Perversion of a truth...

Welcome to Snippet Wednesday. I'd let you know how many it's been, but even I've lost count.

Every time I get that god-forsaken "(Not Responding)" status update in the top blue bar of programs when I'm working in Windows, all I can think is, "no shit, Sherlock."

All I got is this photograph...

I got this idea from Kevin Spencer for a 100-day recap of my yearlong photo escapade that I have dubbed Insty365, yanno, because the rule is that all the photos have to be processed through the Instagram iPhone app.

I downloaded it from iTunes the night of the Oscars but had completely forgotten about it. I just found it again the other day on my iPhone so I sat down and gave it a whirl.

It's a story set in what I'd assume is the near future or an alternate version of our own world. A young man living a rather unnoticed existence heads to his local beach to scour for bottle caps for his collection. While there, he discovers this "thing" that he can't identify and to which no one else has paid a lick of attention.
