phonepics from Kakania [Jul. 23rd, 2013|10:37 pm]

Robert Musil referred to the Austro-Hungarian Empire as "Kakania" ie Poopoostan, and sometimes, with all the dog crap here, it still seems a fitting moniker for this Mitteleuropa capital, So here are some phonepics from Kakania,

It says "The business card of my master, (signed) Dog". The dog crap is everywhere here. My neighbourhood is dirty.

Haha, I love the Czechoslovakiform turd.

Wasn't 'Kakania' also a play on "k.u.k." (kaiserlich und königlich) that was prefixed to everything official in the old Empire?

Glad you like the Czech turd .. when I saw it I immediately recognized the shape .. pretty close. I'm not looking so closely at shit right now, its kinda gross ::))

Yes Kakania is a play on kaiserlich und königlich .. I havent read Musil's The Man Without Qualities but I do have Young Torless.

Why would such good etched glass be partially covered by a security sign?
