Day Job

Post by isfullofcrap » Sun Nov 21, 2010 4:05 pm

My day job was to keep the world from blowing up.

I managed the antimatter flow at New Edison Power.

The plasma ducts vibrated in unusual harmonies, and I recorded them.

My night job is with the radio station.

You've heard of The Doctor Power Hour?

I'm Doctor Power.

I mix my recordings, weaving the whistles of release valves and other generator sounds into trance music.

The audience grew quickly, and I started doing weekend concerts to hundreds... thousands...

Instead of keeping it safe, I tuned the Generator for music.

It exploded.

Oh well. I still have my night gig.

Ha! I like the disaffected tone.
