Thanks Sui, I enjoyed that.
the most prominent thing I could nag at would be the diction in some parts. Just a few words that seem out of place for the most part. Something that I'm sure will be taken care of in a rewrite.
at this paragraph "I awoke later that night to discover that the portable TV had died." you could use a little more suspense to build up what's about to happen. Something as simple as working with the punctuation would probably do it. Either to drag things out, or make the thoughts there a little more jagged and uneasy.
A good read. And I'll spare any attempts at analysis.
Analog's underwear are digital. right now they're set to inverse 1 (I think that means they're on my head).
