Podfest #2 | Grace Carter | <i>still</i> Jun 5, 2010

VIDEO NO LONGER AVAILABLE Still employs a secret communication that can only be known to the protagonist. Order is desperately trying to be achieved as a litany of numbers is repeated, implying a formula or idea that she is attempting to resolve but is ultimately unsolvable.
