Why I let my subscription lapse.

There's an old issue of ReadyMade in the bathroom and this little snippet of hipster prose on how to paint "space-defying white floors" has been peeking out at me all day whenever I pee:
1. Put on a jumpsuit. 2. Attach a paint roller to a broomstick. 3. Pour some white matte porch paint into a tray. 4. Paint floors from one end of the apartment to the other. Keep plenty of rags on hand to pick up any dust or dirt as you go. For best results, work while listening to Led Zeppelin III and making progress through a 12-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon.
Emphasis mine, obviously. Do you think that guy who writes Stuff White People Like just pages through ReadyMade for inspiration?


  1. Hilarious.

    You should totally try that seitan recipe - it rocks! Oh yeah, and isn't it weird how everyone from diaryland keeps migrating to blogger? Good to see you here!

  2. Everyone knows you should listen to Houses of the Holy when painting floors.

  3. Wait - people paint floors white?
