Small Gems – The Big Ta Chai Video

There are some tremendous pop culture holes in my life experience.  Turns out the 10 years i was out of the US living in eastern Europe were the 10 years that the wildly popular TV show Seinfeld were airing.  Socially critical pieces of cultural information – like who is the soup Nazi – are lost on me.  I did not see Fight Club for many years.   And it was not until the Twin Oaks parody of The Big Lewbowski trailer came out, did i actually see the real thing..

This video was being shown off last night at a small party at the far edge of Bed Stuy last night and i realized it is just too good to leave it unpromoted.  There are lots of in-jokes for the commune, but if you have some experience with us, you might laugh as hard as i did.

    Pax, FYI, that last sentence before the video is so incoherent you may want to edit it. But if you missed the Big L when it came out, I’m glad you finally got around to it. I’ve had people take me to see it just so they could hear me laugh at it again.

    A bit of shameless self-promotion here, but if you enjoy looking at the lighter side of communal living, you might enjoy my new blog: http://lagooncommune.blogspot.com/

    I do reference Twin Oaks and Acorn in Chapter Two of my story. (Just published.)
