Taking It Easy with Momizi: Talk, news, and free-format musical stylings on WGNR Gensokyo News Radio. It's time once again to get very,
very personal with one of our lovely listeners. Delivered this morning by crow-mail from the rabbits at the community clinic in The Village:
“'Dear Momizi X, long time listener, first time writer. We always tune to your station at my workplace. Your news is fresher and usually less biased than some other local sources, and we find your music makes for good background sound when pulling impacted wisdom teeth without the aid of anesthetic. However, sometimes the screamers get so loud that I'd wish you'd update your playlist with something that really rocks. Like Queen. Signed, Elena Dark & Tall, Maxillofacial Surgeon.'
“Well Elena, while we have been moving in a slightly more modern direction lately with KVV⑤—and WSDM with better access to some older stock—the explanation here is actually more complicated than the eclectic musical tastes of your
tengu disc jockey. When the bombs hit at the start of the Great War in 2078, about 10 billion people were wiped off the planet. A few survived in the Vaults and went on to repopulate the Wastes afterward, but the combination of violent competition for a dwindling pool of resources and the general prevalence of subsistence living left little room for musical eccentricity in the Wasteland, while inside the Vaults tightly-controlled media indoctrination stifled the creative spark of entire generations.
“But there's an important second point that might have escaped you: Every bomb that exploded produced an electromagnetic pulse capable of wiping clean all digital media. You might be familiar with smaller imitations, those pulse grenades used to disable amok dolls and their puppet-frames? I've heard told that either side in the War specifically engineered high-altitude bombs that produced these effects solely, blanketing the greater Earth sphere in static. As a result, 8-track, DAT, cassette and almost all other portable digital media were destroyed. What's left behind is tape & disc holography—which was too expensive at the time of the War for mass distribution—and physically-wrought media like vinyl record and wax cylinder, hell, we even break out the
Edison Diamond Disc from time to time. But because of the age of the media, wear from use, and rarity, I don't get to play everything I want, as much as I want, Freddy Mercury included.
“In theory, Vault ③, built under the Layla Prismriver Museum of Sound, was supposed to catalog and preserve all kinds of music for the post-War generation. However, even in the rare event anyone can find the damn place—amidst the mists and coldest frosts, to borrow a phrase—there's tales of ghosts that stoically bar any entry. Assuming of course that's not horseshit made-up by former residents or conservation-conscious Wasteland explorers trying to deter further looting.
“Because of this we can't accommodate requests right now, but I'll still dedicate this wobbly platter to you, Elena. Just don't spare the Novocaine on my next cleaning.”

║➥This is an excessively wordy, obfuscated document that puts
║restrictions on and requires certain performances from your friends
║ as your rights were signed away by proxy through the Vault-Tec
║personnel that have durable power of attorney (this including the
║Overseer, Vault AI, and Vault Shrine Maiden). Essential points are:
║1. Barring illegal invasion of privacy, you must make yourself dispo-
║sable to the other party for the purpose of interview, press photo-
║graphy, public statements, and filming rights. Failure to present,
║representing breach of contract, along with the civil requirement
║of remuneration & possible damages, carries along magical pen-
║alization, as mandated by the encompassing local legal border,
║including a minimum of two points on the party's magcian's licen-
║se (–20 Danmaku, –20 Magic)
, within the local magical juri-
║2. Redirection of harmful intent as danmaku
by legal leverag-
║ing of spellcard rules (cf. Houraisan v. State of Japan
║cussion of legality of interminable-length spellcards). This essen-
║tially makes it impossible to permanently harm the other party, so
║long as the cause of injury can be represented in danmaku
║Border failure makes testing the robustness of this law at any great
║distance from at the Hakurei Shrine a risky proposition. This has
║the positive side-effect of greatly reducing chance of death by frien-
║dly fire. But like normal danmaku
, the pain is real. So grenade
║baseball is still a really stupid idea.

— Has there ever been a story that restarted after 6 years of hiatus? Might be a record. Of course the story can only continue if there are readers for it. As for what happened to the author that necessitated such a long interim, see >>14198 in /gensokyo/. In 2 weeks I have surgery to make my right hand functional by transferring a functional wrist tendon to my right thumb, which may make writing easier. I'll post the rest of what I have, but I need IRC to have someone proofread, and I'm not sure how to do that. At the very least, this should prove the above trip is indeed the Fallout writefag.
