    Are we talking about LOTR or racist furniture? Someone please make up their mind.

    It's okay. I just want to know whether to brush up on orcs and elves, or the repressed memories of my own dehumanization.

    What are you smoking? Asians are almost exclusively ConTrad. Except for real Asians. They sleep on the floor and use paper for walls.

    :foo:

    I had composed something more elaborate. But I realized that pretty much says it.

    I have to admit that I prefer Love and Rockets.

    Reading the WSJ article noticed a Matt reference:

    Another relatively new phenomenon is "spezzato," which literally translates as "broken in two,"

    Wikipedia tells me Love and Rockets is an English alternative rock band formed in 1985 by former Bauhaus members.

    As far as Asians go (who are arguably whiter than white in many respects), I am pretty damned white myself, and even I am not white enough to command a knowledge of obscure 80's alternative rock bands.

    That must mean you are pretty damned Asian.

    I want you to know that even though no one else remarked on it, I noticed (and appreciated) this little bit of not-so-newlywed humor. Still not as good as fathermatt's "Jew by injection," though.

    Surely someone played "So Alive" at a party in college. Brown must have had plenty of aspiring hipsters around the turn of the century who listened to that stuff.
