  • Wow.

    Speaking of conspicuous consumption, and contested landscapes of leisure, it occurs to me that bathing machines of a different sort can still be found at any public boat ramp on a summer weekend.

    In fact, in Portland, OR, there's a proposal in the works for a new riverfront storage tower where cigarette boat/bathing machines would be launched on rails like King Alphonso's cabana here:

  • I have a friend who recently retired. He lives in an RV and "rents" a power pole on a vacant lot at a nearby beach. Weekend crowds, football games, NASCAR, and tropical storms -- -- he just drives away. Not really that different an idea.
