SkyMall + booze = drunkMall

Probably the only reason I'm not crushed under a boulder of debt right now is that my traveling days came to an end just as in-flight WiFi became a thing.

Falling into the category of people who need to drink before getting on an airplane, giving me a copy of SkyMall and the ability to apply a credit card to outrageous purchases right then and there would have been much too great a temptation for me to resist.

Indeed, if you Google "craziest drunk online purchases" or some such similar query, you'll get a good laugh out of the things your fellow Americans decide they must own while in a drunken state: an entire pallet of Campbell's soup, bagpipes, 10,000 ladybugs - you name it. The true wonder here, though, is that: until now, inebriated e-shoppers had to seek out these products. Until now, there hasn't been a catalog site designed with the buzzed browser in mind, putting everything in on place.

Until drunkMall...

How I Was Bitten by a Jaguar

Tyler Mahan Coe

My bio on the Show This website mentions that I've been bitten by a jaguar. People ask me about it quite often. This morning, I typed out the story in private correspondence and I may as well share it with the public.

My father was a pretty eccentric person.

From the years of 1987 - 1989, our family lived in a large house on a great deal of property in Eldon, MO. Now having the means and the inclination, my father took the opportunity to come into possession of several exotic animals: two jaguars, several mountain lions, a tiger, a young chimpanzee, many tropical birds and some horses.

Stirring the 3-Pound Mini-Bucket of Almond Butter

three pound container of almond butter

I bought a 3 pound mini-bucket of almond butter from Amazon.

When it arrived, the oil had separated and risen to the top of the container. As I am experienced in nut butters, this was no surprise and to be expected. You simply have to mix that mess up. The issue presented by this particular mess of almond butter was the volume, specifically the depth, of the container. No spoon in the house could reach the bottom and provide ample length to grip above The Butter Line.

The Lovers, or, The Brothers: How to Get Away with Murder Every Day

L'amoureux Marseilles Tarot card Jodorowsky


From The Fool to The Emperor, the cards illustrated an accumulation of massive, individual concepts or energies. In The Hierophant, we reached a point of ("sexual") interaction between those energies. From there down, the Tarot is a theater of play between modes of Consciousness, strengths (or weaknesses) of Will, Physical/Emotional energies, Spiritual states of being... You get the idea; you're alive...

Every bullshit, flea market psychic hopes The Lovers will turn up in a reading. The only card that is more effective in manipulation of a client is XIII, the Nameless Arcanum, often called Death. The true lessons of both cards are more similar than you may first suspect.
