Markeh and Nevi want a child. Two men cannot conceive a child. Nor can they adopt. Markeh and Nevi live in a small town, they fear death if their neighbours were to discover that they are not like the other men their age who live together. Roommate is a word with two meanings in the local language; it means "co-lodger" as normal, but it also means "co-builder", as in a kind of teammate. Markeh and Nevi still used "roommate", but meant it really as "teammate". And they wanted a child. Markeh traveled to a doctor far out of town, and pretended to be a husband lacking potency to impregnate his wife. "Is there anything...else I can do?" The doctor had a leering look, he had an air of tired violence. Too many patients asking too many miracles. "Get your friend to bed your wife. Turn out the lights, she may not know the difference." Confused and upset, Markeh arrived home to find Nevi gone, a note: singing. He went to Valeth, the green hill, where Nevi would sing some nights. When he sung he sounded possessed, as if God himself were passing through him, as if all the ghosts of all the dead were passing through him. When he sang he seemed to bring things into being that were not there before, notes that do not exist in pretty songs. He sang, near screaming, for nearly an hour. Markeh loved him and watched him and sighed. [Buy]

The first story is excellent.
The context of the second song is hilarious. I believe the gibberish is supposed to sound like English and may be trying to lampoon American songs of the late 1960's.Posted by EatBooks at December 7, 2010 3:29 AM
The video for "Prisencolinensinaiciusol" is pretty great. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcUi6UEQh00Posted by bryce at December 7, 2010 9:16 PM
And I'm waiting for StG's best of 2010 list. Hoping it doesn't end up with Kanye the way others are. I mean, seriously "Monster" is a great song but the album?...[sighs]Posted by Pedram at December 8, 2010 10:55 AM
