Editor's note: despite all of the prostrations from Generation Xbox I still like Ayn Rand. In fact I believe her novel Atlas Shrugged to be one of the greatest fiction books ever written. Sure, she wrote above her intellect and the Hugo imitations with long drawn-out descriptive passages choke the book at times, the concept, plot and story are quite brilliant. Yes, she turned a 40 year old hermit virgin stalker named John Galt into a hero rapist and saver of the world but the fact that nobody else had before or after is a testament to her greatness.
While this story doesn't quite carry the weight of her Shruggian opus this is an amusing story of self-conceit. Nonetheless, her Draculian accent highlights the pompous humor and makes it a sick collaboration between haughtiness and the sublime average.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
