I Dream of a Place

Ahh sweet silence...

My friends, I dream of a place: a simple place; a place without cable; without broadcast television; without the Interwebs; without computers; without cell phones; without radio; without newspapers; without access to people who have access to or know someone who has access to any of these modes of mass communication.

I dream of a place where I could go, a hovel nestled away deep in the woods of Siberia or isolated out in the middle of the Sahara Desert or on the side of a mountain in the Himalayas or in a giant glass bubble beneath the Pacific Ocean.

I dream of a place where I could go to sit on a simple wooden chair beneath a giant tin foil cone to block out all of the broadcast waves of incessant information and finally enjoy some respite, just a little respite, from being bombarded by COVERAGE OF MICHAEL JACKSON’S LIFE / DEATH / FUNERAL / ALBUM SALES.

NO MORE, I say! Stop it! Talk about something else!

What’s A-Rod up to?

I think that place is called an iPod.

I assume you will be making mail bombs in this place?

Male bombs, not mail bombs.
