Corned beef as high as an elephant's eye

Quick getaway this week to the far north. Jeff was a Katz's virgin, so he and I had dinner here after seeing Exit through the Gift Shop at Landmark Sunshine Cinema.

Best theater review blurb EVER

"…the Durham, NC-based theater
can be seen from space."

-- from a review of Blackbird in the Triangle Theater Review,
a free weekly e-mail theatrical newsletter


The beauty of innuendoes

I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendoes,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.
 –– Wallace Stevens

Current show at Manbites.

Design: Rebekah Miel, QuickBrownFox Studio

Time Suck of the week! 

Duke University Libraries has an online archive with thousands of vintage teevee ads produced by ad agency Benton & Bowles in the 1950's-1980's. The search function is retarded and the iTunes interface is a bit clunky, but prepare to waste a lot of time scratching your childhood nostalgia itch. (I got 8 of 10 correct on the Ad Knowledge quiz!)

Here are suggestive screen grabs from three of the ads. Can you identify the products? (Yes, one of them is G.I. Joe, but can you identify the specific brand of G.I. Joe? And no, it's not Castro Street Clone Joe…)


is in town, and so is Doug/soundbear69 .

Tokyo Sun Ha! Ha! Funny Pages

From Kanomi-san, my new favorite online comics site:

USA newspaper comics for Japanese audience to learn English and American cultures. It's fine stuff for you online brought to you by great Tokyo Sun newspaper company, a division of the Pikajuna Pachinko and Cigarette Vending Machine Company

So far, in addition to Nature Punchman, GO!, it has featured Pruggers, and Sinister Overalls Boy. I'm really, really looking forward to Why They Not Married? Apartment and Oni-Man in Purple Wetsuit.
