A couple things I found perplexing while in DC:
-Either Counting Crows are still big in DC or they are just big at the hotel where I stayed. I heard no fewer than ten Counting Crows songs while in my hotel, and I wasn't there very often.
-Wearing sunglasses indoors seems to be big in DC as well.
Also, while I was gone I had a new story up at Housefire, the new project from Metazen and Riley Michael Parker. The story was part of their first prompt project, the prompt being "The First Time." READ IT!
Riley has been making up great bios for everyone. Here's the one he gave me:
"RYAN W. BRADLEY is a haunted house. In October it always happens, every year, that teenagers dare each other to spend a night inside him, and though many attempt the feat, no one is brave enough to stay through until dawn. The horror begins at midnight. First there is the moaning, and then the rattling of chains, and then the shadows of missing children, and finally a wave of blood that starts at the top of the stairs and ends up in the basement. And that’s all by 2am. Stay out of Ryan W. Bradley. Stay the fuck out."
