More Ethnography

I've been diving into this  Wittgenstein Reads Weininger tome, by Stern and Szabados, an anthology.  Alex found it and graciously let me dig in.  He's more into meditating these days, takes these things in chapters.  I understand.

Movie Night at the Blue House (private party format) featured the season premier of Portlandia, and the great movie Being There with Peter Sellers. 

Lindsey wasn't sure how to take the "pickle anything" joke, as she does take that attitude, felt targeted.  Portlanders are generally cheered by this show though.  Spoofs not bombs. 

Everyone loved Being There.  Jack Warden has aspects of Gene Hackman, as does MacLaine of Jane Fonda.
