Disguise The Limit

(Torin Boyd/Polaris /The New York Times)
This is very, very strange…

Deftly, Ms. Tsukioka, a 29-year-old experimental fashion designer, lifted a flap on her skirt to reveal a large sheet of cloth printed in bright red with a soft drink logo partly visible. By holding the sheet open and stepping to the side of the road, she showed how a woman walking alone could elude pursuers – by disguising herself as a vending machine.

The wearer hides behind the sheet, printed with an actual-size photo of a vending machine. Ms. Tsukioka’s clothing is still in development, but she already has several versions, including one that unfolds from a kimono and a deluxe model with four sides for more complete camouflaging.


“It is just easier for Japanese to hide,” Ms. Tsukioka said. “Making a scene would be too embarrassing.” She said her vending machine disguise was inspired by a trick used by the ancient ninja, who cloaked themselves in black blankets at night.

Now I’m trying to picture ancient ninja disguising themselves as vending machines…

Yet Another Icky Ally

Looks like Hillary has cultivated another slimeball. Another slimeball who went after her husband, in fact.

It may be sound political strategy, but every time Hill makes nice with (or employs) wankers like Mark Penn or Rupert Murdoch, it makes it awfully hard for me not to doubt her character.
