Wednesday, September 29, 2004 - Someone Must Be Buying This Stuff

A few days ago I received a catalog from The Pyramid Collection. It's pretty much New-Agey stuff.

A couple things in this catalog really caught my eye:

  • Some of you may be familiar with The Gashlycrumb Tinies by Edward Gorey (the guy who did the animation on Mystery). For those of you unfamilar, this particular piece of work is a ghastly gothic ABC primer that features small children meeting their deaths in assorted gruesome ways. It's grim and humorous at the same time. The catalog has a poster of this work (not too strange, huh) and a lunchbox. Yes, that's right, you can send your kiddies off to school bearing a tale of macrabre horror! It's the perfect gift for the goth high-schooler!
  • The catalog also has a very interesting collection of videos, including nude tai chi, yoga, and aerobics! Now, I can sort of understand the appreciation of the human form in the first two cases (not that I would consider buying these videos) but the aerobics stirkes me as soft-core porn, expecially since the video features special close-up footage. Sheesh! Who buys these things?

Hey, do ya think the nude aerobics would help inspire my diet/weight loss/excersise regime or hinder it?

LOL Well, Jade, if your aspiration is to star in a nude aerobics video someday, I'm sure it would be very inspirational! Otherwise, seeing naked nubile young things bouncing about would be depressing at best and nauseating at worst!

I know my nude aerobics video would be a warning to people like the "This is your brain on drugs" PSA

"This is your body. This is your body after a child and no regular excercise routine for 10 years! Get it?"

ROFLMAO Oh, Wendy, that is so true in my case! Watch the blubber fly! That would scare a few twenty-somethings straight, believe me!
