Albert Johnson, a.k.a. Prodigy -- of Mobb Deep fame, not of British electronica fame; I know it’s easy to confuse the two -- died today, which is a massive fucking bummer. I can guarantee that The Infamous will be in extra heavy rotation in my Honda, for the near future. Matter of fact, you should stop reading this for a second, put on “Eye For An Eye (Your Beef Is Mines)”, and blaze up a fat ass L. Okay, resume post. I’m not saying Prodigy would want one of these Mini Backpacks from Draught Dry Goods (available in Leather and Fur, Leather and Hair, Nude Leather, and Brown Leather), because that would be a tasteless segue into an enticing description of a product. Instead I will just abruptly switch to discussing these bags, because I’m too lazy to craft a segue that isn’t tasteless and the +TTAG Blog is about avoiding tastelessness at all costs. The first of said costs? Buying a 500 USD backpack. Pardon me: a mini backpack, because you don’t have enough possessions to justify the use of a full-sized backpack, because you spent all of your disposable income on a mini backpack. Is that circular logic? Maybe. Am I stuck in a time loop? Possibly. Are we all just living in a computer simulation that features an unrealistic quantity of expensive mini backpacks? Probably. Careful readers will note that I referred to this portion of the post as an “enticing description of a product” and I believe I’m living up to that, through the use of delicately orchestrated reverse psychology. Luxury products are meant to be unobtainable. That’s the point. I like Wendy’s. I like sticking fries in Frostys (and, yes, “Frostys” is the proper pluralization of Frosty). The experience is exquisite, but it’s not luxurious. Now, if you’re Frosty-dippin’ (which is what I’m calling it from now on) on a yacht or some other ostentatious and totally unnecessary mode of transportation, that’s a different story. How many of you own yachts? I need to throw a Frosty-dippin' party, preferably in international waters -RB
