Volunteeer Tailgate Party Time

The XXIX running of the Volunteer Tailgate Party is up over at Rebel Yell. "Just Cause I Talk Slow Don't Mean I'm Stupid." It's the usual biweekly selection of blogging goodness from the Usual Gang of Idiots. Great reading all around and a chance to sample some very good writing and blogging.

For example, Gunner over at No Quarters has a link to an incredibly bizarre Japanese program where a man was locked naked in a bare apartment for a year, with only mail-in postcards to thousands of contests as his source for clothes, food, entertainment, etc. There were video cameras! It makes Survivor look easy.

That link led to this, an overview of some of the strangeness that is Japanese television. If you think American television is crass and stupid, you ain't seen nothing yet.

So, go to the VTP and browse around. You won't be disappointed.
