1991 was 20 years ago

I mentioned before I was really enjoying Top Gear. I’d say they jumped the shark around 2007-08. I haven’t watched the most recent season, but I just finished the one before that and unfortunately it was low on content and leaned heavily on over-mortgaged personalities. And so it was amusing to take a look at how things were back in 1989. Was TV really that … um, <em>bad</em>? It doesn’t feel that long ago.

Here’s Clarkeson dressed like Tears for Fears.

I’m only drivin

Currently in hoi an on the central coast of Vietnam. It’s pretty much the same as I remember it. Things are a little more expensive. They used to have this mineral water in a glass bottle but I can’t find it anywhere now. Also the last time I was here I saw several of these unvonstructed dump trucks–the front didn’t have any cover. Haven’t seen any of them.
