ALF was a popular TV show when I was a kid but I never watched because it looked stupid. If only I had seen the show in German, things would have been different.
Probably not that big a deal, but I’m inordinately proud that after being a member of MetaFilter for two-and-a-half years I’ve finally made a front page post. And on the esoteric topic of photographs modeled on Dutch still-life no less. Usually when I find something I think is “best of the web” I search MetaFilter and find that someone’s already posted it, often years earlier. At last I found something unique.
