Sawdust, paint fumes, chicken feathers, and colorful profanity fill the air in the Darkvale production facilities, as we begrudgingly grind our way towards the modern world. Fancy electric lights now replace our firefly jars and uranium rod chandeliers, our employees are being taught the mysterious ways of OSHA, ANSI, and "Better Business", and management even plugged in a stereo system to replace our opera singing shop hobo, claiming that Klaus no longer appealed to our "younger demographic". How chilling - I suspect they disliked his recent forays into seventies disco classics.
At any rate, I was given a nudge here at my wheezing computer and informed that it has been two weeks since my last "blog", and that I need to be more timely with these little digital outbursts unless I wish to "perform duets with Klaus under that overpass from now on." These new business folk do have a flair for dramatic wording, even if I question their musical tastes.
As cameras are being wired into our shop and tomes about "Modern Web Entrepreneurs" are being thrown on top of my dusty desktop clutter, it becomes more and more clear that these changes are permanent and should be embraced, and maybe not sworn at quite as much. And so, dear weary internet voyageur, I suppose that it pleases me greatly to march into this brightly lit utopia of safety and cultural awareness, where Darkvale Studios can proudly take its place in the Modern Digital Marketplace. So help me God, if they ask us to write a mission statement, Klaus will have a whole choir to back him up inside an hour.
