In Magnetic Spells, Gerry talks to his dead father on a radio that somehow receives a frequency from the unknown.
GERRY: Natalie left me. Said she didn’t want to settle. Said my peak is her bottom and she wants more out of life than I’ll ever be able to give her. Funny how people give up on people…I’m single again. Never had great expectations of myself, but I’ve always been willing to make a go of it…I do think about her…always…lost my job…collecting unemployment but that’ll soon expire…nobody’s hiring anymore, at least not for a guy with my skill set, you know, not for the things I know how to do and all…I’ve become obsolete. That’s what the woman from the last job interview told me, “You’re from a different time mister, you’re obsolete.” Hmm. That combination of words I never imagined would have been spoken to me, but…who the hell knew it would’ve worked out this way. Ha! …Yeah; I never pictured a life without her, now I’m here, stuck here and tryna find my way through this fog.
