If I were going to buy a mobile home, I'd buy it from this dude.
That is amusing, indeed. I just visited the website where it came from, though, and there I discovered this one, which is funny, but also incredibly creepy.
Actually it looks a lot like a promo for a cable show. If they can make a hit out of Antiques Roadshow by moving it to Vegas and replacing Mark Walberg with a bunch of fat, tatooed pawnbrokers, there's no reason they can't make a hit out of This Old House by moving it to an Alabama used mobile home dealership.
Been a while getting here, but the new fashion is authenticity. Try and keep those two forms of energy confined in the same cranium without mutual annihilation.
Authenticity seems to be a real virtue.
Until it is understood as a route to power and riches.
At this moment I think that the democratization of journalism may help the truth to emerge from fakery. Interesting how the check on power the founding fathers hoped that a free press would have, has been abdicated by the formal press to the informal press.
