    I loved this story! To my dismay, MY crazy uncle John is chain smoking and muttering to himself somewhere on the streets of downtown Portland right now! He one time tried to cut off his hand because it “went bad” on him. That was before his attempt to run down my friend and I after school with a station wagon. But apparently he’s cosmically significant. I’m glad he gave away responsibility for that magic penny. He could have used it to destroy the world! At least he can still bend time. Until such point as he’s unable to walk backwards in circles around a wooden chair.

    I love the music! How can i get it?! You rule at Garageband!

  • Thanks Josh,

    Sadly I don’t think I even still have those Garageband files anymore. I am working on an album with my band, Nervous and the Kid, though:

    Thanks for listening!
