Having just watched Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig, I was looking for Tachikoma models. I love those little guys, thay’re so cute, I even named my UMPC after them.

Anyway, in the Amazon “Customers Who Bought This Also Bought” section there was a link to a messenger bag with the Laughing Man logo from the first Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex.

I haven’t watched the first Stand Alone Complex, so I looked up the Laughing Man, and it’s amazing.

The caption on the Laughing Man logo is the first line from a quote from J. D. Salinger‘s Catcher in the Rye:

I thought what I’d do was, I’d pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn’t have to have any goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something they’d have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over to me. They’d get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I’d be through with having conversations for the rest of my life.

As an introvert, could I love that quote any more? No, I could not.

I haven’t actually read any Salinger either but because of this I just might have to.
