    Wait a minute . . . some one elaborate for me, who’s that, why is he weird lookin’? Who escaped from where?

  4. DCB says:

    He’s Bo, who has always been talked about but never there, the fourth member of Borndown. Apparently he likes to get aids and plant flags, and have a very creepifying face.

  5. norm says:

    I forget, is he also a cousin of Sunny and Moze?

  6. Brandon says:

    Jesus, your dialogue is so good it makes me aroused sometimes. Like I want to climb up on the desk and dry-hump the page. In a literary way.

  7. Scott Bieser says:

    I am going to see that little bug-eyed dog’s face in my nightmares, I just know it.

    • FrankNW says:

      Slam, bam…what scares me most is…just how illiterate and raving is this dood, anyways? To be honest, I thought the bug eyes were the best part. Gives the poor thing character.

  8. tricksterson says:

    So what kind of dog is the little one, a pug? And another lttle universe tidbit, the Jakes were created during the Depression era. I bet they have Okie roots.

  9. Enlighten me, what does exactly mean “liking to plant flags”?

    • nononimus says:

      Plant flags as in colonial explorers, or arctic adventurers and so forth. To be first to an area, to stake a claim.

      In context; to have sex with new women, particularly virgins.

    • Dotcom says:

      It’s a euphemism for deflowering virgins. A while back regan used it when she was talking to Scipio about needing to get Zora away from Bo before she hits puberty, bc Bo likes to plant flags (like how people who plant flags to claim territory).

  10. Dotcom says:

    Hmmm… The review me wonder if Gene goes into “god-mode” while he sings.

    • coyoteweeps says:

      *nods* That’s what I said last time…talk about “dark, apocalyptic” etc. Apparently he at least takes things from visions and/or sermons (if the Jakes have those) and puts them in the songs, so…maybe? Wish I could see.

      Also…”Red Angels”? Anyone who pays better attention than I do remember those in the Jakeskin stuff?

      P.S.: I -really- love the Jakeskins (in a fascinated, watching-a-train-wreck sort of way). ;)

      • Elijah Sight says:

        The alleged ‘spirit’ that Eugene channeled during his trance state was an ‘angel’ named Red Hands. And Feather referenced them in an oath, “Good red angels of God, I raised me some fools.”×068/

        • coyoteweeps says:

          Awesome, thanks! I totally missed that. I am totally fascinated by the creative process here. Spike, would you mind a lot if I opened your brain up and took a look? Just a tiny peek, I promise. I’ll wash it off when I’m done with it!

  11. FrankNW says:

    “Red Angels” sounds like some kind of liturgical chorus, maybe a parallel to the chorus from Greek drama. At least in this world (if I remember correctly), they had a group of people that played a role as a separate character, en masse, and would have lines that they all spoke as one. Not sure if I have this right.

  12. Sybarite says:

    Oh no, I have finally caught up to the present. Now what will I read. :(

  13. Longtail says:

    I am now totally going to be telling my dog to “quit fuckin’ up” when he starts doing something stupid. XD

  14. Catherine says:

    Ok now I think I need to see Borndown live.

  15. Louisa says:

    Red Angels have something to do with Native Americans, maybe? Given the Jakeskin predilection for race-based theory.
