The sky above the ruins was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.

I am greatly irritated by the contemporary use of “swag” as derived from “swagger” (AFAICT).

As far as I’m concerned, you’ve only got “the swag” if you’ve got a bag containing the plate, silverware, and candlesticks.

Although not explicitly referenced, I would not be surprised to see Taffy with swag.

Bonus points for wearing the optional domino-mask.

Here are some notes on the origin of the word ‘swag’ that generally agree with me (ignore everything in the article that doesn’t agree with me).

My daughter likes Barbie. I suppose there are some good reasons for that. I am hoping this is one of those.

If that was indeed the case, I’d be all like

Czech Radio (a song in three parts)

 

part one

Tamás St.Auby, Czech radio (1969) (exegesis) (sideways exegesis)

 

part two

shitphone, a love story (okay, okay, its a phone, not a radio).

 

part three

I was living in Budapest and volunteering at Artpool in 1993, where I saw St.Auby’s Czech radio as part of the _3x4_ exhibit. I had it explained to me in person, and at a post-opening dinner, his toddler-daughter fed me my salad piece-by-piece.

22 years later, I am reading an article on cheap smartphones, and see the czech-radio. Dumb bricks. Only this time, who is fooled?
