The Collecting Gene

Glyn Baker geograph.org.uk

From moonshine jugs to homely tchotchkes, commentator Nan Graham observes that every trinket was once someone's treasure,  and every treasure has a story.   While the "gathering" gene may be hereditary,  it's not limited to the Graham Family... even oxen in the field appreciate a good collector's item.

RoboBar

Z_Dead, London, UK

Commentator Philip Gerard gives some serious thought to the state of the service industry.  From airline bottles to steam cleaning, modern hotel rooms provide a full menu of automated amenities.  And yet, it's the human element that's missing.   Sure, there's no one to tip - but nothing is ever on the house and come checkout, there's no such thing as spare change.

Time-Out Chair

April 23 2011 Matthew Paul Argall

Asia Brown struggles, like all of us, with the difference between what we want to say - and what we actually do declare.  While spending time ruminating between right vs.  less appropriate words in an official Time-Out Chair, Brown channels her inner - and sometimes outer - Janet Jackson, to find the courage to make the funkiest choice possible at any given moment. 

WHQR welcomes Asia Brown as a new Commentator!

Bald Men Rule

Annie Gray Johnston

Commentator Annie Gray Johnston reminisces about hairdos - and hair - gone by.  From surfer-dude shag to ultra-receding razamatazz, Johnston applauds the absence of fussy locks and welcomes the shift to a smooth, shiny scalp.  

There's nothing like a man who grows bald gracefully.
