see more glass

So I like to listen to podcasts of "This American Life" (the radio show on NPR) while commuting to work, because I am a nerd and this was my destiny. I am particularly enamored of the host, Ira Glass, who I always envisioned as looking like a cross between Woody Allen and Moby.





That's the thing about radio. You can make the stars of your favorite show look however you like in your head. I have wondered, however, what Ira Glass really looks like. I deliberated for a long time against actually trying to Google and image of him, figuring it would only destroy my mind-picture and ruin all subsequent podcasts of "This American Life," because I would forever be thinking, "Oh man, I can't believe that Ira Glass looks like that." Like when I looked up a picture of Elvis Duran after listening to his morning show incessantly during high school. I don't quite know what I though Elvis Duran really looked like, but I can tell you that I did not expect that he would look like Mr. Belding's evil twin. However--back to NPR now--curiosity got the better of me, so finally today, post-call, when all the really productive stuff happens, I finally found a picture of Ira Glass.




Wow. Did I call it or what? I did not expect the dash of Hugh Grant sneaking in there, but on the whole, I am pretty satisfied. Now the question is: is it possible to hear big black glasses in someone's voice? Or does it just take someone with big black glasses themselves to instinctively recognize a member of their own tribe?

  11. When thinking about http://www.faucetsmarket.com/bathroom-accessory-bathroom-mirrors-c-4_5.html we need to remember that the bathroom, as we know it, is still relatively new. Before 1870, Victorians would slide into a hip Kitchen faucet in front of the fire. These shallow Antique brass faucet were curved up the back making a comfortable rest and were made of iron or zinc, usually painted dark brown on the outside and cream or marbled on the inside. http://www.faucetsmarket.com/
