Great interview! Also so fascinated with the sideshow life.
In a past job I got to meet the Fleet Family aka the Lucky Daredevil Thrillshow (http://www.luckydaredevil.com/) - husband and wife sword swallowers (+fire and snakes, also Jill sword swallowed while preggers). Here's a mini-doc about their home life http://vimeo.com/65971233
@annejumps @NeverOddOrEven I strongly feel levels of squat toilets are strongly, positively correlated to levels of spry old people.
These are wonderful and may I point you toward the pioneering work they've done in the field of "Guys With Fancy Lady Hair"? http://www.thebolditalic.com/articles/3547-guys-with-fancy-lady-hair
Welcome @jazzloon! And where'dya get that rad raglan shoulder denim shirt?
Thanks, Jia! You will be missed. Best of luck out there on the internets. Just did the right thing and signed up for your Thing.
@AmbiSinister Best advice, seconded. Much needed. Also, defenestration is the best word.
@pollypeachum YES, Birdy totally holds up. So does saying "it grumbles my guts."
My entry level fancy is this coat! which I had a small heart-attack about buying but intend on looking super cool in for the next 20 years. So maybe outwear if you live in a place where that makes sense?
@PennyCentury While I've always been more of a lurker than a commenter, I learned so much from those threads.
Totally with @Up_cubed on the on-pointness of the 'Pin this week. Galactic Rabbit knocked the wind out of this Gemini.
The best thing I did last summer was make rhubarb vodka. Old glass milk bottle + a bunch of cut up rhubarb + shake in enough sugar to coat + cover with vodka. Leave in a cool dark place for a month (in my case, bedside table). Drain out of the liquid and drink. It's dangerous- I drank almost the entire thing sans mix on a beach on Labour Day and it was the best weekend of my summer. GET ON IT NOW.
