Alien (preview) (Sunday, 2010 October 31)

November 6, 2010

I was struck for a moment by the feeling this weekend that although this country often presents itself like a wacky stereotype of itself, there’s a certain amount of darker shit that happens too. We’re never in any danger directly, but every now and then you hear something that makes you think hard about the problems here, which are more serious and threatening than the abstract "people are taking money they shouldn’t" and "not enough places to get drinking water". This isn’t just Abbot and Costello stuff, with a buffoonish Gendarme looking for a bribe. This is serious.

Anyhow, long story short, here’s more random crap I’ve bought lately.

Bottle of peanuts, and a wooden penis bottle opener.
