I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

Amazon Marketing Gets Worse!

props to my homey nihilistic_kid for this bit of comedy gold:
Amazon has an apparel store now! They sell clothing!

So I figured I'd see what clothing they suggest would go well with various works of literature.

Naked Lunch
by William S. Burroughs
Customers who shopped for this item also wear:
Clean Underwear from Amazon's Gap Store
Cashmere Sweaters from Amazon's Lands' End Store
Tommy Bahama Shirts from Amazon's Nordstrom Store
Performance Fleece from Amazon's Old Navy Store

--I have little difficulty imagining Mr. Burroughs recommending the above quite heartily. If you've ever heard his voice, imagine it saying this: 'Oh, and yes, the clean underwear from the Gap is fantastic for wearing when the mugwump has ridden you, that's what the addicts all say...'

Lolita (Vintage International)
by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov
Customers who shopped for this item also wear:
Clean Underwear from Amazon's Eddie Bauer Store
Ladybug Rain Boots from Amazon's Nordstrom Store
Suede Headwraps from Amazon's International Male Store
Cheetah Print Slippers from Amazon's Old Navy Store

--I'm not sure what they're saying about ol' Vladimir here. But I don't think I like it.

And then, mysteriously, they stopped recommending clothing items to me. UTTERLY STOPPED. WHAM.
  • Not just underwear, but CLEAN underwear!

    I like how they put that adjective in there.

    So what, if I read "Filth" does that mean I get underwear without the adjective, or actual soiled underwear?!
  • "props from my homey"?
    • Let me get this straight. You're worried about me because I referred to a Greek-American New Yorker nominated for the 2001 Stoker as 'homey', rather than wondering if I'm being sardonic in the useage there?
      • I had always assumed that Homey is not a word I would ever hear come out of your mouth.
        At least not that usage.

        "Cafe Abir is a very homey place." That is a usage I would expect from you.
