On Disaster Footage from the Department of Homeland Security


In which The Gay Recluse ponders the role of technology in the transformation of the monumental into the mundane (and vice versa).

Date of Incident: January 15, 2008

Time: 6:34pm.

Causes of Disaster: Narrow countertop; careless placement of container; fatigue; needless “multi-tasking.”

Remarks: After much debate about whether to even supplement the salad in question — upon which it can be noted that dressing had already been poured — the decision was hastily made to go ahead with the plan; unfortunately the container did not survive the impact with the floor, and tomatoes were scattered everywhere.

Dear readers, we invite you to submit your own disaster footage from the department of homeland security, which we will reprint as part of a regular feature on The Gay Recluse. Send photographs and any relevant information you would like us to be aware of (background conditions, attribution, etc.) to thegayrecluse@gmail.com.
