Because of dipping sales Chrysler has hired me to change the image of who drives the 2009 Dodge Challenger. They call it repositioning, refactoring. repurposing and consumer reengineering. Just last night I drove my new baby through the porte-cochère of the opera house. Were the footmen surprised to see a muscle car owner get out in top hat and tails! No more redneck slobs in wife-beaters!

As far as street-racing is concerned, I think it vulgar to rev one's engine. I roll down the window and politely yell "Would you be interested in an informal contest?"

Muscle cars are back,
my chiffon is wet.
Just when I thought 'troit was in trouble,
a car comes out that makes me torred,
even if the color is misspelled.
-B. Digdug

I saw a 2009 Dodge Challenger in front of the 500 Club (no, not Jim and Tammy). I must needs buy one with my new Hello Kitty credit card. Wait...I get it... "torred" is the type of red. Ha-ha. The 500 Club's sign used to say "Open 6:00 a.m." They added "Not." Ruins the feeling of desperation. Desperation and loneliness just like Vanishing Point's Kowalski.

The Challenger's colors remind me of Rimbaud's poem Voyelles.

A Black, E White, I Red, U Green, O Blue; Some day I'll crack your nascent origins.
A Hairy corset of clacking black flies bombarding agony pits of stench-ridden darkness;
E Frankness in steamers and pavilions, lances of lofty glaciers, white kings, shivering umbels;
I Purple red spittle, laughter of sweet lips turning to rage or into penitent raptures;
U Cycles, viridian seas divinely shuddering, peace in creature-sown pasture, and peace in furrows, alchemy sows in intellectual foreheads;
O The great last Trump full of strange stridencies, Silences crossed by a s trail of angels,

O, Omega, the violet beam of his gaze!

Greek food and conceptual art

Dishes are such an important part of eating out in Greece they break them. Eating at Parea the new Greek small plates cafe at 19th and Val we were reminded of participating in a mail art show in 1984 called Forever Paradise . Our entry was to take Daniel Spoerri's Mythology & Meatballs: A Greek Island Diary-Cookbook and place a Hello Kitty "eye patch" on Spoerri's face on the title page. Now I consider that book so rare and so wonderful that I'm sorry I defaced it, if only temporarily. Spoerri is a Fluxus artist who used plates on his canvases (see above) even before Julian Schnabel. I highly recommend Spoerri's book, both as a cookbook and work of art.

Splodin' Donut

Hip companies like Apple and Dolby (hi Thomas!) are cutting down on extras for their staff parties. No more sushi or Black Oak Arkansas. Gone are the days of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Here at Digdug, however, we are not buying into that negativity. It only encourages downward spirals in this economy. In fact, we even hired genius artist and director (Johnny Mnemonic) Robert Longo to design our annual report. Take that, Google!
