Who’s that next to Eszter Hargittai?

by Kieran Healy on June 5, 2006



Maybe she can get him to guest-blog. Not the guy in the bandanna.

On (our) left you mean? Willie Nelson?

that was my first guess too.

I don’t know–looks like a really rough Chris Hedges to me (he’s teaching at Princeton now, if I remember right).

Heck, get them both to guest-blog. I bet Bandana Man has some sharp insights.

Bandana men always have something interesting and provocative to say, as do folks with capes or bowties or dolphin shorts.

I pulled up CT to show something to a friend and this is what came up, hah.

Teppo – I hope you realize that the part about dolphin shorts is begging for more information. Or am I missing something obvious here?

I was actually more curious about this guy since he and Clinton had a whole conversation. Clinton seemed really engaged, it was neat. Bandana man made it onto that photo as well, by the way. Secret secret service?:)

You are right – I hesitated on the dolphin shorts, but just threw it in for good measure and simple entertainment value. I have interesting friends with capes (at least ones who wish they could wear one without being ostracized), bandanas and bowties, but none with dolphin shorts (perhaps my loss, though I don’t think so).

I think she meant, what are dolphin shorts? Or if she didn’t mean it, I do.

Eszter 06.06.06 at 12:19 am

I thought that just meant shorts with dolphins, but it turns out I may have been wrong. Either way, it would require some additional explanation, but it looks like Teppo doesn’t have more in-depth info to share.

Well, not to people without dolphin shorts…

That bandanna look is really sexy. I think I’m gonna start dressing like that to the office.

Clinton = long blog posts about how we’re all stakeholders in each other’s future.

Bandana Man = long blog posts about some awesome concerts by the Marshall Tucker Band.

I leave the choice to the proprietors.

By the way, Brooks Brothers’ venerable Lobster-Crab Shorts are on sale!

bad Jim 06.06.06 at 2:41 am

Why do brief posts featuring Clinton so frequently devolve into discussions of shorts?

15

Anna 06.06.06 at 3:47 am

I think this bandanna look is in but not for the office.

Bad news guys – upon closer inspection I think it turns out to be a backwards baseball cap (possibly with dolphins on it, but unverifiably so)

17

Richard Bellamy 06.06.06 at 9:16 am

True. Backward baseball cap guys never have anything interesting to say.

Unless they are also wearing catcher’s gear.

18

JakeBCool 06.06.06 at 3:20 pm

But only if they’re not actually baseball players.

19

S. E. Kaufman 06.06.06 at 4:08 pm

I resemble and resent that remark. I speak for all backward baseball cap guys when I say “it’s a generational thing.” Even when I’m tenured somewhere prestigious–or employed even–I will continue sans gear to reverse my Mets cap proudly.

Ian B Gibson 06.06.06 at 7:41 pm

Guest where Clinton’s right hand is (judging by the grin on his face, I’d say it’s obvious..)?

21

W. Kiernan 06.07.06 at 11:47 am

Just curious, why does anyone who’s not wearing a hardhat ever need a bandanna wrapped around his head?

Regarding backward baseball caps, survey eye-men traditionally wear their hats backwards, so as they lean their heads up to the eyepiece the brim won’t bump the gun. I remember thinking, when that backwards-hats thing became fashionable amongst the youths, “Where’d all these damn instrument men come from alla sudden?”

22

Eszter 06.07.06 at 11:54 am

FYI, judging from this photo, it’s not a baseball cap turned backwards.

23

Chris Corrigan 06.07.06 at 2:50 pm

Man, it seems the quality of the secret service guard really changes the further away you get from being President. Makes me wonder who guards Carter these days…

24

JP 06.08.06 at 11:50 am

kaufman, that wasn’t interesting at all.

25

Neil 06.09.06 at 12:50 am

I dont think this bandanna look is in any ways impressive. Its my normal official wears.
