fave lines:

"The old crock tearfully confided to the young salt, 'A wave of mock cashmere turtlenecks swallowed my ethnic pride, and I can't believe it's not bitter.'

"I'll be emotionally disturbed for as long as it takes."

"Now the overdrawn credits roll as the bankrupt star drives a patchwork cab to the finished line, where a broke robot waves a mended tablecloth, which is the sate flag of a checkmate career."

"The virtual master of cyberpornotopia whispered to his pixelated hologram, 'If I had you where you've got me, I'd give myself a blowjob.'

"And yet, by halogen-light, I think my loneliness as reckless as any souvenir bought with free coupons."
