A Vacation from Power: A Storm, Angry Birds, Jonathan Franzen @ The Firmuhment

Long post by Justin Wolfe over at the Firmuhment. In it, the talks about being left without power during Memorial Day, playing Angry Birds Rio naked with his girlfriend, and Jonathan Franzen. I think it’s about 12,000 words long.
