post titled: hometown anti-hero.
post subtitled:after primarily being exposed to european media -who often demonised her, it suddenly hit me: oh, duh- i'm in amanda knox territory now...

over the past year-plus whatever post-google has been fascinated by the amanda 'foxy knoxy' knox story - it is just a fascinating murder mystery, but on my first morning back in seattle as i jetlaggedly groped my way to voxx on eastlake before sunrise i was kind blown away by the current issue of local alternative newspaper the stranger and its beautiful black and white cover photo by amanda's college friend madison paxton in which amanda's freckles are clearly in focus...

Punch Drunk loophole

"At least several hundred mile-junkies discovered that a free shipping offer on presidential and Native American $1 coins, sold at face value by the U.S. Mint, amounted to printing free frequent-flier miles. Mileage lovers ordered more than $1 million in coins until the Mint started identifying them and cutting them off.
Coin buyers charged the purchases, sold in boxes of 250 coins, to a credit card that offers frequent-flier mile awards, then took the shipments straight to the bank. They then used the coins they deposited to pay their credit-card bills. Their only cost: the car trip to make the deposit."

everything not in its right place.
Douglas Copeland talks with Kai Ryssdal about his new novel "Generation A" on Marketplace... oh, you creepathon crackberry future!
"I think we've just had to absorb too much too quickly. I've asked people who are much older than myself, I'm 47, which seemed more startling at the time, the introduction of television or the introduction of the Internet. And everybody goes slamdunk the Internet. I remember the 70s that all we really did in society is we went from rotary phones to bush-button phones, and that was it for the decade. And then the 80s came and we had music videos. And then the 90s and the Internet. We have absorbed so much in the last, not even five years, three years, it's crazy. It's almost like we want a year out to absorb it all, but we can't. And it's probably going to get thicker and faster. And again, that's where stories come in, it's a way of finding new ways of looking at ourselves, and finding new ways of surviving psychically during all this change and turmoil."

not rod stewart either.
note: google translate translated "die jungen Wilden" as "the young turks"
which would be fine except it was in a sentance about the German
National Football team... and (correct me if I'm wrong, but) as far as I know only Özöl is of Turkish origin.
