Thanksgiving On Karpland And Normal Barbie…

I believe Ivan has been feeling a bit depressed these days and who can blame him. No turkey dinner and the atmosphere is a bit dismal. It’s also Black Friday and there is nowhere to shop. Deliveries take weeks and Amazon finds it hard to deliver packages to the islands. So forget about the holidays and that new iPhone. Besides I don’t know if they accept Bit Coins which is the official currency of Karpland.

And it being Black Friday I assume everyone is out shopping and eating leftovers.

I like the art and I find memorial graffiti to be very important. It documents the fallen faces from the “hood” so to speak and depicts a culture we are so ready to dismiss and have neglected. Doesn’t matter whose side you’re on, just the fact that on some level it’s being documented.

And here is another holiday shopping shocker:

Hopefully this won’t be pulled off the web and/or I won’t be censored.
