Perfect Meat, Perfect Fire, Perfect Beer: Act II

2006-04-27 :: cfuerst@niu.edu (Carl Fuerst)

The second act of "Perfect Meat, Perfect Fire and Perfect Beer" is FINALLY ready to be heard.

In this episode, we rejoin Henry and Jenny right where we left them.

Thanks to Panty Lions for letting me use some of their music in this part of the story. They're a really cool band from Portland, and you should go to their myspace site and check out a couple of their tunes.

I'd also like to thank my neighbor Matt for setting up the site with its sharp new look.

ALSO, if you sick of looking at the crappy pictures I draw, take a look at THESE pictures: they're bound to knock your socks off.

In any case, I hope you enjoy the story.

Thanks,
Carl

Perfect Meat, Perfect Fire and Perfect Beer

2006-02-22 :: cfuerst@niu.edu (Carl Fuerst)



This is the second installment in the Break Room Stories. In this story, Henry spends a summer working as a odd-jobber at Blackberry Lodge and Resort in Hayward, Wisconsin. Chaos insues.

Since this story is a little longer, it is going to be casted in one or two acts. This is the first act.

The story features music by the band Darkmoor; you can check them out at www.darkmoormusic.com and you can even hear some of their songs at myspace.com/darkmoor

We Dream of Our Dead Pets

We Dream of Our Dead Pets


So, I've fixed the podcast, and, to celebrate, I've posted a new story. This one is breif, and it is also strange. It has nothing to do with the Break Room Stories, but, I don't think I'm the only one who sees this whole project headed that way.

I hope you enjoy it, and expect Act II of Perfect Meat, Perfect Fire, and Perfect Beer soon.

Always and always yours,
Carl

Break-Room Stories

2006-01-16 :: cfuerst@niu.edu (Carl Fuerst)

The Break-Room stories are told, for the most part, by Henry Streator. Henry shows up at various and sometimes random places around the Mid-West. He's usually employed in some aspect of the service industry, where, due to his complete lack of innitiative, he usually sits in the break-room all day telling stories. His age, like his body and sometimes his philosophy, is subject to frequent changes, and, even though he hopes that you'll enjoy these stories, he'll tell them regardless. (He's a fantastic talker but a pretty miserable listener.)…
