy photo and lousy title...


On the turntable: Julian Cope, "Peggy Suicide"

Peggy Suicide! Nice choice!

Excellent piece of writing too! I liked the cheesy photo and I think "forced to shout in bad Japanese" should be the title of your next blog.
By the way, back in 1998, you couldn't spell queue.

No, they were all playing billards of course, the stakes being the peanuts, whose shells they'd spit on deck.

I found it all pretty unquel actually...
