My apartment


This chandelier hangs in my bedroom. It's a little weird for a bedroom. What's really weird is that this is one of five chandeliers in our three-bedroom apartment. The only room that doesn't have a chandelier is one bedroom that has an old Tiffany lamp instead. It's like Liberace is my landlord.

You know what, when I visited I didn't even notice. I didn't even notice the wall nipples until you pointed them out to me. All I noticed was the fact that the wall swithes kept falling off in my hand.

Friends of McDougal said...

McDougal had very expensive chandeliers hung in every bathroom in his palatial estate up north of Scranton. (I don't know the last time he's been there, but it's a nice property.)

The place is nice. It's about 7,500 sq. feet and has 11 bathrooms.

McDougal suffers from chronic loose stool and must always remain near a restroom facility, so that he can address his intestinal concerns at a moment's notice.

There are no lights anywhere else in the house, but the light pouring out from the bathrooms creates a lovely ambience -- lots of long shadows and "spooky" corners.

Hey, speaking of, do you remember the old Vaudevillian "Spooky Carruthers"?

He had that bit with the wetnurse and the frogmen.

Goddamn, he was funny.

I'm not familiar with spooky caruthers, but he sounds amazing. A bit with a wet nurse and a frogman has the whole moisture motif going which to me sounds like it's genius level/

can someone tell me what "Cholo" means?

Cholo definition

The Husband said...

you learn something new everyday!

In the United States and Mexico, Cholo is a fairly offensive term implying a typically Mexican mestizo gangster. A cholo is stereotypically depicted as wearing baggy chinos khaki pants (or khaki shorts with white knee-high socks), so-called wifebeater sleeveless t-shirts or flannel shirts buttoned all the way to the top, and a shaved head or slicked-back hair. A popular "cholo" brand nowadays is Dickies.

This same designation may also be associated with black ink tattoos, commonly involving gang calligraphy, or family names and art. This particular image is from which Cheech Marin drew from in the Cheech and Chong films. The usage was more prevalent in the 1970s and 1980s than today.

A cholo might also stereotypically own a lowrider. Chicanos are said to be the first in starting the lowrider trend, as well as being the oldest established gangs of California.

I have that same chandelier hanging in my dining room. That is the only light other than the light in the foyer that came with my apartment. (other than the lights over the mirror in the bathroom) Oh....I lied, there are two other lights in the kitchen. ahaha

Ah, I see. So maybe it's just that the lowest bidder on lighting is that brass chandelier.
