More Zeitgeist Miscellanea (Beckham, Big Bird and the Bard)

David Beckham

Zeitgeist-time again. Following last week‘s notes (on Dustin Hoffman and Michael C Hall), here’s another unlikely duo – soccer ace, David Beckham and Sesame Street hero, Big Bird.

First off, “Becks”, as he’s affectionately known, (one half of “Posh and Becks“). English tabloids are aghast at his recent Milanese shenanigans! Paparazzi follow him (more than ever, it seems, these days). And of late, he’s been wowing them with his Nat Finkelstein 2K Allen Ginsberg t-shirt!

Would it be crass to suggest that there are other t shirts available?

There’s also this (and, to give City Lights props, their Howl t-shirt), and, for a limited time (still!) – this.
We’re none too sure of the plethora of products available at Cafe (which, we’d like to take this opportunity to say, we have absolutely nothing to do with!).

Turning now to Big Bird, no idea when this particular snap was taken, but, pretty hilarious, n’est-ce-pas?

We’ll be back soon with more portentous matters!
