Executive Contour

"Now being a barber is a lot like being a barman or a soda-jerk; there's not much to it once you've learned the basic moves. For the kids there's the Butch, or the Heinie, the Flat Top, the Ivy, the Crew, the Vanguard, the Junior Contour and, occasionally, the Executive Contour."
- Ed (Billy Bob Thornton), The Man Who Wasn't There,

A hodge podge of good design, music ephemera, offbeat Americana, ad critiques, misty water colored memories of places I've lived and the Minnesota Twins.

I also run a little country blog called Both Kinds of Music.

The T-shirts at the State Fair are always an interesting referendum on the public’s tastes, interests and general attitudes about life in Minnesota. This year, with no hotly contested elections or ballot initiatives, and the relative demise of the Tea Party, the T-shirt landscape seems much less politically charged than it has in years past.

One year I saw a guy with his family wearing the “Silly faggot, dicks are for chicks” shirt. Truth.

This crazy ass full page ad ran today in the LA Times. Some story about religious oppression in China in an unreadable font size. It probably ran in papers across the nation. Who knows? Not cheap, that’s for sure. 

When you’re paying for something like this, MAYBE, just MAYBE, you want to hire a proofreader so your email address is spelled kingdom instead of kingclom.

Robin Williams winning Best Supporting Actor

Such a goddamned shame. I didn’t even know the man, but there’s a hole in my heart. Wherever you are Mr. Williams, I hope you don’t hurt anymore.

If you’ve ever wondered where Kennedy’s been…hanging with the Libertarians. She has a talking heads show on Fox Business at 9 at night, which I imagine has a viewership of 5.
Libertarianism, it’s like the Red Dwarf of politics.

That’s some grim shit right there. I would note that it must’ve orgininated from flyover country by the use of the name “Elmer”.
