The best you could do

When I was in the States, Yoko and I went with my brother to one of the most bourgeoisie places I have ever been to: a running shoe store. At this store, very friendly salespeople try to sell you a load of bullshit by telling you that you need to change running shoes every 300 or 400 or 500 miles or something ridiculous like that. My bourgeoisie brother who is training for the big bourgeoisie super marathon, bought new shoes. I instead opted to hold out on my old Spalding set. I mean, every 400 miles is like every four months.

When I went to Tokyo this weekend I finally folded and got new shoes. Of course, I still support the revolution, but new running shoes, and new running shoes from Nike, are fucking awesome. They respond and you bounce. Your feet stop swimming around and stay in one place.

I got Internet at my desk at work finally which means I will be updating all the time now. Dumb updates, I assure you, but updates.
