I'll have the longer post I promised tonight--I won't go to bed before I post it . . . I saw a guy on the bus today--let's call him Retro-Man. Retro-Man was wearing a brown polyester leisure suit. Now it's been at least 28 years since his clothing could even arguably be described as fashionable. How does one explain this? I've come up with the following options: 1) he was into vintage clothing; or 2) he was too poor to be choosy about clothing; 3) he has an f-you attitude about fashion; 4) he's trying to be ironic; 5) he has no fashion sense; 5) He was from a country in which this type of clothing is considered safari-wear. Any other thoughts? . . . I had to give up cable and it pisses me off. One show I just discovered blew my mind. Zuma Dogg is a show that shows that you don't need a big budget for quality television. Zuma Dogg is a hilarious in-your-face public access show in which this febrile guy named Zuma Dogg has frenetic stream-of-consciousness rants in public. He has talent . . . I can't wait to see Spider-Man 2 . . .
