Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Lifestyle Brand of Yak Leather Footwear Sells for Up to $300 a Pair
By Lisa Sanders
NEW YORK (AdAge.com) -- Consumers who love their Hummers, or covet someone else's, can now put their feet in a pair of Hummer-branded shoes.

As General Motors Corp.'s Hummer division this month unveils its newest models -- the H3T and H2-SUT -- one-year-old Hummer Footwear in February will add to its current line of men's shoes and boots items such as waterproof outdoor boots, shearling boots and slippers.

"This is a lifestyle brand," said Jordan Saliman, president of Hummer Footwear, a division of EJ Footwear. "We want to participate in consumers lives from the time they get up to the time they go to bed." [...]
Man, gotta get me some YAK! And each shoe only weighs 6400 pounds!

Anyway, I don't quite know if I want Hummer participating in my life when I cover up in the sheets. I'll let all of you fill in your own jokes about knobby tire treads and go-anywhere capabilities. And the name Hummer, for that matter.
