For somebody who has been as belligerent and personal in this thread as you, it is amazing to see such thinness of skin.

Oh please. Argumentative is not the same as belligerent and personal. Have I deliberately insulted Foo at any point? I don't recall doing so. I may have been hard on some of his style selections, but no harder than he is on many occasions.

And what does it say that you are charmed when Vox calls you a peon?

As one of the SFers that have probably engaged in the most of these "safaris and shit" I can say the only exotic stuff I have on display is the Kazakh hat (a white version of this so it's def semi-hidden cuz it's ugly):

a really small metal giraffe and some bird's head that was acquired through a set designer who had a lot of Victorian taxidermy (i.e. no cool anecdote). I'm not about to cover my place in African masks and elephant tusks or whatever + most of the stuff you find nowadays isn't really good. I am typing this sitting on an Herman Miller chair, my computer standing on an Herman Miller desk with an Herman Miller file cabinet just nearby.

Come on, now you're just using reductio ad absurdem.

Whatever. To me you look like a bully on one side and a whiner on the other. I am glad you see yourself differently than that.

For Funiture Foraging, I prefer burglary to safaris, personally.

I think you have me confused with someone else, but as you say, whatever.

All I'm saying is that I don't want my living space to be (mainly) autobiographical, especially when it pertains to travel.
post #1749 of 2411
That isn't my goal either, and is really ignoring the larger point that I was making, which is that I want my space to be very personal.

Ever noticed that when inspector whatever enters the big bad psycho's empty apartment he is shocked by how impersonal it is, like a hotel room or an office space, a complete non-place (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-place), a place of passage not an inhabited space. This clearly underlines how much of a big bad psycho the big bad psycho is, the reader doesn't need a map to cuckooland to know the big bad psycho resides there permanently, his non-place is the physical embodiment of it.

God. I didn't think I was being this unclear.

Going on safaris is not bullshit. People on SF claiming they are going on safaris to get their furniture is bullshit. Understand the difference?

My space is extremely personal. It is exactly as I want it to be. It just isn't a cliche.

Skinny Goomba makes his own furniture. Medved buys incredible, unique pieces at auction, and often restores them himself. I have already enumerated how my home is decorated with objects that reflect our interests and our travels, so your comment about people not going on safari to acquire their furniture is pretty much wrong, or you're being overly literal about the safari thing.

And I would like to gently and politely proffer the idea that your room is, in fact, a very attractive cliche.

C'mon Foo. As a lawyer yer prolly too busy to travel. So get rid of all that cliché and replace it with a tableau that reflects Honest Living.
