Atomic Teenager

More bang for your buck.This week in Nomaville, I return to one of my perenial obsessions — the bomb — by way of another obsession — Dr. Strangelove. Both notions culminated into something of a personal nuclear meltdown my freshman year in high school during an ill-fated stage adaptation of Kubrick’s masterpiece. Dr. Strangelove vs. Madame Wadsworth recounts how I managed to raise both the ire of my drama teacher and questions regarding a certain rubber chicken — with one bad move. I had conducted the interview with Madame while penning a screed about the bomb for the Bohemian, published as Atomic Hangover. In the end, the quotes never made the story, however, I did release the interview in the “Back to School” edition of the Daedalus Howell Show on KSVY 91.3 Sonoma in September of last year. Even mushroom clouds have a silver lining.
