Is it me, or did this match just hit the caffeine pedal?
So, Frank summarizes the story so far, and wow, he's willing to go blue. I mean, death-blue. He says no to linotype, no to Braddock, no to papering your bedroom with Bronte in Braille. (Wuthering Nights?) No, the end is nigh and everyone lost -- coming soon to an iPad in a megalopolis near you.
(Suck that, Vernon Irvin! Now how will you make your Wikipedia fame?)
The card motif is terrific. Smart in metaphor, fun in materials. As a metaphor, it addresses cruel luck and uncontrollable fate. As a concept executed, it's pleasantly dual-minded: sepia crinkles vs. stark black and reversing hearts. I'm pleased. More than that, I feel like I've finally got purchase on what this match is all about.
Folks, this match is anyone's to win at this point.
