Michael Thorton Free

Just a struggling and depressed writer of 27 and a major fan of Kafka, Kojima, and Kubrick, with a portion of my heart remaining forever lost to Japan...and twelve years and counting to live before I die of complications due to Asperger's syndrome.

    Mine is “Last Christmas” by Wham!, though I’m more partial to the Lea Michele/Cory Monteith and the Taylor Swift covers.

    Although Owl City’s “Humbug” is becoming a fast favourite.

    It must be nice having a dog come up to you for a cuddle.

    In India they just want to take a bite out of you.

    It is not such a mystery as to why the Indian culture became obsessed with sculptured erotica.

    The Indians and the Greeks were both fans of the depiction of the body beautiful, which the Renaissance would later dive into. Fat-shaming did not exist in the Indian mind. In fact, fatness was prized as an embodiment of wealth, health and good living.

    Temperatures across the Indian subcontinent de-emphasised the need for clothing on the working man. Nudity was not considered particularly vulgar. Minimalism was the order of the day, and unstitched garments were de rigeur across the social classes until the advent of Islam brought stitching to India.

    The problem arrived, as did most others that India faces today, with the English and their Christian schools. (Strangely, such problems were rarely encountered with the Syrian Christian schools, although they were frequently encountered with the Portuguese Christian schools.)

    Read Namvar Singh’s “Decolonising the Indian Mind” to understand the rest. It’s a majorly interesting read, even if it goes over many heads.

    There’s always Foreman, unless she’s racist, and then there’s Chase…or Wilson…

    …and the medics in my family keep kvetching about House because they made their bones and he didn’t, so they call out the omissions and errors. It’s discouraging to most viewers, but we big brains get like that.

    (Seriously, my uncle’s incisions were legendary. He had the precision of a modern-day laser scalpel. Every hospital in India has someone who’s heard or seen my uncle at work in the OR.)

    Actually, it’s because Harper Lee posted him a fan letter he could not refuse.

    He posted it after she passed away.

    Khalid, is it possible that Japanese eggs are selective battery?

    I’ve seen generic battery eggs and I’ve seen free-range eggs. The orange yolks of Japanese eggs seem very akin to the free-range eggs.

    In Indian supermarkets, there’s always an attendant at the produce section who weighs and wraps the produce before ringing it up and printing out a custom-generated bar code to avoid this kind of incident at the check-out counter.

    That not happen on the other side of the world too often? Because I know it does in Florida and Long Island.

    Marty, could you put this on one of your shop T-shirts?

    I really wish these would be put in a book.

    At least then we could view them offline. This one sounds excellent.

    Who wears pins on a hat if you have a denim vest?

    The whole point of the vest is the pins.

    Pins on a hat is as stupid as fishhooks and lures. Those should always be carried in a tackle box or on the vest pockets.
