rich.
and crass. that was the message delivered by the hummer i saw parked on harbor today. a hummer complete with custom paint job in a swirl of grays and blacks with highly stylized and completely nude women surrounded by brilliant bursts of color scattered over the whole of it. topped off with a light bar of flashing yellow lights. i couldn't decide whether i should be offended or relieved to see such honest pairing of destructive wealth and destructive attitudes. at least the offensiveness wasn't buried behind a facade of genitility.

    Now I know what to put on the postcard I send you.

  2. yeah. i thought it was pretty awesome myself. it's not often i do a double take of dumbfounded wonder at an automobile. this was one of those times.

  3. you know what, i've seen that hummer too. i was really surprised that you can show nipples on a motor vehicle. this is the reason why Henry Rollins calls the Hummer, and pardon my French, "the dickhead."

  5. you know, last night as i was willing myself towards sleep, that very question popped into my mind--wouldn't someone driving a vehicle that shows nipples get a ticket or something? i mean, if i were to show nipples, i'd get arrested for indecent exposure. not that i have any desire whatsoever to flash the world in general. but you know--just for illustration's purposes.

    glad to provide a laugh ruby g.
