Good stuff, Erik!
I love this show! I watched all the shorts during the summer they first aired-the kids my mom babysat, my brother and I watched Nick all day and I was rapt whenever the shorts came on, even if we had all been talking through the show that was playing. I bought the first two seasons off Amazon twice (once for my niece and nephew, more recently for myself) and. like others, have been agahst at the long promised, but long delayed, dvd release of season three. I need more P&P! My favorite moment is in season two, with Bus driver Stu getting angry at a scarecrow not answering him and, during another scene occuring in the foreground, you see him viciously attacking the mute straw stuffed man. Hilarious, nostalgic. I am a junkie for it!
This show is just as amazing now as it was back then. And Iggy Pop as the father of a young Michelle Trachtenberg was perfect.
Jake's book on Tokyo's crimes was fascinating, especially because of the anthropological comments -- Japanese often take off their shoes and socks before committing suicide, reporters butter up cops and take gifts to their houses to gain case information, the yakuza push younger criminals to confess to crimes they may not have committed in order to later "promote" them, there are "host" bars for lonely women to waste money on greedy Romeos, etc. It's also a wrenching portrayal of sexual slavery and abuse of foreign women who get worked over for three months until their visas expire and whose wretched lot is often ignored by the cops because these women are merely foreigners. My heart goes out for the tragic and evil loss of Helena with whom he wanted to share investigative excitement. Jake is to be admired for his continuing efforts to combat sexual exploitation in Japan.
Indeed you're right, dd. Fixed!
nirvana never released a record on k, you must be thinking of kurt cobain's appearance on a go team 7".
I think hermeneutic toolkit is a great punchline.
I haven't read the book... but considering Hedges' history with Occupy, I wonder whether his failure to provide readers with some alternative or solution isn't deliberate. After all, Occupy doesn't propose to lead people to a new world, but rather tries to inspire them to lead themselves to it - and to reuse a cliche, the first step to revolution is admitting there's a problem.
ReadyMade teaches the basics and helps a lot in trying to cope of with some small tailoring requirements. I loved Stitch 'N Bitch as it taught me basics too and not only that, but also i made a dress for my daughter after learning from it. Very nice guidance if followed in sequence.
I THINK IT'S A MYTH THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY OWN COPIES OF GRASTRONOMIQUE. I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE ON SOMEONE'S COOKBOOK SHELF.
SAVE ME WHITE PEOPLE! Gawd, this book is such Orientalist schlock. I am not surprised Powells Books featured his culturally-appropriating ass for months. Has he even met any brown people? This IS Portland, after all.
sounds like a nutshell and no opportunitty to even divulge into this book any longer...which is great.
that one dead a week in the Oregonian says that 37 of the 4o something dead and homeless were and are white.
