‘The Show’ by M Christian

Oh, those New York hipsters:

Their first act of Awareness Terrorism – as they called it – had been to alter some dozen or so billboards throughout Manhattan, turning cigarette ads to GOT CANCER? After that, they’d placed OUT OF DISORDER stickers on hundreds of vending machines all over the island.

Woah. For their next act of mindblowing cultural subversion they decide to patch a live feed of them having sex into a giant screen in Times Square. But they chicken out. But in the course of chickening out they get turned on so have sex anyway. But what’s this? They accidently switched the camera on!

This story is as lame as its characters.

  1. Sounds like M Christian once saw the cover of Adbusters magazine.

  2. And yet three stars for sexiness? How so? Or three stars for people who fantasise about accidentally broadcasting their humping via live feed to Times Square?

  3. Sexiness on this scale is pretty much independent from any sort of artistry. They have sex and it is imbued with an inherent sex-ness that transcends the fact the story is shit.
