nato green

Ecco come ricordo io le cose. Ricordo le storie. Unisco i punti e viene fuori una storia. E i punti che non stanno bene nella storia magari scivolano via. Come quando trovi una costellazione. Guardi il cielo e non vedi tutte le stelle. Le stelle sembrano tutte le stesso immenso cacchio di caos che sono. Ma tu vuoi vedere delle forme; vuoi vedere delle storie, così le isoli nel cielo. Vedi connessioni ovunque, quindi, alla fine della fiera, tu sei un narratore nato.

This makes up my current EDC. I’ve made upgrades to my Port Wallet with world famous Horween reversed Shell Cordovan leather, so that the Genuine Horween Shell Cordovan stamp is visible from the outside. I also prefer the feel of the inside of this leather, over the glossy outer finish. I’ve also recently picked up a bronze Helberg CH6 watch that looks just fantastic with the patina and antiquing done with some Liver of Sulfer. I went straight to work building a Horween Shell Cordovan leather strap and dying it in a custom olive green oil dye that I mixed up. The green and bronze go together great. The Warby Parker sunnies are also a new addition, and were a great barter that I traded for my leather goods. Solid build on them, and I’m enjoying them.

When White guys in button down shirts start high-fiving, something bad is going to happen. Someone is going to get embezzled or evicted or foreclosed or invaded or colonized or occupied or hazed or redlined or executed or framed…or deported or detained or gentrified or displaced or appropriated or expropriated or exiled…or exorcised or excommunicated or waterboarded or kettled or pantsed…or bullied or pissed on or pillaged or plundered or addicted to opium or infected with syphilis or sprayed with pesticides or converted to Christianity or donkey-punched…

Comedian Nato Green is a native San Franciscan who knows nothing about sports. Even when he attends games, he mainly talks about politics and tries to get the ball dudes to form a union. So what happened when Nato went to Civic Center for an anthropological study of Giants fans at the end of Game Four? Chaos.

I’m only saddened that the crowd swallowed Nato before he could deliver his socio-economic analysis of Venezuelan baseball players and the implications for post-Chavez Central American politics. In other words, rally thesis!
