This can be my scan.


Told during the eyes of a anonymous teenage boy, a undeniable type of mild sees the narrator try and locate a few type of team spirit in a lifestyles from which he feels more and more disconnected. As his relations, friendships, sexuality or even his style in song and pornography start to suppose far-off from him, his alienation expands. The issues that after intended every thing to him are stripped of an essence he starts off to doubt they ever had. He fixates on a profile of a boy that he unearths on the net, projecting illusory principles upon somebody that he hasn't ever met yet feels a profound intimacy with. Feeling progressively more misplaced, he makes an attempt to see the relationship among a disparate set of coincidences, items and occasions: a lifeless, mangled chicken, the funeral of his most sensible friend’s father, a awful event with LSD, obsessive sexual fantasies and the disintegrating suburban lifestyles within which he used to be raised. Intensely emotional and disorientating, a definite type of mild specializes in the intricacies of confusion.
