This past week was highly dysfunctional around me---My wife and I celebrate no holidays other than birthdays--so during holiday seasons I feel as if I am an anthropologist, living among a foreign culture while studying them.
It may be the stress created by this stupidity of capitalistic buying frenzy---that makes American society even more bizarre during these holidays. People appear crazed and overloaded by the demands placed upon them by family and friends.
to you we say happy holidays---to the rest of you chained like a dog to the holiday fence post---we say---hope you survive........
Every one of these vehicles were transporting a single person somewhere--a job which could easily be performed by a Smart Car....I am fully aware that we are a stupid culture here in the US---and that our dumb-o-meter is completely pegged out--but what idiot would spend, I am sure, a fortune on one of these fucking things? The headrest TV's are, without a doubt, tuned to honey-boo-boo.
Just purchased and on it's way here is a Sony TCS-580V....supposedly in almost new condition but missing the operator's manual and power adapter. The TCS-580v is quite the, analog recording studio in your pocket, system. A functioning, excellent addition to my tape recording collection. Slightly larger than two packs of cigarettes, and utilizing full size cassette tapes the TCS-580 can record in stereo in the field through built in microphones, or through numerous inputs, and of course playback in true stereo--think of it as a midget version of the large, cassette deck you had years ago in your component stereo system.
I am an unabashed. analog tape freak--owning multiple reel to reel, and cassette recorders. This is a wondrous addition to my collection that really works and that i put into use constantly... I am so happy to have it.
Can't trust even ancient civilizations now....
