Deliberate Juxtapositions

There's something quaint about the way the western media was panting about the North Korean coach's press conference at the World Cup yesterday - it was almost like watching the boys chase after the mysterious new girl in class, prompting all sorts of adolescent voyeurism, lust and fantasizing. Marina Hyde on the conference and the "hacksis of evil" here.

True Blood is my favorite TV show after watching it on HBO a few months back. The new season just debuted and it sounds as though it could be wilder and bloodier than before.

And as for the most deliberate commercial juxtaposition I have seen in the real world: an arms and ammunition store is situated right next to an SBI branch and ATM here in Cochin. Makes sense, that.
