COTTONMOUTH by Sandra Ketcham
We cut trails through the woods with rusted machetes we stole from the garage of that empty house down the street. We swung the machetes like skilled explorers making our way through the violent jungle, breaking branches, injuring tree trunks, slicing the dirt in front of us. You explored your way right into the path of a water moccasin, its fangs breaking through the back of your ankle, the holes in your flesh covered by mud and moss. And I dragged you all the way to your house, to your father, and I watched as your mom panicked, called an ambulance and smashed her hand in the screen door, the droplets of blood marking the way for the medics. And I listened to your dad blame me, and then I listened to my dad blame me, and I wondered if you would blame me. But you didn't. Because you died. LS

I really like this story. I thought it unfair that the narrator got blamed after he/she had dragged the friend home. It was very precise and beautifully written. The only problem for me was I didn't know what a water moccasin was. So now I've learnt something.

Because he hates us and never wants to release Detox, Dr. Dre has revealed plans to work on yet another project outside of the music studio. This one's not related to his Beats By Dre Studio headphones, at least, and instead finds him teaming with Crucial Films on a new horror movie called Thaw. The premise of the flick is that there's some great evil, or whatever, emerging from the rapidly melting ice in the Yukon territory in Canada. Waka Flocka Flame, who crushed hip-hop's modus operandi in 2010, has been working on his sophomore LP, titled Triple F Life, for close to two years with no potential release calendar on the books. That changed last night though: Waka Flocka says the album is due out on June 12. You can expect it to come out around then, probably, as Waka's "Round of Applause" is a mega hit on rap radio Dr Dre Beats Studio, and his label is sure to try to strike quickly on it.
