God in Stereo


With half an eye on the road, Rick shuffled through the CDs in the centre console of his HSV Commodore.

‘Offspring?  No.  Silverchair? No.  Metallica?  That’s the one!’

Eagerly anticipating the throbbing surge of distorted guitars and pounding drums, he tapped the volume up button on the steering wheel a couple of times.

‘Talking to myself?  That’s okay,’ said Rick.  ‘No one’s listening.’

The ever increasing beat of the music slowly caused Rick to increase his pressure on the accelerator.  Unaware of this, and becoming less involved in the more serious aspects of driving, he slammed the wheel with open palms and sang whatever words he could make out.  Track three was his favorite so he pumped it up louder still.  Half way through the song, Unforgiven, the CD began to jump and skip as though it was scratched.

‘Man, that’s a new disc,’ said Rick.  ‘What’s going on?’
