Today I went to Kwantum with Marleen Bos and young Ruby. In case you are unaware, Kwantum is a home goods store that I am not fond of. I was going to write this blog about how Kwantum kind of sucks, but I have changed my mind. Now the blog is going to be about how Kwantum almost entirely sucks. To be fair, they sell lots of useful things. We bought light bulbs there today. It's getting harder and harder to find incandescent bulbs, but Kwantum has them, and more importantly, they have the ones that we need. They also sell mops, cleaning supplies, and other shit like that. The rug in our living room was purchased at Kwantum. The rug does not suck. Once upon a time, I wrote about our rug shopping experience, in case you are interested.

Anyway, here are a few items that caught my eye in Kwantum today. Some suck. Some are awesome. You decide which is which. Check the bottom of the post for answers.

1- 5 meters of Green bendy wire Evidently this is for binding things, but I could probably find other uses for it. The outer insulation(?) is quite soft. It's affordable, too!

2 - Greco-Roman busts If this is something that you would like in your house you should go to Kwantum.

3 - Heart canvas  It is sort of difficult for me to mask how I feel about these things. I'm trying to be neutral, but how much can I say about this without revealing that it might suck.

4 - Tin that looks like a dishwasher What can't you do with this. It boggles my mind that it is the same price as the Heart canvas.

5 - The Just Fabulous line These were the only examples I saw, but there could be others. It reminds me of this. "He's very good." By the way, have you ever seen a painted cutting board before? That's just fabulous.

I encourage you to check out Kwantum if you need something for your shitty home. Perhaps you won't think it sucks as much as I do. If you have a baby, bring it with you. I brought mine, and it made the experience much better. Look at the baby sized shopping carts they have.

On a totally unrelated note, you should go here and vote for me
When I say vote, I mean click the link, and then comment on that page. Say something about what you see, or what you think it means. You can comment here, too, but that's not going to help me. I know I'm not going to win. One of the more motivated self-promoters with hundreds of FB friends will win. Hopefully, that person will also be super good. I just think it would be nice if the contest people noticed me. Also, take a look around on the contest site. There are a few that I am quite fond of. With Kwantum, suckiness is black and white. This contest has a wide range. It goes from "totally sucky" all the way to "freaking good." 
Oh yeah, tell your friends. Tell you enemies, too. 

If it wasn't too obvious, here are the answers: 1 is awesome. 2 sucks. 3 sucks. 4 is awesome. 5 pretty much sucks, especially the cutting board. I didn't show them, but incandescent light bulbs are awesome, too. 

Good bye, 
Jim Turbert

The tin kind off sucks too, it would be better without the print.
