The Gobbler

October 8, 2006

passionpitgobbler.jpg      I love Canada, and being Canadian – even though, or perhaps because I came to Canada later in life from free choice rather than by birth default.  I love being in a country that has a day dedicated to thanksgiving, even if that mostly translates into getting stuffed on turkey and collapsing on the couch in a triptophan haze.

So for your turkey-enhanced entertainment, I suggest an online tour of the 70’s retro homage to turkeyness, wittily presented by James Lileks – the Gobbler motel and supper club.

Sometimes we need all the thanksgiving we can get.

    I love the Lileks, too. He always has the perfect, life-affirming photos involving shag carpeting.

    I wanted to say hi and tell you I love your site. Doppleganger is rarely wrong.
