-- Another from Lou Beach's 420 Characters
While AV Club reviewer Rowan Kaiser appreciated what Beach did within the character limit, s/he thought it wound up being somewhat gimmicky and fell short of being satisfying -- maybe it would have been better if it were geared more towards jokes. On my end, I liked how clever and funny he could be, but I also really fancied the in medias res ones, which tended to have more heft to them.
420 Characters provides a nice accompaniment to the following: waiting in post office lines, taking a hot bath, eating bi bim bop. Con: speed readers are done before their tea has cooled.
