Mom doesn’t understand how a man feels. But we feel like revisiting the world map concept, observing the global hum, cranking off, reading the signs of an obvious dungeon, getting high off of explosions, dumpster diving, loading a bar with fuckheads, assigning virtue to Purple Hunchman, understanding King to be a farce, chatting up Pink Bug, extracting the fish detector, engaging in work-related familial conflict, thinking of expensive books, and spawning an Allen ghost head. I’m always telling the kids in the city: if you’re a man, become a man like me.
