THE EMPIRE OF SIGBJØRN:     HOME  :  ALL COLUMNS

Sigbjørn still maintains that he is going to be somebody ... carefully neglecting the fact that all the ninety-year olds still singing into their combs in front of their mirrors, they too knew that they were going to be somebody.

It is slowly dawning on him that his shot at being a star kid actor may very well have passed, so as a backup plan, he's currently attending university in Trondheim, Norway, studying film.

SIGBJØRN'S LATEST COLUMN

the last loaf
a moment of postmodern being
12.11.04

The house is empty. There’s a fly buzzing around the ceiling light, annoying me. I turn the telly on. Coronation Street. It’s trash but that’s what it’s supposed to be, so I leave it on and walk back into the kitchen to make a sandwich.

The loaf's blue and white plastic packaging has a big, gaping hole in it, placed exactly where my patience gave in. I grab a plate from the rack and then four slices of bread from the bag... The fridge door yields a little too quickly, and the sound it makes as it slams into the wall briefly interrupts the drama of the living room ... I’m pregnant. I’m angry, cos I don’t care about you. I just don’t care.

Butter. Ham slices. Iceberg salad left from last Saturday. Mayo. And a beer, then I close the fridge. I meticulously slap the stuff together and leave the ingredients out. Reentering the living room, Corrie has given way to adverts. There’s a woman trying to sell me ice cream with sex, and then a guy who can shave in five seconds. I...

re: the first circle

This is the Intrepid Planet. We enjoy your stay and miss you when you are away. Visit often.

re: building bridges

Thank you for bringing such a fresh and unique perspective to this medium. Your talent still scares me.

re: building bridges

An excellent viewpoint, very well stated. I think this ranks as one of your best.

re: building bridges

A little poli-babble, but not too much. Interesting theory, and definitely well-founded arguments.

re: building bridges

I'm giving you a 4 instead of 5 because it read too much like a dissertation for my taste. Granted, it was peppered well with Sigbjørn-isms, but still a bit on the dry side.

re: press button - insert coin

Very well written. I'm often jealous that I cannot write in this vein. Good imagery, dialogue, use of the language.

re: press button - insert coin

re: press button - insert coin

Is it fact or fiction? To ponder that is the best thing about the piece.

re: press button - insert coin

You have a talent for science fiction. Reading this automatically brings to mind Huxley for some reason. I would suggest you develop this into a short story, as it seems to be headed that way.

re: mcwhale

I feel so, so, educated now after reading this. Thanks for adding another dimension to Intrepid!
