I'm currently reading The Know-It-All. I encountered a passage about René Descartes' fetish for cross-eyed women. The author speculates on how hard it must have been for Descartes to indulge his fetish at the time, and how easy it must be now, what with a group for every imagineable fetish on the internet. Naturally this sent me to google, where I discovered this Infinitely Improbable Story about Prague!
"I hadn’t been to Prague for about 10 years before I made my secret trip to the city in summer 2004. There are two reasons why it can be called a secret trip: First, several of my friends and members of my family live in the city; second, I wanted to wear strong glasses for a few days in the city. To understand the latter reason it is to say I am really obsessed with strong glasses."
Kabinky is not the act, but the location. Kabinky is the private stall (or cabinet).
Brigham took this photo in one of Prague's magnificent libraries. Probably the most magnificent, as it was pretty darn magnificent! But I did not go with him, and am not sure of the name...
eeTeeD's never-ending quest to make the world agree with him led me to this post about Famous Studios cartoons, via a comment here. I have to admit my eyes were opened. I always thought of Famous Studios cartoons as lame and tame. I'm not sure if I've ever even seen the toons these stills are pulled from. I had no idea Baby Huey and Herman et al were so Itchy & Scratchy violent!
Also thanks eeTeeD for the link to this comic that is similar in tone to my Dooky comic. It's eerie to remember reading this is a jaded old fart, while reading all these kids commenting about how it warped them as a child.
