I'm a goofball doofus with delusions of grandeur and a penchant for sarcasm. I like 16-bit arcade games, kitsch, spaghetti westerns, dames, tarantino, reefer, the clash, hunter s thompson, true love, the MC5, beatniks, nostalgia, adventure time, movie trivia, laughing, chicken fingers, and that endless pursuit of the american dream.
Also good for the kids. They encourage having slow readers read to the family pets. A dog will listen to a kid read a whole book one damn sssyl-la——-ble at a time, and it will never get frustrated, or correct their pronunciation, or start playing Angry Bird because it can’t stand listening to the slowness any more. The dog will look at the kid approvingly, because, human. Human is talking. Human is interacting.
These are not just any old-timey visitors to the Great Sphinx. This is from 1864, when a group of Japanese emissaries went on a diplomatic mission to Europe. And they just stopped by the Sphinx and posed in full samurai regalia. Seriously.
