deconstructing the trucker hat trajectory

buried in the snarky "Eulogy for the Trucker Hat" is the following gem:

"I guess I'm saying that your piece was about the wrong thing. Why the need? Why the need to have to go around knocking the wind out of everyone? That's the Willamsburg/Austin/No Ho thing to do. Not the wearing of the Trucker Hat, but the being faux angry at the proliferation of the Trukcer Hat. To be above the Trucker Hat. I agree with Stephen King, why is everyone so insecure in New York about their intelligence? Why does everyone in Brooklyn have to remind you of how they've seen it all before, to recognize a trend, discover it's fiber, and then bray loudly that it's over."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
