"One of You Is the Fourth"

In high school I used to really focus on trying to be "cool" but I was just in high school; whatever I thought was cool was objectively not cool. It was the early 1890's and my town just got it's first electrified street lights, I was routinely drinking half a dozen cocaine-laced Coca Cola drinks to keep me going through the day. I would go to school and then go to my job at night; I was a murderer for hire. Business back then was good, it was too dark to see anyone because there were so few electrified lights.

Things are different now, but I'm still working at my old job. They say if you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life. I don't think this is really good advice, I think we should all go around killing one another and ingesting cocaine and living abnormally long lifespans because of a curse that was put upon your entire family ages ago. Maybe I'm a traditionalist, I don't know.

Welcome to Ear Rat Magazine issue four. We have drawings, we have writings, we have digital bits and bats making up a pdf file (not sure if accurate but Harr tells me that's how computers work.) Come poke your head around for a bit and try not to get lost in the maze.

We will return for issue five.
