Flat & Spoiled

Wed, 04 Jan 2006 04:51:16 No, this posting is not about Momus/Comus/Proteus/Rex debutantes. Get your minds out of the gutter, folks.

Item-1: FLAT- Yes, gentle readers,  it’s the news you’ve all been waiting for, the flat tire update. It’s Day-12 and counting. I believe they’re waiting for the tire fairy to come and inflate the tire…

Item-2: SPOILED- My readers in NOLA have surely already heard about and/or seen/bought this hilarious little book of dead refrigerator photos taken by Tom Varisco. The packaging is nearly as nifty as the book itself: it comes in a baggie. Mercifully the scratch-and-sniff technology was not deployed by the author. Btw my friend and neighbor the SCAD Grad works for Monsieur Varisco and worked on the book. That’s  how Dr. A and I got our free copy. Thanks SCAD Grad.

Now that I’ve plugged Spoiled I’d like to share some of Dr. A’s very own dead refrigerator snapshots. It’s a major genre here in Debrisville. (Epic parenthetical aside: The funny thing is that the nastiest oldest and gnarliest abandoned fridges in the city were to be seen in the Garden District. Its been a long time since I saw a harvest gold or a brown refrigerator. Oh the shame of the Garden District.)

The first one was spotted on Prytania Street in (where else?) the Garden District.


These two were spotted hanging out on the balcony of the Rawhide which is a gay leather bar in the Quarter. The penmanship leaves something to be desired but hey so does mine.
