There’s a danger, though, in regarding the Western Suburbs as a kind of food court, like a series of little China- or Viet- or Korea- or Lebanon- or Serbia-towns, enjoying the cuisine but disregarding the cultures that cooked them up, leaving “them” to deal with the mess between “authenticity” and “assimilation.”

re: Catfish.

This is a follow up post concerning the movie Catfish.

Yes it was awesome.
Yes I was surprised by how it ended.
No, I'm glad I didn't know much about the movie before I saw it.

If you've got a feel for the kind of stuff I like, and if you think there is a consistency between our respective appetites, I would very strongly recommend that you take steps to see this movie.

If you're interested, you'll find more info about the little guy over here.

And a quick video of a particularly beautiful specimen:

Archosargus probatocephalus (Sheepshead fish): where is your God now?

A little more info.

Oh shit, you sneaky bastard.

What a delicious coincidence.

Hate to sound like a grouch, but I kinda miss the old days.

[EDIT] Upon reflection, I think that's what the old days are for.

Maybe all this nostalgia business is just a function of life.
