Two Racquets Swing As One - The Shuttlecock Chronicles: Introduction And Prologue

Tonight, it occurred to me that the times are changing. And as the times change, we change with it. Certain things remain relevant forever (U2, love, a shot of whiskey on a cold night), while others burn out quickly (Coldplay, Amy Winehouse, HTDAAB). As you may or may not know, I have dabbled in cartooning a bit in my time. I met some new people, went around the world, had my pick of any girl, but, while you may think I would be happy, I am not. Cartooning is a hard game, where only the strong survive. I have found that, in spite of all my power and fame, I am cold and isolated. I might as well just be managing U2 or something.

So, in order to reconnect with humanity, I'm tearing down the wall, and formally resigning from cartooning FOREVAR. I have realized that we are all one and I am embracing this revelation from this day forward. But it is also a professional choice; after all, becoming a PLEBAn is a career move.

As is only fitting, I will now dream it all up again, and take my place among all the other satellites. It begins here and now, with an epic tale of a fantastic rock band, their music, and how they reconcile their feelings for the emerging sport of badminton.

---------------------------------------------------

Two Racquets Swing As One - The Shuttlecock Chronicles

Prologue

All my life, I have sought to balance pleasure and the rewarding but frustrating grind of being in a rock n' roll band. Should I seek to find my purpose through pleasure? Judge a man by his fruit. The Grammys have proven to be a very reliable barometer. ---Bono

Shut the fuck up, Bono. Play me an E chord. ---Edge

Uhh...wait...that's...a guitar doesn't go up that high, does it? ---Bono

In music, it is very easy to get wrapped up in the 4-star reviews and wraparound shades. The following story is both a cautionary tale, and one of great joy. U2, with all the power in the world, lacked a muse. But now, it has been found.

One racquet
One swing
When there's one birdie
Waiting in the wings


TO BE CONTINUED.

Despite the lack of Book Antiqua and Comic Sans, I am positively on Dave Evans of my seat.

Bring it on.

I tried the Book Antiqua, but I could barely read it. Let me try the Comic Sans.

EDIT: OK, I'm sticking with Comic Sans. Now I'm looking sharp.

She means "bated breath", but it's all good in the proverbial hood.

I don't know, ElMel. I'm already questioning your characterizations. And where's the dramatic tension?

Plus, needs more cocks.

So you're essentially telling me to give the PLEBAns what they want?

Actually, no. I was rooting for a cockfight of the chicken kind. I think that would play well into U2's lyrics, thematically.
