Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Sparkly Rose in a Water Globe

When I was a child, our family owned an object which I believed to be the most beautiful thing on the planet: a real Red Rose, preserved in wax and displayed inside a water-filled, glass globe which sat on a black plastic base. It captivated me. I would stare at this exquisite object for extended periods of time, thinking it must surely be quite precious and expensive. In hindsight, it was impossibly tacky and kitsch, but when you’re feeling it, who gives a shit? My point is that I flashed-back on that wax-dipped Red Rose in the glass globe immediate when I saw this similarly tacky Pink Glittery Rose in its own fishbowl-like globe for sale on the street outside a Deli that recently opened on the corner of 14th Street and Avenue A. Ah, sweet, sweet nostalgia.

It’s funny to think that so many adults have never known a life where NBC’s late night comedy sketch program, Saturday Night Live did not exist, but it’s not so weird considering the show is currently celebrating its 40th year on the air. If you’re even a casual fan of the show and you live anywhere near NYC, you should make a point to see Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition, an independent and ridiculously comprehensive showcase collecting sets, props, photos, costumes, film clips and every type of random ephemera covering the show’s history, from the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players up to today.

Yes, It Exists: Colon Blow

During Saturday Night Live‘s Season 15, way back in 1989, the late Phil Hartman starred in one of the series more hilarious commercial parodies for a fictional product called Colon Blow, spoofing the new wave of high fiber cereals. In the spot, Phil is a typical man sitting down to have a bowl of cereal when an off-camera announcer asks him, how many bowls of his regular oat bran cereal would he have to eat to get as much fiber as Colon Blow. It turns out to be something like 30 thousand bowls, which then form a towering pyramid, with Phil perched atop of them all. Priceless.

I took this photo of a box of Colon Blow, perfectly emulating the original fake product package, in the candy emporium, It’Sugar, located downtown on Broadway in NYC’s NoHo. Actually filled with Nature’s Best crispy energy granola, a 16 ounce box sells for $15.99!
