Modern Man

This is a short story week, so I decided to do another Wendig flash fiction thing. The challenge was to randomly pick one song off your hard drive and make that song's title your story's title.

I got "Modern Man" by Black Flag. It's mostly about refusing to engage with mainstream society because mainstream society kinda sucks. As much as punk rock can be about anything, I guess.

I started out wanting to write something philosophical and deep, so naturally it turned into a shaggy dog story about simulated monkeys in a slightly dystopian near future. Oh, and there's math and mohawks.

Read: Modern Man.
