How will relationships change in the age of the internet?
Victor likes to admire his girlfriends’ online pictures. These girls can’t seem to stop posting self-shots to Facebook and all the social sites. Soon all the young men in his fraternity are competing for the attention of these online, amateur pinups.
The classic problems of maturity are complicated for Victor by a set of new challenges. He struggles with smartphones, text-games, recreational pharmaceuticals, porn addiction, reversed gender roles, and a motley crew of well-meaning yet misguided mentors.
The technological quandaries get even more confusing in the maelstrom of booze, drugs, and social competition. He gets in fights, pops pills, and embarks on a quest to learn why young women post so many pictures and why guys can’t stop themselves from looking.
He might just find a girl to fall in love with – on both sides of the camera.
Throughout these discoveries, he wonders:
What kind of love is this? The wired kind.

Two-Minute Glory is a short story for new college grads and other youngsters who are excited about moving to new cities. As I was working on the mix and master of this podcast, it started to become apparent that there are some other themes snuck in there as well. Fear of Public Speaking, for example, that’s in there as well. The question of who really initiates and controls romantic relationships was skirted around and I feel that this story definitively proves that the controller of romantic relationships is the man. Or the woman.
