Lionheart Radio

Buck News

Only six bucks? Really? Yes, because the world is a vampire, then I go downstairs, learn O’Toole took charge from his coffin, and find out that the shows cost nothing. Who handled the blunder?

I can’t get it off my mind. Inflation ruined the “Buck Rogers Show” a long time ago in a galaxy here on earth. A Mars bar costs twenty bucks online for its chocolatey goodness. WOW Radio never paid the bills.

Buck Rogers In The 25th Century staring Ottis O’Toole directly in the face. Issue number ten of the comic book had been folded back neatly and placed on the edge of the messy coffee table in a gross, ugly room resembling a war room after a bomb attack. Ottis created a fine studio for himself. Only wearing a green speedo, like a drooling baby in the radio universe. Fruit flies swarmed into a cooler beside the fridge and started spreading out. He had violently taken a swatter to them. The apartment was worth the price of making the comic book, but it was a studio home, and there was no place like home, no place like his own coffin. The empty bag of Doritos was sitting on the edge of the stained carpet beside the empty pizza box. There was a small pile of dry vomit from the weekend.

Ottis was staring at the muted TV interrupted by manic flies and naked images on the Hustler business channel. Heart racing, Ottis was wondering how much he needed to save to buy premium porn and pay the bills. He wanted better porn and Hawaiian pizza. Sometimes, he was a philosopher when he wasn’t a radio star. A pepperoni slice was a metaphor for the world and he hunched over the pizza box thinking about lies and truth. He loved pizza. After devouring the last slice of last week’s pizza, the gas churning inside his stomach needed somewhere to go, so he let it rip. The lion fart smelled like true Lionheart art. More fruit flies swarmed. His remote friendship with Mike Rogers and all the lonely online memories.

Comic Books, for a long time, have been created as art. Sometimes, it reaches out.

Ottis didn’t really know Mike that well and never trusted the bastard. Mike really hated Ottis. I never bought into any of it. I’d just listen. I can find my six favourite shows on earth and it’s worth a whole lotta love. It starts out slow, but then Buck takes a turn for the worse. There’s a serious heavy metal funk. Really retarded; I put a stop to it all.
