Does those green things really camouflage people, or are those people just huge idiots?

Hopefully the green things are treated with bear repellent?

Eating a green bagel for St Patrick's Day.

It has been brought to my attention that there are such things.

My father gave them out at his store one year.

Nothing against either Josh, fried chicken, or martinis, but all three together for $125? No wonder the tickets for this Market Table event are moving slowly.

I could get what Josh himself considers the best fried chicken in town (at Bobwhite) for about ten bucks, and go across the road to Summit Bar and drink ten martinis.

Conversation, I suppose, is priceless.

Going to see Ian Anderson play Thick as a Brick in its entirety on his current US tour. Although I am certainly curious to know if he still plays flute standing on one leg.

Nobody is going to be doing this unless they bought tickets immediately they went on sale. Kraftwerk performing an eight night retrospective at MoMA. I saw them setting up in the atrium on Sunday.

MoMA describes the series as a "live presentation of their complete repertoire... Each evening consists of a live performance and 3-D visualization of one of Kraftwerk's studio albums." Krautrock anoraks will immediately notice that Kraftwerk has released more than eight albums, and indeed they'll be skipping the first three which they've also so far refused to release on CD.

I went back and dipped into the catalog. "Autobahn" and "TransEurop Express" are fun of course, but I hope the enthusiastic ticket-holders are prepared for the very dated filler tracks on those old albums. Bleep, squawk, hiss.

I complained about this in Annoyances a couple of weeks ago. No love for the fans. :angry:

Ah, I missed that. 450 tickets per night, and that must be a squeeze in the atrium. From the review in the Times today, it looks like they're playing some of their popular songs as well as the "complete album" each night.

Reminds me of seeing Lou Reed years ago. It was announced at the beginning that he would be playing his two most recent albums but none of his "older material." After we all sat diligently through what he wanted to play, he came out and did "Sweet Jane," "Satellite of Love," etc.

Pizza Hut in Japan has had a sausage-stuffed crust forever, but it doesn't come with mustard drizzle. Instead, you get way too much mayonnaise on it (and corn).

(actually, you can order any pizza with a sausage-stuffed crust, but you have to pay Y200 more for the privilege)

"Mustard drizzle" just sounds horrible. Maybe it's because I grew up in England, but "drizzle" has no good connotations: damp, grey, miserable...
