Top Five: Matt Runkle


Top 5 Pieces of Tone
 inspired by a class taught by Arda Collins

1. Thanksgiving
Something that hovers between ritual and neutrality
Examples: fake wood laminate, canola oil, soap, oatmeal

2. Diminishing blister
The regaining of control after a rough patch
Examples: trichotilomania, clean sheets

3. Selsun Blue
Pleasingly sharp and insidious
Examples: creosote, Good Humor strawberry shortcake bar

4. Glory Be
A type of propaganda that transcends itself and grows warm
Examples: Sunday, August, Jehovah’s Witness tract, waiting room bibles for children

5. Muddled reflection
A satisfying loss of identity
