“On some nights New York is as hot as Bangkok. The whole continent seems to have moved from its place and slid nearer the equator, the bitter gray Atlantic to have become green and tropical, and the people, thronging the streets, barbaric fellahin among the stupendous monuments of their mystery, the lights of which, a dazing profusion, climb upward endlessly into the heat of the sky.”

Saul Bellow, The Victim, 1947

Hi from the five boroughs of Bangkok. It’s very hot and it’s really humid, as if often is this time of year.

The one and only ” benefit ” of such days and nights is that you are relieved from any duties to walk fast, or from any form of physical exercise. You seek out some shade, or you walk into an air conditioned space, and you endeavor to do nothing until the heat wave passes.

  1. Europe’s summer is crap so far. North America and Europe have a loose, inverse relationship. When one is hot the other is milder and wetter. When one has a cold winter the other is less cold than usual.

  2. looks nice…. what is the temp it reached 96F with a feel of 108 here nowhere pa….

  3. no not at that level, it’s at 90% in Pa…..

    hey tom I don’t have your email you do have mine if not just ask…. if you have any issues with the site I would appreciate feedback and or suggestions…. also too every post with this editor has to have a featured picture. It can be about the post or a signature pic representing you… I don’t care you pick, but you have to designate a pic or I get a grey box in the feed….

    All the feeds aren’t set right now there is a lot of repition that will be fixed with feeds hopefully from news feeds from both sides of the pond.

    Enjoy your trip dude, wish I was there Bangkok is one of the few places I’d like to visit

  4. Cheer up Phantom. You could be in Seattle or Vancouver or Boise. Their temperature records have been shattered in the past few days. But it’s just “natural variability” so that’s all right, nothing to worry about.

  5. Troll must hate atw with a burning passion.

    First he bans and drives off 95% of the commenters.

    Now he inflicts this God awful atrocity on the dozen people who still bother to drop by for Pete’s posts.

    This is the worst website redesign I’ve ever seen. It’s absolute shit.

    It looks like a bizarre, flashing paean to David’s podcasts and various news sites.

    It’s simply god awful. And it loads sooo slow, which may be a small mercy.

    1. go to hell Daphne…..

      The site is being be rebuilt, it would be nice if you left and just go hang out with the NRA contingent at their site.

      I’m doing my best not to tell you what I really think, but you are a POS.

  6. And comments don’t format properly.

    Not surprised.

    Troll, you aren’t good at blogging. Maybe take up another hobby.

  7. Off topic but this new site absolutely sucks, nothing else has driven me away from this site but this bullshit redesign probably will

    1. Yep. It’s truly fucking awful in every possible way.

      I suspect Mr. Moore will be thoroughly appalled and hate this gross monstrosity with the laser heat of ten thousand suns.

      Atw had a good, long run.

      It’s ironic that Troll is the one who killed it.

  8. To everyone the site is being rebuilt.

    The people who hate it only come here to insult the site and me on the rare occasion you show up. You can all go to hell.

    The site is not for you, it’s for David Pete and Me….

    you are guests in my house and all you want to do is piss on me….. neither of you contribute ANYTHING, not even good conversation. Your only purpose is to sow discontent and it’s not welcome or wanted.

    Daphne I promised that you would never be banned, and I have no desire to ban anyone, but YOU are the only one who still comes here and bears there ass…. and it ain’t worth seeing sweetie.
