Timeless Chatter Between the Heart and Mind: Jay Long
My name is Alice Long, and I´ve always known I was different. When I was little I used to climb up to the highest branches of the housetree at night, and watch the starships docking at the orbital stations high above. Forty meters off the ground, watching ships 30,000 kilometers overhead, with senses that could pick out radar pings and comm chatter as easily as the ships themselves. It all seemed perfectly natural at the time. There were other kids with mods at the orphanage, but nothing like that. I learned fast to downplay my abilities, keep my mouth shut, and try to blend in. Even as a kid I knew not to trust the Matrons. What would they do if they realized the Adjustments that were supposed to make me a meek little herd animal didn´t do anything? Then I messed up and gave myself away. Now I´m on the run, hoping against hope that the Matrons won´t try too hard to find me. Hoping to survive all the awful things that can happen to a girl on her own in space. Kidnappers, slavers, pirates, and yakuza - no matter where I go, trouble always seems to find me. Good thing I´m not as helpless as I look. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mare Trevathan. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/083534de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Little Good Boy had just finished eating the last of five rice cakes called dango, that had been strung on a skewer of bamboo and dipped in soy sauce, when he said to his little sister, called Chrysanthemum: O-Kiku, it is soon the great festival of the New Year. What shall we do then? asked little O-Kiku, not clearly remembering the festival of the previous year. Thus questioned, Yoshi-san had his desired opening to hold forth on the coming delights, and he replied: Men will come the evening before the great feast-day and help Plum-blossom, our maid, to clean all the house with brush and broom. Others will set up the decoration in front of our honored gateway. They will dig two small holes and plant a gnarled, black-barked father-pine branch on the left, and the slighter reddish mother-pine branch on the right. They will then put with these the tall knotted stem of a bamboo, with its smooth, hard green leaves that chatter when the wind blows. Next they will take a grass rope, about as long as a tall man, fringed with grass, and decorated with zigzag strips of white paper.

´´It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.´´ The great beginning to the Charles Dickens classic A Tale of Two Cities seems especially true this year.Next, did you know there are audio recordings that predate Thomas Edison´s phonograph by almost 20 years? The phonautogram was invented by a Frenchman named Eduoard Leon-Scott and patented in 1857, translating sound waves (shakily) onto sheets of paper. But for the last century, no one had been able to decode the information on Leon-Scott´s sheets and listen, until a team of scientists and historians figured it out.Then, you don´t get much more famous than Angelina Jolie. The acting roles that made her famous (the troubled teen in Girl Interrupted, the ass-kicking archeologist in Tomb Raider) have long been overshadowed by her personal life - the endless stream of chatter about her six children with Brad Pitt.After that, think of Cher´s hit ´´Believe´´ and that robotic, computerized sound of her voice. (Now try getting it out of your head. Sorry.) The Autotune effect that sounded so radical at the turn of the 21st century became the defining studio effect of the decade since.And finally, last month, the illustrator-turned-author Lou Beach released a book of extremely short stories - each just 420 characters long. Kurt Andersen challenged our listeners to write their own 420-characters stories. [Broadcast Date: January 7, 2011] 1. Language: English.
