Not really book related, but just great and hilarious pieces of writing…

Tom Waits Interviews Tom Waits:

Q: You’ve always enjoyed the connection between fashion and history…talk to us about that.
A: Ok let’s take the two piece bathing suit, produced in 1947 by a French fashion designer. The sight of the first woman in the minimal two piece was as explosive as the detonation of the atomic bomb by the U.S. at Bikini Island in the Marshall Isles, hence the naming of the bikini.

Also, Foo Fighters’ friggin’ brilliant 2008 Concert Rider:

Also, here are some cool things to do with meat and meat examples.
Fried turkey, fried chicken, fried anything, really.
Sausages, veggie sausages. Big ass kielbasas that make men self conscious. Any sort of tubed meat. Maybe a night of “Fair Foods.”
Cornish game hens.
Meat – in loaf form. Turkey meatloaf.
Bacon. I call it “god’s currency.” Hell, if it could be breathed, I would.
Bacon in any form is great. No as an entree, just in general.

…Which is itself a revision of this almost-as-funny earlier incarnation, which in turn was inspired by the legendary Iggy Pop.

Carry on.
